DEEPCOOL N8 ULTRA BLACK Laptop Cooling Pad 17
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Quiet
-Large fans
-Adjustable air flow
-3 out USB ports
-Quality build
-Fairly comfortable on lap (if your legs are under the feet)

Cons: If this is sitting on a flat surface, the intake towards the bottom of the fans is blocked. Therefore, only the top of the laptop (towards the monitor hinge) will get cooled. There is not a whole lot of airflow towards the bottom.

It's a little heavy compared to all plastic laptop coolers.

Sharp corners that I scratched myself on.

Other Thoughts: I like this cooler, however for $30 I feel there are better ones. I like the controls of this and it feels nice but like I said, it has sharp corners and the bottoms of the fans can get covered pretty easily.

CORSAIR Flash Voyager 64GB Slider X1 USB Flash Drive Model CMFSL3X1-64GB
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Cheap but fairly good 05/13/2015

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager 64GB Slider X1 USB Flash Drive Model CMFSL3X1-64GB

Pros: The first pro I noticed was the 5 year warranty on the package. Not sure if this is standard or not, but it's nice to have on flash drives.

This is a smaller flash drive which is nice. Also, I found that this does not run too hot even under a high load.

List:
-Very small
-Doesn't run hot
-Cheap

Cons: No read/write indicator light. And even more importantly, the read/write speeds aren't very good.

USB 3.0
HD Tune: Corsair Voyager SliderX1 Benchmark
Transfer Rate Minimum : 54.1 MB/sec
Transfer Rate Maximum : 85.6 MB/sec
Transfer Rate Average : 81.0 MB/sec
Access Time : 0.6 ms
Burst Rate : 32.2 MB/sec

Other Thoughts: This is a pretty good flash drive for the price. It doesn't have very good speeds but is does not cost much for the memory and reliability of Corsair (from past experience)

Linksys E8350 AC2400 4X4 Dual-Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router, Optimal for HD Video Streaming and Lag-Free Gaming
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The main pro is the wireless strength. It isn't anything extraordinary but it is on the more powerful side of routers.

External program comes with speed test... kind of nice

Cons: Is it working? Oh, the indicator lights are all hidden in the back. That would make sense for standard users who don't care about high tech stuff, but someone buying this expensive of a router is going to want a bit more of a utilitarian setup.

I like to review routers based on their user interface because that can make a huge difference. In this case, the router's initial interface is through an external program that comes on the included CD (couldn't get to web interface right away). Ok... don't see that too often... probably is pretty well laid out at least. Nope, it is very confusion. Took me a while to even figure out how to set up the SSID and password. Turns out the external program basically just routes you to the normal web interface. I guess that's why they call it a router (haha... ha). The same outdated web interface that Linksys has been using for years.

Other cons are all the features missing. There are a lot of reviews that already list them so I won't go into that.

Other Thoughts: I still have several of the Linksys WRT54G routers and love them. Those were built so stably that they made me into a Linksys fan. However, after seeing this router, it just doesn't seem like Linksys is still keeping up with the latest technology.
