Corsair Gaming SCIMITAR PRO RGB Gaming Mouse, Backlit RGB LED, 16000 DPI, Yellow side panel, Optical
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Great performer with amazing athestics 01/18/2017

This review is from: Corsair Gaming SCIMITAR PRO RGB Gaming Mouse, Backlit RGB LED, 16000 DPI, Yellow side panel, Optical

Pros: The first thing you'll notice upon plugging this mouse in is the beautiful RGB lights! They're just very colorful, bright, and vibrant. All of which are fully customizable (including turning off) with numerous built-in effects, or from dozens of custom user made profiles online for Corsairs "Corsair Utility Engine" or CUE for short. (Download them from Corsairs website)
While I'm talking about CUE, you can also customize various aspects of the mouse from inside the software, from DPI sensitivity, button bindings, macros, polling rate, etc.
The side keypad both feels great, and is moveable to find the best position for each individual user.
Smooth mouse wheel
Good weight
Braided cable
Side Grip
Standard DPI switches you'd expect on any gaming mouse
While it's doubtful you'll need it, there is a 2 year warranty.

Cons: As others have already stated, there's nowhere to store the tool used to move the side keypad on the mouse. Unless you have a desk drawer, you're probably going to lose this tool over time. Would've been nice for Corsair to put a little slot underneath the mouse for the tool to slide into.

Other Thoughts: While all the extra side buttons on the keypad is a bit too much for RTS/FPS players and probably even most MOBA's. The keypad is perfect for MMO players. As for every other aspect of the mouse, it's perfect for everyone. I can easily recommend this mouse to any gamer!

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

5 out of 5 eggs Great router at a good price 12/05/2016

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

Pros: First, the router feels good and seems to have been built using quality materials.
The device is easy to unbox, setup and configure. Took me less than 5 minutes before everything was up and running.
The router's settings are simple to understand and navigate (there's also an App). Allowing less knowledgeable owners to easily name their network and change the password. For the more advanced users, Linksys has nearly every industry standard feature (listed in product description) you'd want to tinker with in your control panel.
As for performance, I had a great connection no matter if I was upstairs, or all the way down in the basement. (With the router placed upstairs in a 3 room house). Never once did I experience a lost of connection, or data slowdown, even with multiple devices connected and streaming various services at the same time.
The router does get a tad warm, like any other router. However, Linksys has provided plenty of ventilation to keep it from getting too hot. I will still recommend placing it in a somewhat open location though, especially to ensure product longevity.

Cons: The 1 year warranty? While pretty much the same with other manufacturers, it's a little disheartening that Linksys doesn't vouch for their products beyond a year. It doesn't mean the router will break down after a year, but it would be nice to know that Linksys would replace their product should technical problems arise after a year of usage.

Other Thoughts: Overall, the Linksys EA7300 is a great device, and the price point is fairly competitive with others in its segment. I can definitely recommend this router to others, especially if found on sale!

TP-LINK TC-W7960 N300 DOCSIS 3.0 (8x4) Wireless Wi-Fi Cable Modem Router
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Great product to save rental fees with every month. 10/23/2016

This review is from: TP-LINK TC-W7960 N300 DOCSIS 3.0 (8x4) Wireless Wi-Fi Cable Modem Router

Pros: Very easy to install and setup.
Great looking device that has plenty of functionality to it. (4 Gigabit Eternet ports, WiFi, USB storage, etc)
Certified to work with Comcast, Time Warner, Cablevision, and more. (On internet plans up to 150MBps)
Has both Guest Network and Parental Control features, among other settings.
Reliable connection both wired and over WiFi, used for over a week with little issue. (See con)

Cons: No Wireless AC support. If you live in a crowded area like an apartment, not having wireless AC with 5Ghz support may provide some reliability problems.
Only supports internet plans up to 150MBps, which is kinda unfortunate when most companies are starting to finally use their mass profits to update Americas slow internet speeds. If you're like me and already have a connection faster than 150MBps, you will need a higher end modem to get your full usage out of your service.

Other Thoughts: If you have an internet plan at 150Mbps or slower, stop paying your monthly rental fees and buy your own modem now! Your cost savings each month will pay this thing off in no time!
