Pros: Works great! Steady voltage coming to computer plus It keeps me on long enough to save everything. I live in an area prone to quick outages and run multiple virtual machines for work. It was a real hassle for a 10 second outage before this came in.
Cons: the battery plugs need to be more spread out
Overall Review: I could probably get better time if I limited it to one screen instead of all 3, but it's still good for 15 minutes with 3 23", modem, router and PC tower all on the battery side.
great with Intel chipset
Pros: This thing is faster than any other SSD I've owned if installed with an Intel chipset. That is the chipset, not the CPU.
Cons: Initially installed in my desktop which is AMD and couldn't tune or anything as the Intel SSD toolbox couldn't communicate with it because it wasn't an Intel chipset. This should in no way be a hindrance for a drive!
Overall Review: Luckily enough my laptop was a willing transplant patient. If I hadn't had an Intel chipset board to use this with I would have been infuriated. I honestly don't know how to rate this. If you do have compatible hardware it's a 5; if not it's a 1/4 of an egg as it's slower than a HDD. You can find all sorts of articles about this by searching something like "The Intel SSD Toolbox cannot communicate with the selected Intel SSD"
This works perfect!!!
Pros: Small, works amazingly
Cons: I wouldn't make me drinks.
Overall Review: it was perfectly plug and play for Windows 7 and Oracle Linux and actually improved the signal. I gave it to a friend after testing and they're still using it. if i give anything to a friend that's a huge recommendation. I'd easily suggest this to someone looking for better coverage.
This works great!!
Pros: Small, works, Easy to set up...
Cons: Did not work with a hidden wireless signal
Overall Review: Once I allowed my wireless to be open it worked great. I didn't want my wireless signal advertised as that's the first character, but if you're not super conscientious of security this works great. All in all I'd recommend it to friends, which says a lot.
These things are great!!
Pros: They're lightweight, bright as advertised, very low cost to run, spread light well. Feel free to change bare-handed even after being on for a while.
Cons: not natural light style, but weren't advertised as such either.
Overall Review: I've both measured and noticed a reduced energy bill by using these throughout my house. Most are the 60 watt versions, but these in particular are used in smaller areas and really spread the light out more than I thought they would.
All the power, half the price and size.
Pros: Small form factor. Powerful. Cheaper than most. Lights are not overbearing. More than fast enough for Time Warner max speeds. Plug and play. Better throughput than the TWC supplied one. Faster overall speeds. Colored lights to signify if communication is happening or not (at least I think) They are green when it's working anyway. I truly would recommend this to a friend.
Cons: No instruction manual included. Like I said, this truly was plug and play, but a little pamphlet would have been nice just to let me know if the lights did have different colors for indication or other small factors that would just be nice to know. Yes, I really had to think for some con and this was the best I could come up with.
Overall Review: A simple little Docsis 3.0 cable modem that just works. I just plugged it in, hooked up the coax, plugged it into my router, activated and all was good. My technology illiterate grandmother could have done this. I usually set my modems to pass-through so that my router sees the outside IP address and I didn't even have to worry about that. It just fell into place and worked... flawlessly. I didn't know of an activation page coming up for ISPs, but I just called in and gave them the MAC and within 60 seconds all was working.
