Pros: Quick to setup
Cons: No significant throughput increase while on the extender at a great distance from your primary AP.
Other Thoughts: I set this device up in approximately 10 minutes including taking it out of the box. I placed it approximately 50 feet away from my AP in a part of the house where wireless starts getting drown out by walls etc. This device boosts the signal, however it doesn't improve throughput much. I'm able to get about 2 or 3 Mbit/s improved speed, and a much higher signal, but I'm not certain that it is worth the price of admission. Perhaps the greatest benefit is that the repeated signal off of this device penetrates my garage area and I can now use my wireless there without getting the random disconnects.
So if you're looking to increase throughput at a long distance from your AP then your best bet is still CAT6 in the wall to a dedicated AP. However if you just need to boost signal so devices can connect for low bandwidth applications then this is your device.
This review is from: MTX StreetAudio iX1 On-Ear Acoustic Monitor Headphones - Black
Pros: 1. Solid build quality.
2. Excellent bass response.
3. Excellent sound quality.
4. Aesthetically pleasing.
Cons: *See Below.
Other Thoughts: Four months ago I reviewed and gave these a 2 star rating because of a very tight fit. After being persistent with these and allowing the foam of the cans to break in, I'm adjusting my review up to 4 stars.
They still get uncomfortable, however I'm able to wear them for approximately four or five hours now. This is about the maximum time I'd ever wear them.
Give them time to break in and they're just about perfect, even considering the price. They have a premium feel and sound. For my at-home listening experience these have become my go-to cans.
This review is from: Linksys E900-NP Wireless-N300 Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n
Pros: Quick to setup. Easy to use interface. Consistent performance.
Cons: Unremarkable in every way. Trouble keeping up with higher bandwidth connections. Not for power users.
Other Thoughts: The very best thing about this router is that it was easy to set it up. Out of the box and operational took about 10 minutes. However, once it was online I found that the performance with a 50mbit down and 5mbit up connection was about a tenth of the rated capacity. Remove this router and install the original and performance went back up, so it wasn't a period of poor performance.
I must say that where this router really shines is in a location where high bandwidth isn't a concern, but ease of use is. Then it is really in its element.
For performance testing I connected my phone, tablet and laptop at the same time and started a few file transfers. Again, performance wasn't stellar. The connection would burst to 100Mbit and then average out to about 20Mbit.
When used as a wireless bridge for a PS3 the performance was much more consistent. Where a PS3 cannot stream BluRay files on its native wireless connection, with this in place it can easily do so.
Overall don't expect this router to set your world on fire and you'll be happy. Power users, however, should look elsewhere for their router fix.
