OCZ TRION 150 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: It seems like it could be a great drive being almost 1 terabyte in SSD memory.

Cons: I could not get this drive to be seen by my Windows 10 desktop which is, unfortunately, all I have to test on. It isn't a hardware thing because I could see the drive in the BIOS but I could not get Windows to see it. It didn't show up in the partition config, file explorer, hardware manager, etc.

Price is a little concerning too being so low for so much space. That usually implies the reliability of SSD's but since I couldn't test that, it didn't influence my rating.

Corsair Gaming SCIMITAR RGB MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Better than expected 04/08/2016

This review is from: Corsair Gaming SCIMITAR RGB MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse

Pros: I’m a FPS player so I prefer less buttons. When I got this mouse to review, my expectations were pretty low since I never thought Corsair as a peripherals company. I thought the mouse looked cool but expected it to be just another review item. However, when I tried it out, I was very impressed. It looks awesome, has cool lights, is very comfortable to use, moves smoothly, and seems like it’s built well.

-Good flexible cord
-Good feeling scroll wheel
-Very customizable

Cons: Even though I was impressed with this mouse, I personally don’t like having so many buttons. I prefer 3 thumb buttons at most. Personal preference though and if you are looking at this mouse, you obviously like 12 thumb buttons.

The sliding thumb button pad seems pretty unnecessary. It only changes the position by like ¼”. I can’t imagine anyone would be devastated if it was in a fixed position. But I’m not taking an egg off for an extra feature.

Last con is that the mouse wheel doesn’t have horizontal movement (scroll left and right). I use that to quickly switch weapons in games.

Other Thoughts: I did not have high expectations of this mouse but it extremely impressed me. I like mice with less buttons but if you are a big MMO player, I can see this being a worthy mouse option. Also, right before I'm submitting my review, I noticed a lot of people are having performance problems (nothing I ran into though).

TRENDnet TEW-805UB AC1200 Dual Band Wireless USB Adapter
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

2 out of 5 eggs Nothing Special 03/09/2016

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-805UB AC1200 Dual Band Wireless USB Adapter

Pros: It works. I’m not exactly sure how positive this it, it just does what it is expected to. I do like the form factor though. A small USB stick is easy to give to someone who wants wireless capabilities on their desktop. I still prefer the dedicated card though.

Cons: -No place for cap when you remove it
-Requires disk to install (drivers do not automatically install on Win 10)
-Price compared to alternatives

This does not easily work with the build in Windows wireless network selector. You have to use the supplied software. The software itself also has some oddities. One thing I found weird is when entering the key for WiFi, you have to confirm the key. Usually it only asks for the key once and tells you if you entered it wrong. I know that’s a small thing to complain about but it gives a sense of all the small problems with the interface. Besides signal strength and a couple stats, the software really doesn’t do any more than act as another required program on your computer.

Other Thoughts: It's designed to be convenient and easy but without plug and play functionality, it does not quite fill it's roll
