TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Works great. Set up was easy as eating. Gigabit ports if your in a situation that calls for them (Most are not). USB for a printer (Just share it on a computer just as good) but great if I want to do a network storage with a Hard drive that I have many of (Don't like sharing my hard drives or solid state drives, so great for that). Also 3 removable antennae, they are 3 dbi but can be replaced with what ever you want, I see the 8 dbi's currently for $8 x 3 so $24 for more range I don't need (read below).

Cons: Wasn't free

Other Thoughts: I had the TL-WR841N but a friend needed it so I bought this and gave him my TL-WR841N. The range on this is a little better. I use EDIMAX EW-7438RPn Mini N300 bought here at Newegg to extend range. I place mine about 17' away upstairs through walls and get a 86% signal strength to it with this router vs. around 70-75% with the TL-WR841N. Haven't replaced the antennae, was thinking about it, but in a 2 story house with the range extender and router in basement I'm good. But then again $24 for almost triple the dbi antennae and what I paid for this $48 with its features, I think I come out a head vs. other high end routers. I'm happy now and not sure if I want to just blow a trip to Arby's a 6 pack and some smokes to see higher signal strength that's good already.

SAMSUNG 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE256BW 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Sold my 128 GB to upgrade on a 256 GB.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: All I did was fix another comp and just simply sold my SSD and added the repair costs I received to get a larger drive. Nothing more. Best drive there is and that's why I did it. BTW, food for thought, Samsung Magician has no support for Nvidia Nforce chipset. Tried to use Rapid mode on Nforce 430 chipset and its a NO GO! Just food for thought.

EDIMAX EW-7438RPn Mini N300 Mini Wi-Fi Extender/Access Point/Wi-Fi Bridge
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Small. Easy to use and set up.

Cons: Doesn't shock cats or death-ray them

Other Thoughts: I'm just doing a re-review after owning awhile.

The device would drop blue-ray player randomly after a week of purchase. However, a simple easy to do FIRMWARE update solved the problem. This thing works great and does exactly what it says. Update the FIRMWARE (as you should with any device) and have fun :)
