This review is from: Linksys E1550 Wireless-N Router with SpeedBoost IEEE 802.11b/g/n
Pros: Cheap (got it on sale for $30)
Cons: Does NOT support USB printers, contrary to the details. Wired and wireless performance is much less than I expected. I have a 100Mbps connection, which drops down to around 80Mbps on a wired desktop and 66Mbps on the built in speed test. Wireless devices don't get more than 20Mbps, with the device less than 3 feet away.
Other Thoughts: I am sorely disappointed in this router. I was upgrading from a WRT54-G v1.1, and I can hardly notice the difference. The only improvement is the reduced hit on wired speed. The WRT54-G dropped wired ethernet speed down to 30Mbps.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech G930 USB Connector Circumaural Wireless Gaming Headset
Pros: -Wireless. It's one of those things you don't realize how nice it is until you can get up and walk away from your desk with the music still playing or still carrying on a conversation on Mumble or Vent.
-Good Mic, muting when flipped up is a really nice feature.
-G-Keys and volume roller are great for media controls, and work with iTunes and Spotify out of the box.
-Good sound quality (most of the time)
-Great battery life
Cons: The devil's in the details here.
-Wireless is unreliable. Cuts out, static, disconnects/reconnects, distortion.
-Surround sound is unimpressive, and difficult to get working correctly. When playing BF3 and Far Cry 3 I would hear gunshots only in my right ear, which was distracting to say the least. Turns out this is fixed in the control panel by configuring the headset's surround to only have two speakers. I'm not an audiophile, but isn't two speakers... you know... stereo?
-Uncomfortable. The cups fit around my (very large) ears, but are so shallow my ears press against the hard plastic inside, which makes them sore after a while.
-The headset also does a very poor job of staying on my head. If I lean back in my chair, they will fall off. I can easily dislodge them just by moving my head around. I constantly have to re-position them.
-All joints are very loose. I handed them to a friend who remarked that it felt like it was made of spaghetti. The band is very flexible, but it doesn't inspire confidence in the durability of this headset.
Other Thoughts: My previous setup was a pair of Sennheiser HD 380 pros with a cheap clip-on mic. The two cords and the weight of the coiled Sennheiser cord just got too annoying which is why I bought this. I'm spoiled by the 380's, they are hands down the most comfortable headset I've tried. While I'm very critical of the G930's comfort factor, it is worlds better than every single on ear headset I've tried and many over the hear sets too.
Sennheiser has spoiled me on comfort and sound quality, so take what I say with a few grains of salt.
The G930 is about convenience, above all else.
Pros: Fast, hopefully reliable
I'm usually first on a server, and games stored on it load ridiculously quick
Cons: Doesn't reach advertised speeds
Seems to be getting slower, even after little more than a month
You won't be able to keep many games on it
Other Thoughts: I have this and the 256GB version as well, and was happier with the 256 than this one. It was just a little faster and didn't get as cramped as quickly. I didn't have the money for another 256 though, so this worked well enough.READ FULL REVIEW
