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

5 out of 5 eggs The best of the best for a fair price 02/01/2017

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

Pros: I am always perplexed that regular wifi routers cannot hold a signal thru these South Florida Hurricane enforced walls.
I have 2 ac1200 computers and unfortunately 2 I also have 2 wifi C's

This router is better than any combo modem/router you can get from an internet provider.
And is a must for Online gamers.
AC technology is one of the best computers upgrades you can make.
It is almost equal to a SSD upgrade.
Linksys doesnt disappoint.
I never had a NO connectivity issues of any type in over a month,not a single drop out!
I use wifi exclusively ,and get more than my rated speed upload and download.
Linksys EA7300 gives me the same speed as a lan connection .I love it!

Cons: The only con would be the manual , which should be as high end as the hardware itself.
And as you know ,all system builders... look at the manual first

Other Thoughts: USB 3.0 is up most and required.
3 antennas for optimal performance. I've seen 6 antennas but thats overkill.
Zero slowdowns and drop outs. Thats AC , everyone should upgrade!!!
It is the same as as Lan... I love ac wireless routers esp the rolls royce of them all.

Ac is the way to go ,especially if your hardware can support it.

Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 500GB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Amazing Speed and Fast Boots, Tons of Storage nothing less than a 5 star rating 01/31/2017

This review is from: Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 500GB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Notebooks / Laptops Internal Hard Drive ST500LX025

Pros: Seagate FireCuda is a 1/2 tb drive with flash memory,and something you just don't find much anymore. A 5 YEAR WARRANTY!
A 5 year warranty mean that Seagate has the up most confidence in its FireCuda lineup.

I have been using a Seagate Momentus XT 500 GB 2.5 Inch Solid State Hybrid Drive for 3 years in a low end 2011 laptop.
And i really can't tell much difference between the Momentus XT and a SSD.
Basically The Seagate Hybrid saves me from buying a new laptop!
But after a month of swapping out the Momentus XT with this FireCuda and giving the flash memory a chance to know exactly what i use this laptop for.. I.E ,web browser ans Roku streamer.
It is fast ,very fast ..But
I can't see an increase over Seagates Momentus XT 500 gb drive. other than bragging "This is a FireCuda"
I am more than satisfied that the FireCuda is a subtle upgrade from SSHD drives from previous generations.Tho only slightly.

It is not a SSD ,but who wants to put a 500 gb SSD in your families streaming only laptop.
To tell the truth , I also have an Alienware laptop and other than playing the latest and greatest games ,there is no difference.

This boots Windows 7 in 17 seconds and everything including the internet is ready to go!
Hulu,Roku it is up and ready. And you will not get this will a regular platter hard drive!

Cons: I wish it came with a nice Sata 2 - Sata 3 cable.
If I am Seagate and selling an top of the line drive ,
I would supply the Sata cable , it would eliminate some negative reviews.
Basically it would be akin to buying audiophile speakers and using cheap speaker wires.

Also this is not as fast as the desktop FireCuda version.
The desktop version is WOW! You have to use the desktop version as a boot drive! Just AWESOME!

Other Thoughts: Crystal Disk reports both read/write speeds just shy of 160 MB/s. And over time the FireCuda keeps learning which programs are to be cached more often as i use them ,and the speed of will only increase.

Just a reminder, you DO need to defrag a Hybrid drive just like any platter drive.

If you need speed and are a hardcore gamer and do not need huge amounts of hard disk space, go with a SSD. If you need to have a drive that is 500 mb or greater in size, and want fast boot times & with speed benefits, then a hybrid drive is going to be your best choice.

The Seagate FireCuda is just an uptick over Seagates previous generations of Hybrid Drives.
But we are talking about Seagates cutting edge sshd's Not much to improve on.
That 5 year warranty just gives you so much confidence!

I spent my money and i was happy with my choice .
And i use my cheap emachines laptop ,like i would use my Alienware for 99 % of the time.
BOTTOM LINE : OTHER THAN GAMING ..HARDLY ANY DIFFERENCE.

5 out of 5 eggs Half price for the same unit 01/12/2017

This review is from: Drive Medical Power Neb Ultra Nebulizer Model 18080

Pros: Red tape plus problems getting this unit thru insurance.
New egg is just click and ship
Nebulizer is the same as what you would getfrom a medical supply store
If fact its the same model!

Cons: No cons at all

Other Thoughts: Wow Newegg is just as awesome on medical supplies as computer parts.
Thank you Newegg for doing what the pharmacies could not do.

The filters cost 1/2 online of the whole unit cost on Newegg , a no brainer!
