Motorola Surfboard Extreme SBG6782-AC DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem and AC1750 Dual Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice web interface, easy to configure, has both 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz radios, does not require external power supply, includes cable modem, 4 ports gigabit switch and WiFi access point in single housing. WPS can be disabled in settings. Allows 2 primary wireless networks and up to 6 wireless guest networks. Range is great in 2 levels apartment with brick walls.

Cons: Pretty large device and might not fit all places. Designed to be placed vertically only. Does not allow to enter custom DNS entries.

Other Thoughts: Purchased from local store to replace dated DOCSIS 2.0 Linksys modem. Using this with Cox in Virginia. Cox's subscriber self-configuration did not work and I had to make a phone call. After first call modem started to work properly, but I didn't get expected 50 mbps. Made second call to Cox, employee told me that they didn't switch DOCSIS 2.0 to 3.0 in modem profile configuration file. After this modem is working well and I am getting correct transfer rates.

Corsair K95 Cherry MX RGB Red Mechanical Keyboard

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome Keyboard, Difficult To Program 11/20/2014

This review is from: Corsair K95 Cherry MX RGB Red Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: This is sophisticated keyboard that has an ARM microprocessor and display controller inside, and requires 2 USB connection to supply power to it. Body of keyboard is made of high quality, nice-to-touch black anodized aluminum, optional wrist rest is included. Buttons are made of quality plastic. Each individual button can be easily programmed with included software. Keyboard was recognized and functioned properly with MacBook Pro. 4-position switch lets user to choose how fast keyboard responds to key press, fastest rate is 1000 times per second and slowest rate is 125 per second.

Cons: Included software lets you program static colors for each key or groups of keys easily, but programming any type of animation requires user to have time and patience. I ended up downloading user-made files from corsair website.

Other Thoughts: This keyboard is available in red, brown and blue variants. Color indicates type of switches installed in keyboard: red switches are commonly used in gaming keyboards due to low actuation force, brown switches are best option for typing keyboards because they do not click and finally blue switches require additional force to be activated and are relatively loud in operation.

ASRock Z97 Extreme3 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Great inexpensive multipurpose motherboard 08/16/2014

This review is from: ASRock Z97 Extreme3 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Affordable motherboard that has everything that intermediate home or office user needs, and even suitable for entry-level gaming builds. Supports latest 5th generation Intel processors (in my build I used Core i7-4790K processor). Plenty of USB 3.0 ports (four of them are on rear Input/Output panel and two additional USB 3.0 ports can be added to front or rear panel though MB header) and also two USB 2.0 (with ability to add four additional ports through two MB headers) are provided. Up to three monitors can be connected to this MB simultaneously, and if you use processor with built in graphics (such as Core i7-4790K that i used in my system) then no additional graphics card is required. However to get maximum performance I do recommend adding discrete video adapter (you also can get two of them and connect them with SLI bridge card or CrossFire bridge in case of use AMD GPUs). Additional headers that will be of value for system builders are infrared header (this lets you add infrared receiver and transmitter that can be used to control media software with your TV Remote Control), COM header and Chassis Speaker header. All of USB 2.0 and 3.0 rear panel and onboard headers, built in audio chip, LAN port have protection from Electrostatic Damage. Onboard LAN port equipped with multifunction indicator LEDs (provides visual information about connection status and also about link speed). Six 6.0 Gb/s connectors support RAID0, RAID1, RAID5 and RAID10. CPU fan connectors are 3-pin and 4-pin connectors, so that builder can use pretty much any standard fan. All fan connectors come with tachometers and information about fan speeds can be read through software.

Cons: Not really a con, rather a features that I personally find of no value nor practical use: ASRock Cloud, ASRock APP Charger and ASRock APP Shop.

Other Thoughts: Newegg is best place to purchase this board in terms of price and speedy delivery with quality packaging. When upgrading a system using this motherboard make sure that you have 4th of 5th generation of Intel CPU (socket 1150).
