Corsair Gaming SCIMITAR PRO RGB Gaming Mouse, Backlit RGB LED, 16000 DPI, Black Side Panel, Optical
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: I'm kinda nit picky about mouses especially with mice that have more than your standard buttons but this one feels great.

-Plastic isnt glossy and cleans pretty easy
-the only rubber part is on the right side and it doesnt seem to collect oils and dirt from your hands like other mice do
-mouse scroll wheel is easy but not too easy and the click operation is satisfying and again, not too easy but just right
-adjustable mechanical side buttons is surprisingly fantastic! You can adjust the postion to fit any size hands and they all have a statisfying clicky feel to them and also 2 of the rows of keys are textured differently so you can find your place easy without looking
-RGB lightning in all the right spots make the mouse look awesome without being too bright
-one of the lit up areas is a DPI light that tells you what dpi profile it's on based on the color
-CUE software setup was easy and it already manages my keyboard and my headset so no issues there.
-16000 dpi is kind of overkill tho if you have higher resolutions it definitely becomes helpful. I run at 3200dpi on regular 1080p monitors and its fine for me.
-the usual 1ms polling and some sort of calibration software seems to be found on lots of mice and works very well.
-macros can go a long way as well for any key.

Cons: Side buttons are a little close even with the different textured keys.
CUE software crashes for me and it stops all my macros from working and won't save any profiles.
The box is just silly. Make a box thats easy to open not to look good while its inside. It took me a minute to figure out not really a con just an annoyance that unboxing the mouse was harder than trying to use the software for it.

Other Thoughts: Ive always been indifferent to having 12 buttons where my thumb sits. I play mmo's and i cant think of a single time id rather have all the buttons on my mouse but i guess that's just me, so instead i made a bunch of macros for certain buttons to do things that make life easier like print screen or copy and paste (some of these are default just not in the right spot for me)

Not too heavy or to small its super responsive and has great flexibility.

TP-LINK TL-WA860RE-E 300 Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender / Repeater with Power Outlet Pass-through, Dual External Antennas, One-button Setup, Smart Signal Indicator (Easy-open package)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Outlet passthrough
Dual antennas
Ethernet port
Great range for this little device

This thing is no harder to setup than most, just plug near your router hit the WPS button and when it connects relocate to where you want to extend your range! It copies your current routers SSID settings!

Cons: Only 2.4ghz that can potentially interfere with a lot of household appliances

Other Thoughts: Great little device that extends your wifi coverage pretty reliably. I've had it for about a week with no cutting out and the speeds are fast enough that my mom hasn't complained.

I don't know why people are complaining about the instructions, the only one you need is a fold out that shows you step by step how to set it up with some big pictures. You should already know how to setup an extender anyways as it's virtually the same as every other WiFi extender out there.

Corsair SP Series, SP120 RGB LED, 120mm High Performance RGB LED Fan (CO-9050061-WW) 3-pack
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Amazing product from corsair as usual 11/29/2016

This review is from: Corsair SP Series, SP120 RGB LED, 120mm High Performance RGB LED Fan (CO-9050061-WW) 3-pack

Pros: Well packaged inside includes:

3 SP120 RGB fans
1 fan hub that can connect up to 6 of these bad boys
1 controller panel for the hub that has optional cables for external control(more on this later)
Fans are quiet enough you can hear them moving but it's not loud loud by any stretch.
Documentation and enough screws for all 3 fans
All the wires have healthy lengths to them to ensure proper fitment in all cases and the controller panel and the hub both have double sided sticky pads to attach them anywhere you see fit.

Cons: No rubber pads on the fans to reduce vibration noise
Because fans are RGB they have 2 wires coming from them, 1 of which you use to connect to the included fan hub the other plugs into a regular fan header on your motherboard for optional power gain

Other Thoughts: This fan hub is pretty unique. Connected to the 6 port fan hub is the controller panel, with it you can control speed, color of rgbs, and mode of the color. In addition to the controller panel, you get 3 little 2 prong wires that can attach to the controller that you can use say your power button header on your motherboard to connect it to, when you do this pressing your power button would change the mode or speed or color (whatever wire is attached) externally without having to open your case, you can also use any sort of basic wiring with a ground and power to on some sort of switch to do this as well so modders can be creative.

Currently the fan modes are: Breathing, Flickering and static.
Speed modes are simply high medium or low
As for colors, it's RGB so any basic color there is.

I enjoy this product, it was a bit extensive to plug in some fans and get them going but rgbs look good and ive mounted my controller outside my case so i can change my settings at any time.
