Pros: I compared the AV1000 to another version (with a higher speed and slightly different technology) the AV1200 Nano. The unit is pretty large but it does support two Ethernet connections.
The first thing I noticed is that the AV1000 is only using two plug connectors instead of all three. The AV1200 used the ground line as well to pass data.
When comparing the two models you can see that the AV1000 took a major performance hit once it used other lines that required the signal to get back to the breaker.

Internet connection is Verizon FIOS 75/75 Mbps.
Cons: I like the fact that the AV1000 has two Ethernet connections but the hit to performance just makes this feature nullified. If you have a few extra dollars to spend I highly recommend you go with the AV1200 line from TP-Link. The technology that uses the ground line makes a very big difference.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: OnHub AC1900 Wi-Fi Router from TP-LINK and Google
Pros: This has got to be one of the most interesting routers I have looked at in a long time. First, there is no browser setup interface (you have to use your phone or an android device). It does support Blue Tooth (wow never seen that before) and it does both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands.
Speed and Range it competed really well against a Linksys EA8500 and a Linksys WRT1900ACS. The only problem is I can’t tell you what the speeds are against the 2.4Ghz bands (look at con section).
This device is designed for people who are not tech savvy. The settings are very simple and everything is setup for you by google. Their default settings worked great and I did not have to change anything.
For tech savvy people the “If This Do This” abilities are a very nice addition. Even if you are not tech savvy but can follow simple instructions you can setup a lot of things in your home using this functionality. This is something completely knew to me and I have never seen anything like it on any other router. First thought I had with this feature is when my daughter comes home from school she sometimes forgets to call me to tell me she got home ok. With this device I can have it send me an email that she got home.
All of my tests were on Verizon FIOS internet connection at 75/75Mbps Download/Upload.
It supports 1 USB 3.0 port (However it is not colored blue as is standard with 3.0 ports).
Cons: Although I love the fact I really did not have to do anything to the router to get this running I am disappointed there is no “Advanced” menu options so I can tinker with the settings more.
Wi-Fi network name between 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands is exactly the same and you can’t tell the difference as OnHub determines which one you connect to.
No Media server (No FTP or VPN either), I have grown to love the media server for hosting all my family videos, pictures and music.
One LAN port, however you can just by a NetGear hub which will solve the problem.
Other Thoughts: This device is fantastic for people who have no knowledge of how routers work and want things simple and setup very well.
Setup was less than 5 minutes!
This review is from: Corsair Gaming SCIMITAR RGB MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse
Pros: First impression out of the box is wow. It feels great in the hand and the rubber support for the right fingers is perfect. Some of the other gaming mice provide the support but it feels slick as if your hand will slide off the mouse so the Rubber addition to the right side was very ingenious.
Comes with the standard 12 macro fast buttons on the left hand side. One nice feature with these buttons is that you can adjust them to your comfort level as the set moves forward or backwards. There is a special screw driver that comes with the mouse so you can move the buttons to your desired position.
Virtually all mice come with a wheel between the two main fingers. Normally the finger buttons engulf the wheel so you can only see the top portion of the wheel. Although this may look nice, overtime as the mouse gets dirty it makes it impossible to clean around the edges of the wheel and in the groves. For this mouse the wheel area is wide open making it very easy to keep it clean. As an added feature they put in some lights around it for show.
As with most gaming equipment that Corsair sells, the lights on the mouse are entirely configurable through the software.
Cons: Software must be downloaded and is not provided in the box.
If you have extremely large hands and your pinky finger tends to get numb if there is no support this is not the mouse for you. It is designed more for medium hands. The only mouse I have ever seen that provides good support for large hands are Mionix NAOS gaming mice. However, the draw back for that mouse is if you have medium to small hands it’s not really designed for you.
Other Thoughts: The mouse is sturdy overall and obviously not made cheaply.READ FULL REVIEW
