Pros: Moderately good range
Very easy setup
Twonky DLNA server
Cons: Bulky power adapter
Throughput could be better
Other Thoughts: I found this router to have acceptable range, though not as good as any of my routers with antennas. I was still able to get an acceptable signal from a corner of my basement to the opposite corner of my home on the first level.
The wireless speeds that I was able to achieve were acceptable, though not as good as a pair of TP-Link routers used for comparison.
Setup was very easy. I connected the router, connected my phone to the wireless network and was prompted to "sign in" which launched the phone's browser and a quick setup wizard.
Once the initial setup is done, you are able to get to the main dashboard (which displayed flawlessly on my phone where other routers often fail). From there you can tweak wireless settings, enable basic parental controls (access schedule, Norton content filters), etc.
I found that this router includes a pretty awesome Twonky DLNA server. This was one of the easiest DLNA servers to set up that I've encountered in a router. I didn't have any trouble streaming a variety of files using this feature. I hope more manufacturers make DLNA this easy.
They include a USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 port. The USB 3.0 port is labeled, but not color coded like most.
I feel that this router would be a good purchase for the non-technical person due to the very easy setup, however, the usual settings appear to be included. I didn't see a setting for IGMP proxy, which may be required by some IPTV users.
This review is from: TP-Link Archer T2UH AC600 High Gain Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter
Pros: Excellent range
3 foot USB extension cable included
WPS button for quick connection
Not USB 3.0 (possible throughput bottleneck)
Other Thoughts: Disclaimer: Most testing was done with my TP-Link routers. Performance and compatibility should be expected to be great with the same brand.
Tested this adapter with two TP-Link routers - an Archer C5 and an Archer C7. Both had excellent range and no drops. Throughput very good. I can max out my internet connection (75/75 provisioned, 85/92 real world) from most locations in my home on the 5 GHz band.
I also tested this with an older Netgear 802.11n router and the performance was as good or better than other N150 adapters that I've used.
Drivers for Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows XP are included on the CD.
I've been using a handful of TP-Link products and they keep impressing me. This adapter is a bargain for the performance. Now if I could get my hands on a beamforming router I'd be set.
This review is from: Corsair Gaming H2100 Wireless Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset - Greyhawk
Pros: Excellent sound quality
Excellent recording quality
Earpiece mounted volume control
Short USB charging cable (for charging while in-use)
Other Thoughts: It really took a lot of time for me to adjust to this headset. I've been using a set of Sennheiser stereo headphones (corded) with a desktop microphone and these are just so much bigger and heavier. I found my neck hurting after an hour or so of wearing these. It took a week or so to adjust to the added bulk and get them adjusted to fit just right.
I do wish the microphone had some more adjustment to it for storage purposes, but I can't knock it for sound quality.
The sound quality was very good. I tried testing the surround with some games and I do hear a difference, but no night and day difference from stereo for me.
One feature that I quickly grew fond of is the earpiece mounted volume control. This beats the pants off of adjusting volume in-game or alt-tabbing to the desktop to adjust volume or other tricks.
Battery life is good. I didn't use them enough to get a good average, but I never went less than 6 hours between charges. You can charge these while in-use, however, the charging cable supplied is on the short side for this.
A USB extension cable is included to mount the transceiver away from the PC, however, I did not use it.
Range is good, however, that is going to depend on the environment in which the product is used. Using the extension cable for the transceiver should help with range if there is an issue.
The overall build quality is impressive. I do feel that this is a quality product. The joint between the head band and the ear pieces seems to be a compressed o-ring to prevent unwanted movement and I have concerns about the o-ring wearing out. I don't foresee any other longevity issues other than normal wear.
