Bleeding Edge TV 550: Linksys WRT1900AC 802.11ac Wi-Fi Router Review

I give you a look at one of the best routers on the market in the Linksys WRT1900ac in this episode. This is a fast router that supports 802.11ac speeds, which is up to 4.3x faster than 802.11n wifi. This router has simultaneous dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz antennas, and a dual core CPU that promotes high speed data processing.

The cool thing about the WRT AC1900 is that it is open source-ready. This means you can install packages like DD-WRT and OpenWRT and it will be officially supported. External antennas round this one out, and they can be removed and swapped out for larger, more powerful antennas as well!

You can pick up the Linksys WRT1900AC now!

Unboxing Live 174: Amiibo Retro 3-Pack (Duck Hunt, R.O.B., Mr. Game & Watch)

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Features, Toys, Video Games, Videocasts

It's time for an amiibo blast from the past with the Retro 3-Pack! Included in this set are Duck Hunt (the dog with the duck flying above), Mr. Game and Watch (the predecessor to the Game Boy), and R.O.B. (the robot peripheral for the original NES Nintendo Entertainment System.)

I give you an up-close look at each of these old school amiibo characters, which work great with Super Smash Bros U and 3DS! Let me know your thoughts in the comments - I thought Mr. Game and Watch was pretty cool the way you could change his pose, and the detail in R.O.B. was awesome.

Unboxing Live 173: iPhone 6S Launch and Unboxing

Apple has eliminated most of the fun from Apple Store iPhone launches! In this episode, I am waiting for the iPhone 6S to launch at the Alderwood Mall Apple Store. Typically, there are hundreds of people all camped out, waiting in line, and generally switching between having a great time and hating life depending on the temperature and the rain. This year? For the vase majority of the night it was 3 people. THREE PEOPLE! I was the third to arrive, getting there at 8:00PM the night before launch - last year by then there were 80 people in line. The next person didn't arrive until about 4:30am - 8.5 hours later. I do finally get my hands on the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, and bring you an unboxing of the device as well.

You can order the new Apple iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus now.

Unboxing Live 167: Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Features, PC, Peripherals, Videocasts

If you need an insanely fast external SSD drive for your Mac or PC, then look no further than the Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+. Despite the name, you can use this drive with either Thunderbolt or USB 3.0, and since it is an SSD with no moving parts, it's ridiculous fast with read and write speeds. I use it to do video editing directly off of for Final Cut Pro X, and it never skips a beat.
