True Cloud Service
Pros: Unit is smaller than it looks on the web page, 5" tall, and about 3" around. Cloud storage for this one means you can access Your drive plugged into it's USB port from anywhere on the internet. This router is one of the newer Chip-sets that "Learns" the environment that it is in. If you have any interference in the area it will adjust its settings to allow the best signal. If yo have low 2.4 or 5.0 GHz speeds you most likely have interference on that channel. Again this is a PRO, not a con. Sleek Design is pretty descent looking without harming performance. Router configuration has a wizard, not bad either. If not using it for the internet, cancel the wizard and set it up manually (not much to do for Basic use). But this router does have some really advanced settings People like me drool over. USB drive speeds are spectacular compared to other routers (And I have reviewed some REALLY GOOD ONES) Power Supply cord is the perfect length for me.
Cons: No blinky flashy lights for me to stare at while my transfers complete :( Manual instructs on basic setup, for everything else you might have to Venture into EggXpert.com for advisement., Or sign up to your local Community College to take a course :P Supplied LAN cable is very short.
Overall Review: So far NewEgg has sent me Many Routers / switches for Review. I run them as hard as I can to see there maximum speeds and to see if they will fail. Only one has, but not this one. I run 4 Networks in my house, 2 for personal, and I added two more for testing these routers they keep sending me :D Performance of this one for me was Average for an AC1200 router, nothing better and nothing less than expected. Poor instructions (you marketing it as a cloud router give them up cheapskates) and the short lan cable are what knocked off an egg in this review. Thanks for reading.
Probably the worst EggXpert review I have ever given
Pros: Works descent as a wireless charger, great as a pass through. Nice design, solid, sleek, slim. USB-c 3.0-2.0 compatible as a fully functional USB hub.
Cons: Pauses charging often wirelessly, my $6 dollar store charger charges my Galaxy S10 5G an hour faster regardless of power input. No instructions what so ever. No customer support when seeking it. Cable is short, but that is a m00t point being you already own them. HDMI is 15 FPS on my ASUS UX533F Zen Book, 20 on my Gaming PC, non-existent on my Galaxy S10-5G (tried for the heck of it)
Overall Review: When I review an Item, instructions / Documentation / Customer service are just as important as the device itself. I did not receive any of this with this device. If you are a novice (not tech savy) and you buy this device, it may end up as a slow wireless charging device you don't know how to use the other options of that you paid $40 for. Not cool with me. The instructions, tell you to read the instructions before using the device. it is 6 inches tall and double sided.... there are no instructions. OK so I search there site, and find a PDF .... its the same thing. So I kick it up a notch, and kick to Customer service an E-Mail. I get a very rapid response asking me to state my question I already asked about the instructions, so I hit back and just asked, how do I use the HDMI port? They responded with "The HDMII port will allow you to View your device on larger screens" This is unacceptable to me as a reviewer, and I'm sure to most customers that may purchase expecting more. Some reviewers claim it functions perfectly right off thee bat, yet to not specify the equipment they are using it with......... neither does the 101 word sett of instructions.. Therefore to help you purchase Ii will include my test equipment specs. ASUS UX533F Zen Book running windows 10 PC is on a Gigabyte Z270X Desiiganare, Intel I-7700K cpu, 32GB Corsair RAM, and windows 10 Pro phone is Galaxy S10 5G Hopefully everyone else will update with what they used it on.
Top notch cooling I used to spend countless hours to do.
Pros: Super easy installation. Plenty of ways to mount it if it fits in your box. Lowered my temperatures quite a bit from air, have a heavy OC now.
Cons: Make sure it fits in your case....... Instructions are not for a novice, but neither is the cooler.
Overall Review: I bought this after needing a new solution, and it worked out very well for me. My I7-7700K is one cool cucumber, even at 5.2GHz. I recommend buying more fans it comes with for yyour case as it comes with a very nice fan controller interface.
Petit, but Stout
Pros: Small profile keeps it well out of the way of Components in small cases. Long cables mean they can reach everything in well designed eATX cases, and stay hidden. My Torture test reveled this PSU can work hard and stay cool. It is a bit under rated in its total output. Case mounting screws and small zip ties are supplied.
Cons: Did not clear Pollen from the air to help me make my video. Connectors for SATA and Molex are close together, careful planning should be used. SATA cables are all right angle, if you have back mounted hard drives on the back side of the main board it will likely be an issue. Long cable may be hard to hide in small cases.
Overall Review: System is an I7-7700K @ 5.2GHz, 2X GTx 460's in SLI @ 750MHz , 6 hard drives, 6x 140mm Corsair RGB fans, Corsair H150I 360mm liquid cooled, custom video card cooling system,. I torture tested the system for 3 days Using OCCT's PSU torture test, and believe me I was drawing 750 watts from the wall, I tortured it. It performed very well, fan was not even always on its highest noise level. (HAD TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING WAS STILL STABLE AFTER MOVING IT TO THE NEW CASE) Using my Automotive Oscilloscope Equipment I measured a 57 Amp draw on the 12v rail, and I measured a very nice, small ripple the whole time, this PSU should be stabil enough for a strong CPU / GPU with a hard Overclock without issues, only time will tell if it breaks down any after further torture. They changed my name on here again, lol, it used to me Mr. J, before that GmsCool, I prefer GmsCool as it was in the EggXpert Forums.
Very solid rig.
Pros: Nice thick material, not going to get a paper-cut working inside this case. PSU draws air externally and is filtered and vents externally to keep the case cool. Plenty of room for fans, with SLI I will use them all. Unlike most water cooling cases I have seen / bought over the years, the claimed radiators will not only fit, but you will not have to make sacrifices to have them. Quietest case I have ever owned, but the only one claiming to be. ROB Controller can be controlled be remote, or by the MB, I'm letting my Gigabyte Designare MB control it and it works great. Case has a TON of room in this layout. and makes cable management actually possible if you are like me and have 2 x RAID5's a Hybrid SSD for files and 2 x SSD's for your OS (soon to be an M2)
Cons: Magnetic PSU cover is pretty pointless as it does not have a side window, kind of a m00t point. Not sure I like the front magnetic access cover. If it stays off as much as it is not the kids may end up destroying it, lol.
Overall Review: Overall quality is great, I couldn't even tell it was made in China until I found its instruction booklet. My old case was a CM Stacker I bought 13 years ago. Power button went bad and was not replaceable. This case is maybe 30Db quieter compared to it, witch was an open, but filtered case. I didn't have any issues with the length of my PSU wires, my 13 year old Corsair 750TX PSU has some pretty long wires on it. Case temperatures under full load are about 7°F higher, nothing overheats. Rig is an I770K OC'd, Two GPU's in SLI and a ton of HDD's because my gaming rig is also my Home entertainment storage.
