This review is from: LINKSYS RE6300 AC750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender
Pros: Packaging is very good. The unit is very hi-tech modern looking and has a very solid feel. The little antennas on the side are a plus. I am very impressed with the Quick Start Guide.
It is extremely well written and I followed the directions and it worked on the first try. The only choice you have to make is how to install it. Your choice is to use WPS from your router, or if you want it Browser-based. That's it.
I live in an old 3 story townhouse. The cable modem and router are in the basement. It has always been a challenge to get and maintain a strong stable on thee top floor. My wife likes to use her laptop in her study which is on the top floor. We have used various range extenders with mixed results. We used the Linksys RE6300 and followed the instructions for WPS installation. We set it up in thee recommended location and I ran for the basement and held my breath. I few hours later my wife came into my office with a big smile on her face. She said she had used her laptop for a couple of hours on the top floor without losing the signal. Happy wife, happy life. LOL!
This is a good product for the price. We will highly recommend this product to anyone who needs a great range extender, that includes you.
Cons: No Cons.
Other Thoughts: If you want to get a range extender the Linksys RE6300 is for you. Itis simple to install and it works. Buy one. You won't be sorry.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK TC-7610 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
Pros: The TC-7610 arrived in a shipping box that looked like it had been the object of a rugby scrum. Once the battered box was opened, the actual box was pristine. Nice job Newegg. Once unpacked and unwrapped the TC-7610 looked very nice and the power cord was, well, a power cord. I plugged the unit in and everything lit up as it should. I unplugged my trusty Motorola modem, hooked everything up and got a big surprise from my ISP, COX. I was informed that this modem was not on their approved list. They provided me with a short list of approved modems or I could rent their modem for $10.00 a month.
I packed everything up and ran to a friends house. He has Comcast. We had no compatibility issues. The TC-7610 was virtually plug and play. The modem we replaced was a top of the line, very expensive unit a few years ago. The TP-7610 out performed his unit in quality and stability of signal during online gaming and surfing the net. We uploaded and downloaded with ease. This baby is a great value. It is highly recommended.
Cons: The biggest issue I have isn't with TP-LINK, its with COX. The inability to use this high quality product is restricted by their antiquated "Approved List". There are modems on that list that are years out of date with ancient technology. Get with the new technology COX!!
The only real negative I found seems to be an industry wide practice these days. The power cord is very short. It doesn't allow you to put the modem where you want to. It requires you to make a place to put it within 6' of the wall socket. My old modem was on top of a bookcase. The TC-7610 had to go on one of the lower shelves.
My high dollar surge suppressor has adjustable outlets, so the rectangular shape of the power box isn't an issue.
Other Thoughts: This is a very good product. Check with your ISP to see if you are fortunate enough to be able to use this baby. I am envious!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Gaming SCIMITAR RGB MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse
Pros: I am a 66 year old extreme gamer. I have been building rigs since the days of MS/DOS. I had a mouse with a little rubber ball in it that had to be removed and cleaned with alcohol at least 1x per week to keep it tracking properly. To say that I have seen the advancement of all gaming components would be a gross understatement.
I received this latest mouse from Corsair and was blown away by the packaging. It looks really cool. It is well packaged and not that hard to open. I have very large hands and it fits better than any mouse ever. The adjustment to move the buttons back and forth is very easy and the tool for this is provided. At first blush this would be the ideal gaming mouse. Installed the software and drivers from Corsair and plugged it in next to my Corsair M65 so I could compare them side-by-side. The Scimitar tracks better and is more accurate than the M65. This was evident with gaming use. It is a superior gaming mouse.
Cons: No adjustable weights.
No forward or backward buttons.
No instructions on how to write macros on the 12 buttons.
No pre-programmed profiles for the 12 keys for the most popular PC games.
Seems very light in weight for me.
The Quickstart Guide tries to be all things to all people and really misses the boat
Other Thoughts: This is a brilliant gaming mouse. If not having forward and reverse buttons isn't a concern and you know how to write macros for the 12 buttons, then this is the mouse for you. I will continue to use this mouse because of the accuracy at 1200 DPI. Maybe Corsair will come out with profiles for the most popular pc games and/or a writing on macros for dummies.READ FULL REVIEW
