This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Brown Switches
Switch color conforms to standard Cherry color code
Switch post identical to Cherry MX's so keycaps for Cherry MX switches are compatible with these Kailh ones too
Feels identical to my Cherry MX Brown boards
Context menu button (right click button that gets axed all too often on other boards)
Windows key lock toggle switch
Cons: No braided cord
No USB hub
Other Thoughts: Both the cons are completely negated by the price difference between this board and it's Cherry MX based competitors. For this much less money it's entirely expected to be shorted a few features on the more expensive boards
I've had this board for over 4 months now and it is still every bit as good as the other 2 Cherry MX boards I have. I replaced a few of the keycaps on it with a few promotional ones handed out at QuakeCon this year and they of course fit just as if the switches were Cherry MX (as the posts are identical).
I'm glad TT has decided to offer a less expensive alternative in the mechanical keyboard market as with the (deserved) dominance of Cherry MX switches, it has been sorely lacking.
This review is from: Gray Tee Shirt
Pros: Lasts forever (still wear it to this day, though sadly the logo is is half faded now)
Proudly displays my 10 year relationship with my favorite online tech store
Generally keeps people from engaging in long conversations with me
Cons: My wife rolls her eyes that I've kept a piece of clothing this long every time I put it on and or when I won't let her throw it outREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
Pros: Gigabit switch, 802.11n, looks nice, ample configuration options, good wifi range
Cons: Slow/sporadic wifi throughput: I frequently could not stream SD (sub 800kbps bitrate) video to a wired device from a wireless device regardless of the wireless adapter used (tried 3 different ones). 802.11n should be AMPLE for SD video streaming internally. This was the case regardless of the settings I used.
QOS is just an on/off checkbox. This is the one area where the configuration options were skimped on, I felt, and it is very unfortunate.
This unit always took an amazingly long time to pull an external IP address. I've had much cheaper routers that could do it in under a minute. This unit consistently took 5 minutes or more, which made troubleshooting/configuring take forever.
Yesterday, the unit decided it just plain wasn't going to even try pulling an external IP address anymore, rendering it useless as a router and me without internet access in my home unless I physically connected my laptop or desktop to the cable modem (ie - the connection was fine from the modem directly to a wired device, but not if the router was connected between them).
Other Thoughts: I'm very disappointed with this router as I put up with all the noted "Cons" (and more) for the better part of 2 years and then it decided it didn't want to be anything more than a switch now. I don't think I'll be trying another D-Link router for some time, if ever.READ FULL REVIEW
