Corsair Gaming K55 RGB Keyboard, Backlit RGB LED
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Solid keyboard for good price with some bells and whistles 02/07/2017

This review is from: Corsair Gaming K55 RGB Keyboard, Backlit RGB LED

Pros: Keys are firm for a membrane keyboard.
Construction feels sturdy.
Macro features.

Cons: Media keys not backlit.
Wrist wrest has questionable durability.
Software could be more refined.

Other Thoughts: For a membrane keyboard, it feels really good. The keystroke is maybe a little slower than some gaming keyboards but not an issue for me. Lighting options are not very robust but acceptable at this price point. Seems like a good investment that will last. The software was not best or easiest to use but you can get through it.


4 out of 5 eggs Decent but not for every application. 11/23/2016

This review is from: Belkin F7C027fc WeMo Switch, Operates over Wi-Fi/mobile internet, turn electronics on or off

Pros: Cheap.
Doesn't require a smart hub.
Works with Echo.

Cons: Setup is awkward using the WeMo app.
Does not integrate to samsung smartthings hub.
On/Off button does not work until unit is configured.
Large, ok on wall but uses too much space on a power strip.

Other Thoughts: Had trouble on a Nexus 6P, could not get the WeMo app to see the unit even after connecting to it's SSID. Worked on several other android devices though.
Setup requires joining it's SSID, instructions were unclear, app is 'clunky'.
Alexa found the unit without any additional setup so that was nice but it would be even better if the smartthings hub saw it and could automate it.

TP-Link TL-PA8010 KIT AV1200 Gigabit Powerline Starter Kit
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Works Great! Improved speed and ping. 11/10/2016

This review is from: TP-Link TL-PA8010 KIT AV1200 Gigabit Powerline Starter Kit

Pros: Easy installation.
Faster speed than WiFi.
Lower ping times than WiFi.
More consistent than WiFi.
Price, cheaper than fancy WiFi cards and routers.

Cons: Bulky, uses up outlet.

Other Thoughts: I had purchased a WiFi card with external high gain antennas to try and get consistent performance from my router in the basement. I was never happy with the results. This powerline kit has given me double the bandwidth, 40Mb/s to 80Mb/s and dropped my ping from 44ms to 14ms. Fantastic! Connection does not drop out, very happy. This is in a townhouse going from basement to second floor.
