This review is from: TP-LINK Touch P5 Wireless AC1900 Touch Screen Gigabit Router
Pros: Sleek design, touchscreen is a HUGE plus, great performance
Cons: I honestly don't see any cons with this device
Other Thoughts: I think TP-Link has THE perfect device on their hands. By adding a touchscreen, device setup is SIGNIFICANTLY simplified.
When you first boot up the router, you actually adjust the settings on the touch screen itself. You don't understand how much this simplifies things. For the average user, it may be tedious and bothersome to go into the router settings to adjust the name and password accordingly. So this works very well. You can adjust almost everything- including what channels you want the band to be on as well as setting up guest wifi access.
If you thought the touchscreen was the best thing about the device, you are in for a treat. The performance is stellar. I have this device in the 2nd floor of my home. I can max out my home internet in the basement (110Mbps) on the 5GHz band. A little less (80Mbps) on 2.4GHz. I have not encountered any performance issues whatsoever. Accessing the router setting through a browser is nice too. TP link has a very clean and modern UI that is pleasing to the eye.
Additional bonuses include being able to set up a print server. You can take a regular USB printer and connect it to this router for centralized printing. No more having to go find the printer and hook it up. It is a great modern convenience. For the average user, it explains things nicely.
With great performance, ease of use, and a refined UI, I cannot recommend this router enough. I would give it 6 eggs if I could- it's that good. I know personally if anyone I know is in need of a new router, I will recommend this without hesitation.
Pros: No messy wires running across the home, good performance, easy to use, surprisingly good range
Other Thoughts: This device is great! I currently have LAN wires running across the home and I've been meaning to find a good solution to this. We have so many devices, it cripples even the best wireless routers we can find. Our cable modem and router are located on the 2nd floor but my computer is located in the basement. I was surprised that the two devices could talk to each other- despite being that far apart.
Performance is a little lower than expected. I am seeingabout 70-80Mbps while my wireless can reach 110Mbps easily. But there isn't a picture perfect solution to everything. It's not wireless which can drop off randomly and it increases safety by eliminating open wires. I do notice on occasion the random lag spike- probably due to the circuit line quality. But it doesn't happen often and the performance is solid. I have yet to add more PoE adapters but definitely plan on doing so.
If you've been looking at using PoE in your home I highly recommend this product!
This review is from: Tiger Micom Rice Cooker with Tacook JBV-A10U
Pros: Very reasonable price, makes great rice, does not feel cheap
Cons: No cons!
Other Thoughts: Could not ask for more from a basic rice cooker. I was very surprised because it does not feel cheap at all. Not having an LCD screen took some time getting used to, but I prefer the 4 large buttons. The cooker does turn itself off after awhile which is nice. Highly recommended.READ FULL REVIEW
