EnGenius EAP1750H AC1750 802.11ac 3x3 Dual Band Gigabit Ceiling Mount Access Point/WDS

4 out of 5 eggs Solid performing Access Point 03/16/2015

This review is from: EnGenius EAP1750H AC1750 802.11ac 3x3 Dual Band Gigabit Ceiling Mount Access Point/WDS

Pros: + Solid Performance and range
+ Ceiling mount
+ POE
+ Good standard features
+ Inconspicuous looking

Cons: - Meh documentation
- UI could be improved
- Did exprerience some network anomolies

Other Thoughts: The EnGenius EAP1750H was tested in my 3 story home which has often proved problematic for most wireless routers, even high quality ones like my Netgear Nighthawk struggle to get all corners of the home with excellent connection. I actually mounted the EnGenius EAP1750H on my third floor in my laundry room, punching a hole through a adjoining small wall with my linen/network closet and have my primary wireless router on the first floor in my office. I also used a TPLink POE injector, since none was provided.

This is my second Engenius device, the first being a Engenius ESR600 which was a bit quirky, but worked well. The EAP1750H was similar in some respects with a somewhat dated feeling UI. Setup was not super straight forward, but I experience no real issues other than figuring out clicking "apply" trick to make my setting changes stick.

Once set up the performance was very solid. On my third floor, my daughters room which used to be a near dead spot with iffy coverage, now received excellent signal. We tested speeds with my wifes Dell 7348 laptop and saw very respectable 10+ MB/sec transfer speeds over 5Ghz AC band. Other rooms like my bedroom and bathroom saw similar speeds and signal quality. For giggles I even had my neighbor test the signal in his home and he also saw pretty solid signal strength on his top floor. Granted there is only about 30-40 feet between our homes.

My only performance issues that I noticed was with my Nexus 7, which on a few occasions would show that it had a excellent connection, but would require a wifi service restart (on the tablet, not the EnGenius) in order to actually process any network requests. Other than this one device however, the connections have thus far been pretty reliable.

I did not need to contact Engenius support, so I have no opinion on them. However, the product page on their website does provide documentation and the latest firmware.

Overall I am pretty pleased with the EAP1750H. It's offers good performance and features that should suit a large home or small business.

ASUS VN279Q Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: * Excellent 3 year warranty
* Super thin bezels
* Amazing black levels
* Solid color reproduction
* VESA mount
* Multiple inputs
* Great viewing angles

Cons: * Stand is a bit wobbly
* No DVI input

Other Thoughts: I bought the ASUS VN279Q to replace my old Dell 2407WFP which had served me well. First thing I noticed immediately is that the VA panel on the ASUS had excellent black levels, great viewing angles and almost no color shifting. I found that the STANDARD OSD setting with some slight adjustments made for a very pleasant picture. At first text looked pretty bad, but turning Vivid Pixel to 0 softened the text so it no longer looked like a pixelated mess. I imagine on a smaller panel that feature may be helpful but as it stands, 1080p on a 27" panel has a pretty low ppi.

Gaming has been a joy on the Asus. I have noticed no ghosting or significant input lag. Just avoid the GAME setting in the OSD as it looks horrible. Movies look excellent and thanks to such awesome black levels, it really is a much better experience than the sometimes greyish blacks you will often see on a TN or even IPS panel.

The stand does leave something to be desired, it is a little wobbly and is limited to tilt only. However the monitor does have a VESA mount and is priced appropriately as monitors with better featured stands typically cost a bit more

I like the fact that the monitor has 3 inputs, however I wish it traded the VGA for DVI. But at least Asus included a DVI to HDMI cable which also passes audio. Speaking of audio, do not expect great things from the speakers, which I will not use anyway, but they honestly do not sound very good. So if you care about monitor speakers, they could be a deterrent, I myself do not care.

Overall I am pleased with this purchase. It was on sale for around $200 at the time of purchase. At that price there is nothing for me that would warrant dragging it's score below a 5 egg.

Acer G257HL BMIDX Black 25
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: * Excellent Price and quality IPS panel ($150)
* Image quality is great
* 3 video inputs
* 3 year warranty
* Looks great with thin bezels
* Good viewing angles
* Solid for Gaming

Cons: * Stand only tilts
* No VESA mount

Other Thoughts: I purchased the Acer G257HL for my son a few weeks ago to replace a old 24" Samsung TN monitor that was almost 8 years old. Comparing the two next to each other is night and day. The color accuracy, black levels and lack of black light bleed of the Acer kills the old Samsung. The viewing angles are good and there is little color shifting on this panel. The default settings out of the box were quite good and required little fiddling to get where we wanted them. 25" is about the biggest you can go for 1080p and maintain solid clarity, I have a 27" Asus 1080p monitor and the pixel density really leaves something to be desired at that size.

I did not take any measurements, but lag and ghosting seemed pretty small to non existent and the panel offered a very enjoyable gaming experience. My son plays lots of FPS games and absolutely loves this monitor. Movies also look fantastic on it.

Aesthetically it looks great with very slim bezels. The only real knock is the somewhat cheap stand. It sits a little lower than I prefer and only tilts. There is no VESA mount, so there is limited options for fixing that complaint.

The Monitor comes with 3 video inputs, which is great for this price point and Acer offers a 3 year warranty which is solid as well. Overall I am very pleased. At $150 I give it 5 stars, but at $200 I'd give it 4 mostly because of the lack of a VESA mount since the stand is so limited.
