Pros: This is my second Power Line Wi-fi Range extender I have had the chance to test for newegg. I’ve had this device for about a month and have been loving it ever since. Let’s start with the pros:
1. This is a very simple setup device. For just its basic functions of passing the connection through the power lines in my apartment, all you have to do is plug the main end near your router and the second one plugs in wherever you need more range on your wi-fi or just to access the internet through the power line connection.
2. After initial setup, doing more of the advanced functions is pretty easy. It allows for an entirely different named network. Basically, this can help when you want to only connect to the range extender versus still trying to connect to your original wi-fi network.
3. This unit comes with 2 ethernet cables included…one to connect the one end to the router and the other is to connect to any device you want.
4. The range extender feature is nice as I can now access wi-fi on my deck outside…I normally couldn’t do that with my normal wi-fi network.
5. Speeds are pretty fantastic whether it is through the wi-fi extension or through the power line network.
Overall, this is a great device for those looking to extender their existing wi-fi and have power line connections to devices that require a wired connections like blue ray players, older non-wifi televisions and older gaming systems.
Cons: Like with most devices, this one does come with its share of cons…not big enough to take away an egg, but just suggestions for TP-Link to fix for future versions of this device:
1. The LED’s are a bit distracting if you put the device on an outlet visible to the eyes…for me, mine is hidden behind furniture, so it does not affect me unless I move it to another outlet.
2. The documentation could be a tad clearer to explain certain functions of the device, but most of your answers can be found through google.
3. Trying this on a power surge protector can be tricky…I have read forums where sometimes it works out a power surge protector and sometimes it doesn’t. You’ll just have to try it out for yourself.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this device is a great device for its price. It can extend your WiFi to help you get a better signal upstairs, downstairs or outside. This device also helps with trying to provide a wired connection wherever you want within your home, so those older devices that don’t have wifi can now get a connection to the internet.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ88-128G-G46
Pros: To start off my review, I must say I am impressed at how much storage can now be put in a device as small as your thumb. I received this from Newegg a week or so ago and have been doing various testing modules with this device. Here are the best pros I can come up with for this device:
-On USB 3.0, this device is super quick. I was getting average speeds of 140MB/s when transferring various data files from my computer to the device. When transferring files from the device to my computer I was getting close to 200MB/s. Overall, this device blazes transfers when using USB 3.0.
- Device is small enough to be placed in the pocket as well as on a keyring.
-The build quality of the device is nice and solid. It has a nice toggle to push the header in and out and is secure so it won’t pop out in your pocket.
-Having the 128GB version is awesome as it stores all of my music and movies on such a small device that I can take anywhere and enjoy from any computer.
Cons: For the cons, there are not any of them that I deem necessary to take too many eggs away from this product, but here are a list of them in-case you wanted to know:
-USB 2.0 speeds are not the greatest, but this device is not really for it. When using it, to get the max speeds out of it, use it with a USB 3.0 port on your computer.
-The device is pretty expensive considering the GB per dollar value, but you have to remember: This device is much smaller than any HDD or SSD drive you’ll find, so in the end you are paying for the ease of mobility.
-The file locker program is a bit of a pain to use. In the end, I got rid of it and just used 3rd party software to secure my files.
Other Thoughts: This device is a great asset for anyone who likes to carry large amounts of data/files with them. If you only have a little bit of data/files to carry around with you, I would recommend just getting the free cloud services offered by Google, Microsoft, Dropbox…etc and manage your files on the cloud instead. I personally like the device as I can take it anywhere with me and have my movies and music with me. The speed it offers is great as you are not sitting for hours on end waiting for files to transfer to the device. I would recommend this device to my brothers in the IT world to carry data files around or someone who has a large collection of music and movies their collection that wants to be able to access those on the go.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Raptor HS30 Dual 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset
Pros: So, when this came in the mail, I was a bit excited to have the chance to test them out for NewEgg. Let’s go ahead and dive into the pros:
-Overall, the unit itself is very comfortable to wear. If you look at the pictures newegg has, you can see a bit of cushion for the top of your head to make sure you feel comfortable while wearing these and gaming.
-The unit itself comes with a nice voice control on the wire that helps you increase/decrease/mute volume pretty easily.
-Gaming wise, the unit was pretty great. During some WoW raids I was able to talk and hear what my guild was saying. As far as noise cancelling, I could still hear a bit of noise when I tested it by turning my TV up a little, but overall it did get rid of some noise. The Microphone I didn’t have any issues with as my raid teams could hear me pretty clearly.
-The colors on this are to my liking as I am a big fan of Black and Red.
Cons: Unfortunately, I found a couple issues with this unit:
-Comfort wise, the top of the head cushion was nice, but the ear pads do not fit the ears as well since they are round and not shaped for an ear. Occasionally I had to take them off to give my ears a break as they made them a bit sore.
-The microphone is super fragile. I almost broke it when getting everything adjusted for the shape of my head.
-The unit is not wireless, so at times, I found myself constantly entangling my arms in the wire. It would have been better if some sort of clip was offered to keep it in place.
-Noise cancelling is not as fantastic as I’d like it to be. I still hear some loud noises through these.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this unit is a good “Starter” unit for someone just getting into gaming with a headset. I ended up giving mine to one of my friends who gave it to one of his children and they seem to enjoy it. I would say for the quality, it matches the price that NewEgg offers. If you’re a hardcore gamer, I would definitely profess on getting a better pair of headphones than this unit as these probably will only test your patience for a couple months. If you end up trying these out, I do want to warn you to be careful of the microphone arm when setting it up on your head so you don’t end up breaking it before even getting to try it.READ FULL REVIEW
