Pros: Solid well made PSU Excellent Cabling/ length, easy routing I only needed to use one of the modular plugs the main bundle pretty much had it covered except for the extra 4-pin CPU power connector on the Z590 board. Very Quiet, Plenty of cabling options for addons.
Cons: No super flower sticker!! j/k no cons
Overall Review: Bought for new i7 1100k/Z590 build working very well Would buy it again
Pros: Fast formatting
Fast sustained throughput using my cheap usb adapter for testing 87MBs write / 96 MBs read
comes with SD Adapter card
Overall Review: Decent pricing + Performance = Recommended Purchase.
Pros: Top Notch gaming CPUPCI-E 4.0 NVME M.2 on Z590Does not run overly hot, 100.4 F under load with a H100I water coolerCurrently better bang for the buck than AMD or i9
Cons: Does not come with a cooler... what does anymore.
Overall Review: Get a good cooler and you won't have any issues.With i9 and Ryzen being both overly expensive and out of stock the i7 1100k will not leave you wishing you'd gotten something different
Pros: Poor connectivity
Cons: Poor connectivity CSR software is outdated and terrible
Overall Review: You get what you pay for
Pros: It integrates pretty seamlessly into windows settings page
The sound is very good, connection is strong with BT 5.0 headphones no dropouts where I had dropouts and delay with BT 4.2
It reports device battery life if the connected device supports it
Device adding / controll is as good as a wired connection.
Device switching between wired speakers/devices, RF headset/devices and BT headset/devices works like it should in windows
No audio delay with BT 5.0 audio watching video or plating games
Better BT drivers and integration.
No constant balloon notifications when you press certain keys like the old CSR stack BT software drivers!!!
Cons: It took a long time to get, but arrived just inside the stated shipping time.
Will not work properly in any of my USB 3.0 ports, has to use a USB 2.0, it's possible it could be an issue with my machine.
Install software was initially confusing until I realized the Orico driver in Windows changed the way it handles BT integration as opposed to how the old CSR stack works and sits in the tray all the time. This only shows up in the tray if you turn BT on in the windows settings page.
You have to go to the Orico main chinese website first to get redirected back to the orico.us site to get the driver...I don't like that part but the end result is good enough I won't knock it any stars.
Overall Review: By far the best USB Bluetooth dongle I've ever used. I bought this and a semi cheap BT 5.0 set of earbuds, they sound almost as good as my RF wireless headset that cost 5x the combo, even in fps gaming.
I've had more than a few Bluetooth dongles on my PC's over the years. most worked OK for mouse / keyboard general use. but as far as audio on a PC they were all trash. they sonded bad and constantly dropped connection if I moved around my place at all. This one is solid in my current apt, no dropouts even through a couple of metal framed walls.
I've had other so-called BT 5.0 dongles that use the CSR software, they are horrible in windows, don't waste your time. Get this one.
Pros: Faster throughput and smart connect WiFi with better security than an AC router.
Fairly seamless replacing my old router
Has an app with remote management
2.4ghz WiFi speed, throughput doubled over AC1750
5ghz speed, throughput and especially connection stability greatly improved over AC1750
No more random ethernet device connection drops
Cons: At first the app was slow and jenky, once I got everything setup it was a lot less jenky but still slow.
Front Panel LEDs are pretty bright.
Overall Review: I got the RAX20 to replace a TP link Archer C7. After getting the RAX20 set up and did some Internet speed tests on all the devices and a couple hours of Network testing, streaming 4k and file transfers I took my C7 and drop kicked it into the dumpster.
Pros: Small TFX case that will house a M-ATX Mobo. Power supply is decent enough. Quick release on the top cover, no need for screws unless you want them.
Cons: The optical drive tray limits the CPU cooler height considerably. It is holed for airflow but its limited. you can remove it and make room but it will remove support for the top lid so don't set anything with any weight on it with out it. **Not a con** but good to know before buying this case: It is designed to exhaust out of the front with an 80mm PWM fan and draw air in over the i/o plate opening, it works much better than I thought it would keeping the internals cool.
Overall Review: Nice little SFF HTPC case in TFX form factor with a decent 300w power supply(Powerman branded). I did get a Silverstone 300w anyway and will keep the InWin Powerman for a spare. I'm packing in an ASUS H97M-E M-ATX mobo, i7 4790 16gb Ram, 1tb SSD, GTX 1650 LP. I dremeled out a better opening for CPU cooler airflow in the support tray.
Pros: Inexpensive, as fast as any SATA SSD out there
Overall Review: If you're looking for a cheap 1TB SSD this is it when on sale
Pros: Well built, a lot of hubs are cheap plastic and even cheaper switches and connectors, this one is a tank.
Like any hub Plug and play
Has it's own 4A power supply.
Works great on my Android TV
Compatible with Android/PC/iOS
Current protected smart charge ports
A very heavy duty USB 3.0 cable approx 5ft in length! The longest I have come across
Overall Review: In an ocean of hubs out there this one is well above average in its construction and the length of the beefy cable alone is reason enough to buy it.
Pros: It runs at advertised speeds
Overall Review: I would recommend this product
Pros: Runs cool and quiet in my NAS, drive synced to the array with no issue.
