This review is from: LINKSYS RE6500HG Dual Band Wireless AC Range Extender
Pros: Dual Band 2.4 and 5 Ghz channels
Worked with my dual band router without and extra steps
Set up was 2 minutes and easy.
4 Ports in case you want to wire a computer or other item and have it work thru extender.
Cons: None at this point.
Other Thoughts: Put this about 50 foot from regular router and 2 rooms away from patio when I have had 2 other range extenders and they didn't even help on patio. Waited about 1 minute for light to quit flashing and went thru set up on laptop it ran thru set up for 2.4 band first the right after picked up my 5. GHz and set it up in total the whole set up took less than 3 minutes.
First thing I did is go onto patio and what do you know I had signal the second thing I did was a speed test and I go 90 Mbps the same as I got when sitting on couch and connected just thru router. I was pretty amazed especially after owning 2 other range extenders that didn't work as good.
Next I went to back of yard about 150 feet from back door and patio speed decreased by about half but at 45 Mbps still is good enough to game off of. On the 2 other range extenders I own the first started dropping signal after 2 months so I would have to unplug it and do a reset to get it working again. This happened at least every two days so I took a chance and bought a different brand and it worked decent for about six months then started dropping. I would have to do pretty much the same as the first. The signal from other range extenders was good enough to open a web page slowly on patio but that was it. So this one actually does what it says so far and I have great signal even to my neighbors back yard. Is fun to sit and talk to neighbors and have my pad with me so I can open web pages and so them what I want to. This one cost double what I paid for the other but so far it works twenty times better than them and stronger signal.
I will update this review in about 3 to 5 months so I can see if it start dropping signal. If it doesn't drop then I have finally found one that truly extends the signal and is dependable.
Pros: 3 sped fan controller, side panel window. tool less hard drive design, Removable side panel with the USB 3.0 and audio jacks.
screws that don't come out all the way so no more lost screws. Instructions tell you the size of video card and CPU cooler you can use.
Cons: The two front fans are covered by half the case so you are only drawing in air thru half the front and to make it worse you can add two hard drives right behind the fans blocking most of the air. So you are just blowing air out the back unless you buy more fans for the top.
Other Thoughts: With all the dead space on one side they could of put a slim DVD player upright and had a better design. They could also put four holes in the side panel for the hot video cards made today. This is actually the third time writing this review and each time it kicks me back out to the sign in page then makes me start over so either they don't like one star reviews or the page is messing up. For the price you can get better airflow cases .READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: easy to set up
easy user interface.
Easy to contact support and they send you a link to right where you need to go for this camera.
Easy to hook to computer or ipad I had mine hooked to both.
Also able to use as a wifi extender.
Cons: way to much trouble and it never gets right.
Way to many false reports.
Spent to much time each day to get it to save color settings.
Other Thoughts: On auto you get good color but when it goes to night it is pitch black till you log into the user interface then set it day n night then save then back to auto. same thing happens in the morning. you have to log into setting the change it to day and night then save and back to auto.
If you leave it on day and night it is black and white and you really cant tell who it setting it off when it does get set off. Sends notifications to your email after setting sound and motion right out of 50 triggers only once did it get my dog in front yard. I ran many test and had friends and neighbors walk right up to it and around front yard.
Took way to many log ins to set it up right each day to get color then it didn't pick up all but one time. If you want something you can set and forget then check email once a day or two then this isn't a product I would buy.
