This review is from: Corsair Gaming M65 RGB Laser Gaming Mouse - Black
Pros: The Corsair M65 FPS Gaming Mouse is a solidly built mouse for the serious gamer. It features an aluminum frame, a 6’ 9” USB cable, a highly sensitive laser tracking system, and removable weights to add/remove to your comfort. Included in the box is the mouse, a quick start guide, and a warranty guide. You can download and install the Gaming Mouse Software in order to customize your buttons and sensitivity. This mouse comes with a “sniper” button which can be pressed to reduce the mouse sensitivity for those long range high precision shots, when you release the button the mouse goes back to your pre-set responsiveness. This can all be customized from within the software. This mouse features 8 buttons that can be customized. This mouse has a good feel and size though users with small hands may find it on the large size.
Cons: None as of this moment. I will write another review if I run into any.
Other Thoughts: This mouse is a treat for gaming. I especially like the sniper button though I wish it could be moved back a bit as the button is a bit of a reach for my thumb when holding the mouse in a comfortable position. This mouse would also be beneficial to use in art or design applications where being able to switch from quick work to detailed work would be helpful to the process.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: IRULU W10 Tablet PC 10.1" Windows 10 32GB Quad Core Intel Laptop w/ Keyboard
Pros: The IRULU W10 Tablet PC 10.1 is a decent tablet at a low cost. Mine arrived with Windows 8.1 installed. Included in the package is the tablet, a wraparound cover with built-in keyboard, a charger, an USB to Micro USB cable, and a quick start guide. The tablet itself has a standard headphone jack, a mini-hdmi out port, a TF (MicroSD) card slot, a micro USB port, and a standard USB2.0 port. The overall system has a smooth operating feel. I was a bit worried about the 2 GB of RAM on Windows 8 but didn’t experience any of the expected slowdowns. The touchscreen is very responsive. The screen is crisp and clear and is covered by the included factory installed screen protector. The battery has a comparable capacity to other tablets I have used. I was able to do about 4 hrs of medium to heavy load tasks on a single charge. As a tablet I would place this as a cheaper alternative to the Surface, though it does have some cons listed below.
Cons: Only two.
First the keyboard, the keys are not very responsive and take a heavy touch. The keyboard is narrow which makes it difficult to type on (for me at least, I’m used to laptop keyboards).
Second is the storage, 32 GB of storage gets eaten up pretty quickly in a Windows environment. After all windows updates, cleaning up as much space as I could (including removing old windows update files) and installing Office 2013 Pro I was left with about 7.5 GB free. Not enough to upgrade to Windows 10 apparently, though I am currently trying to compress the drive and free up some more space.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this tablet to someone that is looking for a lower cost option than the iPad or Surface. It is a good system for users that only have a light duty need for a computer/tablet such as browsing the web or e-mail. It is relatively light weight and easily to pack.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS RP-AC56 AC1200 Wireless Dual-Band Repeater / Access Point/Media Bridge
Pros: The Asus RP-AC56 Dual-band Range Extender/Access Point is a worthwhile investment if you are in need of extending your network range on a budget. The device can run in 5 different modes; Repeater mode, Expressway (Router to repeater use 5 GHz only, repeater to client use 2.4 GHz only), Expressway (Router to repeater use 2.4 GHz only, repeater to client use 5 GHz only), Media Bridge mode, and Access point mode. Without going into too much detail all of these options allow the Asus RP-AC56 to become the go-between between your computer and your router.
Out of the box you can simply follow the instructions on the quick start card by pressing the WPS setup button on your router, then pressing the WPS setup button on the RP-AC56. Once the LEDs turn on solid you can simply move the RP-AC56 to the furthest range of your network. There is a performance light included on the RP-AC56 that will either turn green or red depending on the quality of your network connection. Wherever you intend on utilizing the RP-AC56 be sure the Wi-Fi performance light is green.
If you are like me you probably don’t like the automated setups. In that case you will still like the RP-AC56. Once powered on simply connect a laptop or desktop to the device through Wi-Fi or Ethernet on 192.168.1.1. From there you can get into the advanced setup options. The RP-AC56 is quite user friendly.
Cons: Only one and it is my issue. I don’t use WPS on my routers so my only choice was to go through the web interface for setup. I have not run into any real cons at this point.
Other Thoughts: Included in the box – A RP-AC56 Quick Start Guide, a card giving directions how to contact ASUS if you are having trouble, a registration card (Asus calls it a VIP Member Warranty Notice), and a FFC legal print out.
You will need your own router (wireless or wired-only) as the go between the RP-AC56 and your internet modem. The RP-AC56 is simply a Range Extender/Access Point for your existing network.
There is an audio (3.5 mm jack) on the RP-AC56. If you login to the RP-AC56’s web interface and select Audio you can use this port to stream music and control the music from your Apple or Android phone.
