Microsoft 52A-00004 Xbox 360 Controller for Windows
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Good quality 08/20/2015

This review is from: Microsoft 52A-00004 Xbox 360 Controller for Windows

Pros: There's not much to say about it. It's a wired xbox 360 controller. It works flawlessly without any additional configuration on Windows 7, 8, and 10. It makes gaming on a PC with traditionally console games (like Skyrim and Saint Row) comfortable and enjoyable. The build quality is good. Microsoft knows how their gamers like to abuse devices. I bought the 3 year accidental protection anyway, but I've had one for a few years now that still works great despite travelling all over the world map with me. I bought this one to keep on my desktop at home.

Cons: I really can't think of any. If you like the Xbox style controller, then this is the one you want.

RAZER Naga USB MMO Gaming Mouse - Right-Handed Edition

5 out of 5 eggs Still like the Nagas 08/20/2015

This review is from: RAZER Naga USB MMO Gaming Mouse - Right-Handed Edition

Pros: You know, I was really on the fence about this mouse because of past issues with other nagas (double clicking, etc), but I'm glad I bought one again. It's not as bulky as the G600 and the redesign, while a little larger than older nagas, isn't as bad as I thought it would be. It still fits an average female hand very comfortably. It glides smoothly and after fine tuning it for all of three seconds in the very intuitive software, I was right back in the game again.

Cons: After looking at the Q&A the only con is probably that I already know I'm on borrowed time with this mouse. It's *going* to develop the clicking issue at some point. I did buy the 3 year Accidental protection on it so I'm not worried, but I do wish Razer would get on the ball with fixing this particular issue. Buying a new mouse once a year or so is not really something most gamers want to have to think about. When we upgrade it should be because there is a better product out there, not because our current product couldn't handle the abuse it was supposed to be designed for.

Other Thoughts: The mouse is bigger, but it's not monstrous like I thought it might be. Then again, I could be used to the G600 which is HUGE and made for bear paws. Coming back to the naga feels like coming home. If you are deciding between the G600 and the Naga, I think I'm still going to recommend the Naga. Just protect yourself and get Newegg's no hassle warranty.

Linksys WRT1200AC Wireless AC1200 Dual-Band and Wi-Fi Wireless Router with Gigabit and USB 3.0 Ports and eSATA
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: It's a beautiful design and looked really nice on my desk.

Cons: Really, I should have expected this in today's throwaway world. I thought I was spending a little more to get quality, but that's not the case. Out of the box I had issues with the device. I configured my wireless, but the SSID broadcast was on by default and I didn't notice right away (The UI is so laggy it's surprising I got through it at all). When I did notice, I changed it to not broadcast, and apparently after you do that you MUST reboot the router before the settings will actually take effect and let devices connect again. Fine, I'm used to reboots. So I reboot it and get ready to sit down and play some FFXIV.

Now, I have the router set up on my desk, not more than 15 feet from my bed with no obstructions at all. I loaded up the game on my laptop, and not even 3 minutes into checking my retainers I'm getting R0. Tabbed out, and sure enough, the signal dropped. Figured it was a fluke, so I tried again. Same thing. At this point I'm frustrated with the device so I take it out and put my old WRT54GL with Tomato back online. Played flawlessly the rest of the night.

I bought this because I wanted a gigabit capable router and because I have used Linksys in the past (my WRT54GL has been in operation for a decade now) and I trusted the brand. I guess it's just not the company it used to be. I had trouble with a WRT1900AC I installed in a friend's house, and now the same troubles with this one. I don't know if it's just bad hardware or terrible firmware (I tend to think it's the latter), but I don't have the time nor inclination to do any further troubleshooting with this device. When it's truly capable of running open source firmware I'll have another look. Until then, I guess I'm going to be using my old tried and true WRT54GL.

Just as some added information about my background, I'm CompTIA certified up to Sec+ and Cisco certified up to CCNASec, so I know a fair bit about networking. I've installed thousands of Sonicwall, Cisco, and consumer devices in the last 15 years or so. This device just doesn't work. I'll be returning it. I'm frankly surprised at all the positive reviews for this router. Folks just must not be using it for something that needs a persistent connection and don't notice the drops. I find it hard to believe I got the one and only dud (especially given my experience with the 1900AC).

Other Thoughts: Please don't respond to this review with the canned "Please update the firmware on the device". As you know, the minute you power it on and connect it to an internet source it downloads the latest firmware on its own anyway. No device should require a firmware update to not drop wireless connections 15 feet away. If that's the case, that is a horrible business practice and you shouldn't be selling a device that you know doesn't work with the factory firmware. Recall them, reflash them, test them and THEN start selling them again. There's no room for lazy companies in a competitive market.
