Review of StarTech.com Hub 4 Port Portable SuperSpeed Mini USB 3.0 Hub 4 x SuperSpeed USB 3.0 by danielclark691

Advantages: Affordable, plain design but high quality, USB 3.0 technology.
Disadvantages: Why not even up the design with 2 ports on each side?

First impressions This hub is rather slimline and compact. Compared to some hubs it is the supermodel of the hub world, measuring just 16cm x 13 cm x 4 cm. This is rather tiny, though don't let this put you off. Small is not always a negative, and ... Read review

Review of TP-LINK Switch TL-SG108 8-port Metal Gigabit Switch 8 x 10/100/1000 by davejbee

Advantages: Simpe to install, Great price. Install and forget
Disadvantages: Having an external DC adapter is a pain but nothing else I can think of

TP-Link TL-SG108 Our home network/LAN has evolved over the years. For someone who was, supposedly, a computer networking expert, I'm somewhat ashamed to admit that very little planning was involved in this evolution. Things had grown to meet immed ... Read review

A lot more storage for far less than you might expect
Review of Lenovo Iomega ix4-300d Network Storage 70B8 4 TB by dobieg

Advantages: Remarkably inexpensive given the facilities it offeres
Disadvantages: some config required and limited hardware redundancy for mission critical tasks

Let me first point out that I should have put this review under the diskless version of the device, not the 4Tb model described in the header! the only difference is that for the one I've reviewed, you supply your own hard disks, it's substantially the s ... Read review

Advantages: The price is affordable
Disadvantages: Not carry all the latest bells and whistles

I have never really owned or purchased any high end router / modems before in my life, so my review may not take into consideration about the more advanced and premium features found in higher tier products. I’ve gone through quite a few routers / modem ... Read review

An awful lot of ports for not very much
Review of ZyXEL Dimension Switch ES-1552 48 x 10/100 + 2 x SFP + 2 x 10/100/1000 by dobieg

Advantages: 50 ethernet ports for less than £30
Disadvantages: still need a router for DNS/DHCP

Whilst many have gone ‘wireless’ there are still a substantial number of us who still use ‘copper’ network connections. Most businesses still use ‘hardwired’ Ethernet connectivity – and a good number of homes rely on ‘old fashioned’ wiring to connect stat ... Read review

Advantages: Excellent Build Quality; Aesthetically Pleasing; Easy To Use; Great Wireless Range
Disadvantages: No N Connection; Overheat If Enclosed

The Bottom Line: The WRT54G2 has performed admirably in every task I requested of it. It is the proper balance between cost, performance, and quality. However, due to its age, I recommend you choose a different router. Ownership/Legacy: I hav ... Read review

Review of Clas Ohlson Remote Switch Set 3 Pack by beckyharris

Advantages: effective, money saving, easy to use, good quality
Disadvantages: -

We bought ourselves this remote switch as we have a few awkward items that have plug sockets where we either can't reach them, or struggle to reach because of tables or desks being in the way. I'm not a fan of leaving things on standby so we thought to gi ... Read review
