iRULU eXpro X1 7
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Coming in below the $60 point, I found the IRULU 7" eXpro Tablet to be pretty much what I expected - for better or worse.

Screen. Viewed head-on, the screen provides reasonable quality for its price point. As with a lot of the features, it reminds me of a three-generation old smartphone. Glare is not really an issue, but daytime does make it easier on the eyes, since it is not a full HD screen.

Charging Time. I had no issues getting a full charge in a reasonable amount of time on this device.

Cons: Viewing Angle. As other reviewers have noted, anything much different than "head-on" will invert the colors to your eyes. This doesn't seem to affect the brightness level of the screen, so you can still make things out, it's just the wrong color.

Boot Time. The speed on this tablet, once it is booted, is definitely manageable, but I feel like the bootup times are just a little on the slow side. It takes just about 1 minute to finish booting.

Documentation. Though there is a lot of information included with this tablet, it is so basic and badly written/translated that it would be easier to watch "how-to's" on the internet than to read through it.

Other Thoughts: Speed. Neither a positive or a negative, the tablet will open and navigate through apps like 3-generation old phone. I had no issue running small- to medium-sized games and apps.

I think this tablet would make a good Christmas present for a child who doesn't have a phone or tablet right now. The KitKat operating system, along with the bright pink color and size of the tablet, would make it a contender for wrapping under the tree this year.

Linksys RE4100W-4A Wireless N600 Pro Wi-Fi Dual Band Range Extender with Built-In Audio Speaker

4 out of 5 eggs Great Features, Bad Documentation 08/12/2015

This review is from: Linksys RE4100W-4A Wireless N600 Pro Wi-Fi Dual Band Range Extender with Built-In Audio Speaker

Pros: As my first range extender / wireless repeater, I was quite impressed with the basic functionality of the N600 Pro. If you have areas where you’d like to access your wifi but have limited connectivity or slow speeds, the N600 Pro is an option to extend your network. I have plenty of details to go into, but I’ll try to keep them concise.

-Solid Range Extension… Obviously, this is the core function of this device. The N600 not only extended my wireless network into areas that had no connectivity before, but also gave very fast connection speeds in those areas (see Other Thoughts for figures).

-Supports Dual Band… A great plus, it supports both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz separately and simultaneously – keeping their original channels.

-Simple Initial Setup… Once you’re in the settings, type in the IP address and the firmware makes it easy to tie the N600 to your router’s network. Select your network (or networks, if using dual band), enter the wireless key and you’re done.

-Ethernet Port… Making the N600 Pro a big wireless adapter.

-Headphone / Speaker Jack… Wireless connectivity, for the audiophiles among us.

Cons: The N600 Pro, as much as I like its functionality, is not perfect. In fact, its issues would make me think hard before purchasing.

-Bandwidth Limit… The N600 Pro does not give a boost to devices close to the router; in fact, it slows them down. My wireless devices within 50’ of the router had slower internet speeds if the range extender was also plugged in within 50’.

-No Spot Finder app… Where is the app? I searched everywhere, but it apparently doesn’t exist. I can only guess that Linksys has not released it yet.

-No Built-In Speaker… The name is misleading. There is an included jack, but not a speaker.

-Lacking Documentation… The little note in the box tells me almost nothing about how to set up the device. There isn’t even a link to the more detailed instructions online, though they do exist on the official Linksys support page.

-Somewhat Obtrusive Design… This one is personal preference. It’s a bulky device and the green light on the front is unnecessarily large and bright.

Other Thoughts: The N600 Pro is a mix of great core functionality, useful features, and, unfortunately, bad documentation errors. I was seriously disappointed with the lack of a Spot Finder App. However, since function is more important to me, and this device does great at extending my wireless network, I'll give the N600 Pro “4 Eggs.”

Here are some numbers from my testing.
2.4 GHz band, 90’ away, outside
--Without: 0.3 MB/s. With N600 Pro: 1.3 MB/s

2.4 GHz band, 30’ away, inside
--Without: 1.7 MB/s. With N600 Pro: 1.3 MB/s.
