Belkin F9K1113 AC1200 Dual Band Wireless AC+ Gigabit Router
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Okay wifi router 01/24/2016

This review is from: Belkin F9K1113 AC1200 Dual Band Wireless AC+ Gigabit Router

Pros: This device is small but packed with features, it is black with internal antennas so it should blend into a lot of environments easily. The white routers tend to stand out like a sore thumb. This is the middle range device from Belkin

4 gig ports to connect your devices
A USB port its version 2.0, but it should work fine for most things you would use it for like a printer.
They include a decent length network cable. I have seen so many routers with like a 1 foot cable just barely long enough to plug It into a laptop and just thought, what a useless thing to include.

Setup was very easy, you can use a tablet or phone to connect to it wirelessly for the setup. I think it is well suited for most anyone to use.
The LED light brightness can be adjusted so you get to decide how bright you want them, this is really nice as some routers will blind you with how bright they are.

Power brick is well thought out it has a sideways orientation so it won't block both power ports if it is installed in the top

Cons: Can't be wall mounted, this may not be an issue for some, but be aware of it
Must stand up, can't lay it flat.
Price - I really feel they are asking too much money
And here is the real con and the reason I took a star away - limited range
I live in a 2 story house and this unit leaves dead zones where connectivity is intermittent, this could be because of other WiFi signals around me, but I have used other units that do not have this issue. I realize this is their midrange device, but the price I think warrants more power

Other Thoughts: In general this is a good device, but I think there are other wifi routers in the same price range that will have better range.

SteelSeries Rival 300 Gaming Mouse - Black
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Good gaming mouse for the price 01/24/2016

This review is from: SteelSeries Rival 300 Gaming Mouse - Black

Pros: Great for large hands which I have so that was an added bonus
Has a good weight, not adjustable, but I felt they chose a good medium weight that would appease the majority of people
The adjustable lights are easy to use
It is a right handed mouse and will not work well for a lefthander
Feels and looks well made
The top is a rubbery smooth texture that feels nice and the sides are a bumpy texture that helps keep a solid grip.
Packaging was simple, but well designed to keep the product from getting damaged. The tage on the mouse cord tells you where to get the software.

Cons: No braided cables
No option for a left hander
Weight not adjustable

Nothing worth taking an egg away, just pointing out things you may have need or wanted that it will not have

Other Thoughts: In the end I think this is a good mouse. It has enough of the features you want for the cost of it. Many gaming mice go all out with features you do not need that jack up the cost and add complexity, this one gets it just right.


The only thing I can't tell you for sure is will this last a long time, but you really never know that about any mouse you buy. I have used some very expensive gaming mice only to have them break in a few weeks. I think this one is a winne

LG Electronics PV150G LED Minibeam Projector with Embedded Battery and Wireless Screen Share
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Wow, so this little projector is impressive. Let me say right off that you must connect to it HDMI, you can use the USB connection for storage devices only not a PC. It natively plays MKV and MP4 video files direct from a USB stick. You can take this on vacation and watch movies you have stored on a USB stick, great for entertaining the kids.

This worked well on any flat surface, but brightness is an issue so you will need a dark room.

I paired this projector with a streaming stick and was able to easily stream movies and TV shows from various popular services. I found myself streaming soccer games in whatever room I felt like being in rather than worrying about who wanted to watch something on our main TV.

This has also been very convenient to setup when the kids are fighting about what they want to watch as it even runs on a battery so it is a very versatile solution.

It also natively supports many picture formats so if you want to show pictures of your recent vacation you could just toss the pics or videos on a USB stick and off you go.

Obviously this comes in very handy for business presentations, it easily works with any laptop assuming you have some way of outputting to HDMI. You might need to get an adapter if your laptop only has VGA, DVI or Display port.

I found the controls easy to use. The remote was easy enough.

Cons: List Price, but it seems to go on sale a lot for as much as %50 off
Not as bright as I would like
Does not come with an HDMI cable.
Location of the power button is between the HDMI and USB port making it difficult to use while a streaming stick is installed and powered by the USB

Other Thoughts: The more I use this projector the more I like it. Paired with a streaming stick it is the perfect combo for entertainment in any room. It makes presentations a breeze. I had to really get picky to find any cons, the unit is not 100% perfect, but overall I still felt it was worth 5 eggs.

It is truly a multipurpose device, it can be used for work, or entertainment at home or while traveling.
