Pros: Nice packaging made from materials that are nice to touch.
Inside the packaging you get:
- TP link wireless n300 extender
- quick start guide
- installation disk
- general license notice.
Cons: None really. it's an inexpensive product and you get what you pay for. A basic wifi extender that does it's job but nothing miraculous.
Other Thoughts: Speeds could be better but i put this near my west wall closest to my drive way to get better wifi signals in my drive way. It has helped a lot by allowing me to listen to pandora when i work on my car.
My internet service is 100mb download and 5mb upload but i typically get around 120mb down and 7mb up, and in the room with the router i get those speeds with around 30 or so ping. Using this adapter i managed to get a whopping 22mb down and 3mb up with 75 ping using speed test on my phone.
Does it work? yes. Is it the best product out there? No. Is it practical for the everyday consumer who just needs wifi a little farther away? yes. Do i reccomend gaming or doing anything intensive with it? No.
You get what you pay for and honestly for just letting me play music on pandora out in my driveway i would buy this inexpensive well designed product 10 out of 10 times.
This review is from: CORSAIR 256GB USB Flash Drive Model CMFSL3X2-256GB
Pros: Fast usb drives that gets faster with higher capacities, much like ssds do.
These drives are small and compact with a not too bright but just right blue LED indicator light.
Corsair makes some aesthetically pleasing and well built products and this one is no different.
Nice rubber finish on the sides to help with sliding the drive, overall corsair has completely changed my mind on flash drives. Having the speed these have i'll never go back to other flash drives.
Cons: The only gripe i have with this drive is that the usb connector is exposed and has nothing protecting it, but i suppose you could always just blow out any particles of pocket lint that manage to get in there
Other Thoughts: For me, this drive was already exciting because of it's rated 200mb/s read and 90mb/s write but my results got even better than that.
We'll start off with it's results with crystal disk mark, this flash drive benched
That's already faster than what it's specified so my real world tests included copying over a large game(gta5) which is 61gb and a folder that is 1gb of mixed pictures/videos
Read: 195mb/s with burst speeds high as 245mb/s
write: 120mb/s with burst speeds high as 150mb/s
While the reads are pretty much in margin of error, that's a 33% faster speed than what it's rated for. Overall, i am very happy with the performance of this drive but you should also not forget, this drive is 256gb!! i'll be really surprised if i ever manage to fill this drive.
This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager 16GB Slider X2 USB Flash Drive Model CMFSL3X2-16GB
Pros: Corsair was once known mostly for their memory, and is now in practically everything. They bring quality(mostly) to everything they make and this drive is no different
- Premium quality feel to it
- Slide design with an extra satisfying clicky feel to it
- usb 3.0 is fast
- performance is spot on to what corsair claims
Cons: No cap to the usb connector
It may be too wide for side by side usb ports to make use of the adjacent ones
Other Thoughts: I have various other flash drives lying around my house from sandisk to other corsair drives to no name ones and i think it's time i update all my flash drives to corsair.
Performance is SPOT ON with
reads: 204 mb/s
writes: 41 mb/s
with crystal disk mark and real world testing shows no difference in results, from copying movies on and off to tons of pictures the drive just performs. It's twice as fast as any other drive i have lying around and you really can't come to appreciate the speeds until you have seen them.
