Linksys EA7300 MAX-STREAM AC1750 Next Gen MU-MIMO Smart Wi-Fi Router with Seamless Roaming
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Works Great and comparable to higher end routers 04/23/2017

This review is from: Linksys EA7300 MAX-STREAM AC1750 Next Gen MU-MIMO Smart Wi-Fi Router with Seamless Roaming

Pros: -Minimal lighting
-Maximum speeds out of ISP
-Easy to setup and automatically configures IP
-USB3.0 slot
-Wireless AC1750 + MIMO
-Configure via browser (No software needed)
-4 Gigabit Ethernet ports

Cons: -USB3.0 transfer speeds via WIFI are slow ~20MB
-MIMO Technology not noticeable from user
-Lacks VPN and advanced router settings

Other Thoughts: This behaves exactly like the AC7500 that is priced at $149.99. I did a direct comparison and my ISP speeds were the same. Theres not much difference between AC1750 and AC1900 unless your ISP speeds are greater. The only real difference is B/G 2.4gHz is 450mbps vs 600mbps on the AC1900. Again on paper its a difference but in reality no difference as all my devices are AC.

The package includes the router, 3 removable antennas, installation CD, ethernet cable, power adapter, and quick start guide. Installation is simple, just hook up the ethernet cable to the router and restart the the modem - it will configure itself automatically. Make sure you use CAT5E minimum or CAT6 cables to fully maximize your LAN network and internet speeds especially if your internet exceeds 100Mbps.

The wifi defaults to the provided SSID and you can access the linksys settings by connecting to the network and typing “192.168.1.1”. The network settings itself are VERY BASIC and will satisfy the average consumer that simply use the router for WIFI. The only adjustments I make in the settings are changing the wifi name and channels to the best one in my area. I use the Wifi SCAN on a MAC that tells me the best 2.4GHz and 5GHz channel to use and I change them accordingly in the linksys setting. I also disable media prioritization as I do not want any throttling of my devices. There are guest access, parental controls, and security settings. NO VPN settings- Again, VERY BASIC settings that are available.

You can also attach a USB 3.0/2.0 hard drive to the back of the router as there is 1 USB 3.0 slot. This does work great for movies as I have a Nexus Player and can access the HD that is connected to the back of the router via WIFI. It is a great feature since you can watch movies off the HD through Wifi. File transfers VIA wifi to the USB3.0 HD are very slow at around ~20MB, so don’t expect to transfer large files via WIFI fast.

The reliability has been great and I have about 12+ network devices connected at once. Rokus, Mac minis, iPhones, PS4, PCs (LAN), MacBooks, iPads, Android phones all connect via WIFI and work FANTASTIC. In a 2-story house about 60 FEET away I can get MAX internet speeds (on AC devices) as if I was hard-wired.

I am currently paying for 150Mbps/10Mpbs internet speeds from my ISP and through WIFI upstairs my actual speeds are 172Mbps/12Mpbs with a wireless AC device. I am actually meeting and exceeding my ISP speeds which is what you expect from a router.

Also, there is very minimal lighting on the router itself- only the Linksys logo lights up blue and blinks when their is no internet connectivity.

Overall, this is a great looking and performing router but with basic network configurations. Despite the lack of configurations it has suited me well for my needs in streaming movies, internet downloading, internet browsing, online gaming, and streaming movies via attached USB HD. Although it is advertised as MIMO, in actual every day usage it is negligible on the user end. Compared to the AC1900 EA7500 I don’t notice a measurable difference in speed. For the price of $99.99 it is very affordable and reliable that you can simply set up and forget about and one that maximizes the most out of your ISP speeds.

Corsair Gaming VOID Surround Gaming Headset, Carbon
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Great Headset 04/02/2017

This review is from: Corsair Gaming VOID Surround Gaming Headset, Carbon

Pros: -Dolby 7.1 surround (simulated)
-can connect to 3.5mm source (PS4 controller, Etc.) but stereo sound
-Cloth material does warm up but not as much as leather
-ear cups swivel and 90 degrees
-sufficient padding on ear cups and top band (comfortable for extended use)
-boom mic swivels up and down
-mic is good for chatting but not good for recording
-Corsair utiliy for EQ/Mic adjustments
-50mm drivers
-volume and mic buttons on side

Cons: -mic distance is not adjustable
-bass is a little loose
-sound leakage (due to cloth ear pads)
-plasticky build

Other Thoughts: This is wired headset when plugged in the computer offers DD 7.1 surround (simulated) via the USB adapter. If you were to use it w/o the adapter such as plugging into the PS4 controller it offers stereo sound. The 7.1 surround does sound much better and offers more detail/clarity and separation. The eq and mic settings are adjustable via the Corsair software. They do sound great for $80 but are definitely not the best (bass is a bit loose and highs are a little lacking). The padding is sufficient for extended use, especially on the top of the head. The earpads are cloth, swivel 90 degrees, and does leak sound. The build quality is plastic and feels fine for using it at home, I would be hesitant to pack them for travel. The cord is very long at 6' so if you're plugging it into a console controller you will need to roll it. Overall, it supports the pc/console and sound and fitment is great. I do wish the build was a bit better and was wireless. At $80 it should be wireless with the option for a 3.5mm cable.

The tension can be adjusted on the arm and cable can be hidden in the arm. So far the monitor does not move after adjusting and clamping to the table. I highly recommend it for those wanting to mount it on an adjustable arm.
