This review is from: Corsair Gaming SCIMITAR RGB MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse
Pros: Corsair Gaming SCIMITAR RGB MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse is awesome to bad I'm just to old and set in my ways to fully enjoy it. It has everything a gamer should need in an MMO mouse. First off the soft-touch kinda rubberized material coating it makes it feel very nice in your hand. Nice tactile clicks from all buttons. 12 program-able buttons to use for making macros of your moves for your games. 12000 DPI optical sensor for fast response and precise movement. Pretty much fully program-able lighting to make it uniquely your own. The 12 side buttons are as sated fully program-able and even slide front to back to position it exactly where you need/want it, and locks down securely with the included key. Excellent build quality but I expect nothing less from a Corsair product, They have proven time and time again that they make things right and to last, that's why they back it up with a great warranty. I am very pleased with how this mouse performed and it has a very attractive price point. Another point for this is that if you have the RGB keyboard and headphones the included CUE Link software will control all Corsair RGB products.
Cons: OK cons gotta say what I felt here but as I said previously I'm an old gamer and pretty set in my ways and this mouse while great left me a sour taste. So first and foremost why no pre-included macros?? If I understood it correctly this was built with a WoW player assisting in it. So why no WoW macros or any for the popular games out currently, sure one can argue everyone does it different but thats where customization comes in. Secondly NO included instructions on how to make the macros not everyone has the knowledge of how to do this. Thirdly while they tried to make each column of buttons (the 12 on the side) textually different I found it difficult to tell which was which while gaming in a fast paced environment. Fourthly the placement of the 12 side buttons gave me no real place to put my thumb while not needing to use those buttons so I found myself accidentally pressing them while just moving the mouse around.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is an awesome product and if I was younger and wanted to reteach myself how to use a mouse I'd be all over it. Great build quality very responsive and accurate great pricing point. Just cant get past those extra buttons that for some may be hard to program and handle due to no place to rest thumb while not using buttons.
Corsair keep up the good work.
This review is from: NETGEAR EX7000 AC1900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender
Pros: The NETGEAR EX7000 AC1900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender is awesome. Its super easy to setup and go the average Joe/Jane should have no issues using this extender. Come nicely packaged with all parts already installed so its simple plug and play feature will work for everybody. But if you want or need a more advanced setup that option is available to you as well. Supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz freq. Dual cored 1GHz processor to help maximize your wifi performance. This extender can also be used as an access point and with its 5 Ethernet ports you can easily hardwire items in the area of the extender. I dont have a 10,000 sq ft home to test its claim on that but I can say ithout a doubt it covers my whole 2500sqft home and then some I was able to get very respectable service even to the furthest corner of my yard. My wife is happy she no longer suffers from dragging speeds while outside sitting on the porch having a smoke lol. And the DNLA server is awesome as well I have to use DNLA due to my semi smart tv's lack of apps. So anything that is DNLA compatible is a huge plus for me.
Cons: About the only con is the price but truth be told I thinks its worth every penny for how great it is. But some may go a different route due to the cost.
Other Thoughts: If your looking to enhance the strength of your wifi signal throughout your home and tired of fighting your isp for it then this baby is what you need. I work for a major isp as a service technician and I know what people want but due to cost concerns we just cant put equipment in everybody's home with the knowledge they may/will not care for it. One of the reasons they now charge for modem rentals. But I'm off track this will without a doubt solve your range issues due to limited range of just about every wireless modem/router they provide. So again if your looking at improving your homes overall wireless experience dont hesitate this is the product you want/need.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-828DRU AC3200 Tri Band Wireless Router
Pros: This review is for the TRENDnet TEW-828DRU AC3200 Tri Band Wireless Router. I have done several reviews for networking equipment since I started with the Egg Expert program and I just about passed on this one, well because they all pretty much are the same these days. well I was proved wrong with this router. I took it out of the package and my wife said if that thing starts talking or walking I'm out lol. To be honest its kinda cool looking kinda reminds me of a decpticon when the all-spark hit the appliances lol. Anyway I got off track there, this thing is so blazing simple to setup and configure I believe even the techno challenged out there will have no issues. And its packed with a super easy to navigate GUI that will aide you with taking every ounce of its utility to the max. One part I particularity found fascinating is the USB ports and how you can set them up as different server types depending on what you have plugged into them. One is a DNLA server that will allow seemless and easy networking of a USB storage drive loaded with your media to work via your network. I also gained a significant range increase over my ISP provided router to reach those areas of the house that were borderline before. I'm sorry I cannot give a total foot range increase as I'm in Texas and we've been hammered by storms and it was raining every time I tried to aquire those numbers. But well go with a bar reading instead. My ISP router on my balcony 1bar the Trendnet router 3 bars and no speed loss measurable. All in all a great router.
Cons: I hove no cons whatsoever to list here at all I found nothing I can complain about with this unit.
Other Thoughts: Great range Great router Great feature set. I strongly recommend this router to anyone looking for a good everyday router. yeah its up there in price but truth be told if ya want to skimp on the cost of a router you will get what you are paying for. Performance cost money and this baby delivers across the board.READ FULL REVIEW
