I do not hate Razer mice, I hate Razer lol.  Now 90% of quality mice are associated with "gaming", and as a result, purchasing a quality mouse costs more money.  (Same goes to other components).  Its cool that Razer and other big names have brought more awareness to the PC, but the gimmicky lights, decals, and 'technology' is annoying.

I've never had any problems with it at all.

 

This is something I would be for, and not against.  External USB devices are ideal for throughput and stability.  I have not seen any shielded internal adapters, and almost all negative reviews stem from the fact that their hardware is internal haha.

 

Let's all try doing this in command prompt:

ping [Router IP Address] -n 2000 -l 32000

 

Not exactly the best test on earth, but you can get a fairly reasonable idea of how well the throughput and stability of your WiFi connection. 

My router is dying unfortunately, but I must have had a golden amplifier.  I was setting 210mW but had no idea that would actually send ~750mW to the amplifier (which should have fried it quickly).  Had this enabled for years without hiccups, but with my amplifier on I get this:

 

 

After disabling the internal amp, I get an average of 24ms and 0 dropped packets using a Buffalo (g) router and my PC connected on the floor above.  I have an average throughput of 2MB/s for each client, which is about 17Mb/s using WPA2/AES encryption, and CTS-to-self.

 

Waiting for a reliable ac router to take the plunge.  None of my neighbors are on 5Ghz!  haha

 

 

For future reference, if possible, make sure to use a powerline ethernet adapter!  You can get a reliable 500Mb/s kit for $45 online!

Much better than WiFi for most people

Razor gear are not well built and are not reliable. Had gone through 6 DA's within a year and never again.

You too?  The mouse click on half the DA's I have used will frequently double/triple click or not respond at all.  Maybe people who buy Razer products are abusive?  XD

Don't Razer DA's use Omron switches?

 

I feel like it's not a problem with the switches because those are the most popular mouse switches of all time, but probably more of how Razer designed the rest of the mouse.

 

I think it was the Kinzu V2 or Kana V2 that has the S3090 sensor in it and Omron switches. IMO best mouse right now. Roccat Savu is pretty close, along with the Zowei eVo mice or the AM/FK mice (but they use Huano switches IIRC). Logitech G400s (and G400) seems to have QC problems.

This is awesome. I didn't check through the song catalog for the instruments yet.

Dayum, that did...absolutely nothing. Lol. For now that is.

 

My ISP offers multiple up and downstream channels. I had was wired to a pretty good channel from what it looks because I always get advertised speeds. My ISP also had one of their area 'unit boosters' right near my house, and so my signal and everything is good.

 

That's what I mean when I say that it didn't do anything. Obviously when schiit starts going down, is when that 6141 is gonna pull some weight, but for now....lol.

 

6141 indicator lights show its GO for upstream and downstream channel bonding support, and GO for Gigabit support. Hell yeah :D

 

And nothing happened still lol. 


I just purchased a refurbished 6180.  Has the 6141 improved your connection over time?

post #4628 of 6404

It's more "futureproof" and should live for a bit longer when DOCSIS 3.1 comes out for the US since it has 8 downstream channels and 4 upstream channels to bond to versus the usual, what I think is 4 down 1 up.

The difference between the two is that the 6180 uses a Broadcom chipset and the 6141 uses a TI. I have the 6180's bigger brother, the 6580. It has the benefit of a built in router. In my company the Broadcom chip modems tend to last longer before needing replaced.

Nope, same old. It's main uses are during times of poor connection and in future proofing as haiburi says below

 

Since it allows for combined streams, it will auto select best stream when Metrocast has trouble.

I can't wait 'till AMD reaches the Rx 6xx series and Nvidia sues them for copyright.

Why are 7970s still so expensive? I know that 7950s are over priced as hell because of miners but is that really influencing the 7970s as much as well? Even with the release of the new R9 280 whatever the price hasn't budged, I could sell my dual x for the same price I bought it for several years ago.
