TP-LINK HS110 (Energy Monitoring)  Smart Plug, Wi-Fi Enabled, Control Your electric equipment from Anywhere, Energy Saving
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: I’ve never used a smart plug before but have always wanted a house I could control with my phone. With this product, you can almost do just that.

The app makes it super easy to setup and is pretty well designed to make it easy to turn on any of the outlets you want in your house. The app even lets you set timers for your outlets which would be great for aquariums or if you’re going to be away from your house on vacation.

Cons: App only works for a few TP-Link products making it so it’s not quite enough to run your house just yet.

I would still love to put these all over my house but they are so expensive, it’s not even worth it to have one per room.

When the outlet turns on/off, you hear a pretty loud switch sound making it obvious you just changed it. It would be nice if it was quieter.

The form factor is kind of big making it hart to plug anything else into the other outlet. I think it was mainly designed for the non-US outlets that only have one plug per panel.

Other Thoughts: I really like this but I don’t think I’m going to upgrade my place to a smart house with these just yet.

TP-Link RE590T AC1900 Touch Screen Wi-Fi Range Extender
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Large But Great Range... And Touch Screen 08/11/2016

This review is from: TP-Link RE590T AC1900 Touch Screen Wi-Fi Range Extender

Pros: I also tested the router version of this touch screen series so my reviews are very similar for both.

The first thing I noticed was how easy the touch screen registered. It wasn’t one of those cheap screens that requires you to really push hard. It felt almost as good as an actual smartphone screen.

I was super impressed with how useful and easy the touch screen was to use. You can change all the major settings that a normal user would care about and it’s all cleanly organized. They make the interface resemble an iPhone as far as apps and the keyboard style.

As for the wireless part which people really care about, it has great wireless range. It matches my current router that no other router came close to until now.

Cons: My main complaint is there is no guest network option that made the router counterpart so cool.

This range extender is a little on the big side.

If you want to mount it on your wall, it would still need the normal power cord coming into the back. I imagine it would look pretty weird with a cord hacking off of it on a wall.

The touch screen’s initial “swipe to unlock” screen is sometimes hard to swipe correctly.

Other Thoughts: This extender is awesome for wireless range and even comes with a very user friendly touch screen. I would love to mount this in my hall but because of the power cord, you can’t cleanly mount it at eye level. It may not be an extender with a plug build in that you just plug into an outlet, but it gets far better range than any other extender I’ve tested. After all, range is what you get a range extender for.

TP-LINK Touch P5 Wireless AC1900 Touch Screen Gigabit Router
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Great Touch Screen On A Great Router 08/11/2016

This review is from: TP-LINK Touch P5 Wireless AC1900 Touch Screen Gigabit Router

Pros: This is just like their touch screen wireless extender with extra features. You can easily make this into a wireless extender if you want (there’s a setting for that).

The first thing I noticed was how easy the touch screen registered. It wasn’t one of those cheap screens that requires you to really push hard. It felt almost as good as an actual smartphone screen.

I was super impressed with how useful and easy the touch screen was to use. You can change all the major settings that a normal user would care about and it’s all cleanly organized. They make the interface resemble an iPhone as far as apps and the keyboard style. The main screen shows the guest network SSID and password which would be awesome for when you have guests over. You would really impress them when you have them go to your router and there’s a touch screen with the password they need. That in itself deserves 5 stars.

As for the wireless part which people really care about, it has great wireless range. It matches my current router that no other router came close to until now.

Cons: This router is a little on the big side.

If you want to mount it on your wall, it would still need the normal power cord coming into the back. I imagine it would look pretty weird with a cord hacking off of it on a wall.

The touch screen’s initial “swipe to unlock” screen is sometimes hard to swipe correctly.

Other Thoughts: I love the touch screen on this router, but even if it didn’t have the touch screen, it still makes one of the best routers I’ve used.
