My girlfriend recently got a job at an electronics store. I was happy she found work, but it’s actually been weird because I’m kind of the tech guru of the two of us, and she’s been peppering me with questions about everything.
Apparently she gets paid mostly on commission, based on the merchandise she sells. She’s quick enough to know that gamers like to have the best things, so she targets spending time on the sales floor with them.
Last night she asked me what three things gamers consider when buying a gaming router (of course all gamers want the best router for gaming). Apparently she’s trying to come up with selling points of particular models that will appeal to the gaming crowd.
I actually had to stop and think about it, because I just use a router I got for Christmas one year from my parents. So I talked to other gamers before I could get back to her. It was clear to many that QOS settings, or Quality of Service settings were very important. Bandwidth was also very important.
There was debate on whether or not wired connections were necessary, and if a gaming router should have nongaming stuff attached, but I told her what I could and then went back to gaming. I’m glad she has a job, but it’s not my job.
