This review is from: SteelSeries 62250 SENSEI Wireless Professional Laser Gaming Mouse
Pros: This mouse is impressive. The control console gives you the power to change any setting that the heart desires. There are four buttons, two on each side that's programmable. You can in theory make any button do anything. You can change the color of the logo, or base to be whatever you would like it to be. There are multiple configurations for the sensitivity, battery performance rates, angle snapping, polling rate. Really any setting that you could think of can be changed.
With that out of the way the mouse feels nice in the hand, you can use either the right or left hand. It's light. I really like how it feels in the hand.
The charging base is nice. You just toss it there whenever you walk away from the computer and your battery will never be dead. I have yet to fully drain the battery.
In wired mode you feel the cable but no more than any other wired mouse.
Cons: Biggest con that i can come up with is the cost. It's priced about sixty dollars above what it should be in my opinion.
Only other con is no user replaceable battery. In the G700 you can replace the battery with a standard rechargeable AA battery. Granted the G700 is much bigger.
Other Thoughts: If this product was priced more competitively it would definitely be in the running for something I would consider buying for myself or recommending to a friend or client. On sale for closer to a Benjamin it's a great mouse.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Simple enough to install. I just plugged it in, had the cd in the tray and directed the driver search to the proper folder. I personally prefer to not install the utilities that come with the wireless card. They tend to cause more issues than they help.
I was able to get on the 5 GHz spectrum
25 MB/s sustained download speed
8 MB/s sustained upload speeds
On 2.4 GHz spectrum
20MB/s sustained download
8MB/s sustained upload
Overall it was pretty solid for intranetwork transfers. There was no drop in internet connection via speedtest for access to the outside world.
Overall I didn't notice any difference in the connection when browsing websites or doing anything that I normally do online.
Cons: It gets warm. I have always been hesitant of the USB ones because I had several overheat probably 5 years ago now. I just toss in a PCI/PCIE card in any build that wants a wifi card. That being said it held up to a month of abuse and didn't degrade in performance at all. I covered it with a towel for a few days to see if anything happened and it didn't overheat or falter at all.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is pretty good for the price. If I knew anyone looking for a relatively inexpensive USB wifi adapter I would recommend this to them. It works and seems to be incapable of overheating which is always a concern with these type of items.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The setup was relatively easy. It might have been a little confusing for someone with no background to setup.
I really like the feature that you can turn off the lights at the back of the router. I have not come across that before.
Performance wise it covers my entire house no problem while being placed in the basement on one far side.
Speed wise I get the same speed test results behind the router and directly connected to modem.
Local network I'm able to fully saturate a gigabit connection with a file transfer no problem.
Wireless speed is about average. Nothing mind shattering but perfectly fine for 99% of tasks
Cons: I can really only come up with two.
The first being that it would be nice to be able to put ddwrt on the router but the chipset used prohibits it.
I've had bad experience with former linksys routers overheating and power cycling. No problems with this one yet though.
Other Thoughts: Overall I really like the router. The one thing stopping me from it replacing the router i had before is the lack of support for ddwrt or even the future possibility of it.
It's a solid performer so far but I probably would go elsewhere for the cost of this router. Looking for one with similar specifications that supports ddwrt.
