This review is from: TP-Link RE590T AC1900 Touch Screen Wi-Fi Range Extender
Pros: It looks out of this world. Thats about it.
Cons: Everything else. Easy to set up sure. But to get to it via a computer. You have to turn off your router and then hook up to the Extender. And probably have to reboot that. Then once you login to the extender you turn on the Router. This goes for if you name your SSID the same as the ones on the Router. I might rename them because so far there are zero devices on the extender but it's taking up alot of the bandwidth. And then updating the firmware. The printed ink on the bottom is partly rubbed off and there are two firmware upgrades. Hardware matches but I guess not the Country and they make more of a deal over the Hardware than the Country. Hardware matches !! Firmware is UN and EU UN???? Also it's a touchpad and the worst sort of touchpad. Even the first Smart Phone I ever had never had a touchpad that unsenstive. :( A stylus might be in order. And if you have the TP-Linke AD7200 why do you need this? 1900 vs 7200?? And it seems to prefer being wired not wireless so kinda goes pointless by then. I've read elsewhere you need this really close to the Router and that seems to be accurate so even after a second person set it up it still goes into Connection Fail.
Other Thoughts: I'd avoid this Money Pit at all costs and brains. 4 hours out the window and I'd love to chuck it out the window except dad paid $150 for it and I had to set it up. The Tp-Link AD7200 was a breeze. Was up and running great in 15-20 minutes. This brick is totally a brick with lights.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: For the price the thing was a steal. True get rid of the flimsy 3.0 USB cable that is provided. But everything else is well build. I would possible buy your own rubber feet. the foam pad food is hardly gonna help much. but Because of the fake it supports up to 6 TB I'm not complianing and unlike a Mediasonic enclosure Smart has no trouble with the drives stuck in this. Because some tend to get hot I do leave the cover off
Cons: Squeek? If you hate Squeaks and think there is a mouse loose inside the area you can't get too. That houses the power on and ac plug. Both of those can cause a bit of a squeak . No real problem it's just a squeak :P. And I'd buy this again if I could. Man $15 O_O wow. Gotta watch this company. Second dealings with them.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: $13 just to find some reason to throw it out. Bit of a waste. Newegg shoulda just throwin it out. Spins 5-6 times and dies. Clearly wherever it was it's covered in some weird fine white dust. in every nook and cranny thought possible :(
Other Thoughts: Avoid this one. For a WD this is rare.READ FULL REVIEW
