TP-LINK TL-PA7020 KIT HomePlug AV2 MIMO AV1000 2 –Port Gigabit Powerline Starter Kit, up to 1000 Mbps
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent performance for the price, even if they aren't gig 10/03/2016

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA7020 KIT HomePlug AV2 MIMO AV1000 2 –Port Gigabit Powerline Starter Kit, up to 1000 Mbps

Pros: - Fastest Powerline speeds I have ever seen before
- Slim design
- Dual gigabit ports
- Price

Cons: - Not fully gig even in a controlled environment per advertised speeds, however given that wifi manufacturers do the same thing, this is not unexpected.

Other Thoughts: I was able to in most cases get at lest 300 megabit transfer speeds if not a little more. Speeds were constant and stable. The design on these is really nice. Extremely simple to set up. I would recommend over wifi unless you have the latest and greatest AC Wave 2 gear. For the price these are very good.

Now I know that they didn't perform at full gigabit speeds, but between ports on one device I was able to get the full gigabit speeds and between each wall device achieving 300-380 megabit is not bad, especially for what I've experienced in the past with powerline adapters.

The TP Link utility is really nice. It lets me see what the current speeds are and update the firmware even if I'm not connected behind one of the devices.

These are extremely good and I would highly recommend them for anyone looking to purchase a powerline adapter. I know these are on my very short list in the future.

LINKSYS RE6500HG Dual Band Wireless AC Range Extender
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Works well, wish it was also just an access point 08/28/2016

This review is from: LINKSYS RE6500HG Dual Band Wireless AC Range Extender

Pros: - Wireless extending worked well. I was able to get wifi two floors down much stronger than just with a single AP on the top level.
- Speeds were about what I expected. About half of full which is normal since the signal is repeated.
- Dual Band
- 802.1AC

Cons: - This is something I've noticed with every range extender I've seen: I've never been able to get it to act as an access point. There's literally no reason for this except for the lack of code. It wouldn't be that hard either, quite frankly it's frustrating since the hardware is already in place. This would make it so that the signal wouldn't be repeated but rather have your network extended via an already available ethernet port on the back.

Other Thoughts: All in all I would recommend this to someone if they want/need a repeater and/or wireless bridge, however, an access point it is not hence the 4/5 eggs.

TP-LINK TC-7610-E DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem (Easy-open package)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Great price for a Docsis 3.0 modem 08/28/2016

This review is from: TP-LINK TC-7610-E DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem (Easy-open package)

Pros: - Inexpensive
- Speeds as advertised (150/10 in my case)
- Easy to set up
- Simple packaging

Cons: - Feels a little on the cheap side. Plastics are lower quality, but does it really matter? Not so much for performance.
- Gets a little warmer compared to Motorola's offerings.

Other Thoughts: Honestly there's not much to say except that it worked as advertised. I am on a 150 meg down/10 up plan and speeds were rock solid on Comcast/Xfinity. The modem is capable of higher giving me adequate room to grow. As others have mentioned, this is only a modem so you still need your own wireless router. This is also not compatible if you have Comcast's in home telephone service. If you want to save money on your cable bill, this modem will fit the bill. It'll pay itself off very quickly at it's current price point.
