Great speakers for average listening

CREATIVE LABS Pebble Modern 2.0 USB Desktop Speakers - Black
CREATIVE LABS Pebble Modern 2.0 USB Desktop Speakers - Black

Pros: Easy set up No power outlet needed, USB powered Fairly small size, desk looks cleaner Decent sound for small, usb powered speakers

Cons: None, I knew what I was buying

Overall Review: Bought these to replace speakers at work. Old speakers had one "blown" speaker that made listening to music while working annoying. I work in an old building, electric outlets are at a premium so freeing up one with usb powered speakers was a good thing. When I 1st plugged in the speakers I thought I would be RMAing them. They hissed, popped, music was distorted. It was awful! Rearranged some of the usb cords on the pc, voila! Sound! Once the hissing and popping stopped I fired up google music and threw on some tunes. If you're an audiophile, these aren't for you. But, for the average listener I think you'll be impressed with how these sound for small usb powered speakers.

Love this printer!

Pros: Very easy to get set up on my network. The ability to easily print from my tablet and phone is awesome. Even my tech challenged husband easily prints to the printer from his cell with the Brother app.

Cons: Really can't think of any!

Overall Review: So far I am loving this printer. Duplex printing, easy to scan and copy, connects to wireless network easily. My last printer was a giant Canon Pixma MX850, this Brother printer is so small in comparison yet has almost all the same features. I would definitely recommend this!

Works great, was a pain to setup

TRENDnet Wireless N 450 Mbps 18 dBm, WDS and Repeater, TEW-690AP
TRENDnet Wireless N 450 Mbps 18 dBm, WDS and Repeater, TEW-690AP

Pros: Stable, speed is great, compact

Cons: Wrong setup password provided

Overall Review: I was beyond annoyed when I kept hitting enter to setup because the documentation said there was no password. Got really angry and was ready to just hop on the egg and give this thing a horrible review. A quick search of the internet showed that admin might be the password, voila! I was in the setup. Took only a few minutes longer and it's been up and running ever since. Our farthest from the AP PC now has a better signal and comes in at it's max speed of 300. The bad reviews here baffle me. Yes, the documentation was wrong about the password, but you're past that you should be all set. We have had zero issues with ours since it was setup. It has currently been running for 22 days with no problems, the only reason that it hasn’t been up longer was a power failure 22 days ago. Don’t let the bad reviews scare you. This thing is small and compact, delivers the advertised speed and it just sits and does what it’s supposed to do.

Nice set, just received this week

Lenovo 57Y4700 Black 2.4 GHz Wireless Ultraslim Keyboard & Mouse - US English
Lenovo 57Y4700 Black 2.4 GHz Wireless Ultraslim Keyboard & Mouse - US English

Pros: Keyboard is large, stable, sturdy, well made. Mouse is a mini mouse, has a very nice feel. USB dongle is tiny.

Cons: None for me so far, will see how the battery life is (I've only had it several days now).

Overall Review: The keyboard is very sturdy feeling, other wireless keyboards I have owned have felt cheap and lightweight. The very tiny USB dongle is plugged in to one of my front panel USB ports, which live behind my system's front "door". It is so small I can close the door fully and the keyboard and mouse still work great. The mouse is the size of a notebook mouse, if you have large hands or prefer the regular sized mouse this isn't the set for you. The mouse itself has a smooth, rubber like coating that has a nice feel and keeps your hand securely in place. I would reccomend this to just about anyone. Great lenovo quality, works perfect, looks great on my desk and best of all NO WIRES!

Perfect

APRICORN 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5" DVR Expander II for Cable ADVRE2-1000
APRICORN 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5" DVR Expander II for Cable ADVRE2-1000

Pros: Easy to install, recording used space went from 79% to 11%, good documentation, all cables included, includes stand

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: Receievd the product fast as usual from the egg. Hooked it up to my SA 8300HDC. The DVR saw it right away, asked if I wanted to format it, answered yes and 2 minutes later it was up and running flawlessly. Wish I had gotten this as soon as I got the DVR. No more frustration with running out of recording space. And when the DVR goes, I still have an esata 1TB external drive (it will also connect USB for PC use).
