This review is from: CORSAIR 128GB Flash Voyager GTX USB 3.0 Flash DriveModel CMFVYGTX3B-128GB
Pros: + 128 Gb of portable storage
+ Solid Construction - Aluminum Alloy metal construction
+ SSD controller - not your typical flash drive
+ Very fast file transfers
+ Cap fits nice and snug
+ Corsair 5 year warranty
Cons: - Size: 3" x 1" may cause problem
- Hefty Price
- Weight - much heavier than a normal flash drive
Other Thoughts: I ran several tests on the Voyager and while I could go into details but nothing that has not been already posted here. In a nutshell, I found the drive to be substantially faster than my normal USB 3.0 drives. It would cut write times on large video files more than half. I could easily play movies from the flash drive without stuttering. This is not your ordinary 32/64 Gb flash drive. This is a 128 Gb SSD made in the shape of a flash drive. Manufactured inside an aluminum housing this drive has a bit of weight to it. Not so much as to be a problem, but I would equate it to that of an old style lighter in your pocket. As others have mentioned, the size could be a problem depending on ones USB plug configuration. It was not a problem in my case. I believe this drive will appeal to a small niche of technophobes that have use for ultra quick file transfers and the larger storage size and don't mind the additional cost. When so many 128 Gb SSD's are on sale for less than $100 and typical flash drives always on sale, it is hard for me to justify the additional cost. While I really like the drive, I cannot justify the additional cost for my personal use and thus I subtracted one egg. If you are shopping for this type of drive, by all means give the Flash Voyager your consideration and decide for yourself.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: + Nice desktop design/layout
+ Power and Wi-Fi On/Off switches
+ Dual bands
+ Easy set up with or without mini cd
+ 2 USB ports
+ Decent signal range
+ Gigabit Ports
+ Price per performance per features
Cons: - Signal range not as strong as previous router (nit picking)
Other Thoughts: I found the GUI and the setup easy and painless. I believe any first time user could navigate through it without problem. I like the design layout as it fits perfectly on my desk and looks good too. We have 2 Xbones, 2 PS3's, 2 PS4's, 5 PCs, a laptop, and 3 phones that share our Wi-Fi. Our 2 sons are always playing games on one system or another. When not, we are streaming shows or movies. The WDR4300 router has been rock solid since installing it with no drops other than due to range limitations.
If I have to come up with a con, it would be that the range is not as great as my previous router a TP-Link Archer C7. The C7 has 3 internal and 3 external antennas and cost a bit more also. We live in a 2400 sq. ft. home with 3 floors. The router is located in the basement.
I was sent this router to review. As with other TP-Link products I have had the pleasure of reviewing this one is no exception. In my opinion TP-Link puts thought in designing a full featured product at each price point. As with many tech decisions (example gpu, cpu, mobo, ram)the decision as to which one to purchase is based on the consumers needs and wallet. I think for the average user, this router would prove to be an excellent choice based on its features and the price. It is certainly worth your consideration if shopping for a router.
Pros: + AC1750 Dual Concurrent Bands
+ Form Factor - I like the size and shape
+ 6 Antennas for max range
+ Gigabit speed
+ Power On/Off switch - better than pulling plug
+ Very nice GUI/menu
+ Guest Network
Cons: - Missing USB 3.0 Port found on C8 - Is additional $ worth it
Other Thoughts: I was sent this router to test out and review and I have it installed for 2 weeks now. I was very happy with my previous router, or so I thought. We have 2 PS4s, 2 PS3s, 2 Xbones, 5 PCs, a laptop, and 3 cell phones that share the Wi-Fi. I purchased a Samsung Note 4 when they first came out in October. I immediately noticed that it would constantly drop the Wi-Fi connection and reacquire it every few minutes. I tried talking with the CS and researching but found no help anywhere. This did not happen with my previous iPhone so I attributed it to the phone itself. Then when streaming movies through the PS3 I was having problems keeping the movie going. I blamed that on the cable provider. While I was playing Dragon's Age, I noticed that I was losing connection with the EA servers occasionally also. The first day I installed this router, the Note 4 kept the Wi-Fi connection all day long and has kept it ever since. I have streamed three movies since the install without a hiccup. Also I did not notice losing the connection to the server while playing Dragon's Age at all.
I have read through many of the reviews found here on Newegg. Many are thoroughly satisfied and some not so much. From my experience, this is my 5th router and so far it is the best one I have had the pleasure of using, My previous router was priced twice as much as this unit and as I found out faulty. I live in a 2400 square foot 2 story house with the router in the basement. I have found the signal strength to be higher with both the 5G and the 2.4Ghz bands throughout the house. I know of no dropped connections thus far. I found the user interface to be easy to navigate and the help easy to understand. I would indeed recommend the Archer C7 to anyone shopping for an economical AC1750 dual band router. I know I am satisfied with this one.
