DELL Alienware X51 AX51R2-9309BK Desktop PC Intel Core i7 4790 (3.6GHz) 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Ultra compact system that's slightly bigger than an Xbox. Design is sleek, yet compact and minimal. Though it's a little system it's incredibly easy to upgrade and work with.

Performance is great. Any game I threw at it I was able to play with details maxed at 1920x1080. Not a single performance hit was noticeable. The Radeon R9 270 isn't the fastest GPU on the planet but it's more-than-capable for this system.

Cons: The system generates a decent of noise when the CPU is under load. It's not terrible, but is definitely noticeable. If you're a DIY sort you can reduce the impact by replacing the thermal paste on the CPU with a high end grease.

Power is a huge constraint on the system. While it's upgradable the cap on the PSU will greatly limit what you can upgrade to in the future.

SATA connections are limited to SATA 3.

Other Thoughts: I'm generally a DIY guy -- computer tech by day, gamer by night. I decided on this system because I needed something compact, small, yet powerful. Every other case out there in this form factor is disappointing.

This would be an easy five stars if not for the SATA connections. Being limited to SATA 3 is a disappointment (not a deal breaker though). It's definitely a fast machine, and not one you'll likely be disappointed with.

You can easily add in a second HDD (2.5" only) if you want an SSD. All you need is a small 6" SATA cable and a Y-splitter for the molex power adapter on the motherboard. Fairly minimal effort.

BUFFALO WZR-1750DHPD AirStation AC 1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router, DD-WRT Open Source Pre-Installed
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: We used this router during a large convention, in a crowded hotel with wireless signals and people every which way. Range was excellent, going through multiple ballrooms from our central hub. Speed and performance remained consistent across the board, never had much issue. We had a 100Mbit connection to it and we were able to stream multiple HD feeds at the same time without issue.

Setting up the router is easy, and the instructions were clear-cut. The package was also minimal on waste (bonus).

Cons: The admin interface left a lot to be lacking. While it's full of features, we found it incredibly unresponsive during setup. Make multiple changes and the router would not save them consistently. We had to save after each and every change, which was proceeded by a 30-40 seconds pause.

Once configured the router had no problems. Just took a bit of time to get everything where we wanted it.

Other Thoughts: Comes with wall mounting hardware. HURRAY!

All the admin/login info for the router's control panel comes in a convenient little slide tab on the router itself. The tab has the default password written on it to help prevent intrusion out of the box, and is removable at that. More companies should do this.

Corsair CH-9000067-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I decided to upgrade my keyboard. I needed one with a smaller profile, but still provided better functionality and usage (my last keyboard did not have Print Screen key).

Typing on this beast feels majestic. It's got the snap of pressure when pressing down on a key. Having used soft keys for years, I never realized how much I actually missed a mechanical keyboard. And while it may entirely be a placebo effect, I have to say gaming wit the K70 feels much more responsive, each keystroke responding instantly.

No regrets!

Cons: Can still be quite a bit loud. The Brown MX switches are the quieter of the bunch, but if you're looking for a quiet keyboard this is NOT the keyboard for you. That said, it's not as loud as other mechanical keyboards, it's definitely noticeable.

Other Thoughts: The cable on this puppy is quite thick. I've never seen a keyboard cable with two USB connectors.
