This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager 64GB Slider X1 USB Flash Drive Model CMFSL3X1-64GB
Pros: -$29 at the time of review is a good price for a 64GB USB 3.0 drive
-It's a compact drive and has a solid feel.
Cons: -Since it's a slider, the port is not fully covered when you aren't using it
-For the price, I dont' think the speed is a big con, but it doesn't take full advantage of USB 3.0.
-Write ~ 20MB/s
-Read ~ 80MB/s
Pros: The main pro of this router is it's performance. It did perform well for me. I did not suffer any connectivity issues with it while using it for a couple months. Often times there would be multiple devices streaming video or online gaming and bandwidth was not a problem.
Range wise it is good. Relative to other routers I've used in this price range, the 2.4GHz range is average and the 5GHz range is above average.
There is a USB 3.0 port on the back which is to be expected with a router this price range. I also think it is valuable that the other port is an eSATA/USB2.0.
Cons: I have never liked how Linksys tries to oversimplify things in the setup and interface. By default, only 1 SSID is broadcasted and you connect all your devices to it and it automatically chooses if that device should be on the 2.4GHz or 5GHz network. If you ask me, this is no benefit. I still have to do the same number of clicks to connect. But now if I want to choose the network, I have to go in and change the settings. There's also the classic Linksys problem of forcing your networks to be mixed rather than just AC. Some of us do have AC devices.
It is big and has a large footprint if you have it on a desk or table.
The ethernet cord that comes with it is too short.
The power brick is just silly. Its really big and part of the plug. I don't understand why they don't just make it a power brick along the length of the cord rather than as part of the plug. This thing fell out of my power strip due to its weight and length causing the only interruptions I had while using it.
Other Thoughts: Originally this was priced at $250 which is way too high. When I received it, the price was $200 and I'd say that is still too high. Now as I write the review, the price is $180. At this price it may be worth considering if the cons I list are not of concern to you.READ FULL REVIEW
