TP-LINK Archer C9 Wireless AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Love it! 08/18/2015

This review is from: TP-LINK Archer C9 Wireless AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router

Pros: FAST and STABLE! Looks great and packed nicely!
Best range I've seen on any of my routers.
Very simple and easy setup that works perfectly out of the box.
User interface is fast and simple to understand and loaded with features I'll never use but they are there for those who will.
Simultaneous Dual band with 3 big 5dBi detachable antennas.
600 Mbps on 2.4 GHz and 1300 Mbps on 5GHz.
Dual Core processor and it runs cool in my environment.
Sits vertical and hides well behind a picture frame.
Easy to use WIFI on off button with USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports and a WPS button.
Runs a PS3, PS4, WiiU, several smart phones, and Playstation Vita at the same time without any lag or buffering issues whatsoever.
Maintenance free so far.

Cons: Price but its mostly justified by the performance and reliability.
Not too fond of the white
Sits vertical only so that could be a problem for some users and it's big, and it can't be mounted to the wall.

Other Thoughts: I've been very pleased with this router. I'd say that its the best one I've had yet. The user interface is very easy to understand and it's quite responsive as well. The dual core keeps it up to speed and it seems to run pretty cool in my house hidden behind a picture frame. I have a range extender in my detached garage that was vital with my old router and this one gets me 2 bars of signal on my S5 making the extender almost not needed. I'd pay the price for this nice of a router again with the ease of setup and reliable performance it gives me.

Linksys RE6700 AC1200 AMPLIFY Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender

5 out of 5 eggs best yet! 07/26/2015

This review is from: Linksys RE6700 AC1200 AMPLIFY Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender

Pros: Adds a second wireless network with the ability to customize it. I get a very good range from this extender at both 2.4GHz and 5GHz. Reliable and simple to get it going with an awesome ability to receive a weak signal and boost it to a useful and reliable connection that streams video at high quality. WPS button works great, and the wired port on the bottom is nice to hook up things such as a home security DVR system giving it online functionality. This extender has a 3.5 mm audio jack which will come in quite handy I'm sure for streaming music to my garage stereo while allowing my to keep my phone on me and not tethered to the stereo. Price seems fair enough and it does work very well to justify itself in that aspect.

Cons: I had some issues hooking it up prior to the firmware update but that was resolved after the update. I was unable to enter my password as it would instantly tell me the password to my network was incorrect even though it didn't have time to even try it and I know for a fact it was the correct password. Price is a bit high but it does work great and it has some nice features.

Other Thoughts: I'm very pleased with this extender. This is the first one I've used that makes a new network to connect to instead of trying to extend the existing one with the same settings which always had many issues for me. I like having the freedom to name the new network and change the password to my liking even though the default setup works flawlessly. I'm amazed at how strong the signal is coming from it as it isn't much weaker than the router that's in the same room when the extender is in another building in the backyard. I have completely usable fast internet anywhere on my property which is a little under one acre in size.

I did run into some issues with my old router but I determined that my router was to blame since my stock ATT Uverse router works perfectly other than only having 2.4GHz, and my TP-LINK Archer C9 works perfectly running dual band on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz.

OCZ Vector 180 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works in PS4, 480GB, SATA 3, OCZ Barefoot 3 controller, Stable, Quiet, Runs cool, Free cloning software, Reliable, Looks great, Seems durable.

I was able to install this SSD in my PC very quickly. System booted in less than 12 seconds from powered off to searching the web compared to over a minute with my old SATA 3 HDD. Very stable with no issues running on my PC. All my apps opened very fast and my entire system worked much better.

I installed this drive in my PS4 and it went smoothly without any issues. PS4 runs much faster now and I've easily cut my load times in half. Almost the same amount of storage as the standard HDD it came with. The PS4 runs quieter, cooler, and smoother than it did before the swap.

Cons: When using this drive in my PS4 I found that the system no longer supports suspending apps while the system in rest mode. I was able to put the system to rest but it would only crash when I tried to power on the system. This happens even when there are no apps running but the option is enabled in the system settings. System works perfectly when that option is disabled. I'm using a launch model PS4 so that might have something to do with it.

Other Thoughts: I love this drive and I'll be getting another sometime in the future for my PC. Other than the issue with suspending apps on the PS4 I have no problems and I can deal with that. While I was using it in my PC I ran AS SSD Benchmark and here are my results.

I've been very pleased overall with it and I'd recommend you give it go. You'll be pleased you did, and as always Newegg rocks!
