This review is from: Linksys EA9200-4A Wireless AC3200 Tri-Band Smart Wi-Fi Router
Pros: Speed @ 2.4Ghz N
Speed @ 5.0GHz N
Speed @ 5.0GHz AC
Range @ 2.4GHz
Smooth performance, no ping increase from my wired 1000Mb! (16ms)
Cons: Firmware is a little plain for a high end router.
Only issue I had was when I got too close with a laptop, had to move a few feet away to get data moving. Can't really complain about that.
Other Thoughts: Wow, this thing is fast. I get a faster, more consistent Speedtest result using wireless! Yes, that does sound crazy. Yes it's true.
You can feel that there are no bottlenecks or weak links anywhere in this router. I can't say enough about the speed.
The range on 2.4GHz is excellent, my phone now stays connected when I go into a basement laundry room one building over.
I would take off one star for lack of configuration but it's a linksys after all. Wouldn't choose this for a centerpiece of my network but it makes for one heck of an access point.
For the networking inclined: It lets you set it up manually instead of forcing one of those out of box "wizards".
This review is from: Corsair SABRE USB Wired RGB Laser Gaming Mouse
Profiles not stored on mouse
Other Thoughts: After using the mouse for about a month I want to start by saying the tracking was nothing short of perfect.
I like the size. (Big hands)
However the software is atrocious.
A fatal flaw is the way profiles are handled. The software MUST be running for the mouse to not return to an out of box state. Speaking of which, the stock color profile of red white and green is fugly.
About 1 out of 5 times I reboot, the software will fail in a hand off between the stock profile and my custom one. The mouse will end up in a dark but functional state. You have to quit and restart the corsair software and the mouse finally loads up the profile correctly.
I was about to give up on figuring out how to use the lighting customization. After about a week I figured it out. Way too hard, not obvious at all. The options are fantastic but the experience in the software it truly trying of my patience.
For a mouse that separates itself from the pack by offering lighting customization, thats exactly where it needs improvement.
-1 Egg for ambiguous customization interface
-1 Egg for profiles not loading correctly on startup
Used on Windows 8.1 64bit
Pros: Decent specs on paper.
Cons: On an AMD based motherboard I tried, the drive seemed to have weak read performance. This is strange because the write performance was consistent. I was only able to get about ~200MB/s read, in sequential testing. The write speeds stayed around 320 MB/s. (limited by controller)
It got faster read speeds on an SATA 3G controller.
Since I use SSDs in PCs that may not have a top of the line SATA controller, this is an issue for me.
Other Thoughts: Drive performed consistently under most chipsets.READ FULL REVIEW
