Pros: I purchased this for a NAS build. It's price and CAS latency for price was just what I was after. It's working well andI'm astounded given how low priced it is. I'd definitely buy up more if I need a 4GB module for something small again.
Cons: I've found no issues.
Other Thoughts: It's not the fastest RAM and most people will probably not be looking at 4GB DIMM anymore but it's just so inexpensive and there are builds that simply do not require more RAM or need just a 4GB boost. Great RAM for what it is. Finding another at this price with a lower CAS latency is hard.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Linksys EA9200-4A Wireless AC3200 Tri-Band Smart Wi-Fi Router
Pros: The router is very stable. When I got into the configuration menu I’m met with a pleasing fairly fluid easy to understand interface. It has ability to put in use two separate 5 Ghz channels simultaneous such as 44 and 141. You can give them the same or separate SSIDs.
The speed of this thing and range is what has impressed me most. I utilize an iPad, Nexus 10, Nexus 5, Galaxy S4, multiple AC 2x2 NICs, an AC 3x3 NIC and various wired NAS and PCs on this. My devices compared to previous AC 1750 routers I use connect faster and easier. With the layout of my home there are cement walls that often block a routers range. This router somehow seems to penetrate this. It’s excellent.
It’s on par with most of its feature set. The NAS portion is available and the CPU in this system seems faster than my previous routers to handle USB/NAS throughput.
I like the external antenna (it offers three) which allows me to adjust slightly to get peak performance for my area.
Cons: A bit lacking for me is the PPTP server capability. I now have to configure my own additional PPTP server as this only does VPN pass-through. I use a PPTP server almost daily and having to now configure a separate one is something I’d think would be featured in a top end router such as this.
Other Thoughts: : There are times when I navigate the interface that it’s hard to quickly see the menu I want as they revert to simply icons. They do have a tool tip but it takes a couple seconds to pull up. Some slight usability is lost in my opinion for aesthetics. It’s hard to tell if/when beamforming is functioning, I’ve done throughput tests where I have all of my devices slightly active or hammering bandwidth and they are all functioning at what I feel is excellent performance.
The added devices is really what this is about. Most devices right now are 2x2 cards. It’s hard, I know I had to try, to find a 3x3 AC NIC right now. This is a router you get that is great and lasts you into devices catching up.
I feel like someone such as myself or others looking for a router in this range will want some additional advanced settings. While working on stability with DD-WRT/Open-WRT in general isn't something they can do as that's not their OS, perhaps granted an advanced mode for advanced users. I feel like I have a great home based good looking GUI that is easy enough for many to configure, but I'm missing fine tuning that I have to look at open source router OS's to gain.
This review is from: Corsair Gaming K95 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - White LED - Cherry MX Red Switches
Pros: First is that it’s a mechanical keyboard. Having used many non-mechanical Logitech and Microsoft keyboards over the last few decades going mechanical is huge. You can type faster and with higher accuracy which is great.
Once you plug it in it’ll function instantly without driver installs. All keys independently have their own backlit LED and you get presets. It also has a dedicated button to light power to make it brighter, softer, or turn it off. That’s great for if you have it in a bedroom and want to get some shuteye.
The volume scroller has a nice feel as well. The cable feels a lot like the Corsair modular PSU casing which is a good thing. It’s durable and looks better than a regular cable. It's also quite long. I sometimes jack this into a PC using a TV as a monitor and it gives enough length to sit at a distance.
It feels extremely solid to use. It has a heavy construction that seems like it’ll last years. It’s actually pretty sensitive.
I just started playing FFXIV again after some patching and gave this a great multi week test through its paces. It's really nice. Fast and responsive. The macro buttons are easy to setup and register in the game. This really changed it up from a standard keyboard. I remapped almost all of the keys to make better use of the G keys on the left side. I tried going back to my old keyboard and it felt like rusty buckets. There is no chance I can go back to a non mechanical keyboard now.
Cons: The keys even after weeks of use sometimes are almost too responsive. I often accidentally hit CTRL and random keys on which my hands set like J/F. Just barely putting weight on them will fire them off nonstop. I'll notice sometimes while I'm reading I ended up having a page of F's being typed.
It doesn't feature USB pass through. It takes up two slots and no pass through available to help alleviate that.
Other Thoughts: Lots of people have been having LED issues. I don't have many months of testing to see how mine fares but the LEDs are all lighting well. They are really bright so I often keep it in the lowest dim setting to give just enough if I have to glance down for something.
The way the keys are raised can be slightly uncomfortable if you use this in a lap. I know that most will have it on a desk and on a desk with the wrist pad it works well. I use it this way for most uses. However if I drag it to a living room to sit on a couch you end up angling your wrists in a way that makes it tiring to use.
Overall this is a very sturdy keyboard that types well. I'm pleasantly surprised at the build sturdiness of this keyboard.
