Linksys WRT1900ACS Wireless AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router, Open Source ready, eSATA / USB 3.0 Ports
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Feature rich.
Reliable, be sure to update the firmware!
Custom firmware (OpenWRT, etc.) support? Yes!
Excellent range.
USB and eSATA available (eSATA works as an additional USB port as well)
Respectable price, similar to other products.
The phone app worked well and was pretty useful, not necessary, but I can see myself using it more.
Set up was quick and simple
The UI and current firmware is simple enough with good options and isn't a headache to use.
Made with custom firmware in mind, so you shouldn't have issues with install if the stock firmware isn't for you!

Cons: I don't have any cons to dock an egg for, however I will state a few things.
This product is pretty large and hefty. You could mount to a wall thanks to the design if you don't have the desk or shelf space to house it. WPS and power switch are on the back side in between your ports and antenna, they would be much easier to press if placed on the front. If you have large hands, it could be a hassle to press, especially on a shelf where you can't easily see the rear.

Other Thoughts: The unboxing was actually pretty nice. Most of the time you open and its just a router surrounded by a cardboard shell with the extras in a spot next to it in the shell. There was a nice top and bottom layer of foam with spacing to set the router and antenna in and keep it from shifting during shipping. It's not anything spectacular, but it stood out a bit more in my memory while being greeted by a large beast of a router. I'd recommend this router to anyone looking in this price range.

5 out of 5 eggs CH-9000022-NA 04/13/2016

This review is from: Corsair Gaming M65 RGB Laser Gaming Mouse - White

Pros: Very stylish mouse with a range of lighting options.
The build quality is higher than any other mouse I've used in the past.
Programmable buttons and a range of features in software.
The mouse wheel is very distinct, it flows well, and has a very solid feedback to every step that keeps you from rolling too far.
I feel each button requires the right amount of force to act, with a decent amount of feedback.
Braided cable.

Cons: Although I am a fan of the design of this mouse, it doesn't make it very comfortable for my style of holding the mouse. The rear portion of the mouse where the logo is sticks out a fair bit and doesn't rest well due to the corners on it. I was able to comfortably reach all the buttons with my natural grip, however changing my grip to accommodate the rear protruding piece would result in making the sniper button too far too reach for me personally. I think I can ultimately get used to it, however it will take more time.
The braided cable could result in bunching or snagging on my keyboard tray until the cable straightens out. I wouldn't dock an egg for this as it's ultimately a preference choice.
Something else of note, but is up to preference is the glossy white finish. For those who tend to get sweaty or clammy hands during play, this is a bit of a con. Personally I prefer a matte or soft touch surface which I feel helps with this problem, however aesthetically the gloss finish looks much nicer to me.

Other Thoughts: I received a CH-9000110-NA White RGB M65 Corsair mouse, however the item was written in as a Black CH-9000022-NA. Not an issue, however it did give me some trouble finding where I should place my review initially. In the past video and image would be allowed in an review, so I would be happy to post some if requested to verify the item received.

This is certainly the best mouse I've had the pleasure of using, however some minor changes would make it perfect for me. The black model would have addressed my minor problems, with the exception of the grip. If the matte finish is more your thing, I'd expect the black model to be the better choice for you. If however the gloss is not a problem, this one should be right for you!

ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Good looking router without drawing too much attention.
LEDs aren't too bright, they can be turned off as well. Great if you have this placed in a bedroom or living room.
2.0 and 3.0 USB ports for network storage and other features.
Speeds on all bands are up to par with no connection or restart issues.
All standard features are present. I've tried virtually all of them and haven't had any issues or problems.
You can install DD-WRT.
Designed well, solid build quality, stays nice a cool with 24/7 uptime so far.
Grip is solid, even though it is an upright router, it doesn't feel at risk of tipping.

Cons: Software isn't the greatest, but it will do what you need it to if you take the time to work with it.
The range is ok, it worked for my needs, but it could be a bit better for the price and considering it has external antennas. Not much of a con, but it can be a buying reason for some that were expecting excellent range. I will say the the speeds don't diminish much as you border on it's maximum range and the connection is stable until you go beyond that point.

Other Thoughts: There are a lot of features with this product. I wouldn't say this is an average consumer router considering the price, but if you want a fully featured router, this will get you what you need.
I found the software to be usable, but it has a few hiccups and could use a bit of work. Thankfully this can be remedied with updates or a custom firmware. Seeing how this isn't an average consumer router, I expect many who would purchase would have DD-WRT in mind regardless.
I can't really call this a con, just something you would need to be aware of when buying, you can't really lay it down comfortably. The stand upright is functional and works well, so it's just a minor thing to be aware of when you consider where you will be placing in your home.
I would recommend this for anyone looking for a fully featured, reliable router, with good connection speeds.
