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

4 out of 5 eggs Works nice, but lights rely on always-running software 05/31/2016

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

Pros: - Feels sturdy
- USB Passthrough
- Individual key backlight control (with CUE)

Cons: - Dynamic lighting requires always-running software in the background
- This keyboard (along with most other Corsair USB hardware) requires a USB Quirk for ideal functionality under GNU/Linux

Other Thoughts: - Dynamic lighting requires the CUE software to be running in the background. On GNU/Linux, ckb is the alternative to CUE, but currently does not support this keyboard
- You can use a Windows machine (and apparently a virtualized Windows machine and pass the keyboard to it) to change the static light profile of the keyboard and have it work across any computer regardless of CUE/ckb running or not
- When the keyboard was first powered on, I saw a rainbow light demonstration. The keyboard, and the hardware it uses is clearly capable of being able to hold at least one dynamic light profile and use it without relying on the OS, but currently this isn't the case
- Under GNU/Linux, the kernel command line parameter (usbhid.quirks=0x1B1C:0x1B38:0x20000408) is required (as of kernel 4.5.4) in order to prevent the keyboard activation delay during boot
- With a GIGABYTE GA-990FX-Gaming motherboard and GNU/Linux, IOMMU is required to be enabled in both the firmware and the OS for the keyboard to be used with USB 3.0 ports
- Switches have a stronger feel to them compared to MX Browns

TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 500Mbps
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Works ok, but not 500Mbps 04/28/2016

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 500Mbps

Pros: They're small and work well.

Cons: The advertised speed is 500Mbps, but the port negotiation speed is only 100Mbps at the most.

Other Thoughts: I currently use the adapter kit to provide internet to one of my Raspberry Pis being used as a smart table. This allows me to eliminate an Ethernet cord leaving the table. Speeds and stability are as-expected (no connection or packet loss).
