NETGEAR R7800 Nighthawk X4S AC2600 Smart WiFi MU-MIMO Gigabit Router
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Faster than my wired connection...
Easy setup.
Serious range.
Deep feature set.
Works great with separate NAS.
Works great as a NAS hub just by plugging in a USB 3.0 drive!

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: Netgear always comes through. This router is the fastest, most stable, and most versatile I have ever seen. I expected a lot from something with the name Nighthawk, but they over-delivered on this one! Between the easy user interface and the plug and play USB ports it's hard to choose the best feature. Security seems to be right up there too so there's that necessity covered. It makes the full broadband available everywhere on my admittedly small property. Walls? No problem. Brick walls? No problem. Four walls? No problem. File transfers were literally as fast (or faster?) than the wired port going into this router... {They wouldn't sabotage their own NIC just to improve their wi-fi scores, would they? Probably not...} It's pretty pricey but worth it if you want the best.

Silicon Power 32GB Elite microSDHC UHS-I/U1 Class 10 Memory Card with Adapter, Speed Up to 85MB/s (SP032GBSTHBU1V20NE)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Writes from SSD over SATA3 on my MB at about 40 MBps. It did record full 1080p @ 60 fps in my Yuneeq Q500 drone just like several other cards, but it transferred the files to PC at around the 40 MBps.

Cons: This was nowhere near the claim of 85 MBps for PC transfers using USB 3.0. 7200 rpm HDD transfers were capped at 20MBps every time. Multiple drives @ 7200 and 5400 connected to the MB via SATA showed consistent slowdown based on the quality of the source drive. Not sure how they got the 85 MBps number but the card is very good as a capture media, and it's cheap as dirt.

Other Thoughts: System:
MB: ASUS Z87 Pro
CPU: Core i5 4670k @ 3.4 ghz (I know, didn't have time before review to OC to my chip's limit of 4.2)
Mem: 8GB G-Skill Sniper @ 1866
SSD: Sandisk II Extreme SSD
OS: Windows 10 Home
Spare HDDs: 7200 Seagate Barracudas, 5400 WD NAS

Corsair Gaming K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE Mechanical Keyboard, Backlit RGB LED, Cherry MX Speed RGB
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Ultra-fast key recognition! Excecelant keyboard font!! USB 3.o passthrough. Awesome sleeved cables. Nice knurling on the space bar. 05/22/2016

This review is from: Corsair Gaming K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE Mechanical Keyboard, Backlit RGB LED, Cherry MX Speed RGB

Pros: Since the kyes register at near the top of the stroke errors do occur. CUE still stinks.

Cons: Touchy. Gray gamer keys are ugly. Doesn't spell check as I typpee...

Other Thoughts: Compared to the K70 RGB with Cherry REd, this keyboard is better in almost every way -except the keys, ironically. Especially in normal typing the rapid fire keys while feeilng great definitely allow for (and often cause) many typos... After placing two O-Rings on each key the feel an mis-types improved greatly. I'd recommend this keyboard for any gamer but for every day usage I'd go with any of the other K70 models since this one forces you to bu very precise when typing.
