Pros: You might be thinking, it's just RAM, how can someone be blown away? Well, it starts with the looks. There is nothing better looking than what this new company is pushing out, even if you decide to shell out more cash for the company with the sails. Although subjective, I would hope people can agree it does look good, and it brings a whole new tray of possibilities for matching these modules with any system. The off-chrome look is perfect, and makes the modules stand out in any motherboard. The color, of course, will match most themes, even if using crazy color such as green/yellow. I just can't think of any others that do it so well.

To get to the overclocking results. I will not even mention the motherboard I used, as that would be most likely irrelevant given all of them will vary (even if using the same exact model).

I was able to get the memory to CAS 11, 2133, at only 1.55v. Is it great? No, but it does show how capable this memory is of reaching overly decent overclocks, with barely any voltage bumps. Klevv is heading the right way, and with Hyunday Electronix backing them, I see this company growing quickly. It is quite refreshing to see a new face that did all the correct preplanning, and brought an excellent-working product to market. Can't wait to see what they come up with next.

Cons: Literally none.

ZyXEL PLA5206KIT HomePlug AV2 AV1000 Powerline Gigabit Ethernet Adapter, Up to 1000 Mbps

Pros: It's easier to set up than it is to walk up to the fridge and opening it.
Cannot stress, again, how easy this is. It should not even come with instructions.
The wireless speed with the ISP provided router is not even half of what this gives, and it is quite a big space to cover. Would have not thought to buy a couple of these before receiving this review sample, but I now keep recommending them for those dead spots around the house. Do not understand why someone would pay more for wireless extenders that don't match this speed and coverage. Hooked this right up to a 1Gbps switch and off we went with all the computers and devices in the downstairs game room.
If you can turn on a phone and plug it in to charge, you can set this up, hassle-free. Besides providing an almost flawless connection, and telling you exactly what range of speeds you are getting (with built-in indicator), they look nice enough to be out in the open

Cons: Expected slightly higher speed, and I would like the users to be informed that they will not see 100% of the speed they get when wired directly next to the router/modem. It might be unrealistic to expect better, but I would hope a kit of these (at this price) would do the trick.

Linksys AC1900 Dual Band SMART Wi-Fi Gigabit Router (EA6900)

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent for its price 03/04/2015

This review is from: Linksys AC1900 Dual Band SMART Wi-Fi Gigabit Router (EA6900)

Pros: As mentioned by other users, this is quite easy to set up and get running. Took about 15 minutes to have it working as my other more expensive router, with very similar range. Had my wife set it up a 2nd time after resetting, to see how easy it would be for a less tech-oriented person, and I was not disappointed. It's quite refreshing to see how brands are now catering to users with less experience, but still offering great support and options for set up. Any device that does not require me to call in due to confusing instructions is a plus in my book. Application on the phone is easy to navigate, but lags at times, could be fixed in future revisions.

Options given also require some experience if trying to use manual settings, but VPN is quite easy to set up and configure further, not a problem for a user with just basic router knowledge.

Only have a 1000+ sqft area to go by, but the signal was pretty consistent across the floor plan, and speeds did not change much even when using multiple streaming services.

Beamforming is very welcome, as it redirects signal better throughout the space and there is not much room to improve there.

Cons: This would be twice as good if DD-WRT was supported, but I have hope of it being compatible soon. Not the manufacturer's fault, so no eggs are taken off.

I have to say the price is a bit steep, and needs mention, but it wouldn't deter me from purchasing it knowing of its capacities, use of use, and limitations beforehand.
