This cable's as good as a $200 cable

Nippon Labs HDMI-HR-6 6 ft. HDMI 2.0 Male to Male Ultra High Speed Cable with Ethernet Channel, Black
Nippon Labs HDMI-HR-6 6 ft. HDMI 2.0 Male to Male Ultra High Speed Cable with Ethernet Channel, Black

Pros: I don't understand why someone would pay over $100 for the same features in a cable, as this one has from Nippon. When I shopped at a retail store (HH Gregg), and the manager told me that his HDMI cables each cost over $200, I asked him why - meanwhile I'm thinking, what an idiot. Truthfully, if you research, and do your homework about HDMI, you will find as I did that the $6 cable will do what the $100 will do. I did an experiment: I bought the $200 cable and tested it against this $6 cable with borrowed frequency monitoring equipment from a fellow geek, and got the same results. This cable is top of the line.

Cons: none

Overall Review: What I have found during my research: HDMI cables 6 feet or less work best. Most HDMI components will never use more than 10.2 Gbps, so buying a cable that is rated for 21 Gbps seems rediculas. Features to look for: Consumer electronics control support (CEC), audio return channel (ARC), ehternet channel, 4k x 2k resolution support, full 3D support, 10.2 Gbps or more, and look for some type of testing or certification. This cable has all that for a great price. By the way, I returned the $200 cable.

Pros: It looks good. Universal cables.

Cons: I should have known better than to buy something that's made in China. Of course it didn't work. It did nothing. The directions are useless.

EA8300

Linksys EA8300 Max-Stream AC2200 Tri-Band MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Router
Linksys EA8300 Max-Stream AC2200 Tri-Band MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Router

Pros: Had this for a month or 2 now. Super fast and very stable out of the box. Easy to setup. The phone app is useful to adjust traffic and such. I get 5 bars of signal strength anywhere in the house and in the yard. Currently 18 devices connected at once and no buffering or lag. No lag in gaming either. What sold me on this model was the simultaneous bidirectional wireless traffic and it's the latest AC wireless standard. Also has a quad core processor with 3 sub processors.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I recommend this.

SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X 8GB GDDR5 PCI-E Video Card Tri-X OC Version (UEFI) 100361-8GVXSR

Pros: ~200 fps on the highest settings in COD AW. 8GB of RAM instead of 4. The center fan spins for 2D applications and they all spin for 3D games and applications. Stays cool when heavily used.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Rig: ASRock X99X Killer, 16GB G.Skill DDR4 2400, Core i7-5820K, Samsung Evo 3D 1TB SSD, EVGA 1200 watt PS.

Pros: Plenty of room in this case for everything! I love the SATA dock built into the top of the case. Very well thought out and good build quality. I like the HD slots the way they are; you don't have to dismantle the entire front of the case to install hard drives. Great price for the size and features you get. The case is wide enough to handle the tallest CPU coolers.

Cons: None

Pros: The best thing about this cooler, besides having the lowest temps of any other cooler, is that I don't have to remove my MB to install it. There is no back plate to install under the MB. The MB is an ASRock X99X Killer.

Cons: None

Solid metal POE switch

Works right out of the box. Handles any device connected to it. Powers IP desk phones and cameras. Great price. Will purchase another when we need one.
