Mushkin 128GB Impact USB 3.0 (MLC NAND) Flash Drive Model MKNUFDIM128GB

3 out of 5 eggs Impressive seq reads/writes, 4k is meh 06/16/2016

This review is from: Mushkin 128GB Impact USB 3.0 (MLC NAND) Flash Drive Model MKNUFDIM128GB

Pros: Reads/Writes as advertised, over 390MB/s peak reads, over 190MB/s peak writes as tested with CrystalDiskMark. Nice metal feel/high quality feel....

Cons: 4K speeds and 4K Q32T1 speeds are terrible.
less than .1MB/s reads and writes on multiple tested USB 3.0 ports

Other Thoughts: I wasn't expecting blazing 4K speeds, but another cheaper USB 3.0 flash drive I have that is rated at 200MB/s read 100MB/s write max, and it gets around 11MB/s reads and writes while testing 4K (on the same USB ports). Maybe my drive has a controller issue and I got unlucky, but for now I'll just use it for moving large single files instead of folders full of small files.

SAPPHIRE R9 200 Radeon R9 290 DirectX 11.2 100362SR 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Plug-in Card Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Maxing most games at 1080p/ultra 4x and 8xMSAA depending on the game. Upgraded from a single HD7870, this card beats two of them in crossfire. My i3-4170 is the bottleneck now, but only on some games. Doubles as a space heater in the winter, took my low 50s gaming room to over 60f within an hour of intense gaming (see Cons/other thoughts)

Cons: Its crazy hot and loud. Do your research on the first gen/OEM heatsink 290's. Now that its warmer out, my small room gets HOT when gaming, this thing just DUMPS hot air out the back. The fan is annoyingly loud, but I knew that coming in, using OC'ing software to manually set my fan higher on idle, and have it max at 45% quickly to keep it cool (will hit 90c+ like that its job).

Other Thoughts: Got this beast during early Black Friday '15 deals, absolute steal. Still worth after rebate price as of review date, since the R9 390 is still a bump up, and most don't need 8GB yet at this now mid level GPU. Just remember to allow for noise/heat. I have since purchased an aftermarket HSF system, but have not installed yet.

TRENDnet TEW-811DRU AC1200 Dual Band Wireless Router- 4 Gigabit port, Broadcom Chipset, DD-WRT Open Source support
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Price on sale, even at what seems to be regular price its decent, with a bit of elbow grease, you can have a sweet unit for cheap.
DD-WRT support
AC1200 speeds

Cons: Stock firmware is kinda lame, but I literally had the unit on the stock firmware just log enough to flash to DD-WRT

Other Thoughts: The internal antennas are connected using normal U.FL connectors (same tiny connectors used in laptops wireless cards to internal antennas), which was great, had a couple U.FL to SMA cables, drilled a couple holes in the housing on top, mounted a couple external antennas. Using DD-WRT, turned the unit into a wireless client, and connected my desktop to one of the gigabit ports. After a bit of setup, was running around 800Mbps @ 5Ghz from this unit to my buddies sorta lame AC1200 router. Gaming without issue! (was worried about latency through a couple walls, only added 5-15ms ping depending on the game)
