Corsair Gaming STRAFE RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Corsair STRAFE RGB Mechanical Keyboard 12/08/2015

This review is from: Corsair Gaming STRAFE RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown

Pros: Wow! This keyboard is absolutely amazing. Being in the IT Industry for many years I have experience using almost every type/brand of keyboard out there. Never have I been more impressed. This keyboard is solid... a super quality build. Great for gaming and typing. I love it.

My favorite part of the keyboard is the lighting. Every key can display every color on the rainbow you can imagine. The downloadable programmable software is great. Install it to configure the lighting on the keyboard. It can be programmed to do anything. The lighting effects are amazing. Currently, I have each key (area) assigned a specific color and when I strike a key, a ripple effect of colors flows through all the other keys. I have no words for how cool this is. If you want to impress someone, have them type on the keyboard when the lighting effects are turned on. There may be other keyboards out there that do this, but I love the Corsair design. You won't be disappointed. There is an extra USB port on the keyboard that is perfect for adding a mouse.

Cons: Heavy. This keyboard is heavy. But, no doubt, the weight is evidence for its quality. The USB cord is very thick and also heavy. But again, shouts quality. That's all, being heavy is my only complaint.

Other Thoughts: Assuming a cool lighting effect is active, the Corsair STRAFE RGB Mechanical keyboard will either really impress someone or majorly annoy someone (after they are impressed)... Yes, the lighting effects can be turned off. I cannot say enough good things about the keyboard. It is awesome. And it is worth every penny. Someone may say $150 is too much for a keyboard. But I guarantee the Corsair STRAFE Mechanical is worth it.

Belkin Thunderbolt 2 Express Dock HD with 1-Meter Thunderbolt Data Transfer Cable, Designed for Thunderbolt 2 Technology with 4K Resolution (F4U085tt)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Solid build quality and plenty of features in a small package. Mostly geared towards MacBook users, the Belkin Thunderbolt's most useful benefit is the ability to connect to monitors with UHD resolutions in addition to having three extra USB 3.0 ports available. It acts pretty much just like a typical docking station for a desk setup environment. Simply plug a MacBook into the provided thunderbolt cable and presto, it's docked.

Cons: It's not really a big deal, but all the wires connecting to the back seem to throw the balance off and the dock tends to tilt upward. 4K support is only for Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10 or higher. The only other negative thing to mention is the price. As high quality as it is, the Belkin Thunderbolt 2 is expensive. It's a high price to pay for convenience.

Other Thoughts: I definitely recommend the Belkin Thunderbolt 2 dock if there is a genuine need for one. Great quality, ease of use, and plug and play make it the go-to dock. But mainly this dock is geared towards MacBook users.

Securifi Almond+ Long Range Touchscreen Wireless AC1750 Router / Range Extender + Home Automation Hub (3 Minute Setup)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This router is brilliant. It's not often I get excited about messing with wireless networking but the Securifi Almond+ is a joy to set up, configure and use.

First of all the physical design is great. It can be wall mounted or stand on a flat surface. The touch screen is bright and super responsive. It even comes with a stylus but using a finger is more convenient. And the screen menu is ultra easy to navigate.

Out of the box setup took no time at all, just a few minutes to scroll through the on-screen wizard and presto, it's ready to go. This includes setting up the iOS app that lets you monitor and configure the router from anywhere.

The Securifi IP web interface is gorgeous, colorful and easy to use. Every setting imaginable is available for setting up routing, an access point, sensors, security... even creating rules for device behavior and Home automation at certain times during the day or for any day during the week. Advanced settings include a personal VPN, DMZ, Port forwarding, Routing, Device/Network statistics, graphs and more.

Cons: Rule creation is in beta. I guess that means updates to features are in the works.

Other Thoughts: For anyone looking for an all-encompassing Wireless router with incredible features, touch screen configuration, and a simple tool for home automation, the Securifi Almond+ is the way to go.
