Pros: A higher quality Seagate without a higher price. No waiting around while hard drive heads move pointlessly; and, that's a huge difference. Slightly less likely to fail; and, that certainly does help. As for hard drives, the Samsung product routinely takes first or second place. Let's just call it a non-confusing fairly good idea. You won't have to work hard on the research to get the best that Seagate can make, mainly because Samsung directed them to do that.
Cons: I just don't know if an RE4 is better or not. But, that's not really a con.
Other Thoughts: If you need one now, you're on the right page.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button
Pros: It is very stable and no trouble at all. Also, no random wireless drops.
It runs DD-WRT easily.
It can be competitive for wireless range if set atop a tall bookshelf or on a wall-shelf; and, also see cons.
The onboard CPU is VERY fast, so it can do the AES and routing tasks at optimal speed. That is a great bonus that I had not expected when I purchased it.
Cons: Not a good performance for range; however, with a more ideal (much higher) placement it isn't bad.
Other Thoughts: I've got a pair of these and I do like them. There was momentarily some trouble with the range; however, I got some shelves like you'd set a little clock or other item for display, up high enough to position the wireless router for better range. Then I had to get sound Ethernet couplers because my cords were too short.
That is not necessarily bad news!
The good news is that, after that little bit of effort, the wireless situation has covered just as much area as the older high power system it replaced, I've good good steady throughput at very fast speeds, and it is completely stable.
After that bit of placement hijinks, the usual throughput is 90% of a 100 megabit connection.
I wish I had bought the slightly more expensive version that has the removable antennas, removed them, and put on some 19" antennas. One such system, still upon a high shelf, could do what it takes two of these to do. I already had the long cable in place, so my experience, this time, was really no trouble at all.
Pros: Better audio quality than most upgrade sound cards, and a lot easier to use.
Cons: The range is slightly less than 20 feet. Not sure if that is a pro or a con.
Other Thoughts: This device is very enjoyable.
You'd hook it up to a phone charger and a stereo. Presto then your music collection aboard your phone plays on your stereo. Also, your phone can adjust the volume, like a remote.
