Rosewill RNX-N600UBE Wireless N600 Dual Band USB 2.0 Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs N300, not N600 but still great 02/15/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N600UBE Wireless N600 Dual Band USB 2.0 Adapter

Pros: - A good solution for those who are out of internal PCI slots.
- Can be mounted anywhere (I mounted mine with double-back tape to my window)
- Because it's USB, you can get an extension cord to move it further away from your computer
- Performs well and is stable after one month.
- Grabs 2.4 and 5Ghz signals well. No drops even under stress (speedtests, bittorrents)

Cons: not an N600 (300+ 300) adapter. It will only do 300mbs at one time. Not that you'll ever see that kind of theoretical throughput, but it wouild be nice to be able to bond the channels for a little more "umph."

Rosewill RNX-N300RT, Wireless N300 Wi-Fi Router, IEEE 802.11b/11g/11n, Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates, 2x 5dBi Fixed Antennas, DD-WRT Open Source Support

Pros: I am somewhat of a WiFi junky, having played with every open source firmware under the Sun, not to mention various consumer router platforms. And I have to say, this N300RT is a little beastie. It's solid, has a strong signal and is quite stable. To top it off, it has plenty of memory and 5dBi antennas.

Cons: None really for the price. Don't go comparing this to more muscular routers like the RT-N16.

Other Thoughts: Repeater notes for those who are complaining that this device can not be used as a Repeater.

It *can* be used as a repeater, but the Atheros chipset is different than Broadcom ones. Simply install the most stable DD-WRT firmware, and configure the Wireless Mode as a Client Bridge, and then configure a separate (and different) virtual interface for remote clients to connect to. Done.

Also note that the Channel Width MUST be set to 20Mhz if using Client Bridge Mode, else the router will poop out and require a reset.

CM Storm QuickFire Pro - Full Size Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Brown Switches and Backlit Gaming Keys
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Typing this review right now on the CM Storm, FYI.

A long time ago, longer than I'd care to admit, I used to use a mechanical keyboard on my trusty Mac IIsi. Since then, I've used a variety of bubble/membrane ones and never really complained.

Anyhow, I decided to take the jump and get a mechanical keyboard and the Cool Master seemed like a good deal. I am glad I purchased it, however it's not 100% everything I was looking for.

First off the keys are great. The Browns are simply perfect for those looking for a great typing experience. I spend a lot of my day typing, so this product is perfect. The "action" is literally perfect for someone who does a lot of writing. The layout is fine, although the geeky keyboard font was a little unconventional.

I am extremely pleased with this product.

Cons: It's not "big" enough. The keys are standard size, and the full layout is fine, but the actual keyboard could be a little bigger. Specifically, I would have loved to see a larger wrist wrest area.

Also, the back lighting is useless, even for a gamer. I just leave it off even when I play games, which is admittedly rare.

When hooking up the supplied USB cable (which is great), one must force the cable into the mini USB slot with a force that I would deem more than comfortable. also the location is a tad weird under the keyboard.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend to others. If Cooler master added a wrist pad and made the entire keyboard light up, it would be a 5.

I purchased an aftermarket foam wrist pad.
