Belkin F9K1015 N300 Wi-Fi Range Extender
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Belkin F9K1015 N300 Wi-Fi Range Extender 10/25/2016

This review is from: Belkin F9K1015 N300 Wi-Fi Range Extender

Pros: There's not much to this thing. Super easy setup. Plug it in. Turn on a computer. Search for the Belkin signal. Open a browser and it takes you straight to the setup page. Connect to the Wireless router and enter the network password. Done. After the setup, connect to your home router signal as usual.

Cons: A little too simple. At the end you kinda wonder if anything had been done. I guess this is not really a con. No 5GHz support.

Other Thoughts: Great little device. Small and compact. Practically fits in the palm of your hand. Range is decent. Works pretty well in a two story house, between stories. I definitely recommend this product if you want to get a good boost to signal.

NETGEAR R7800 Nighthawk X4S AC2600 Smart WiFi MU-MIMO Gigabit Router
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs NETGEAR R7800 Nighthawk X4S AC2600 08/24/2016

This review is from: NETGEAR R7800 Nighthawk X4S AC2600 Smart WiFi MU-MIMO Gigabit Router

Pros: Easy setup. Attach the antennas, connect to broadband, connect to Ethernet (or WiFi), open a browser to get started. The Netgear Genie (setup wizard) starts up automatically upon first connection. The firmware update detects automatically and installs within a couple of minutes. MIMO WiFi allows for continuous simultaneous streaming between all wireless devices. I like the on/off button, this is much more preferred than having to unplug the adapter to power cycle. The admin GUI is very nicely designed. I love the bold colors and images. It makes navigating very easy and quick. Two modes, basic and advanced. The home page displays realtime statuses of every type of connection. There is pretty much nothing you can't do with this router: Connect up to two USB 3.0 storage devices and one eSATA storage device, to be shared among all devices connected to the network. Awesome parental controls can be downloaded and configured. The WiFi range is top-notch due to the amplification.

Cons: None. You get what you pay for, and you get a lot with this router.

Other Thoughts: The Nighthawk X4S router is highly recommended for home use. The range is excellent and it’s made for many devices to be connected at one time. This day and age, everything is wireless and continuous streaming is the norm. It's easy and quick to set up and configure so no one should have any problems getting it up and running. I have very high praise for the Nighthawk X4S and would recommend it to anyone who wants the best in home routers.

Silicon Power 32GB Elite microSDHC UHS-I/U1 Class 10 Memory Card with Adapter, Speed Up to 85MB/s (SP032GBSTHBU1V20NE)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

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.
