TP-LINK - Google OnHub Dual-Band Wireless AC1900 Gigabit Router -Blue
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

3 out of 5 eggs Google OnHub By TP-Link 01/19/2016

This review is from: TP-LINK - Google OnHub Dual-Band Wireless AC1900 Gigabit Router -Blue

Pros: Stylish, certainly not something you feel you need to hide or camouflage with another device or tuck away behind something nicer looking. If you need an easy to set up router, look no farther. By far this was the easiest router set up that I have ever experienced. It promises a great deal of future features and with the hardware it all ready utilizes it seems like it is nearly ready. The range on this router far out performs some of the better routers that I have used in the past. Its ability to actively seek out the channel with the clearest signal is a time saving feature and ensures the best quality signal.

Cons: As I stated, it has a great deal of promise for future features but, as it is it is simply not a finished product. Only time will tell if its developers are serious about taking it from a good product to a great one.

Other Thoughts: This will certainly be a router that anyone that needs the easiest one to set up should seek out. A quick download of the app from Google Play will get you connected in short order.

LINKSYS RE6300 AC750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender

5 out of 5 eggs Simple and Effective 12/03/2015

This review is from: LINKSYS RE6300 AC750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender

Pros: A 1-800 number to help you get it set up if you have trouble. Yadda Yadda dual band, cross-band, beam-forming, … etc. (all standard on most anything you buy like this now anyway). Works with any router… pretty much a necessity if they want to sell them.

Cons: Would love it in Black.. (my personal preference.) This model does not have outlet pass through.

Other Thoughts: The app for finding the optimal placement is nice, but in my case I had no choice but to go farther than the optimum area as there was no electrical outlet to plug into in the area. LOL

Speed… well although they say UP TO N300 + AC867 Mbps SPEED… Ahem, That is precisely what they mean. It is NOT going to increase the speed of your network beyond the limit of your slowest component, keep that in mind before you think that it is not functioning as it should in regards to network speed. These are capable of what they say they are.

Always liked Linksys products and would recommend this to my clients if they need one.

Seagate Game Drive for PlayStation STBD1000101 1TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Arguably the best of both worlds. 11/08/2015

This review is from: Seagate Game Drive for PlayStation STBD1000101 1TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Laptop SSHD Retail Kit

Pros: The solid state side of this drive does seem to provide a significant improvement in boot times. The best features this drive offer are the decreased boot time and the massive amount of storage it offers twice the amount as my 500GB PS3 had. The instructions were easy to follow it was a snap to swap out and transfer everything. Decent price.

Cons: There is no real way to monitor what is actually placed into the SS partition you have to rely on Seagates firmware to handle the job, personally I prefer to handle that part of it myself but that is only my personal opinion, and has no real bearing on the ability of the drive, which seems to function exactly as they suggest. The boot times don't initially show up at first, (certainly not on the first boot) but after a few times it does take effect as it "learns" the system.

Other Thoughts: The solid state side of this drive does seem to provide a significant improvement in boot times, but with no real way to monitor what is actually placed into the SS partition you have to rely on Seagate's firmware to handle the job, personally I prefer to handle that part of it myself but that is only my personal opinion as one that builds and repairs PC's on the side, and has no real bearing on the ability of the drive, which seems to function exactly as they suggest.

For the most part I did experience an improvement in performance although I would not consider it leaps and bounds. The best features this drive offer are the decreased boot time and the massive amount of storage it offers twice the amount as my 500GB PS3 had.

The instructions were easy to follow it was a snap to swap out and transfer everything.

For the price it is a decent upgrade, and if you find you are running out of space on your existing drive this one is certainly worth the purchase. Keep in mind that if your old drive is getting full once everything is transferred over to this one you could reformat the original and use it in a usb enclosure for extra storage. Over all I find it a good choice for anyone needing to upgrade and would fully recommend it to them.
