Insten 1042722 Red / Black 3 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB Wired Optical 800 dpi Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Insten Red and Black 3 button Mouse 02/19/2014

This review is from: Insten 1042722 Red / Black 3 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB Wired Optical 800 dpi Mouse

Pros: Good weight, standard function and very good sensitivity. Looks sharp with setups with black or red color schemes.
Inexpensive. Does what you expect, reliably and with a USB connector.

Cons: Its not a $150 Gaming mouse with manipulable sensitivity and DPIs.

On the other hand, unless you need that, paying more than 20 times the price of this mouse makes little sense. :)

Other Thoughts: Yeah, had never heard of this mark and frankly would not have bothered trying it were it not that it was for kid #3's machine and a temporarily obnoxious mouse could be dealt with for a week if neccessary until a better one could be found.

No such need. This mouse performs as expected or better and is the equal of any 3 button non-gaming-specific mouse - and a good deal more reliable than the obnoxious Razer Death Adders we have had!

TP-LINK TL-R860 8-Port Cable/DSL Router 1 x 10/100Mbps WAN Ports 8 x 10/100Mbps LAN Ports

5 out of 5 eggs Yeah, the reviews are right! 10/02/2013

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-R860 8-Port Cable/DSL Router 1 x 10/100Mbps WAN Ports 8 x 10/100Mbps LAN Ports

Pros: Wow - this thing is reasonably priced. Of course you have to give up Gbyte capability, so, it is a bit dated in that respect.

Works striaght up out of the box (if you're a Comcast/Xfinity customer)

NO speed fall off that we could detect from straight-through in all sorts of repetitive trials.

Yep, this thing is SMALL, almost no footprint at all.

Can't understand people suggesting the manual or anything else were hard to understand. Maybe they've updated it, but it looked like any other router's documentation to me...

I know this seems strange to say, but the packaging was smart, tough, and very sturdy. This contrasts favorably with slicker, worthless packing often associated with other brands that allows the contents to be damaged.

The 24 hour delivery serivce, and as advertised (Fedex) - Newegg makes it so that driving into town almost makes no sense even when you are in a hurry. (Had no router for about 30 hours. Took a few to trouble shoot and try alternate router setups, then spent a little time looking at Newegg, hit the order button and 24 hours later, I am typing this review. Saved an hour and a half drive into the city and back, gas money, irritation at the ridiculous high price and lack of selection, and have a really good product (and better) for less, INCLUDING the overnight shippng. This was on sale for less than $30, and hard to complain about with its mfger 2 year warranty!

Cons: Doesn't have gbyte speed (this isn't a problem for MOST home users and a lot of small business users who would want a 8 port router.

Doesn't have wireless (you can just plug in a Wan, I am using another brand with no issues WAP54g).

Doesn't have vertical mounting hardware (but really I would say we are grasping for straws at this point :) )

Other Thoughts: The ONE thing you will want to do for configuring (if you have to at all for simple setups) is go in and change your default password and user name. Write them on the box flap somewhere and store in your closet.

You may also have some forwarding or fixed IPs you have to have for one thing or another, but most users are done when they change the password. As I have said, Xfinity/Comcast users should find it works straight out of the box (as apparently many other ISP users will too), If it isn't apparent that I love this for what it does and cost, let me let that secret out now. :) Sometimes glowing reviews are for a reason, and if you have sub 100Mbps speed (mine has never exceeded 75), this is a very good product that does what it says with a better than average warranty and better than average price.

Newegg did what THEY promised and TP-Link did what THEY promised. Good deal, good business practice. Thanks!

iBUYPOWER Gamer EXTREME 569D3 Desktop PC AMD FX-Series FX-6100(3.3GHz) 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 2GB Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Hello, I am a volunteer Tech Mod for a well known resource-hungry game series. This is just a point of information for AMD FX users regarding Directx, MS Windows and Steam. It is a generally known and documented fact that there are Bios updates that may be required to get certain programs including some Steam games to operate with the new AMD FX series CPUs. You can see AMD's official reference to this here:

http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/STEAMGamesonAMDFXplatforms.aspx

This is not the fault of the manufacturer of these systems, although they would be responsible for updating the Bios's in question or getting the motherboard mfg'rs to do so. Total War:Shogun 2 is a specific example of such a game that is highly likely NOT to function with an AMD FX processor without a bios update.

Microsoft has recently released patches for Windows and Directx to address some of the serious performace issues that FXs currently suffer from; a work still very much in progress.

Cons: none, I do not own this system, and provide the above information for the benefit of readers only.
