This review is from: NETGEAR AC750 (EX6100) WiFi Range Extender-802.11ac Dual Band Gigabit
Pros: Setup typical of all Netgear products was extremely easy to complete. Save yourself time and needless traveling in house by using the same outlet during pairing to your router.
This extender is spec'd using the latest 802.11ac wireless networking standard making your purchase current for many years to come.. This Netgear AC750 extender plays nicely with both my TP-Link 1750 and D-Link AC750 routers which both broadcast using 802.11ac. I have my extender installed 2 flights downstairs in my home and this compact unobtrusive extender also serves as a night light when family members come down at night for the occasional midnight raids to the kitchen. Nice to know you can also configure this as either an extender or access point even though extender brings more value to the average home. Nicer to have than powerline adapters which require a minimum of 2 units in order to extend range of weak signals. Built-in gigabit RJ45 port is another added plus...while I haven't tried plugging in my NAS the Samsung blue-ray player streams perfectly with no lags whatsoever.
Cons: Downside of this unit is "EXT" extension is added to the broadcasting SSID which makes it slightly annoying when you transition from extender to router locations. Occasionally drops out but eventually recovers...I don't know if this is normal or if I have a defective unit ...time will tell.
Other Thoughts: Good to finally see that there are more and more 802.11ac products coming to market. Netgear while not the cheapest manufacturer does indeed put forth another quality product.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link Wireless AC750 Dual Band Cloud Router, 2x 5dBi Antennas (DIR-816L)
Pros: This D-Link dual band router is one of the smallest routers I have seen and I've tested many in the years I've been using the net. Support is top notch if you need service and typically support documentation and firmware updates are easily gotten from the D-Link web site. Set-up is fairly easy and plays very nicely with my recently acquired Samsung Smart TV. Netflix videos streams reliably but then again the TV is just a room over. Will test further when we temporarily move the TV downstairs when new carpets arrive. Google Nexus 10 tablet running 4.2.2 Kitkat o/s also plays nicely with this router but then there aren't too many ac devices on the market as yet which capitalize on the newer 802.11ac technology
Cons: I would have gladly paid more had there been similar models with either a cable or dsl modem built into the same unit otherwise this router has to site on top of my Verizon DSL modem. USB port appears to be 2.0 versus the more current 3.0
Other Thoughts: I have quite a bit of D-Link products and all things considered each and every one of them just perform flawlessly. I cannot think of anything bad to say about D-Link products....NIC cards, Routers, access points, ip security cameras, Ethernet powerline adapters, etc. They just perform as designed!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Coboc 6 ft. HDMI® A Male to A Male Cable (Black)
Pros: Finally saw this Newegg promotion and ordered a few of these spare hdmi cables. They can be routed easily since the material is fairly flexible but more importantly I knew they would be delivered quickly since Newegg had them in stock at their east coast warehouse across the river in Secaucus. What shocked me was the fact is I have never been a huge fan of Newegg Eggsaver shipping but this time the items were in my hand in less than 3 work days.
Cons: Nothing really bad to say about these HDMI cables. My other competitively purchased HDMI cables had thicker gage wire and were manufactured a bit better but at twice the cost plus shipping.
Other Thoughts: Looks like Newegg is actually reading these reviews and now has the occasional cable promotion. Kudos to Newegg!READ FULL REVIEW
