Silicon Power 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model SP008GLSTU160N22NE
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: 8gb ddr3 1600mhz is fast enough
Low voltage
Ram posted at correct speed and was recognized by my HP laptop with no fuss

Cons: Packaging is that plastic stuff that's really hard to cut and almost always ends up in you getting cut and is not really a con but the only thing i didn't like about this product.

Other Thoughts: Many people buy ram that runs at high frequencies but really the only thing that matters is how much ram you have. Unless you are doing ramdisks or something that would lean on your ram speed, there is almost no difference in speeds for the average user. For a simple laptop upgrade to add some snappiness this will do more than fine.

Corsair Gaming K70 LUX RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Cherry MX RGB Red (CH-9101010-NA)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: This updated version of the k70 actually fixes almost everything that was wrong with the old one.

-Keycap puller + extra grippy keys for wasd and surrounding keys
-RGB lighting is a bit better
-Volume wheel is smooth as butter and super easy to move!
-USB passthrough!
-Updated font on the keys
-CUE software is less buggy and allows you to change all the colors and do profiles or anything you can imagine
-Removable wrist rest is still removable
-Onboard memory takes profiles with you

Cons: The only thing that they left out to change was the wrist rest. It's just too stiff, thankfully it's still removable and i can use my gel wrist rest in place of it.

Other Thoughts: I'm in love with this keyboard now that they have fixed the random quirks with it. The cue software can be really simple to use to set profiles change key colors etc but also allows you to go more in depth for key macros on any key you want.

Red keys are my new favorite key i miss my clicky blues but in gaming it feels more responsive . Going to recommend this keyboard to all my friends.

NETGEAR R7800 Nighthawk X4S AC2600 Smart WiFi MU-MIMO Gigabit Router
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Fast, reliable, awesome. 07/29/2016

This review is from: NETGEAR R7800 Nighthawk X4S AC2600 Smart WiFi MU-MIMO Gigabit Router

Pros: New routers are coming out with all sorts of new technology which can confuse some so here are the basics

-Mu-mimo (simultaneously transmits data to all devices at once instead of the traditional 1 at a time)
-Dynamic QoS (prioritizes packets based on demand the end result is less noticeable lag)
-Beamforming with 4 high powered antenna's + quad stream wifi (for more reliable connections)
-Maximum possible throughput of 2600mb/s is insanely fast
-160mhz mode (for devices that support this, it theoretically doubles bandwith and increases the range of wifi, though not many things support this as of now)
-1.7ghz dual core processor is enough to handle all of the functions of the router plus the built in DDoS protection
-Easy to use mobile app + web setup
-2 USB 3.0 ports + esata for when you absolutely need the fastest speed while transferring files over the network
-Readyshare app allows you to backup data from your computer to a connected storage device

Cons: The white lights are bright. They can be a personal nightlight and even when you turn the led lights off one still remains and it's still brighter than i would like, it doesn't help that the lights shine through the grille in the front.

Web setup is a bit unresponsive at times but is laid out about as well as you can want.

Other Thoughts: Dynamic QoS isn't enabled by default but it's not hard to find and check the box. This feature alone is worth the price tag on this router. Being able to download games/movies/music while gaming and streaming netflix to my TV and tablets and all the mobile devices connected to the router all without lagging the network is absolutely insane. While not entirely different from my old router, i've noticed an overall distinct speed increase on my day to day use with this thing. Would absolutely reccomend to anyone/friends who want a no compromise router that will last some time.

Never had a dropped connection yet, everything has been reliable and stable. Can't wait for 160mhz compatible device to be used/more common among devices.

Esata and usb 3.0's for storage was another cool feature. I can hook up a big external drive and use it as a nas and the usb ports for thumb drives for sharing data across the network easily and fast.

Other than the LED's, the styling is on point but one thing you should note is this thing is HUGE. Biggest router i've ever owned. Don't get me wrong, i'm not complaining but it takes up the entire shelf i put my routers on.

Overall i'm very pleased with this router. It's well thought out and has a list of great features at a pleasing price point.
