Eero Review (2nd Gen, 2017)

The Next Generation

When Eero launched last year, it helped drive a revolutionary shift in the WiFi router market. Unlike the traditional WiFi router which was complicated to configure and manage for the average user, Eero wanted to create something that was easy to setup, easy to manage and could provide reliable whole home WiFi coverage no matter the size of the home. For the most part, Eero achieved its goal.

Now that it’s a bit more than year later, Eero has revealed the 2nd Generation Eero. Rather than a major redesign, the 2nd Generation Eero focuses on improving on the first generation product while simultaneously launching lower powered wall mounted node [...]

Review: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-04 Chassis

Introduction

Corsair recently updated their budget case lineup with the new Carbide SPEC-04, the successor to the Carbide SPEC-03. The Carbide SPEC-04 brings an overhauled design and some extra features yet maintain its budget price point.

For our review today, we received the Corsair Carbide SPEC-04 in black however, it will also come in red and yellow as well.

Netgear Expands Orbi Mesh Wi-Fi Lineup with New Kits, Lower Entry Pricepoint

Last year, Netgear introduced the Orbi, which is one of the best mesh Wi-Fi networking systems on the market. Featuring a 4×4 MU-MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi dedicated backhaul, it was the fastest home mesh Wi-Fi system we’ve tested to date, but due to its high cost, it wasn’t accessible to those who weren’t interested in spending $400 on a Wi-Fi system.

In order to bring the Orbi to a wider audience, Netgear is expanding the Orbi lineup with two new Orbi mesh Wi-Fi kits, the RBK30 and RBK40 priced at $299.99 and $349.99 respectively.

In order to lower the pricepoint for the RBK30 and RBK 40, both are AC2200 systems featuring a 2×2 [...]
