Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Great inexpensive SSD - perfect for an OS drive 07/05/2016

This review is from: Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5" 240GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SP240GBSS3S55S25FR

Pros: Cheap
More than fast enough to be a good Operating System drive
Had zero problems plugging it in, formatting, and using immediately

Cons: At this price, none

Other Thoughts: I think 240GB is a sweet spot for either an operating system drive or as a drive to put a few games or programs on which will benefit from an SSD. I used this as an OS drive on a new office build for my wife; it works great! Definitely recommended.

LINKSYS RE7000 Max-Stream AC1900+ Mu-Mimo W-Fi Range Extender
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Wifi Repeater 06/06/2016

This review is from: LINKSYS RE7000 Max-Stream AC1900+ Mu-Mimo W-Fi Range Extender

Pros: Does not drop signal on any of my devices connected to it, even in more distant rooms of my house
I tried a "real world" stress test where I had a game downloading on my desktop PC, Netflix streaming to two phones, and a third video streaming to my laptop. No problems at all!
Has better signal strength than my previous repeater, which struggled to repeat a 5 GHz signal very well - this device should have sufficient signal strength for everything except incredibly large 3 story homes.
I had no trouble with setup and finding good placement - it's as close as it gets to plug n play in the world of wireless repeaters.

Cons: If you don't own a comparably high end router, this is overkill for a repeater, both in terms of its features and price.

Other Thoughts: If you have a high end modern router and want a nice little wifi boost in your home, this is a perfect device! Just please don't buy this with your cheapo $30 router (or the router your ISP provides) thinking it will magically make your home internet great...

SteelSeries Rival 100 Optical Gaming Mouse - Sakura Purple
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Very good minimal-frills mouse for casual use or gaming 05/22/2016

This review is from: SteelSeries Rival 100 Optical Gaming Mouse - Sakura Purple

Pros: The balance of weight and size on this mouse fit my large hands well - I don't have to "claw" grip the mouse if I don't want to.

For casual use, the mouse works just fine as plug-n-play, and the mouse works great for gaming with the Steelseries Engine software allowing you to customize settings like DPI and button mapping

The buttons and the scroll wheel are very responsive and the switches are satisfying to use

Cons: I didn't like the lighting as much as I expected to, I thought it looked a bit "cheap"... like a white LED shining through cheap purple plastic. No big deal though, you can change the illumination settings if you don't like it.

Other Thoughts: If you want a fairly basic, inexpensive gaming mouse, this is a good purchase. I've been gaming with it in Path of Exile, Doom, and Battlefield 4 and have had no complaints so far compared to my much more expensive Logitech G700.
