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

4 out of 5 eggs Fully customizable and ergonomic! 02/21/2017

This review is from: Corsair Gaming SCIMITAR PRO RGB Gaming Mouse, Backlit RGB LED, 16000 DPI, Black Side Panel, Optical

Pros: Great ergonomics – ring finger rest is great for long term use
CUE software is good – customization of all kinds is possible – from lighting to macros/keystrokes for a variety of use cases (even for not gaming)
Capable of very high dpi and is easily adjusted
Center wheel scrolling is just right
All buttons have just the right amount of feedback to them
Great braided wire
Just the right weight (for me)
I have another Corsair mouse (M65 Pro) and it has held up remarkably well, I expect this mouse to be no different

Cons: Takes some getting used to with the 12 side buttons – can sometimes be hard in the middle of a moment to figure out which button your thumb is on. Some kind of raised notch for orientation would be nice.
The last row of the 12 buttons is a bit of a reach (for my thumb anyway, it's hard to press a smaller button where my thumb bends at)
No dedicated forward/back buttons (can be accomplished in CUE software though)
CUE software can occasionally forget settings (only happened to me once)
Cannot adjust the weight if that matters to you

Other Thoughts: This is a love it or not kind of mouse. If you can get used to the software this mouse delivers.

Linksys CM3024 DOCSIS 3.0 (24 x 8) Cable Modem
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Great modem, Simple install 12/06/2016

This review is from: Linksys CM3024 DOCSIS 3.0 (24 x 8) Cable Modem

Pros: Futureproof to a degree – 24 downstream channels that can almost achieve gigabit speed (960 Mbps) where many of the fastest speeds in many areas are 1/10th of that capability.
Easy to install (depending on your ISP)
May reduce service costs for people paying rental fees (see other thoughts)
Passively cooled and well cooled as the sides are vented across the entire surface area
LEDs aren’t overly bright
Certified for use by “the big 3” (Comcast/Xfinity, TWC/Charter, COX)

Cons: No built-in router/wireless functionality
It is a bit bigger than my old modem.
Says “up to 960 Mbps” on the box, yet rated only for “a maximum of 100/300 Mbps of service.”

Other Thoughts: Check with your ISP before purchasing for compatibility if your ISP isn’t one of the big 3. Some ISPs require their modem (by rental or full purchase) as part of the terms and conditions of service.
Your ISP may refuse support to folks who have their own modem.
Installation can be easy or difficult depending on your ISP – I have Charter. For my install, all I needed to do was connect to the modem directly to my computer and it took me to the Charter modem install page. From there, I had to enter my account number along with my previous modem MAC address. After that, I rebooted the modem and have been connected ever since. The process took 3 minutes. I would highly recommend this modem, especially if it saves someone from modem rental fees.

TP-Link RE590T AC1900 Touch Screen Wi-Fi Range Extender
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Great extender! ...but it's big 08/13/2016

This review is from: TP-Link RE590T AC1900 Touch Screen Wi-Fi Range Extender

Pros: Outstanding range
Great touchscreen controls
Settings and status can be set and seen through Tether app
Easy setup – Using the touchscreen setup I had the RE590T setup in less than a minute.
First router/extender I've not had to enter a web interface for any reason - and that method of setup does seem a bit antiquated.

Cons: It’s very large. Even with the clock screensaver I wouldn’t want this large piece of electronics out in the open or mounted to a wall – say in a hallway.
It can’t be configured as a wireless ap – it’s a range extender only. I was hoping to run some cat 5e some distance away to provide maximum performance to the other side of my home. No dice. Good thing the signal output is strong.
Touchscreen is great, but has some lag. It can also be a bit of a pain to input passwords if you have large fingertips (due to the screen size). Perhaps I’m just spoiled from having large, very fast touch devices. It’s very functional even having said that.

Other Thoughts: This range extender is at the top of the list of extenders I’ve tested for signal range and throughput. This does come at a cost of the sheer size of the device. The touchscreen is wonderfully implemented, and the setup is as painless as it gets. If the size won’t bother you, this is a great extender to get.
