TP-LINK TL-WA854RE 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, Wall Plug design, One-button Setup, Smart Signal Indicator
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I've been using this extender for a week now, and I am very pleased with its performance. My wireless router is in the basement of my house, and I often try to download games to my Vita and 3DS from my bedroom on the second floor. The signal was consistently too weak to do so - until I plugged this little guy into an outlet outside my bedroom.

I'm now getting a super-strong signal in my bedroom, which makes me very happy. Games are now downloading to my handhelds quickly, and with ease. Netflix streaming to my Nexus 7 is also a bit stronger than before, when I connected directly to the wireless router.

It couldn't have been easier to setup. I own a TP-LINK wireless router, so I simply plugged the extended into an outlet near my router in the basement. I pressed the WPS button on the wireless router, and then pressed the main button on the extender. 30 seconds later, the two units were linked and communicating. Awesome! Can't beat the no-driver, no-CD setup approach.

For the price, I can't recommend this unit enough.

Cons: None.

SteelSeries Siberia RAW Circumaural Prism Headset
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Very impressed 01/16/2015

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia RAW Circumaural Prism Headset

Pros: I am really impressed with these headphones, especially at the current ~$50 sale price. Most importantly, the sound quality is excellent!

I have my headset currently connected to the top USB port on my Windows 7 PC. Installation was very simple - plug-n-play! No drivers necessary for the headphones or built-in microphone.

Listening to "Random Access Memories" by Daft Punk and the "Skyfall" score by Thomas Newman - the sound quality is excellent. No distortion at all in the full frequency range, and these handle loud volumes very nicely as well. I do not hear any background noise or hissing when listening to music. I will definitely be using these headphones as my primary listening device on my PC.

Some folks here have complained about the short cord length. It certainly seems long enough to me if your computer or gaming console is within a few feet. The cord is also long enough to reach behind my PC to connect to rear USB ports.

The white color is stylish and clean. I also like the classy glowing lights on the outside of the earpieces. The lights are bright, but not so bright as to light up the entire room you are in (like many case fan lights on PCs).

The headphones are very comfortable to wear during long listening and gaming sessions. The fabric-covered foam ear pieces and headband piece are soft but firm.

Onto the microphone, which several reviewers have complained about. While it isn't the highest quality mic, it certainly does the job and has decent sound quality for game chat, Skype calls, etc. I wouldn't use this mic to record a podcast, but it is completely acceptable for everyday use on a computer. I am very happy with the quality, and I am glad it was included. I also love how the mic is integrated into the left earpiece, instead of sticking out in front of my face like most headsets.

Cons: It would have been nice, maybe for future models, if the cord was detachable, and a standard 1/8" mini-stereo jack was included so I could use these with my Nexus 7 for listening to music and movies on the go.

TP-LINK TL-WN725N  Nano Wireless N150 Adapter, 150Mbps, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, WEP, WPA/WPA2
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: My wife has a cheap little Acer laptop. The internal wireless card started flaking out in Windows 7 to the point where should could no longer connect to the web. We bought another (cheaper) manufacturer's USB 2.0 wireless adapter, and for whatever reason, it did not play nice with her laptop.

Once again, connections to our wireless network were flaky - she would lose her access to the web frequently. Before giving up and wiping out the PC completely and re-installing Windows 7, I gave the TP-LINK unit a try. Glad I did!

Access to our wireless router is solid, once again. No more signal drops or interference. Speedtest reports near-full saturation both up and down on my Comcast 30mbps/5mbps plan.

Couldn't be happier with this little unit! Installation was very simple with the included driver CD. Highly recommended.

Cons: None.
