Corsair MM200 CH-9000086-WW Extended Edition Gaming Mouse Mat
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Corair "Extended" Mouse Mat - Update 7 months later 09/24/2015

This review is from: Corsair MM200 CH-9000086-WW Extended Edition Gaming Mouse Mat

Pros: Big enough for any keyboard tray or desktop area, will fit your mouse, keyboard, and any other devices with room to spare.

Has good durability. 7 months after cutting it to fit my keyboard tray there is no excessive fraying.

Is easily cleaned with a wet cloth or sponge or even a regular vacuum.

Cons: Should be designed for easier custom cut sizes. Hard to get a straight edge with the rubber's non-skid pattern.

Other Thoughts: It has remained in the same space over the 7 months of use and the space where my wrist and arm hang off of the edge is still in fairly good shape with almost no fraying or sign of wear. Also the edges I have cut to fit are also still in fairly good shape without much more fraying either.
I would recommend anyone with a gaming system to use one of these for their own keyboard tray or gaming peripherals area.

OCZ Vertex 460A 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Much faster than any existing hard disk.
Stays much cooler than any hard disk, radiates less heat while in use.
Much smaller than conventional hard disks, less air blockage in desktop PCs.

Cons: Gets less than half the speed of my older 840 EVO SSD.
OCZ Vertex speeds:
Sequential Read(MB/s) 5283
Sequential Write(MB/s) 6183
Random Read (IOPS) 209873
Random Write (IOPS) 175378

2 would not work in RAID mode. Got disk errors after setup over many attempts(this may be a software problem but other HDs and SSDs setup and work fine.

Other Thoughts: Ended up combining two of these with a Windows software striped array. 480GB of decent speed SSD space for my more demanding games.

TRENDnet Wireless AC Easy-Upgrader TEW-820AP

5 out of 5 eggs TrendNet Wireless AC Easy-Upgrader 09/18/2015

This review is from: TRENDnet Wireless AC Easy-Upgrader TEW-820AP

Pros: Very easy installation. Quick software setup.
Boosted Wi-fi status speed from 55Mbps to 150Mbps.
Through 3 walls over ~70' gets 4/5 bar signal strength.
Very small, easy to hide away.

Cons: Very light. Cables attached and dangling off desk keep it from laying flat on it's own.
Cables coming from 2 different sides makes an awkward desk setup. If both protruded from same side they could both hang off the desk from the back.
Gets the same 4/5 bar signal strength 5' away it gets from 60+' away. Pro & Con.

Other Thoughts: copying 4.8GB video file over Trendnet wireless took just under 2 minutes from desktop to laptop.
works great with my SmartTV's wireless connectivity, much better than my ISP provided modem/router's wireless access.
get 2/5 bars signal strength on opposite side of our house with default ISP's wireless option. this boosted to 4/5 in same location.
my ISP uses fiberoptics so we are stuck using it's provided modem/router combination for now. adding this TrendNet Wireless AC Easy-Upgrader device boosted the wireless signal strength and speed considerably.
