Thinklux 4-PK-TKUCA35S01-4.5W-830-E12 40 Watts Equivalent LED Light Bulb
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: LED Low Wattage Candelabra bulbs
Good Fit
Bright off white color

Cons: Not all 4 worked.
I expected a brighter white color. (my bad)

Other Thoughts: This may be an isolated incident but one of my bulbs flickered for a few seconds and went out. I re-tightened the bulb into the socket but it did not light again. The price was good enough and I only needed 3 of the 4 so I don't mind and did not make a big deal out of it.

ASRock G10 AC2600 Gigabit Gaming Router+ Free HDMI 2-in-1 Travel router+ Miracast adapter

3 out of 5 eggs Top Shelf Router with Lots of Features. 11/14/2015

This review is from: ASRock G10 AC2600 Gigabit Gaming Router+ Free HDMI 2-in-1 Travel router+ Miracast adapter

Pros: -Very fast gigabit interface wired.
-IpV6 ready (future proof)
-Great smart phone interface with Miracast
-IR Learn and Transmit is great for switching on device while you are away from home.
-Wireless is fast
-Firewall is done well with DDoS and lots of Security settings
-Lots of extras with the Wireless Wifi Router (a,b,g,n) Speeds for in hotel room access to other devices.
-With an extra HDMI interface on a hotel TV you can turn that dumb TV into a smart TV with Miracast.
-Printer Server works well.
-USB interface works great with large USB 3.0 portable drives.
-Very Nice Design Elements
-Guest options allow Guest to access for a specified time then they are dropped.

Cons: -Wow That light is Bright. (You can turn it off if you don't want it on) But it could light up a small closet.
-Internal antennas are not very strong.
-Could be difficult for the average user to set up for all the functions.
-Smart Phone is required for some of the higher functionality extras.

Other Thoughts: The AsRock G10 is a Router that is ready for the Future as internet IpV6 will be the new standard as more internet devices come into use. The printer server interface is nice to have and the Miracast featured external Router can make that dumb Hotel TV Pretty Smart. If you are a tech savvy traveler that is on the go a lot and you want to have better access to your home remote controlled systems this is great for the Business/Gamer on the go. You could turn on a remote camera and a TV or Remote lighting or heater or fan and access them anywhere in the world you are with an internet connection. This was made for gamer's to allow a more targeted throughput with priorities that can be set for internet intense gamer computer units and less for those tablets and smart phone apps. This is a great router but this router is the ultimate for the Business traveler on the go and want to access your home network for home media access. The Wireless power is not as strong as some of the other high end routers with external antenna. I do like the feature and the light could be used as a great night light for the back yard; if you have a need for that. But they did take that into consideration by giving you an off switch option to that in the set up. Overall I like this router a lot for its extra's and I am currently using it as my main router because of the extra USB 3.0 connections for Printers and for Data Devices and if you are on the go and want to have more control over your home while you are away this router is worth the consideration.

CORSAIR RMx RM650X 650W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Power Supply
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Great Enthusiast Choice of Power 10/20/2015

This review is from: CORSAIR RMx RM650X 650W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Power Supply

Pros: 80+ Gold Standard
Japanese Capacitors
Fully Modular
Silent Running
SLI / Crossfire Wiring Capability
Sleeved wires are neatly done
7 year Warranty.

Cons: Price could be an option (You get what you pay for with PSU's)
Does not have the usb interface of the top i Model
Wiring is not the flat ribbon type that you find in some models.

Other Thoughts: As with a bottle of a Crown Royal this Power Supply comes wrapped in its own soft string pulled bag. The wires that come with the system also come in a storage bag as well since you will probably use this for upgrading at some time or another in the future. The Power Supply is heavy for its size as all quailty power supplies are. The confidence in this product is the 7 year warranty that tells me that Corsair themselves have confidence in the quality of this power supply unit. The look of the power supply is also very nice with silver lettering a satin black powder coating and the grey corsair fan that you would find on the H80's or H110s.
The Sleeved wires are long and have very nice connectors that are not brittle or removable as some can be. Also all the wiring is in black and the sleeving is a nice mesh that is tightly wrapped around the wires and the generous amount of shrink that came with mine insures that the mesh will not bunch up with handing. The connectors are keyed and the connections on the Power Unit are clearly marked.
The Fan stays dormant until 260 watts or more power is being used. Then the fan has a variable speed control to make sure that it is running just fast enough to cool the interior.
The efficiency of this unit gets higher as the wattage needs grow topping out a little over 90% from 50% to 75% load.
Even at full load the efficiency is over 88% so maxing out this unit would not harm your components or the Power Supply itself.

Overall this unit is the same as it's more expensive big brother ecept for the Information USB inputs that come with the top of the line model. Overall this Power Supply is priced right because there is a lot that you get with this unit.
Packaging is very good to insure that the Power Supply comes as you would expect from a new product and the extras make this Power Supply a must have for people that love to overclock and game til the morning light.
