This review is from: GAMDIAS Demeter GMS5000 Optical FPS Gaming Mouse 5 Programmable Buttons, 2000 DPI
Pros: It was great while it lasted.
Cons: It has developed an intermittent double-click with the middle clicker.
Other Thoughts: I left a very positive and glowing review for this mouse back in July of last year after a few days of ownership. I still think it's a great mouse, but there it goes after less then 10 months. Now it's randomly double-clicking when I use the middle clicker. It's nothing more than a nuisance, but it could really mess me up in video games if I was still actively playing them.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's very fast, it's pretty cheap, and you get that high Quality that Crucial has always been known for.
Other Thoughts: I just ran HDTune Pro 5.0 on this for a single Read test. Minimum: 199.9MB/sec, Maximum: 394.2MB/sec, Average: 361.9MB/sec. Is that even necessary? Well, I'll tell you this, I'm coming from an Intel X-25 series and this feels noticeably faster during browsing, such as when switching pages, etc. Access time is when these things really blow any RAID array out of the water with a 0.055ms access time, the read burst rate was 172.9MB/sec, and CPU usage on my i3 3220 was 4.9%. I'm pretty sure the only reason this drive didn't perform better is because I have a cheap motherboard with a single stick of RAM. It's still a boss, can't wait to get some games loaded on it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA2010KIT AV200 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 200Mbps
Pros: Low price, great solution for problematic wireless, works better than wireless, comes with everything you need, very easy and fast to set up.
Cons: The Ethernet cables it comes with are only 10Mbit, but I think we're lucky to even get cables. Also, streaming HD video doesn't require more than 10Mbit so eh, not taking off an egg.
Other Thoughts: Pretty mad I slacked on getting this for months because I wasn't sure how well it would work. Buy this now if you're hatin on your wifi signal across the house.READ FULL REVIEW
