Pros: +In my opinion this mouse is very nice looking. The lighting on it is attractive and it’s not just for looks, the lighting visually lets you know what profile you have loaded, along with other settings like dpi. Without the lighting you would have no idea what profile is loaded. The multi color lights also just make your setup look all the more classy in my opinion.
+You can set up your own mouse profiles. There is the default profile plus any more that you can create where you can configure every key, lighting, dpi, etc. for the mouse. Each profile lets you configure 12 individual side buttons for that profile, which would be good for mmorpg games. It might be hard to feel which button you are pushing, although there is a dimple on two of the buttons, and two of the columns have a patterned texture to them.
+You can do a manual calibration of the mouse for use on your mouse pad in the CUE software, although I’m not sure how necessary that really is.
+16000dpi – That’s the most I have had on any mouse I have owned.
+The mouse glides very smoothly for me, and feels good in my small hands and has a good weight. The wheel scrolling feels great also, and is very similar to my Logitech G602 wireless mouse.
+Good match to go with the Corsair RGB Mechanical Keyboards as both the mouse and keyboard are configured in the same software.
Cons: -The packaging is nice but it is literally like a puzzle trying to open without ripping the cardboard box up.
-It’s not wireless but some prefer wired mice. My Logitech wireless G602 is a great gaming mouse though, so I know wireless can work very well.
-The mouse does not come with any pre-configured setting for the standard forward and back browsing buttons that you find on most mice. In my opinion there is no excuse for this, unless I am just not seeing it. You will need to manually create/add it yourself in the CUE software (Corsair Utility Engine). It’s found in the “Remap Key” section, then click on the dropdown list and choose the “Mouse Button” key function, and you will find the forward/back options to add in there.
-I took a star off star off just due to frustration trying to figure out the Corsair CUE software for the mouse. It takes time to finally get any idea of how the software works, it’s not very user friendly. I still have yet to find the save button. I have seen it on some screens and other screens it seems to have disappeared.
In my opinion there NEEDS to be some kind of built in demo tutorial walking you step by step setting up some keys. And by step by step I also mean highlighting onscreen where to click next. To me that would help a person greatly.
Other Thoughts: Overall I like this mouse a lot, it’s the configuration CUE software that isn’t user friendly. You need to download it from their website.
The mouse itself is great. The software does allow you go set just about anything on the mouse. I have never had a mouse this configurable from button settings to any color you could possibly want, which all probably adds to the confusing software. Every part of the mouse is incredibly configurable for color. The color really makes the mouse stand out.
For the mouse itself it definitely gets 5 stars from me, but the software makes it 4 stars. Just my opinion though.
Pros: +Sharp 1080p resolution. I am very impressed with the sharpness, as it’s much better than another security camera brand that I had tried earlier this year.
+Night vision. The night vision on this is pretty good also, not as sharp as daylight but still good, and it seems to light up a room fairly well. If you turn off the infrared light option, then it will display color, only it will add more noise to the picture.
+SD Card storage up to 128GB. It comes with a 16GB Sandisk card, which the company says should provide about 30 days of recording under normal use (1 hour per day).
+The Motion detection, auto captures what is happening. It has worked very well for me. In the Android app you can set how sensitive you want the motion detection to be. You can also set whether you want to be notified when motion is detected. It will give a message along with a button to click on the video to view it.
+There is a two way talk option when viewing live video. The talk actually works unlike another brand camera I tried where the voice was all garbled.
+It can be mounted to metal with the strong magnet that is built into the camera base. It also comes with a metal plate which can be mounted to a wall so the magnet can stick to it.
+The installation was very easy to do. Basically you install their EZVIZ app on your phone and it instructs you step by step what to do. There is also a help section in their app which describes a lot.
Cons: -This is an indoor only security camera.
-A thief could just take the camera and you would lose the recording unless you have the EZVIZ cloud storage, which costs more money. Although this camera is so small you may be able to hide it fairly well. They do have another storage option that is an external drive of their own that they sell, but I don’t own that and have no clue how that operates. Maybe that can be stored in another location.
-I did have a little problem removing the micro sd card. It has the spring loaded insert/removal but it didn’t pop out far enough for me to grab onto, so I had to use a tweezers.
I don’t know if this is a negative or not, but one spot on the back of the camera sometimes reached 140°F for a temperature.
Other Thoughts: I definitely am happy with this camera. The screen resolution is very good and the night vision seems good to me, at least compared to some other cameras I tried. To me its biggest negative would be it not allowing you to use your own cloud storage, but at least it allows you to use your own micro sd card, up to 128gb, which some other cameras do not.
It allows you 3 choices for storage. 1) The built in storage on the micro sd card. 2) using an external usb 1tb drive called the “EZVIZ Vault” that they make which auto connects to all the EZVIZ cameras you have in your house which looks interesting to me. 3) By using their own Cloud storage, but that has a fee for it use.
I tried it in a room the opposite end of our house the 5ghz band, and was still getting a good signal. My router showed it connected at 58Mbps at that location. If I try it in the same room as the router (Asus RT-88U) then I get a 433Mbps connection.
The build quality seems very good to me. It has a nice weight to it, and its much smaller than I expected it would be. It feels like a quality product, along with the nice packaging. From my testing it was drawing about 4.6w of power.
You can also adjust the angle of this camera, but the viewing width of the camera itself is very good in my opinion. Their EZVIZ Android app has some negative reviews but I found the app to work good for me, although they did just put out an update recently.
I like the camera enough that I give it 5 stars. Although I totally understand some of the negative reviews about it due to the lack of allowing you to use your own cloud storage.
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WPA4220 N300 AV500 Wi-Fi Powerline Add-On Extender
Pros: +This Range Extender lets you connect up to two wired devices to the bottom of it. It also has its own wireless signal that it puts out. You can also turn off the wireless signal if you want.
+The added wifi on this wired Extender is nice to have in my opinion for rooms that have weak and unstable Wi-Fi signals. You should get an excellent signal in the same room as this Extender, although it still sends that signal back to the router through the house wiring. The wireless signal is sends out won't have the range and bandwidth to handle too much like a router can.
+This Extender is also nice if you have like a TV or DVD player that doesn't have wireless but supports a wired connection. We have a Blu-Ray player and TV that both don't support wireless and this works great for that.
Cons: -Depending on your house wiring you may not get as good of speed.
The wireless range will be reduced some just by the fact that this extender has to plug into a wall plug which is close to floor level. Although unlike some other reviews here, I am getting fairly decent wireless range out of it.
Other Thoughts: I originally made a mistake when I picked this device to add to my network. For some reason I thought this was the "Kit" that came with the two adapters, but it’s not, this is only for one Extender. Fortunately I still have my previous adapter, and I read that this TP-Link can be added to any network, even if they are not the TP-Link brand. So I added this to my previous Trendnet Powerline 200 Adapter (model: TPL-308E2K) and it seems to be working fine. My Trendnet adapter though is rated for a lower speed at 200, where this TP-Link Extender is rated at 300.
The benchmarks I did below might be faster if I had the KIT so that both adapters were the same speed. I am surprised that I am getting a faster transfer speed connected to the wireless on this device than I do when connected wireless directly to my router in the same room. I did the test several times too with the same result, but maybe my laptop just doesn’t like my router as much.
This test was done between my Desktop computer (wired), connected to my Laptop Computer (wired and wireless).
