This review is from: LINKSYS WUSB6100M Next-Gen AC AC600 Mu-Mimo USB Adapter
Pros: 1. Low Price
2. Easy Setup (other thoughts)
3. Plug and Play Connectivity
4. Great 5 GHz/2.4 GHz speeds
5. Terrific range
6. Small and unobtrusive.
7. USB 3.0/2.0
Cons: 1. AC 600
Other Thoughts: This is a great piece of kit. It connected seamlessly with my Linksys EA 8500 MAX MU-MIMO AC 2600 Router. 5 GHz Speed Tests through Charter 60 Mbps - 63 Mbps / 2.4 GHz 47 Mbps. Terrific throughput and low latency. Only issue I had was I had to use the CD Software to install the adapter as the Lenovo Win 10 didn't automatically recognize it. Other issue I had was I had to disconnect/reconnect the USB adapter after initial install for it to be recognized. this is a terrific product and at under $60.00 is a terrific investment - wish it was AC 1200 for the price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fully Modular
Easy to read connections
Easily labeled cabling
Included Zip Ties
Beefy Power Supply
Near Silent Operation
Individually Sleeved and Heat-Shrink Cables
Great Low Noise Fan
Contains all the bells and whistles a top power supply should have
Cons: The 8 PIN CPU Cable may not reach in all cases
Longer than my other PSU (NZXT Hale 90 750W)
Other Thoughts: This is a great PSU by Corsair which continues to hit home runs. It is fully modular and very efficient. Corsair tends to go with Seasonic as the OEM for their PSUs (though this may either be CWT or FSP - haven't checked) and tend to under-rate the wattage and efficiency they can handle (gold can typically run at platinum, silver at gold, etc). This thing is nearly silent and allowed me to run 2 XFX HD 6870s in XFIRE, OCZ ARC 480 SSD, Samsung 850 EVO 128 SSD, 4 TB WD Black, 2 TB WD Black, AMD FX 6100 OC to 4.4 GHz, as well as a LG Blu-Ray Write and Lite ON DVD Burner with room to spare. I also haven't gotten any BSODs which I believe my NZXT was giving me due to lower amperage (to be fair I have had that power supply for 4+ years).
I can't recommend Corsair enough - everything they make is GOLD!
Pros: 1. Simple to setup. I had this ready in 3 minutes.
2. Excellent range - for a little box it really does extend the coverage.
3. Excellent value - for what it does it beats a ZyXEL AC 750 that is sold by a telco in Tennessee.
4. Easy connection with ALL devices - I have tested this with a PS3, Samsung SmarTV, Roku 2, Droid 2 Turbo and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, Lenovoa AMD A10 7800 K Laptop and everything runs smoothly with no lags, hiccups, or dropped connections.
5. Elegant design that blends in with the decor.
Cons: 1. The antennae only move up or down to a certain degree - no way to move them out at an angel to the sides.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend anyone looking for a range booster/extender that doesn't need top of the line offerings from the Nighthawk, Linksys, TP-Link (they have an awesome range extender in the AC 1900 line) or Asus to go with this model.
TP-Link is a good value for what they offer and setup is super simple.
One thing I wasn't fond of was that the setup of the 2.4GHz and 5 GHz were on two different pages - had me stuttering there for a moment.
Overall, highly recommended and it connects wired to my Samsung SmartTV with aplomb (use it for Plex Media Server).
