5 out of 5 eggs Transfers data! 07/01/2016

This review is from: Coboc 15 ft. gold plated, High speed HDMI to HDMI A/V Cable (Black)

Pros: As used in its current configuration, it does the job I need it to.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I see people having issues when attempting to use it for ARC. I'm going to give it a shot and see what happens. Will report success or failure here soon.

EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-2978-KR 4GB FTW GAMING w/ACX 2.0, Silent Cooling Graphics Card

5 out of 5 eggs This is how you write a review. 07/01/2016

This review is from: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-2978-KR 4GB FTW GAMING w/ACX 2.0, Silent Cooling Graphics Card

Pros: Just bought a second one for SLI. Doom and The Witcher 3 run rock solid on ultra settings, though W3 with Hairworks on does run the cards in the 70-80 degree range in my Antec 1200 air cooled only case. I also have the A/C on in the room. Vsync enabled does drop the temps about 5 degrees though.

#1. No coil whine. There WAS annoying coil whine the first couple hours after I installed the card. Enough so that I was actually ready to remove it and return the card. It stopped for whatever reason and has not returned.

#2. No buzzing noise. Then again, I have an Antec 1200 with 6 fans, 2 CPU fans, PSU fan, and of course, the 2 GTX 970 fans, maybe the buzzing is drowned out by those fans.

#3. Haven’t gone above 67 degrees yet. Battlefield 4 Ultra 1920x1080. DA:I Ultra 1920x1080. Movie streaming on 2nd monitor as either game is played. I do have the optional ‘aggressive’ setting enabled for GPU fans in PrecisionX 16. I don’t consider that ridiculous, though it may be?

#4. Fans. Loud? Who knows, as my Antec 1200 sounds no different regardless the GPU fan speed.

#5. Backplate? I fail to see where it stated this was included. It didn’t. I didn’t expect it. I knew it wasn’t included. I KNEW it was sold separately or with the FTW+ card. I CHOSE to buy this version instead and NOT receive a backplate that was IN NO WAY implied, stated, or construed as included.

#6. Unnecessary for most, but perhaps necessary for some. I’d rather they include relatively unneeded material than omit any. I found the power cables and adapter both wastes of material and although very minute, senseless contributions to damaging earth. Perhaps they should not include those from now on. The stickers at least are a form of advertisement!

#7. I have NO idea if this card is stable at stock frequencies because it is a FACTORY OVERCLOCKED card. Why anyone would want to underclock this card to reference clocks then complain of instability is utterly bewildering!

#8. I’m not overclocking this card further than it already is. Why bother? I guess I could get 1 or 1.3 FPS more than the triple digits framerates I’m already getting… but it’s simply not worth my time.

#9. I didn’t need to touch the heatsink. Or fans. Or circuitry. Nothing felt like it was going to break. I did wonder if I’d break the card if my Antec 1200 case was dropped on it from about 4’. But I decided not to find out for sure.

#10. I’m relatively happy engineers moved the power connectors… I’m so tired of everything being in just the WRONG location! Edge of the card puts just enough tension on the power cables that I APPRECIATE the new location that ELIMINATES any unnecessary wiring stress when powering this card! Thank you Engineers!

#11. Active cooling would be an unnecessary expense on this card when applied to the GDDR5 RAM and the VRMs on this board. I believe eliminating unnecessary items beneficial for everyone, the entire World, if you will. *See #6

(continued in Other Thoughts)

Cons: Reviews are meant to help consumers decide whether or not to purchase a product. They aren't meant for expressing hindsight. Just because something probably should have been included in a purchase as wasn't, that product doesn't warrant a negative review! My Jeep should have included a 4" lift and 33" BF Goodrich MTs and a 12,000 lb Warn Winch with ARB bumper... it didn't but that does NOT mean I give it 3 out of 5 stars! If it was SUPPOSE to include those and didn't THEN it gets ZERO out of 5 stars.

Other Thoughts: #12. I paid what I paid at the time I paid it because: That was the price, that’s what I chose to pay, I did not choose to purchase a different item for a different or same price, I chose not to wait for possible new products at better prices and/or performance to arrive, I know prices CHANGE pretty much ALL the time, and that is just LIFE and roll with it. (utilizing price guarantees, rebates, what have you when possible of course, I’m not just going to throw my money away if I don’t have to!)

#13, 14, 15, 16, 17: I bought THIS card, not another one that has features this one DOES not have. I guess it would be akin to ‘reviewing’ a 4 cylinder mustang with NO options whatsoever to an SVT Mustang loaded to the hilt, trashing the 4 cylinder for NOT being the SVT edition! Why would one do that? Why wouldn’t one just BUY the loaded Mustang in the first place?

Almost the best $330 I’ve spent on a video card. #1 was the Diamond Monster3D Voodoo1 for $325 decades ago, #2 was the GTX570HD SC. This is probably #3 as far as performance per dollar spent increase over the GPU it’s replacing. (average of 2-4 years between upgrades… which at times is quite significant, so the above ranking is actually useless for pretty much anything other than to signify the $330 spent on this card was worth it, my system’s performance has noticeably improved with this product installed replacing a GTX670 FTW GPU.)

TP-Link RE590T AC1900 Touch Screen Wi-Fi Range Extender
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Very easy setup. Does what it's designed to do. 06/28/2016

This review is from: TP-Link RE590T AC1900 Touch Screen Wi-Fi Range Extender

Pros: My Wi-Fi application is all line of sight, about 200 feet from my Belkin AC1750DB router to the extender, and then another 100 feet to my laptop computer. The extender is used outdoors, but ishoused in a plastic enclosure to protect it from the elements. This TP-Link extender is replacing the outdated Netgear range extender I have been using. If you currently own a Netgear extender you are fully aware how severely plagued with issues they can be. I only mention this to explain the difference between my old unit and this TP-Link RE590T touch screen marvel of a device. I am extremely happy with the entire unit, but most specifically the touch screen interface. This eliminates the need to connect a PC via Ethernet cable for setting up the device. Everything is simple to understand, and super easy to set up. The range is vastly improved over my old device,as well as my connection speeds. Connected directly to my router via the included Ethernet cable, www.speedtest.net shows average speeds of 15Mbps download, and 5Mbps upload. When connected wireless a full 300 feet away, the same test shows less than 1Mbps drop in speed for both download and upload. My previous setup was typically ¼ of those speeds at best.You can choose to setup the device using just the touchscreen interface, without a PC, or by using the second scenario. To setup the device using the second scenario, just plug the device into a wall outlet near your computer. Locate and then join the wireless network TPxxx. Once joined, open a browser and navigate to http://tplinkrepeater.net. Enter the same default username and password (admin, admin) as denoted in the quick start guide, then follow the wizard to extend your networks. For any future changes you can simply visit http://tplinkrepeater.net from any browser.Your TP-Link RE590T AC1900 Touch Screen Wi-Fi Range Extender will have everything you will need for a super easy setup, all included in the box.• RE590T Range extender• Power supply• Ethernet cable (should it be required) • Documentation I fully recommend the RE590T due to its overall value, quality, and design. The real clincher is the touch screen interface, which makes for such an easy setup, and for me is the strongest selling point it has.

Cons: I can think of no “cons” to list for this wonderful device.
