Pros: Great card for normal to heavy use. Read speeds are close to advertised spec, so no complaints there. But my interest is with the write speeds. Testing on a Windows 10 64bit Microsoft Surface Pro with five files totaling 1.2GB, I was able to copy/write the files from the 128GB SSD directly to the 32GB SD at speeds hovering around a mean of 20MB/s (after leveling off). Max write speed was 30MB/s and average was 18MB/s. This is in comparison to another class 10 32GB memory card (PNY brand) where the write speeds were consistently 15GB/s. As a result the SP outperformed.
Cons: Nothing really. Write speeds were high but inconsistent during the file transfer.
Other Thoughts: If you need a 32GB SD memory card for performances purposes, the Silicon Power SD card is definitely one to consider. There are so many variables that determine read and write speeds. For example, where the data is coming from, what it is going to and what it's going through are just a few. Direct connection from the SSD to the SD card slot is the best way to test. It performed as suspected and I am satisfied with the results.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works very well. Since I'm a "cable cutter" I stream constantly on every computer and device and have had no issues or hiccups. The setup was very easy. The latest firmware version was downloaded and installed automatically during setup. And you can choose your SSID and passwords on a single screen. The Linksys Smart WiFi abilities are pretty cool. You can access the router from any other computer on the Internet if a Linksys account is setup and tied to the router. Streaming and content can be regulated. It can also be controlled on a smart phone app. After setup, an icon for accessing the router was automatically placed on the desktop as well as a text file with the router ID information. Not very necessary but a nice convenience.
Cons: There's no stand for propping upright. I would like to have one of those.
Other Thoughts: This is the perfect router for anyone who wants to control, regulate and monitor content on a home network from anywhere.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The Corsair K70 RGB keyboard is pretty cool. Cherry MX mechanical keys really fly. If you like fancy lights, each key can do every color on the rainbow. The downloadable programmable software interface is great and actually works with several Corsair gaming keyboards. Install it to configure the keyboard and the preferred lighting animations. The lighting effects are very impressive. It's fun to show off. Currently, I have the keyboard programmed to ripple effect. Every time I strike a key, a ripple of colors flows out through the other keys. The brightness can be changed or turned off by the press of a button. The volume control is a textured little roller wheel in the top right-hand corner. There's even a button to disable the Windows key. This helps when gaming so someone doesn't accidentally jump to Windows by pressing the wrong button on the keyboard. A lot of AAA Windows games do not easily resume when going in and out of Windows mode. The keyboard has an extra pass-through USB port. It's a great place to put the gaming mouse. The solid aluminum frame oozes quality.
Cons: Heavy keyboard. Thick cable. Typing can be a little loud. I would not recommend in a quiet office environment.
Other Thoughts: The Corsair K70 keyboard is perfect for gaming and typing. If you are a fast typist, your fingers will fly over the keyboard. I can imagine professional secretaries would fall in love with keyboard, although it may be a little loud for offices.READ FULL REVIEW
