TP-LINK Archer T2U AC600 Mini Wireless Dual Band Adapter, 2.4GHz 150Mbps/5Ghz 433Mbps,One-Button Setup,Windows XP/7/8
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - It's Wi-Fi on a stick!
- Range is pretty good, about the same as the built in Wi-Fi on my laptop
- Works for streaming HD video and online games
- Dual band is nice for being able to use 2.4GHz to push through walls

Cons: - Mini CD for drivers. It's 2014, put them on the device.
- Download speeds not as good as the built in Wi-Fi on my laptop
- Price - Other companies make essentially the same product for cheaper.

Other Thoughts: This TP-Link product actually was able to find, connect to, and stay on my network, something other products from them had trouble doing. It is slower than the built in Wi-Fi on my laptop, but other USB adapters I have tried are also slower. There's really no reason not to choose this if you need a USB wi-fi connection other than you may be able to find the same thing for less money from another company.

TP-LINK TL-WPA4220 N300 AV500 Wi-Fi Powerline Add-On Extender
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Not great 10/20/2014

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WPA4220 N300 AV500 Wi-Fi Powerline Add-On Extender

Pros: - Small form factor - easy to plug in to an outlet and still have room in that outlet to use the other plug.

Cons: - It has the same SSID issues as the TP-Link TL-WA850RE: If you clone your SSID wireless devices will freak out, constantly drop the connection and reacquire it.
- If you use this with a powerline adapter to bring wi-fi to another area of the house, prepare for the double-whammy of performance hits from both the powerline and wi-fi. (Not device specific, since both are prone to interference with any device.)
- Sometimes it loses connection, and seems to require a power cycle to get it back. Of course, if you do unplug this, you have to set it up all over again, so it's hard to tell.
- The range of the wi-fi seems to be pretty short. When my tablet connected, the signal was no stronger than it had been when it was drawing a signal from the router.

Other Thoughts: It's hard to reccommend a product that seems to make it as hard as possible to clone a wi-fi connection when there are a ton of super easy solutions available. The last wi-fi extender I reviewed was basically plug and play. Pop it in the outlet, hit the WPS button, and it just works. This one is too finicky with too little range to be worth the trouble.

CORSAIR HXi HX750i CP-9020072-NA 750W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Power Supply
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Super, super quiet. - The fan doesn't come on at idle, but even when it does come on it's very hard to hear. (Unfortunately, my test card is a GTX 590, so short of a jet engine, nothing else is heard when the system is under stress anyway.)

750W of power! - Enough to give life to an i7 2600, 2 SSDs, a blu-ray drive, and the GTX 590 without breaking a sweat.

Great components. - Tough to beat the quality of the electronics inside this thing. I wish gaming PC companies used these instead of the garbage PSUs they ship. ($4000 PC with a $50 PSU, like using a cheapo rebuilt alternator in a Ferrari.)

Cables! - Modular and flat. These are AWESOME! So easy to run behind and around things. Sleeved cables look nice, but are sometimes fat and hard to place. If you don't like the flat cables, you can always sleeve them yourself. Plugging in just what you need is great as well. No extra cables to tie up and hide.

Extras - Zip ties, case badge, a nice hook and loop closure bag to keep cables in, and a velvet bag for the PSU itself. Very cool.

Cons: Price? Come on. If you have quality stuff in your PC, why would you cheap out on the PSU? Yes, it's a little more than a Gold+ certified, and more expensive than some other Plat + PSUs.

Other Thoughts: My spare Alienware desktop is my test PC for stuff like this. Usually it goes in, gets tested, and comes back out. This is staying in until I have to test another PSU. I've used Corsair RAM in my builds for years, and now I will be using their PSUs as well.
