Orico 3350mah Travel Power Bank + Flashlight Review And Giveaway!

Hello everyone!  I wanted to share with you another great product that I just got in from Orico. It is the 3350mah Power Bank!  It is very small, great for traveling or everyday use, and comes with a built-in flashlight!  This can be purchased from Amazon for around $17.  Today I am going to tell you a little bit about this product, my experience using it, and give you a chance to win one for free!  So let’s get started!

Now this is a great device to have with you every single day!  First off, it has a metal body that is extremely durable!  It is about the same size around as a compact lipstick or prescription bottle, and slightly longer.  This is very convenient because it can be put in your pocket, purse, glove box, desk, or anywhere!  Bigger power banks are great for certain situations, but you do not always want to carry around another device the size of a tablet or smart phone.  This is where this item really shines!  Literally, it shines with a flashlight by double pressing a button on the power bank!  And if you touch the flashlight button an additional time, it will flash in S.O.S. mode which can be helpful to attract help in emergency situations!

I carry this with me at all times in my purse!  It is one of my favorite gadgets, mostly because of the compact size and the extra functionality of the flashlight.  The flashlight is an amazing option, which has already helped me at least a dozen times!  Especially when trying to use my keys in dark places, or trying to find something that I dropped!  The power bank charges my devices slightly faster than stock chargers, and will charge an average smart phone 1.5-2 times depending on the size of the phone battery.  I did not have any issues with it overheating either.  It charges fast as well, which makes it easy to use on a daily basis.

I hope that this review helped you to decide that this is the right product for you!  If you are interested in a high-capacity power bank, please read about the 10,000mah and 10,400mah power banks that I have recently reviewed.  For daily use, I really enjoy carrying this one around with me!  If you would like a chance to win one for free, please enter the giveaway through the link below!  Thank you for reading and good luck!

Orico Wireless Router/Wi-Fi Extender Review And Giveaway!

Hello everyone!  I wanted to share with you another great product that I just got in from Orico.  It is the WRE-30 802.11n 300Mbps Wireless Router!  This is a great little device with several different advantages and functions!  It can be purchased from Amazon or Newegg for around $25.  Today I am going to tell you a little bit about this product, my experience using it, and give you a chance to win one for free!  So let’s get started!

This device is awesome because it has several different functions, and we all love devices that serve multiple purposes!  This can be used as a wireless access point when used in combination with a wired LAN (useful if you have basic wired internet).  This can also be used to extend the range of your current wireless router (useful in large-area places or duplexes).  Or it can be used as a wireless router when used in combination with an ADSL modem (useful in houses or apartments).  If that was not enough, it can also be used as a charger for your devices!  I am including photos below from the User’s Manual to provide more detailed information about these functions along with photos.  If you were to take a deck of playing cards and cut it in half, that would be about the size of this device, so it will be easy to keep out of view or take with you on the go!

For me, I use this to extend my current Wi-Fi signal range at home.  This helps get the connection to the other side of the house from where my router is located.  I definitely notice a huge improvement!  I took a trip last week and took this with me to the hotel, and I was impressed by how it got me a clean signal in my room!  Depending on your settings for this device, you may notice that the speed of your overall connection may decrease, but this is normal because it is providing extra functionality that you would not have with your normal setup.  It does require a few minutes to configure this device, but there is very detailed instructions with pictures on how to do this.

I hope that this review helped you to decide that this is the right product for you!  This is one of those things that you may not think you need, but you will constantly find yourself in situations where this could save you a lot of time and frustration!  If you would like a chance to win one for free, please enter the giveaway through the link below!  Thank you for reading and good luck!

Qicent 6 Port USB Charging Station Review And Giveaway!

Hello everyone!  I wanted to share with you another great product that I just got in from Qicent.  It is the DC-6U 6-Port USB Charging Station!  This can be purchased from Amazon or Newegg for around $20.  Today I am going to tell you a little bit about this product, my experience using it, and give you a chance to win one for free!  So let’s get started!

Now this is a great device to have in any home or office!  As the years go on, we find ourselves needing more and more chargers!  This would be great for a computer area, night stand, or table.  It is smaller in length and width than a normal smart phone, but about twice as thick.  It also has a sleek black look which I like very much.  This has a small blue LED that turns on when plugged in, which is helpful in low-light conditions.  Each port charges at a max of 5 volts/2.4 amps which is fast!

I use this on my end table, because that is where all the phones, tablets, and power banks charge.  This only uses 1 outlet in the wall, so I do not have to plug in each charger into the wall.  It makes the area look more organized, and is probably much safer as well!  I also like the size because I do not always want a big power strip in every room, so this is great for any area.  I did not have any issues with it overheating either.  And one of the most important things is that it charges devices quickly!

