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

Pros: )really ease setup that took approx. 5 minutes. clicked on browser and linksys auto starts.
)easy to set wireless password.
)great signal strength! just as good as another name brand with 6 antennae at 3 times the price.
)no issues when setting up a home group through this router.
)no issues with our cell phones or book readers.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: no issues or roadblocks setting up a homegroup with this router.
i like testing worst case scenario; older laptop in wireless 45ft from router and through a basement floor pulling 3170MB of pics from a wired workstation and approx. 70ft of ethernet cable. i ending up getting 2.04MB/s transfer speeds which i think is excellent!

Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: >decent large capacity drive that is really quiet, vibration free and cool to the touch. This alone makes it worth it if you need the extra capacity and must run only one drive.
>5 year warranty.
>Seems fairly responsive.

Cons: <does not live up to claims that access times are 9.5 ms.

Other Thoughts: +test system i5 at 3GHz, 8 GB memory, high quality sata data cable.
+1863.0 GB capacity when installing w7.
+25 second boot time on w7 running mse anti-virus.
+6 second shutdown.
+reads are pretty weak on smaller sized file transfers
+results from as ssd benchmark;
seq. read = 118 MB/s seq. write = 185 MB/s
4k read = 0.6 MB/s 4k write = 1.2 MB/s
4k-64 read = 1.5 MB/s 4k-64 write = 1.1 MB/s
Access time read = 14.7 ms access time write = 20.8 ms
+results from atto disk benchmark;
0.5k read = 0.6 MB/s 0.5k write = 28.4 MB/s
4k read = 19.9 MB/s 4k write = 141.4 MB/s
16k read = 56.2 MB/s write = 215.0 MB/s
1M read = 138.8 MB/s write = 194.0 MB/s

Silicon Power 32GB Jewel J80 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP032GBUF3J80V1T)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs cool design and portable, says it waterproof. 09/29/2016

This review is from: Silicon Power 32GB Jewel J80 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP032GBUF3J80V1T)

Pros: supposedly waterproof and easy to attach to a keychain. cheap
decent read speed as ssd benchmark, sequential writes = 207.4 MB/s and confirmed good write performance using atto benchmark.

Cons: really slow writes for flaunting usb 3.0 on the top of the package. using atto benchmark the writes were; 1.6 MB/s for 4k file size test, 5.4 MB/s for 16k and maxed out at 20.9 MB/s for 512k. as ssd benchmark confirmed the dismal write speed = sequential write was 21.1 MB/s.

Other Thoughts: looks like a high failure rate but mine is still working
