ZyXEL NBG6815 AC2200 MU-MIMO Dual-Band Wireless Gigabit Router
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

3 out of 5 eggs okay for the money 08/22/2016

This review is from: ZyXEL NBG6815 AC2200 MU-MIMO Dual-Band Wireless Gigabit Router

Pros: It is a more compact device without external antennas.
Range was decent considering the antennas
Easy to install and use.
LED status light on/off button
Interface seems well thought out, I do not think it will be confusing to new users liek some can be.

Cons: Stand appears to be permanent even though it offers wall mount as an option
Only USB 2.0
Signal quality was lacking, it would look like I had a strong signal, but connection speeds would be poor

Other Thoughts: I just can not recommend this one if you have a house or large area to cover. It worked okay when very close to it, but the range was very limited and that might just be what you get with internal antennas

TRENDnet TEW-827DRU AC2600 StreamBoost MU-MIMO WiFi Router
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

2 out of 5 eggs not reliable 08/22/2016

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-827DRU AC2600 StreamBoost MU-MIMO WiFi Router

Pros: 4 antennas
4 gigabyte ports
Unit Power Button
Wifi power button
LED on/off switch
Two USB 3.0 ports

I general it seems well built and I was hopeful it would work well. The interface is easy to use and the security settings are enabled by default. It took very minimal effort to get this up and running

Cons: Power cable is way too short
Applying changed and rebooting takes too long

After using this for a few week sit has started to require a reboot. I have been unable to figure out the specific cause, but the internet just slows to a crawl and sometimes the 5gh wireless just stops working and SSID disappears. Slowness was seen on wired and wireless devices even when I was the only one home using it. Maybe I just got a bad unit, but based on how this one is performing I can not recommend it.

Other Thoughts: there are much better devices out there, pick something else.

Silicon Power 64GB Superior Pro microSDXC UHS-I/U3 Class 10 Memory Card with Adapter, Speed Up to 90 MB/s (SP064GBSTXDU3V20SP)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: The first thing I noticed when I got this Sdcard is how colorful it is. I know this might seem stupid, but when you have a bunch of these tiny black microSDs it can be hard to find them in a bag or if you drop one. It is nice that they used white and some other colors to make the tiny card stand out.

An Sdcard adapter is provided in case you need to put this into something that only reads full size Sdcards

This card is blazing fast, perfect for using in a GoPro until you smash it into a tree at 80mph on a miniquad, but please do not tell the big box retailer that is what I was using it for. It just fell out of my hand I swear.

Seriously this thing is great for just about anything you want to use it for and the price is very good for the size and speed.

I can't tell you what the long term reliability will be, but so far its worked very well.

Cons: I do not have any cons to list, I mean this isn't a well-known brand to me and that might scare you, but it shouldn’t scare you because this company stands behind their product.

Other Thoughts: For the price I can't think of a single reason to buy anything else. Clearly I have not used it long enough nor do I have tons of them to say yeah these are as good as other brands over the long term, but I am very happy with it so far.
