LINKSYS RE6500HG Dual Band Wireless AC Range Extender
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Works good 06/18/2015

This review is from: LINKSYS RE6500HG Dual Band Wireless AC Range Extender

Pros: I was able to set this range extender up in less than 5 minutes. Setup was simple. Put on the antennas, Plugged it in. When the light on top lit up solid I navigated to my wi-fi connections and connected to "Linksys Extender Setup". There I entered my network credentials and the extender did the rest. Fast and simple. I was able to connect this to my TP-Link Archer C7 AC1750. I stepped out of my house and started walking down the street and did notice that I held a stronger signal for longer. The range increase was noticeable but not impressive. (see other thoughts)

The ethernet ports improve gaming! I ran a wireless test playing TF2 on a fairly outdated computer. Honestly, I thought the lag and skipping was caused from an older video card in it. Turns out that after I plugged it in to the ethernet connection on the extender the lag went away. Now I'm Impressed.

Cons: The unit base gets a little warm.

Other Thoughts: I believe that I may not notice an impressive increase in range simply because the extender; in my home is located too close to the router. My router is located in my basement. On the second story of my house I put my range extender. Basically if you had a reference point on the router and the extender at which you measured the range they would both be the same point. I suppose if I was to measure the increase in range increase it would be a bit more dramatic if I had another 5 stories in my home and was measuring up. OR If I was able to put the extender in my neighbors house it would jump my signal and also increase my range. I could see this item getting best use in a single story office building that the router was on one side and signal was a bit weak on the other side. Put the extender half way and it would surely improve the dead spot.

If your looking for an extender to improve dead spots or get a wired connection where you cant run wires then this extender is for you. Fast, simple and priced right! I recommend this product.

DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 240 CPU Liquid Cooler AIO Water Cooling Ceramic Bearing Pump Visual Liquid Flow with Dual120mm FDB PWM Fan Rubber Coating Deep Silent Support LGA 2011-v3
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 240 was packaged very well and the directions I thought were very clear. This cooler installs on a variety of AMD and Intel socket sets. I used this cooler to replace a stock Intel cooler on a core i5 4670. Using the Intel Extreme Tuning utility I ran benchmarks and a stress test that gave me great results.
Stock cooler at idle 32
Stock cooler under a 5 minute stress test reached a high of 82!
Using the Captain 240 at idle was 28 and under stress never went over 46. I'm very happy with the result. The red glow coming from the cooler is very cool, just wish it was in blue to match my case.

Cons: The 240mm radiator proves to be a challenge and for my cases did not provide a perfect mounting solution. My initial plan was to mount this cooler on my Zalman GS1200. After over looking this case this just was not going to happen. There was no place to mount it and no holes big enough to send the cpu heat sink to mount it outside the case. My other option was to install the 240mm radiator at the top of a Antec GX500. This case impresses me more and more every time I open it up. However, in this instance the Gigabyte UD motherboard that is installed has a large heatsink that prevents the 240mm radiator from lining up and being installed up top. I had to resort to mounting the radiator outside the case and running the tubes through the open port at the top. NOT an ideal option at all, but will have to do till I buy a new case.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this cooler. Everything about it screams quality. Just make sure your case can fit it.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: comfortable fit for kids. has a mic.

Cons: These didn't last a week. The plug where it plugs into the pc must have a bad connection because its not stable and one ear don't work.

Other Thoughts: Really wish I could find a headset option that would last more than a month.
