Linksys EA4500-NP SMART Dual-Band Wireless N900 Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Linksys EA4500-NP SMART Wireless Router 05/23/2016

This review is from: Linksys EA4500-NP SMART Dual-Band Wireless N900 Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

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.

5 out of 5 eggs Corsair Gaming K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE Keyboard 05/22/2016

This review is from: Corsair Gaming K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE Mechanical Keyboard, Backlit RGB LED, Cherry MX Speed RGB

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.

TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 500Mbps

5 out of 5 eggs TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT Powerline Adapter 04/22/2016

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 500Mbps

Pros: Works very well in a small apartment, 3 or 4 rooms apart with a kitchen and appliances in the middle. Connection was a solid 100Mbps (network), as advertised. Flawless connection streaming HD videos for several hours. Uses low power consumption. I love the small form factor design. Fits perfectly on any outlet, taking up very little space. Set up took no time at all. The computer connected to the network and the Internet within about 2 seconds after plugging in the Ethernet cord to the network port.

Cons: None so far. The adapters worked immediately right out of the box.

Other Thoughts: If you have a need for powerline adapters, you won't go wrong with these. I was very impressed with the easy and quick setup. Just plug it in and start surfing.
