AMD Radeon SSD Radeon R7 RADEON-R7SSD-480G 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This drive is fantastic! A solid state drive which means no moving parts which means less power consumption and less heat creation. It is actually a great size for the price as it seems SSDs are a bit pricey. It comes with a bracket and screws to install it into a 3.5" drive bay!

Though I did not utilize it the drive came with an activation code for Acronis 2013 True Image HD cloning software. I wanted to try the software but I simply ran out of time and the application in which I used this hard drive didn't exactly make hard drive cloning practical or even possible.

It is fast. It is completely silent. It is cool as a cucumber. I could see this thing lasting forever. Why wouldn't it? No movement and no heat? Hence why I've labeled this drive as fantastic.

If you are in the market for an SSD this drive is MORE than up to the task. I can see this being an amazing option for the main hard drive of a PC. I would love looking into the clear side window of a high-end gaming PC and see this lovely drive case staring back at me.

Cons: Past reviewers? Honestly, though, I cannot find any fault or problem with this drive. I usually treat my review products pretty rough hoping to bring out the worst in them (they're free after all so why be afraid of damaging them) and this drive has taken it like a champ and just kept on chugging along.

Other Thoughts: I installed this drive into a Playstation 4. Access and loading times were definitely improved and the PS4 operated MUCH more quietly. Fan noise was decreased and when checking for heat output the PS4 was much cooler than with a traditional drive.

I don't know that I would recommend spending the money to put an SSD into your PS4 at this time as it is simply not cost effective for the small performance gains that doing so gives you. Since I received this drive as a review item I figured why not toss it in to a game console? If you are absolutely adamant about upgrading to a SSD in your PS4 this drive is more than up to the task. It fits perfectly and is whisper quiet and ice cold. I am keeping this drive in my PS4 unless I am sent another SSD to review or prices drop low enough on SSDs to make getting a 1TB or larger an inexpensive option for expanding the storage size of my PS4.

TP-LINK TL-WDN3800 Dual Band Wireless N600 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4GHz 300Mbps/5GHz 300Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2

Pros: My favorite thing about this card is how sturdy it is. That may sound odd but many products I use just seem flimsy or cheap. The brackets are nice and solid and even the screws are thick and don't strip out when changing between the normal and low-profile bracket.

I always find it hard to review products like this. There are just so many and it has a single purpose; to connect your computer to a wireless signal. This card does it and seems to do it very well. I was not able to lose signal anywhere in my home. My router is in my finished attic and I was able to maintain signal even in the basement. This product was not able to connect from the garage, but to this day I have not found a router nor a network interface device that has been able to connect to my network from my garage, so it is no worse than any other product I have used so far. (My garage is on the opposite end of the house and downstairs from where my wireless router is.)

Both 2.4GHz and 5GHz work flawlessly. Again, there is not much detail required for this type of product (it either works or it doesn't). This is the first card I've ever used that is able to connect to a 5GHz signal which is exciting as I only recently got a router that uses both 2.4GHz and 5GHz simultaneously and automatically assigns connections based on a device's connection ability (priority given to 5GHz).

Cons: None. I honestly could not find any flaws with this item.

Other Thoughts: This device isn't as easy to install as a USB dongle, obviously, but if you are purchasing an item like this you already know that you are going to be cracking open that computer case and dealing with plugging something into your motherboard. I can't think of any advice other than "put the antennas on last". Yes, I learned that by experience. Give me a break...I was young.

TP-LINK TL-WA854RE 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, Wall Plug design, One-button Setup, Smart Signal Indicator
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Sleek-looking. Blue LEDs are far nicer than the previous model's green. Bright enough to be a nightlight in an upstairs hallway. Easy to set up. I used both the WPS button setup (worked with a Netgear router) and also accessing the device webpage interface. It definitely strengthens the signal. I set this up in my smaller home and then took it over to my mother's house (my brother and sister live there with her along with my sister's husband and kids) so it is a really big house with a lot of people using the internet. My brother was always getting kicked off of online games when we played together and I thought I would use him as a guinea pig to see how well his signal to his PS4 was improved. He now drops off a lot less and voice chat with him is not as garbled.

Cons: The LEDs are very bright. This can be both a pro and a con I suppose. At my mom's house in the upstairs hallway it replaced the nightlight perfectly. It blinks...but it isn't a main source of light so that isn't a problem at all.

Other Thoughts: This device was packaged very well. It is a very bright, clean, crisp white color. Functional AND aesthetically pleasing!