I hope that this review helped you to decide that this is the right product for you!  If you would like a chance to win one for free, please enter the giveaway through the link below!  Thank you for reading and good luck!

Qicent Super Speed PCI Express Upgrade Cards Review And Giveaway!

Hi everyone!  I wanted to share with you a couple more great products that I just got in from Qicent.  One is the Series PU31 USB3.1×2 Super speed PCI Express Card, and it can be purchased from Amazon or Newegg for around $25.  The other is the Series PU31 USB3.1 And Type-C Super speed PCI Express Card, and it can also be purchased from Amazon or Newegg for around $25.  These are 2 different options for upgrading your desktop PC’s performance and compatibility.  Today I am going to tell you a little bit more about these products, my experiences with them, and give you a chance to win them for free!  So let’s get started!

So these upgrade cards are going to be helpful in a several situations.  If you purchase a newer mobile device, tablet, or computer hardware, then you may not be able to connect it to your PC.  Or you may be able to connect it, but you will be unable to take advantage of the quicker charging or higher transfer speed.  This is because the ports on your PC are designed to work with current devices, but as new technology emerges, your PC quickly becomes outdated in this area as well as other areas.  Most people either replace their PC every couple years, or they take it to a computer repair shop to be upgraded.  Many computer upgrades are easy and cheap to do yourself with a little research.  This is definitely one of them!

Most computers are built similar to a car.  There is a frame or scaffolding that everything is connected to, or built around.  Replacing parts require disconnecting pieces and reconnecting them.  I think a computer is much easier to work on because I can replace or upgrade most parts using only a phillips screwdriver!  You can save yourself a lot of time, money, frustration, and more if you take a little time to learn some of these skills in your free time.  Search engines, tutorial videos, etc. are very helpful resources these days.

Now the items I received from Qicent were easy to install.  The side panel on most computers slides right off to reveal the hardware.  All you have to do is find the place where it looks like the card will plug into, and there should be a spot for one of these cards there.  For me, it was towards the middle of the back of my PC.  I simply plugged the card into the motherboard as I made sure it was flush with the back of the PC, and connected it to power.  Then one screw held it in place, and I replaced the side panel.  The driver download was quick and easy, and I was enjoying much faster charging and data transfer!  In my experience USB3.0 is on average 10X faster than USB2.0, and USB3.1 is on average 2X faster than USB3.0, so we are talking super speed!  Now my 7 year old PC is performing like new in this area!

Anytime you are working with electronics, please follow all safety precautions.  Read your manual, watch video tutorials, research using search engine, learn about safety precautions specific to the current repair, etc.  Only proceed when you are sure that you have a good idea of what you are doing!  I hope that this review helped you to determine that this is the right product for you!  If you want a chance to win one for free, please enter the giveaway through the link provided below!  Thank you so much for reading!

Orico Universal Surge Protector With USB Super Chargers Review And Giveaway!

Hi everyone!  Today I want to share with you another great product I just got in from Orico.  It’s the Universal Power Surge Protector With 4 USB Super Charger Ports, and it can be purchased from Amazon for around $20.  This item has 4 outlets and 4 USB super charging ports!  Each USB port is 2.4Amps max.  In the case of a power surge, which happens often during power outages, it will cut off the electrical connection to the devices plugged in to it therefore protecting them from harm.  I am going to share the details of my experience using this product, and then give you a chance to win a free one!

So let’s get started!  The unit seems to be built very well.  It feels solid, and when you shake it there is no loose noises coming from inside like other brands I have used before.  This item does have a nice gap between outlets, so if you are planning on using all box-style plugs, then you will be able to do that easily.  It does charge my smart phone and tablet faster than the stock chargers, which is nice!  Additionally, I noticed that when I had everything plugged in that there was no high-pitched feedback sound which I have experienced with another brand before.

I have not experienced a power outage yet since I have owned this product, but based on the specifications and how well this unit is made, I have no doubt that it will do it’s job when the power goes out next time.  If you do not already have a surge protector for every computer and television area in your house, then I definitely recommend that you protect those areas, and for the low price you can’t go wrong with this one!  I hope that this review helped you to determine that this is the right product for you!  If you would like a chance to win one for free, then feel free to enter the giveaway through the link provided below!  Thank you so much for reading!

Orico USB3.0 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter Review And Giveaway!

Hi everyone!  Today I want to share with you another great new product I just got in from Orico!  It’s the USB3.0 to RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter, and this thing is handy if you want to use a fast ethernet connection on your desktop or laptop.  It can be purchased for around $20 on Amazon or Newegg.  Today I am going to tell you a little bit about this product, my experience with it, and also give you a chance to win one for free!  So let’s get started!

