This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR843ND Wireless N300 AP/Client Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button
Pros: In the Review Above by SIDNEY S., he is referencing an ASUS router, NOT THIS ONE by TP-Link,
I would probably ignore his review unless he simply quoted the wrong Brand in his review.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Arrived quickly and was well packaged with instruction manual in multiple languages and a USB 3.0 Blue Tipped Cable. Nice brushed silver finish on case, Easy to insert/remove Drives, Bright Red Power LED and Super Bright Flashing HD Read/Write LED. Perfect for using to transfer data from one machine to another or even for building your own backup drive.
The plastic eject/lock side and top edge piece is a little flexible, so you do have to be careful not to pull it open too far, but it seems to firmly lock the drive in place and eject it without any issues.
Cons: Fit and Finish: The edges and corners of the metal case are still a little sharp, but not enough to cut you. I will likely sand them down a little more to make them a bit more rounded and smooth.
Eject Button: You have to push the eject button down and while holding it down, slide it to the right about an eighth of an inch to release the lock and then tilt the eject mechanism to the right to eject the drive. Not a big deal, but not easy if you have big fingers or trouble with your dexterity. Once I figured it out, it worked just fine.
Other Thoughts: For the money, it's a great little case, and I highly recommend it if you need something to protect your drive. It has worked as expected for my needs.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice Metal Case
Small Size Device
Stays pretty cool
No Noise/ No Fan
Low power consumption
Great LED indicators for different speed connections
Reasonable Price for the product
Cons: My only complaint with these types of switches is that all of the connections are on the front of the device and of course the power plug is on the back of the device.
It would be nice to have the power and all ports on the back of the device with LED's attached to each port as well as putting a second set of LED's on the front of the device for easy "at a glance" views of each port.
If you mount these on the wall or place them on a desk top, it is difficult to make them look good and still remain functional due to having to route cables and power connections to opposite sides of the device.
If you are just putting it on the floor, no big deal. But, if you are trying to mount it on the wall or place it on a Desktop, it looks very busy and disorganized due to required cable routing. Of course, the ideal the orientation of the unit gives you full access and view of the activity/signal LED's.
Other Thoughts: I purchased 2 of these to use with my home network to stream video and data between the TV area and my Office / Modem-Router devices. They are 70 feet walking distance from each other.
At the TV location, I have connected a HAVA PCTV To-Go Device (Video Streamer like a Sling Box), a DirecTV HD DVR Receiver, a TP-Link WR-1043ND Wireless Router that I'm using strictly as a Remote Access Point, a Seagate FreeAgent Theatre+ HD Media Player , and a Buffalo NAS device holding all of my movies, and a Wireless Wii Game Machine.
In my office, I have connected my Motorola SurfBoard SB-6141 Cable Modem to a TP-Link WDR-4300 Wireless Dual Band Router , and then connected the Router to supply signal to each of the 2 New Switches Plus an old 8 port switch and an Obihai 100 VoIP device.
To the New Office Switch, I have connected 2 Desktop hard wired PC's, a Buffalo NAS Backup device, a Laptop PC as well as a VoIP NetTalk Device. I still have a couple of open ports. So far, everything seems to work just fine for streaming HD videos from Netflix as well as movies from my NAS/Seagate Theatre+ Device, as well as streaming video to remote devices and internal devices using the HAVA PCTV To-Go Device. I have done all of this while running Backups concurrently to both Buffalo NAS devices without any issues.
Throughput seems to be very good and I highly recommend these devices.
