This review is from: LINKSYS RE7000 Max-Stream AC1900+ Mu-Mimo W-Fi Range Extender
Pros: Really, really surprised at the performance and small foot print. Could ask for better but the technology doesn't exist yet. Linksys has definitely once again knocked it out of the park by pioneering this unit.
The 4x4 streaming is what sounds to be a gimmick at the moment if not all of your equipment supports this 'standard' , but I'm glad it's actually "future proof". Where my router has issues reaching, this does not, it's doing what a 2nd high-end router would be doing by repeating the signal, but at a fraction of the price.
I am eternally grateful for how easy Linksys has made the WPS process, it'd have to be connected out of the box to make it any more simple; but instead a single button press on the router and on the extender and you're good to go.
The gigabit port was used with my 4k TV for a while and I honestly did not notice much difference besides a slightly faster loading time for initiating an episode. no buffering at all after that; extremely smooth.
Here comes the best part, and that is connectivity with my xbox one. Downloads are now almost twice as fast, and makes me want to have purchased something alternative to this extender before but glad I didn't and can enjoy gaming much faster after an update, or installing/downloading a game.
Linksys, quickly becoming a company to follow as far as networking goes. Thanks for allowing me to review this item, and I can't wait to try more of your products.
Cons: As another reviewer mentioned, this does get hot, so just make sure to not cover it with a cloth or something similar to avoid possible problems.
Other Thoughts: Don't do the same mistakes I did and leave this out in the open for younger little humans to grab and disconnect.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SteelSeries Rival 100 Optical Gaming Mouse - Sakura Purple
Pros: Really like the weight of it and the ease of use. I was thinking claw grip on this would be a no-no, but it worked well for Overwatch, World of Tanks and BF4. I would like for it to be full plug and play so no software needs to be installed (and it doesn't, really), but you'll need it for some of the color and DPI settings.
Wife loved it on her Mac without making any adjustments so she'll probably keep this one that's for review and I'll end up purchasing another one. Steelseries is doing the same thing of bringing quality products to those with a lower budget, and I'm liking it.
Not exactly sure of which optical sensor is in it, but didn't even have to do the research for that due to not having problems.
There is no lag, nor jumping around on the screen, simply perfect for the screens that it was used on, from 1600x900 all the way up to 3840x2160.
As another user said, the 2000CPI might not be high enough for tons of users that need really accurate tracking (e.g. CS), but it is more than fine for BF4 and Overwatch running on a UHD monitor.
Palm grip is quite comfortable for office work, just feels right in any situation.
Cons: Might be a tad small for those of us with bigger hands, so be careful if you're one of those.
Other Thoughts: Although it's close to the company with the sails' offering, I think this one is slightly better since it comes in different flavors of LEDsREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Not a pro, but this is literally the same size as other drives for storage. Don't believe you can go wrong with it and the price is more than welcome when contrasting comparable products of other brands. The performance itself doesn't feel different than other 7200RPM drives but the cache is always welcome if you're into transferring large files and expect reliability. Once this drive starts going, unlike others, you'll have your files where they're supposed to go in a quick and efficient manner. I dod not suffer any errors nor disconnects as I've read throughout some reviews for other products. All in all, I cannot really distinguish this from another 4TB 7200 rpm drive, but that is because there's a certain threshold when it gets to the point that one of these SSHDs is necessary. I'm glad to recommend but beware of the small noise it emits if you're used to a near-silent environment. I did not use it for video production or editing, but that's what I'd say this is great for; that and storing all those family movies and pictures after they've been backed up to another location.
Cons: Can hear the disk emit a small whine when transferring large files, but this was just done for testing purposes, would most likely not experience this in everyday use.READ FULL REVIEW
