Corsair Gaming H2100 Wireless Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset - Greyhawk
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Excellent sound quality
Excellent recording quality
Wireless
Rechargeable
Earpiece mounted volume control
Good range

Cons: Heavy
Unwieldy microphone
Short USB charging cable (for charging while in-use)

Other Thoughts: It really took a lot of time for me to adjust to this headset. I've been using a set of Sennheiser stereo headphones (corded) with a desktop microphone and these are just so much bigger and heavier. I found my neck hurting after an hour or so of wearing these. It took a week or so to adjust to the added bulk and get them adjusted to fit just right.

I do wish the microphone had some more adjustment to it for storage purposes, but I can't knock it for sound quality.

The sound quality was very good. I tried testing the surround with some games and I do hear a difference, but no night and day difference from stereo for me.

One feature that I quickly grew fond of is the earpiece mounted volume control. This beats the pants off of adjusting volume in-game or alt-tabbing to the desktop to adjust volume or other tricks.

Battery life is good. I didn't use them enough to get a good average, but I never went less than 6 hours between charges. You can charge these while in-use, however, the charging cable supplied is on the short side for this.

A USB extension cable is included to mount the transceiver away from the PC, however, I did not use it.

Range is good, however, that is going to depend on the environment in which the product is used. Using the extension cable for the transceiver should help with range if there is an issue.

The overall build quality is impressive. I do feel that this is a quality product. The joint between the head band and the ear pieces seems to be a compressed o-ring to prevent unwanted movement and I have concerns about the o-ring wearing out. I don't foresee any other longevity issues other than normal wear.

SAMSUNG 1TB USB 3.0 Portable SSD T1
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs 04/13/2015

This review is from: SAMSUNG 1TB USB 3.0 Portable SSD T1

Pros: Extremely fast
Very small
Light
Seems to be well built
Strong AES 256 encryption

Cons: Short USB cable
Sticker shock

Other Thoughts: In order to use the drive, you have to run the setup utility included on a small startup partition. You can name

the drive and set a password for encryption or choose to not encrypt the drive.

The included USB cable is short, but seems to be pretty tough.

The drive itself is about the size of a credit card, but 5 or 6 cards deep.

Wow this thing is fast. It's almost as fast as my internal SSD and with the capacity seems great for backups or

video use. The limiting factor on it's speed seems to be the USB 3.0 interface, but if you need a USB drive,

this is one to have!

I had some solid performance over USB 2.0 as well, however if you don't have USB 3.0, this drive would be a

waste of money in my opinion.

Enabling encryption can really hurt performance depending on usage, so if speed is a top concern leave the

encryption off.

The drive also gets warm to the touch. I hope this won't affect longevity.

TP-LINK Archer C5 AC1200 Dual Band Wireless AC Gigabit Router, 2.4GHz 300Mbps+5Ghz 867Mbps, 2 USB Ports, IPv6, Guest Network
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Affordable 802.11ac router
Solid performance
Good range
Wall mountable
Print/FTP/DLNA server capability
Dual USB ports
Gigabit WAN and LAN ports

Cons: Bulky power adapter
No beamforming
No external 2.4 GHz antennas
USB 2.0 only

Other Thoughts: The configuration of this router is similar to my Archer C7. The hardware is also nearly identical. This router is a very solid performer, especially at it's price point.

The power adapter is very big and may overhang outlets depending on your setup.

This router stacks up well against similar routers and should be more than adequate for all but the most intense use.

I didn't really gain any extra range with this router vs several others. I would recommend a router that has beamforming capability if range is a concern.

There are a lot of options available for advanced users and the router is virtually configuration free. This is a nice product priced right.
