Orange Control Edition Soft Large Gaming Mouse Pad

5 out of 5 eggs Nice Mouse Pad 09/20/2015

This review is from: Orange Control Edition Soft Large Gaming Mouse Pad

Pros: Mouse works great on the pad.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: A great alternative to the more "Expensive" name brand mouse pads. I am not a gamer, but was looking for a quality mouse pad and this fit the bill. I purchased 2 of them - One for me and one for my wife. I would buy this again.

SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X Radeon R9 270 DirectX 11.2 100365VXL 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Worked great while running Windows 7

Cons: After upgrading to Windows 10, has an issue with the monitor power saving mode. After the monitor goes into the power saving mode in Win 10, they take 30 - 45 seconds to come out of the power saving mode. This did not happen while running Win 7. I have tried just running the driver with and without the AMD control center installed, no difference. If it were not for this issue, the card works fine. I have Win 10 setup as maximum performance and the Hibernate and Sleep mode disabled.

Other Thoughts: After trying several things like changing my DVI cables to VGA, resetting my Dell monitors to factory default I decided to remove the AMD drivers and the Video card and enabled the on board Intel 4600 video card and I do not have the power saving mode issue. So it is either a compatibility issue with Win 10 and this card or a driver issue. Not to happy as this card may not be the top of the line but it is not cheap either.

ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Solid wireless connections on both the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz frequencies even in a 1300 sq. ft apartment. The USB ports work great.

Cons: Did not purchase this from Newegg as the “P” version is only sold at a large retail store and it is only made for that retailer

Other Thoughts: After reading the reviews here and looking at the negative reviews as well, I was hesitant at first. I then wondered what was the difference between the 2 versions - after all, they both are AC1900. I then found an article that someone wrote where he purchased both versions and took them apart. On the “P” version, there were a few improvements that were made which resolves the issues that are found in the negative reviews here. The USB ports have shielding on them to improve the speed and reliability of the ports, the processor was upgraded and there are extra heat sinks added and some other minor revisions made. So, I purchased the “P” version from the retail store and I am very happy with it. I purchased the RT-AC68P to replace a WNDR-4300 that on a good day, would give me 3 bars on the 2.4 GHz even in the same room as the router and forget about the 5 GHz which would only get 1 bar. It was a disappointment because I had the WNDR-3800 and it was great. So far, The RT-AC68P has exceeded my expectations as I now have 5 full bars on the 5 GHz bans as well as on the 2.4 GHz even at 1300 square feet away.
