DEEPCOOL STEAM CASTLE (YELLOW) Unique Steam Punk Style With Side Window 200mm Fan(Front) Micro ATX / Mini-ITX+120mm Fan(Rear)+4 Magic Controllable LED Lights (Top) SGCC+PLASTIC (ABS)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Design - The Steam Punk design is the coolest design I have seen for a case and the color sets it off. Would have preferred Red, but the Yellow is almost as cool. It is mainly plastic, which I prefer more metal.

Features - Acceptable air flow thru the unit, ran an overclocked processor for three days with high demands and didn't have any issues. Air flow is not as good as my other Deepcool cases due to number of fans and positioning. You are able to add fans to the top, which would have made this an even better case. Case also can support a 140mm fan on the side and openings for watercooling. 200mm at the front of the unit!! 5.25" and 3.5" drive bays at the front. Two 2.50" Hard drive bays.

Space: Large Graphics card will have no issues in this unit. Looks to be up to 320mm will fit, my 290mm largest had no issues. The side connections were an advantage over my other cases, getting wires out of the way.

Lighting: Several color options for the steam vent lighting on the top. Really looks cool with the lights off.

Cons: Connections placement: ON THE SIDE!!! Unlike my other Deepcool, this has them on the side, instead of the front. For a unit out in the open they work well, but for a computer desk, it made them impossible to use.

Case construction: be careful with the connections as you can break the panel. Metal would have been a better pick.

Other Thoughts: Notes: Motherboad is installed horizontally, which helped with room. The fan controller was included, which is not always the case.

This is just a cool designed case that is best out in the open. Proper airflow is a must if you don't add fans or do water cooling. The side connection placement will be an issue for people using a computer desk.

Overall, I love the look of this product so much that it is on display for in my front room as the backup computer/kid computer. The kids love turning it on!

APC Black 5000mAh Mobile Power Pack M5BK
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Great little charger, but has limits 01/08/2015

This review is from: APC Black 5000mAh Mobile Power Pack M5BK

Pros: Looks - very high-end glossy look.
Construction - Very solid, may have used an impact protecting product like Rogers PORON foam used in Apple and Microsoft products, as the sound is soft on impact and there was no damage from four feet. No better impact protection for electronics.
Small but powerful - size is just larger than my Samsung S4 and Sony Z2, and a little heavier. Was able to recharge my Sony 2.1 times and my Samsung 2.6 times, but had to use the 2.4 port.
Two ports - One is for tablets and the other is for phones. My Samsung and Sony both need the 2.4 port. The 1.0 port was less useful, as I don't have a phone that uses that low. Was able to use it on my Sony Walkman and it was able to charge it three times.
Charge time of the device - A very quick 3 hours and 15 minutes to fully charge the device. Average charge time of 10 charges was 3 hours and 24 minutes.
Price - excellent price for what you get.

Cons: Finish - The glossy looks give to scratch hell within a week in the car. It looked like I thru it in a dryer with sheets of sand paper.
1.0 Port - Not useful with today's power hungry devices.
Charge unit while charging the phone - not able to do that with the product.
Weather issues - Like all batteries, cold really drains the power. Left in the car overnight at 25 degrees F.

Other Thoughts: This will be staying in my car as I will not use my car charger for my phones and overcharge them, thus damaging the batteries. It was nice to be able to charge my phone and Walkman at the same time.

Love the product!!!!

TP-LINK TL-WA860RE V2 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender/Repeater with Power Outlet Pass-through, Dual External Antennas, Wall Plug Design, One-button Setup, Smart Signal Indicator
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 1. An extra outlet, so you don't lose an outlet when it is plugged in.
2. Antennas are wide enough to be out of the way of the other plugs.
3. Ability to set it up with WPS. It took two times to get the devise to hook on to my system, but that is the case sometimes with extenders.
4. Ability to set up the unit by Ethernet cord. Always an easy choice for setting things up fast.
5. The extender uses the same name as my network. This helps with the hand off and when the connection goes down.
6. Increased the number of bars by one on the wireless system and increased data flow by 33 percent.

Cons: 1. It is on the ugly side, which is surprising for TP-Link since I have two of their sleek and cool looking extenders.
2. No 5 Ghz network support. I am surprised by this since my other TP-Link extenders have it.
3. Performance - It was not bad, but it was not as good as my other TP-Link extenders. You can see I was really missing my usual extenders.

Other Thoughts: Setup: i5 Core Desktop Computer, Lenovo T430 Windows 7, Netgear 3700 Wireless Router.

Performance of the product was just not up to my other Tp-Link extenders. Typical downloads were 7Mbps and uploads were an ugly 2Mbps. Gaming online had buffering issues and watching Netflix also had buffering and slow to SD TV quality due to slow speed.

I could have given it three starts but the product does what it says it will and gives you a plug. It is not as good as other TP-Link routers that are duel band, but I assumed that since it only has 2.4.
