iRULU U8 Smart Watch Bluetooth Google Android and Apple iOS Compatible Music Play Photo Function Fitness and Sleep Tracker Black
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: *comfortable
*decent battery life
*screen protector

The watch was comfortable. What features i could get working worked fairly well. The battery lasts a full day with regular use. Comes with a pre-installed screen protector. The apps that don't rely upon the phone work well enough, though the buttons on some, such as the calculator, are so small they make the app pretty much useless.

Cons: *poor compatibility
*no developer supported app
*bubbles on screen protector

The included manual has basic bluetooth connection instructions, a web address and qr code that is supposed to take you to a place to download the app needed for all the apps to work, but they both lead you a dead link. I tried 10 of the apps that were available and none of them gave complete functionality. I could get the phone and music to work but not messages, camera, or anti lost. It came with a usb cable for charging the watch, but no power brick, While it does have a speaker phone, the speaker is extremely quiet and I usually end up using my phone's speaker. This wouldn't be much of a con except this makes my phone see the watch as a bluetooth headset and defaults to it for every call.

Other Thoughts: Most of the watch's short comings could be solved by a working app, but it appears the developers have given up on it. Without full functionality I feel as though this is just a new version of the classic calculator watch, technically useful, but you find yourself not really using it because the hassles outweighs the benefits.

Securifi Almond+ Long Range Touchscreen Wireless AC1750 Router / Range Extender + Home Automation Hub (3 Minute Setup)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: * The unit feels well made with a decent weight.
* It fits in your hands well, allowing you to hold it like a bulky tablet while you adjust settings.
* Simple setup, mine took just under 2 minutes.
* a stylus is included, with a molded in cavity that holds it secure so it wont fall out and be missing when you need it most.
* Can add sensors to smarten up your house.
* Wall and desk mount.
* Snaps on and off the wall mount so you can hold it comfortably while adjusting settings.
* Great wifi range.

Cons: I haven't really found much. The owners manual is pretty much non existent and just touches on how to get the setup process started. A couple of the apps included are highlighted as beta, and it would have been nice to see these as complete by the time it hit the shelves considering one of them is the clock. The other is weather. The screen is a little small, which isn't an issue until you get to the on screen keyboard, at which point i switched to the stylus.

Other Thoughts: I went into this with my thought process being, if it is a consumer product with a touch screen it should be simple and intuitive to use, so i decided to not even look at the manual until after setup or i hit a snag.

Right off the bat in setup they tell you there is a stylus in the top right corner. This Shows that it is a well thought out product. I gained about 30 feet in range over my previous router, and it now covers my property completely. Adding home automation to a router makes setting it up with your smart phones and tablets a little easier than stand alone units, and you'll have on less component to worry about. Over all I am more than satisfied with this product as the pros just completely over shadow the cons

CORSAIR RM850i 850W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Well I'll start off by saying that in the end it is a power supply, there isn't too much that can be said. That said there are some really nice and unique features to set this one apart. The cables are modular, well wrapped, and 98% of the wiring is black so any ends sticking out before the plug wont stick out like a sore thumb. They also come in a very nice bag that you can store the cables you don't use in it. Speaking of bags the power supply itself comes in a nice felt bag, for no apparent reason other than showing off how fancy it is.

I have spent a lot of time picking just the right coolers and case fans to make my computer as quiet as possible, and the power supply's zero rpm fan mode helps tremendously. Mine only seems to come on while under the load of gaming, and even then it is much quieter than my previous power supply, and barely audible while on.

The ability To select single or multiple rails helps system builders insure their components get a stable power supply from idle to full load. And the corsair link allows you to monitor your power usage, temperature, fan speed, and efficiency.

The capacitors are Japanese, which usually means better. Only time will tell however.

Cons: So far the only cons are pretty much petty issues. The corsair link requires one of your usb headers on your motherboard. It also does not come with an installation disk so you must download the software from their website. This keeps costs down and insures everyone gets the most recent version of the software when they get their power supply.
