Comprehensive HD-HD-18INPROORG 1.5 ft Orange 2 x HDMI Male Digital Audio/Video Cable with ProGrip
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Solid, strong cable, good for switch stacking 02/22/2016

This review is from: Comprehensive HD-HD-18INPROORG 1.5 ft Orange 2 x HDMI Male Digital Audio/Video Cable with ProGrip

Pros: - Very stiff / solid cable, HDMI terminations good
- Speed appears fine
- Usable for switch stacking with the Dell PowerConnect 55xx series switches (don't pay those Dell prices)

Cons: - a little pricey maybe?

Other Thoughts: - It's a short cable, so it's good for switch stacking, or really short HDMI runs. Cable doesn't bend too much, so you can't snake it around. There are longer versions of this cord available (at a price), but if you want to save like ~$50 over a branded cable for hdmi switch stacking, here ya go.

ASUS RT-AC5300 Wireless AC5300 Tri-Band MU-MIMO Gigabit Router, AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Solid product with great range and stability, if a little pricey 01/13/2016

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC5300 Wireless AC5300 Tri-Band MU-MIMO Gigabit Router, AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security

Pros: - So far, solid performance and drastically increased range from previous routers (AC1750), especially considering how many 802.11ac devices are now in the house.
- Nice high-contrast / simple interface for a router with this level of capability
- Works as a router / gateway / AP
- Tons of features such as full wireless controls, cloud access, DLNA, usb storage management, guest network, WPS etc

Cons: - including a Cat 5e cable? What is this, 2005? Should have included a Cat 6/6A/7 for this price.
- Link Agg / teaming only works for clients connected to it; you can't for example use it as an AP and native Link Agg to a switch / router, which would have been nice given the wireless throughput
- It's expensive at $400 even as a Prosumer product (though I got a free 2GB external HD and a $50 rebate card coming, so the deal was sweetened a bit for this purchase)

Other Thoughts: - It's pretty huge for a wireless router, so you'll need a good degree of space for placement / mounting
- I'm using this primarily as an AP currently (as opposed to a router) so some included functionality is not considered in this rating
- The feeling of immense power as you attach the antennae to complete your techno-spider drone
- At the time of purchase, MU-MIMO capable firmware is still in alpha, so it may be awhile before this unit takes full advantage
- Would have been nice to include site-to-site ipsec VPN tunneling along with more basic VPN features so this could effectively fully replace most small business routers (granted, most who buy this probably aren't going to use tunnels)
- 802.11ax is already in development (though you won't see compatible devices for some time), and while I wouldn't say you're buying an already obsolete product, there's still a tear in my eye

SteelSeries Sensei RAW 62155 Rubberized Black 8 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 5670 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Same basic design as the original Sensei, LEDs, programmable buttons and profiles via Steelseries Engine. Braided USB, rubberized coating feels good - just enough slip vs grip. Price point more attractive at ~$60. Tracking is pretty close to as solid as the original. Supported by SSE3.x. Mouse wheel silent, feels good.

Cons: None really, good value for the price point

Other Thoughts: Overall weight is lighter, but that's a personal issue - I liked the heavier weight of the original Sensei better. Click seems a little loud, but that's a minor thing. Original Sensei was dying after ~ 1.5 years in use, but part of the issue is also due to SSE 2.x's mounting annoyances with Windows (disconnects, software fails) vs SSE3.x (Original Sensei isn't supported by 3.x). Have not had these issues at all with SSE 3.x so far.