This device is perfect for several situations.  This will be useful if you have a newer laptop with no ethernet port, then you can simply plug in this adapter to your USB port and you will then have an ethernet port.  Also if you have an older computer that has a broken ethernet port and it is not worth the money to repair, then this is an inexpensive solution.  And if you have a slightly outdated computer and fast internet, you can certainly upgrade the connection speed using this in combination with a USB3.0 port.  There are other situations in which this may be the right device for you as well, but these are popular ones.

First off this product arrived quickly, and the packaging was nice.  The device was well protected during shipping, and was easy to use.  I did not have to download a driver for this to work in my case, but depending on the computer you are using you may have to.  A driver is a file that can be downloaded easily and quickly from your computer in about 1 minute or less, and in it there is a tiny software program that gives the computer directions on how to use the hardware or external device the right way so that they can communicate properly.

Oricogigabit3

In my situation I simply unboxed the device, plugged it up to my USB port in my laptop, and connected my ethernet cord to get it working.  I definitely noticed a speed increase using this in combination with the USB3.0 port over the standard ethernet port.  In my case it was still not performing at full speed because my internet provider cannot support that!  But if they could, I have no doubt from using other Orico products, that it would perform as well or better than similar devices.

If you only have a regular USB port, then I will show you how to upgrade it for around $25 in one of my future posts coming later today!  The USB3.0 ports are usually blue on the inside, but if you have a regular USB port then this device will still work for you, but will not have the speed of a USB3.0 device.  USB3.0 devices perform about 10X faster than regular USB devices on average.  I hope that this review helped you to determine that this is the right product for you!  If you would like a chance to win one for free, please enter the giveaway through the link provided below!  Thank you so much for reading!

Orico USB3.0 Hard Drive Dock Review And Giveaway!

Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you another great product that I just got in from Orico. It’s the 6619 Series USB 3.0 SATA Hard Drive Dock! It can be purchased from Amazon or Newegg for around $20. Orico is a great company, that I personally like a lot. They provide a competitive product that works like it should, at a low price, and have great customer service. I am going to tell you about this product, my experiences with it, and give you a chance to win one for free! So let’s get started!

This device is used to dock an internal hard drive, so that it can be accessed from any computer like an external hard drive. If you have a computer that crashed, then you can use this to save your photos, videos, files, etc. If you pay a computer repair shop to retrieve your old data from a crashed computer, this is similar to what they use. And they charge you way too much for doing it! So next time, consider saving yourself a ton of money and purchase this unit.

This is also great to use in non-emergency situations, like for extra storage space. Instead of buying a small capacity USB drive or expensive external hard drive, you can use your old computer’s hard drive or buy a cheap one. The advantages to this are saving money and faster data transfer speed. You can even back up everything on your current computer and store it on another drive, just in case. If you want to dock 2 hard drives at the same time, then consider purchasing the other model they make, because it has 2 docks. So make use of that old hard drive today!

I received this item quickly, and it was well protected in the packaging. It has a nice durable feel to it, and a weighted base. That is nice because it keeps it from tipping over from the weight of the hard drive. It will dock either a 2.5 or 3.5 inch hard drive. The 3.5 inch hard drives are common in desktop computers and the 2.5 inch ones are common in laptops. There is an LED light that lights up when the unit is powered on. It comes with all the cords you need, and a manual. There is no download or anything needed, you just unbox it, plug up to your computer, and it is ready to go!

Getting to your internal hard drive should be very easy. My PC required the removal of 6 screws total, and my laptop only 5. It only took me about 3 minutes in total each time. Look at your computer’s manual to find the location if you are unsure. You can easily find manuals in PDF form online by searching for your computer’s model number as well. And YouTube is a great resource to find a visual reference.

There are a few things worth mentioning at the end here that go for any brand. I recommend using a computer that has Windows 7 at minimum. Windows XP can give you trouble “seeing” the device. If you are a Linux user, and trying to access Linux files from a Windows computer, then you may have a bit of trouble at first. If you manually created your partitions at Linux install time, then you may have to use the command line to carry out functions. If you do not have USB3.0 then you can still use the product, but you will not have as fast as transfer as if you did. Whoever you are and whatever you do though, avoid unplugging this device or turning it off when you are transferring data or you may lose it all! If you would like to purchase one now, then you can click HERE to go to Amazon, or click HERE to go to Newegg. Thank you so much for reading and make sure you enter the giveaway through the link below for your chance to win one for free!
