Pros: Love this thing. It charges anything and quickly. I have stuff, phones, GoPros, GPS you name it. This is a life saver

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: really if you charge stuff a lot then you need this. No fighting over chargers, buy a few extra cables and leave them for everyone to use

Corsair Carbide Series CC-9011093-WW White/Blue SPEC-ALPHA Mid-Tower Gaming Case
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: First impressions; the box is too light. But we will go head and start with the good stuff. It’s a totally new design from Corsair. White with color accents (also comes in all black) as it stands out from everything Corsair has built in the past. Some real thought has added futures that will be helpful with a nice gaming build. Drive bay has been moved back to allow three 120mm fans in front. Top two 120mm fan mounts are off center to allow the motherboard heat sinks room to breathe. Two mounts for 2.5 SSD drives on the back motherboard tray and another two on top of the drive cage. It also has on the front panel a three stage fan controller, a nice addition. You can mount a 240mm radiator in the front if you remove the drive bay. The overall design is well thought out and attractive. As far as the front 5.25 drive bay, who needs them. I don’t see this as an issue.

Cons: Under the fancy exterior lies a basic frame that in my opinion is too light. Between the plastic and the thin gauge sheet metal it’s not as rigid as I would like to see. The case will flex with little pressure. There is not enough space above the motherboard for a 240mm radiator and fans. If you install a MC 212 heat sink you cannot get 120mm fans up top. The bottom dust filter is awkward to remove as well as the other dust filters have metal tabs that make them difficult to clean. They have also continued the plastic to the drive bay. Behind the motherboard tray is very little space for wire routing. The side panel does allow for more room to make up for the lack of space.

Other Thoughts: This case is pretty much an entry level budget gaming case. In a market with many options it’s got some tough competition. It is unique though. It does have some cool new futures and I can definitely see where someone would love this case. I would like to have seen better build quality. I will ad this, Corsair has a top notch warranty program and this has a 5 year warranty

TP-Link Archer C5400 AC5400 Wireless Tri-Band MU-MIMO Gigabit Router

5 out of 5 eggs Archer C5400 08/01/2016

This review is from: TP-Link Archer C5400 AC5400 Wireless Tri-Band MU-MIMO Gigabit Router

Pros: First Impressions for this new router is it’s beautiful, and heavy. It’s not just a plastic box. It actually has some weight to it. Then on second look it’s big. Where am I going to put this? It has mounts to hang it on a wall but after reading the quick install paperwork says it works better flat. Well it’s just going to have to sit on my desk. After placing it on my desk it kind of looks like an “in” basket. With its antenna up that is. The router is 9 in square and 5 in high. The set up was easy. It’s only a couple of steps and the instructions are simple. I hooked it up. Plugged it in and then turned my modem off and back on and internet after about 3 minutes. That’s a good sign that you only have to power you modem one time. Then I logged in with the ip and used the default password Admin and I set my SIDD name and passwords for the three bands. Everything I have connected to my old router connected to this one with no issues. This router also has guest networks so that’s a total of 6 separate wireless channels.
Testing on the TP-Link Archer went well. Keep in mind I’m still running a Motorola SB6121 Modem with only 4 Multiplexed Channels so it will limit the speeds a little. With this router it’s all about the throughputs. I compared it to my Linksys WRT 1200AC which is a great router with really good distance. My previous router was N type Netgear WNDR4300. With my house I have one room that the Netgear would not even reach at all. I used a powerline adapter. The Linksys AC router would reach it fine. But speeds were affected by the distance. See its one floor up and 5 walls and about 100ft. The Linksys would get about 15Mbps internet speed. File transfer was about 5Mbps. This was with my 140Mbps line over 5.0 Ghz. The New TP-Link Archer was getting 90 Mbps internet speeds and 8 Mbps file transfer. I also tested both 5.0 Ghz processors. I could stream 3X 1080p to the room located at the far in of the house with no problems. I walked down the street with my phone to test the distance of my 2.4 Ghz. 4 houses with no issues streaming Youtube. It was About 200Ft, 50Ft more than my Linksys AC router. One time during the process I lost internet. The blue light turned red. Not sure why. I have really reliable service and never get disconnects so that was odd. But it never happened again. If it does I’ll edit the review if I can isolate the problem.

Cons: Cons are well it’s big and awkward with its antenna sticking up. Maybe I just need to get use to it; I want to set stuff on it like a basket or holder but not really any issue. Also the support appears to be limited on the official website. I was unable to find the Printer controller Utility as linked in the firmware and no firmware update as of this date. Did and search for it on the website with no results. It has no slip rubber feet and very subtle blue lights. I know not a con.

Other Thoughts: If you have a really large house and need a good router this would be the one. Don’t skimp. It’s not something you want to deal with. Buffering, disconnects, no signal outside. Get a good router like this. You will not regret it. I am completely satisfied with this router. It’s more than I need and not having to worry about the pains of a bad router is worth every cent. TP-Link is a great company. I have dealt with them I the past with consumer grade routers and they always got right back to me with solutions.