Overall Review: I'm using this in an 18TB 5 drive array with 4 other HGST He8 7.2k drives. they never get over 98F.
Pros: None it is useless to me as it DOES NOT COME WITH LOW PROFILE BRACKET
Cons: DOES NOT COME WITH LOW PROFILE BRACKET
Overall Review: I needed a low profile car with low profile bracket. The description pictures show a low profile bracket included but it DOES NOT COME WITH LOW PROFILE BRACKET
Pros: Easy to work on, Front USB 3.0 & 2 fans included, includes all the necessary screws and standoffs. Motherboard tray is ported for backplane wire routing. For the price this is the best case you can get
Overall Review: Someone complained there wasn't enough room to install in this case, I don't think they realized the Hard drive mounting panel is removable, making videocard installation and case wiring easy.
Pros: 2 Mounting options, the light itself is very bright. The 2 flex points make it very easy to put the light where you need it.
Seems well made and solid
Cons: The light temperature color for some might be too high. It might be 3-4000k and would be better suited at a warmer 2700k, not a con for me.
Overall Review: I use this to light up the print bed of my Delta 3D printer and my work area around it.
Pros: Inexpensive easy to assemble and comes with several thermal pads of different thickness. Nice thick full cover heat sink. Will work in X4 X8 or X16 slot
Overall Review: Used this to clone from my single slot M.2. motherboard drive to a new XPG NVMe drive and running my OS from the Adapter card now. Its booting and running full speed. If you need an adapter for M.2 this will work, no drivers or software required
Pros: Fast reliable plug and play
Pros: Excellent Gaming Keyboard
Great aesthetic design
Durable build takes my gaming abuse
Open key deck design makes it easy to keep clean
I love the feel of these switches
Thick braided cord
Takes standard Mechanical Key Caps for personal customization
Lighting is very good, many options to choose
The price is absolutely unbeatable for a keyboard of this level of build quality.
Cons: None so far and it's taken about 1200 hours of gaming abuse.
Overall Review: For the cost of this board you absolutely cannot go wrong. It will go toe to toe with any keyboard that costs 3 to 4 times as much.
I am a destroyer of keyboards, I have had more than a few high dollar mechanical keyboards fail in about a years time. Paying over $150 for a keyboard that I know I will kill in a year or less is no longer an acceptable option, this board has made gaming great again.
Pros: A great hub, works very well,
Cons: The Cable is rediculously too short and ruins what would be a fantastic Hub for a PC with a USB C port
Overall Review: The Cable. if it were 18 to 24 in/46 to 61 cm, would be perfect. Long enough for a PC with a rear port and not too much excess cable for a Laptop/Tablet.
Pros: Comes with a large amount of bits and sanding rolls.
First time I used it it paid for itself
Cons: Cheaply made
The Chuck comes loose easily and needs to re-tightened.
Overall Review: I have only used this 3 times as I bought it as an inexpensive last resort tool for modifying things on the fly. It hasn't let me down yet but it feels so cheap I'm afraid I'll break it.
Obviously I don't use it for Manicures
Pros: Comes with Bright LED Bulb
Round base and Clamp base included
Cons: Minor tool less Assembly required not a Con for me
Overall Review: Many Lamps are so short they are almost useless, this one is a perfect height my my needs
Pros: Well designed, has a nice look to it.
Totally plug and play , depending on power draw you can use bus power or the external adapter.
Full USB 3.0 transfer speeds
Cons: None to mention at this point. If any come up I will edit this review
Overall Review: When it comes to USB 3.0 Hubs you get what you pay for this one is a bit pricey but is worth it.
Pros: Looks nice
Cons: Every Language included but page for English instructions missing. It's a brick as far as I'm concerned
The cabling it came with was just what i needed for my new Mic setup that required a 48v phantom power supply
Cons: After 3 weeks something in the power pack plug is going bad causing a noticeable high pitch whine being introduced into the audio.
There is no gain control, at the price point I didn't expect or need it.
Overall Review: Spend another $10 and get something better
Pros: Using this for vocals the audio quality is exceptional
Gorgeous design and quality construction will make anyone glad to have this Beauty in front of them
Comes with a very nice carrying case rugged enough to ride in the back with the rest of the equipment
I love the snap on pop filter
Cons: None at all
Overall Review: You will need a 48v phantom power supply. I use a NW-100 it came with cables and works great
I was on the fence between this and the AT-2020, setup with XLR to 3.5mm or USB it's all the same price point and I couldn't be happier with my choice. I love the way it sounds and it's very easy on the eyes..
I have the MTR201 connected through a Neewer NW-100 phantom power supply to a PC into a XFi Platimum Pro sound card 3.5mm Mic input.
Pros: Holds my 4.4 lb Samson Mic and Shock Mount with authority. Moves out of the way and back to where I need it, when i need it with ease.
The clamp is strong and holds it securely in place
The long arm allows me to have two boom arms side by side without issue (43 inch and 32 inch boom arms)
Rated for over 8 lbs it is strong and well made.
Overall Review: My second Neewer product that i am completely satisfied with
