TP-LINK TL-SG1016DE 16-Port Gigabit Easy Smart Switch , 16 10/100/1000 Mbps RJ45 Ports, MTU/Port/Tag-Based VLAN, QoS and IGMP
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: 16 Ports
Metal Frame
Included Mount Brackets
Large Bandwidth

Cons: Power and Ethernet Jacks on Opposite Sides of Device

Other Thoughts: I used the TP-LINK TL-SG1016DE 16-Port Gigabit Easy Smart Switch to replace a basic “not smart” 8 port GBE switch which peaked out its throughput around 101MB/s (808Mbps). By default, DHCP was disabled on the TP-LINK TL-SG1016DE 16-Port Gigabit Easy Smart Switch which conflicted with the default IP of my router ( After enabling DHCP, the switch would take an IP that the router had already assigned to another device on my network. The devices connected to the switch still operated normally in this configuration, but I was unable to access the switch GUI. To resolve this, I assigned the switch MAC to an unused IP from the router, then disabled DHCP on the switch and assigned it the same IP I previously assigned from the router. The switch has some interesting monitoring, QoS, and VLAN settings but I only configured QoS.

As I am using this switch to replace a lower quality one, I would expect it to perform better. With 6 computers connected with Cat6 and GGE transferring data simultaneously, my tests averaged 167.1MB/s (1336Mbps) throughput, which I assume is a limit of the lower end computers used in the network test. During my tests, the metal enclosure reached temperatures of 91.3°F (32.9°C), which is much lower than inexpensive plastic switches I have used.

Silicon Power 64GB Elite microSDXC UHS-I/U1 Class 10 Memory Card with Adapter, Speed Up to 85MB/s (SP064GBSTXBU1V20NE)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: microSD to SD Adapter Included
UHS-I/U1 Class 10

Cons: Low Average Transfer Speeds

Other Thoughts: The Silicon Power 64GB Elite microSDXC UHS-I/U1 Class 10 Memory Card is unpacked in seconds from a basic plastic cover wrapped in cardboard. Once opened, the card worked without any formatting when inserted into my Sony 18MPixel Point and Shoot camera. When using automatic settings on the camera, there was a delay of 1-2 seconds between pictures when writing to the Silicon Power Memory Card. This delay was the same I experienced with the previous UHS-I/U1 Class 10 SDHC card used in the camera. I then put the Silicon Power Memory Card into a microSD to USB adapter to copy the pictures off the card. However, multiple computers displayed the Silicon Power Memory Card as unformatted. I formatted the card, which resulted in about 26G of formatted space. As this was not correct, I then placed the Silicon Power Memory Card in the included microSD to SD adapter and inserted it into my laptop. After formatting the card again with my Laptop’s SD card slot, the card correctly reported about 58G. I believe this was a result of the first microSD to USB adapter I used not supporting the SDXC standard. Using my Laptop’s SD card slot, I was able to only write to the card at a peak of 17.1MB/s and read peaked at 175Mb/s, but averaged much lower at 21.4MB/s.

ASUS PCE-N53 Dual-Band Wireless-N600 Adapter IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express Up to 300Mbps downlink+300Mbps uplink Wireless Data Rates (Asus Certified)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: WPS button

Cons: Cannot find 5Ghz Networks without Asus Driver
Driver is 221.11MB from Asus Website
Slower than Expected Speeds

Other Thoughts: The ASUS PCE-N53 Dual-Band Wireless-N600 Adapter has a low profile design with not heat sinks. When copying several Gigabytes the fastest speed achieved was 10.4MB/s (83.2Mbps) when copying from the ASUS PCE-N53 to another computer using a AC1200 wireless adapter.
