Each year we have more and more computers, TV?s, Hi Fi equipment, table lamps, and other equipment around the home and office. All this is great, but it pushes our energy costs up and up. The more of these types of products we have the more we have to remember to turn them all off.
The electricity used whilst in standby mode can add up to significant amounts across weeks, months, and years. Often we just leave our items switched on or in standby mode, this is costing us a lot of money and needlessly using energy. In addition to this, leaving our equipment turned on shortens the life of the product, and also increases the fire risks etc.
Not a day goes by without there being a news article or advert about energy saving and how everyone should try and reduce their energy consumption. So how can everyone help to save energy? well at pcfood we have a great range of products that can help you do this with a range of products by Wattsclever.

New networking product range from Tenda now added to site, we have some great products at great prices from Tenda and below is a review from productreviews.net on the wireless usb adaptor.
...Today I have been trying out the Tenda W541U V2.0, this is a USB wireless adapter which connects to WiFi b and g networks (IEEE 802.11bg and IEEE 802.11g.).
When you open up the product's packaging you may be quite shocked to see how little there is inside, in fact you get a CD-ROM and the USB adapter, if you want to read the product's manual it can be found on the disc.
The adapter itself has a very solid plastic housing and there is an LED which blinks when there is activity, also on the underside of the dongle there are details such as its model number and MAC address.
When I plugged it into my Windows 7-based computer it automatically installed itself and was ready to go in roughly 2 minutes, on my XP-based computer installation required the CD-ROM and took roughly 5 minutes.
The standard installation installs the Tenda wireless utility, this is useful on older computers which run Windows 2000, however I prefer to allow Windows to manage my connections, the Tenda software can be useful if you want to see full details regarding connections speeds or perhaps set it up as an access point.
In terms of signal strength and connection speed there are no real surprises, using the USB adapter I got roughly the same connections speed as my DLink PCI WiFi card, I used the USB adapter for 8 hours with no connection loss which proves the hardware and drivers are both stable.
There is not much else you can say about this USB adapter, it is cheap, easy to install, well-made and has pretty strong signal W541U V2.0 here.
