NETGEAR EX2700 N300 WiFi Range Extender Essentials Edition

5 out of 5 eggs A Strong Extender 10/02/2014

This review is from: NETGEAR EX2700 N300 WiFi Range Extender Essentials Edition

Pros: This unit is a very simple install. Instructions are straightforward and informative. It has an easy setup using WPS or browser. Device has a surprisingly small footprint. Indicator LEDs signal at what level the extender is connected to the original AP taking out the guesswork. Device looks nice and is also small enough to hide out-of-sight. It offers a wired port to extend the connection of a non-wifi enabled device. Signal is very strong from this device.

Cons: Not a wired device, so you can’t leave the original AP’s coverage area. You’ll need an extension cord if you don’t want to use the device sitting directly in a socket. Sticker that closed the bag in the box was broken when device arrived; device was still in pristine condition with protective film still on it. I noticed a network slowdown when I cast local videos using the NE2700 (I couldn’t even cast them using the old AP) but otherwise it performed flawlessly.

Other Thoughts: I expected the NE2700 to perform at slightly less speeds than my older wired N AP as this device is only a repeater, but it actually provided better performance (placement for strong source signal mattered). I saw 9.85Mbps down/32MS ping on my old wired AP, whereas I saw 14.83Mbps/25MS ping on the EX2700. It performed so well that I advised one of my less tech-savvy friends to get their own unit to extend the wireless range to their basement gaming room. Before their basement was essentially a wireless dead zone but now they have great signal! It made me look like a hero and I got better wireless coverage for my home.

TRENDnet TV-IP551WI 640 x 480 MAX Resolution RJ45 Wireless N Day/Night Internet Camera

5 out of 5 eggs Nothing special, but it'll do 08/28/2014

This review is from: TRENDnet TV-IP551WI 640 x 480 MAX Resolution RJ45 Wireless N Day/Night Internet Camera

Pros: Decent picture indoors (controlled lighting) after focusing. One way audio is great for watching and listening to the kids while they're playing and you're computing. Good small room IR illumination. Cheap internal monitoring solution.

Cons: It's a cheap webcam, bad with the good. Trendnet's reputably bad device security - another webcam that won't leave the internal network. I do this out of caution, the new firmwares may be more secure.

Other Thoughts: Cheap webcam. Nothing special. Does it's job - as long as you focus the device.

SteelSeries Sensei 62150 Grey 8 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 11400 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This mouse is good looking and feature packed. It’s comfortable for long periods of use and offers a good feeling even with fairly large hands. Seems base-heavy, which really provides a premium feel. Its top buttons, wheel, and left buttons are easily accessed. Ambidextrous, if that's your thing. The Sensei has highly customizable software that allows access to all of the Sensei’s power. It offers the ability to create up to five separate game profiles. You can assign buttons to macros, change sensor settings, and set the color of the three lighted areas, independently, to any one of 16.8 million colors. Any of the lights can also be disabled if you would prefer. There is a little LCD panel on the bottom which displays a custom grayscale bitmap that is 128x32. And it is fast!

Cons: I’m not sure if I’m just not comfortable with the right side buttons, but they just don’t seem to be easily accessible without having to move my hand to reach them. The settings in the software seem to be lost if you do things not the way they were intended. The LCD panel being on the bottom is sort of gimmicky as most of the time you won't be looking at it while gaming, although you can change the settings from it.

Other Thoughts: The Sensei fits well in my hand and offers lots of power and flexibility, which may extend to a bit of an edge in gaming. The Sensei worked on Windows 7 & 8 (using software from the website) and MacOSX 10.6 (software also from website, required two reboots). I received no response from it on my Ubuntu 12.04 Linux box.
