Linksys RE4100W-4A Wireless N600 Pro Wi-Fi Dual Band Range Extender with Built-In Audio Speaker
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: + Works with all routers
+ Extends both bands
+ Compact somewhat stylish unit
+ 3.5mm audio jack for remote music playback

Cons: Setup instructions a bit ambiguous

Other Thoughts: I read the reviews on here and other sites about this extender. I did so because I thought the setup instructions were a bit lacking.I was looking for setup advice. I did not look for the Spot Finder technology as I figured it just as important to find a useable outlet. My router is on the basement floor and the house has three floors, hence I plugged it into an outlet on the ground floor. After about 2 - 3 minutes of a blinking LED, the light came on solid as predicted. I went to my laptop and did a scan for the Linksys Network. I did not see anything other than several neighbors routers listed. I did a refresh and nothing. So I opened a browser and typed in http://extenderlinksys.com. The extender GUI came up and I was prompted to scan for networks. The extender found both my 2.4 and 5 Ghz bands and prompted which to connect to, I chose both and was asked for my passcode. After that it was all uphill. The extender did its thing and presto success. I previously checked a few items on the network for signal strength. My sons computer, PS4, a smart blu ray player and my phone. The phone and the blu ray player both increased signal strength considerably, and that is on the 5 Ghz band. The blu ray player on the second floor, went from a 85% signal strength to 100% on the 5 Ghz band. My sons PS4 and computer made very little difference with both on the 2.4 Ghz band. My house (2300 sq. ft) had very few dead spots due to excellent coverage by my TP Link router. The signal strength has improved though even still and I can even pick up a signal outside in the yard and on the porch. I like this range extender as it does what it is supposed to do, once setup. I debated about subtracting one egg for the setup instructions, but decided that maybe it was just me. After all, I did "Get er Done" in the end. If you have dead spots in your home network, then the Linksys RE4100W may be just the answer you are looking for.

TP-LINK Archer T9E AC1900 Wireless Dual Band PCI Express Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11n, IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11b PCI Express
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: + Dual Bands
+ Fast Speeds for the Gamers out there!
+ Dependable - No drops
+ Lag Free
+ Easy Installation

Cons: - A bit pricey if you aren't in "The Need for Speed"

Other Thoughts: I installed this in my son's PC running Windows 7 Home. The installation was relatively easy but I can see where it could be a problem on some gaming rigs. I suggest opening your case and surveying the layout thoroughly before ordering this card. You may find your video card(s) interfere with the slot or this card may cramp your video card's fan. I'm just putting that out there. I did not have the problem but I can see where it may be a problem. That being said, the install went flawless. They include a low profile back plate for those who may need it. I inserted the disk and installed the Driver and Utility without problem. The utility opened and found my router instantly. The utility is laid out nicely and very easy to use. I was connected in minutes and have not experienced any drops since. It works well using the Windows utility too, but I prefer the TP-Link program. This adapter is so much faster than the USB devices I have used previously. My son games on his rig everyday and just loves the adapter and the added speed. I have had the pleasure of testing several TP-Link devices. From my experience with their products, it seems like an excellent brand, well thought out, and reliable. There are other options out there if you are not interested in dual band or speed. However if you are looking for a speedy adapter, please consider the Archer T9E. For the Gamers out there, I firmly believe you will be satisfied with the T9E.

CORSAIR 128GB Flash Voyager GTX USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVYGTX3B-128GB
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Very Fast, Very Large Portable Drive 05/07/2015

This review is from: CORSAIR 128GB Flash Voyager GTX USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model 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.
