NETGEAR EX7000 AC1900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Fast Wireless Connections 07/31/2015

This review is from: NETGEAR EX7000 AC1900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender

Pros: The EX7000 is easy to setup and configure. The options are network extender where the EX7000 connects to your existing network via wireless. You can extend both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz at the same time or you can use the fast lane option which allows you to choose one band to extend the wireless network and use the other band to connect your client laptops, tablets, etc. I chose to connect the EX7000 to my wireless network using the 5GHz band. The extender connected at 1300Mbps I was then able to connect my laptop to the extender using the 2.4 GHz band. Once connected in this manner, I was able to get transfer rates of 25MB/s. That is enough bandwidth to watch full uncompressed 1080p movies.

I also used the EX7000 as a wireless access point to test out the range. I enabled both the 2.4GHz and 5 GHz bands. Netgear lists 700mW amplifiers on the specs page and they did not fail to deliver. The EX7000 provided a 25% increase in the range over my current dual band access point.

Cons: The only issue I ran into was when connecting the EX7000 to a tri-band router. I had to turn off SmartConnect on the router to get connection speeds greater than 300 Mbps. Smart Connect is a feature of tri-band routers that combines the two 5GHz channels into one SSID. Once that feature was disabled, the EX7000 connected at 1300 and everything worked as expected.

Other Thoughts: First time setup was simple. I plugged in the EX7000 and turned it on. The extender SSID appeared and I was able to connect my laptop to it. The configuration web page presented the Netgear Genie web app. The Genie web app presents an intuitive interface and lets you choose how you want to setup the device. Network Genie displays the status of the EX7000 on the homepage. You get an easy to understand picture of what bands are being used, the speed at which the extender is connected and what devices are connected.
The Netgear Genie also allows you to configure the media sharing options, file sharing options and printer sharing settings. I was able to plug in a USB hard drive and stream stutter free movies to my connected laptops and tablets.

EVGA 02G-P4-3751-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 2 GB of screaming GDDR5 RAM. This card does not need additional power from your power supply. The fan is within acceptable levels. Yo hear it but it is not annoying. This card runs everything I can throw at it.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: This is a good option for a gaming machine. I received the rebate after 7 weeks.
