Pros: + Nice desktop design/layout
+ Power and Wi-Fi On/Off switches
+ Dual bands
+ Easy set up with or without mini cd
+ 2 USB ports
+ Decent signal range
+ Gigabit Ports
+ Price per performance per features
Cons: - Signal range not as strong as previous router (nit picking)
Other Thoughts: I found the GUI and the setup easy and painless. I believe any first time user could navigate through it without problem. I like the design layout as it fits perfectly on my desk and looks good too. We have 2 Xbones, 2 PS3's, 2 PS4's, 5 PCs, a laptop, and 3 phones that share our Wi-Fi. Our 2 sons are always playing games on one system or another. When not, we are streaming shows or movies. The WDR4300 router has been rock solid since installing it with no drops other than due to range limitations.
If I have to come up with a con, it would be that the range is not as great as my previous router a TP-Link Archer C7. The C7 has 3 internal and 3 external antennas and cost a bit more also. We live in a 2400 sq. ft. home with 3 floors. The router is located in the basement.
I was sent this router to review. As with other TP-Link products I have had the pleasure of reviewing this one is no exception. In my opinion TP-Link puts thought in designing a full featured product at each price point. As with many tech decisions (example gpu, cpu, mobo, ram)the decision as to which one to purchase is based on the consumers needs and wallet. I think for the average user, this router would prove to be an excellent choice based on its features and the price. It is certainly worth your consideration if shopping for a router.
Pros: + AC1750 Dual Concurrent Bands
+ Form Factor - I like the size and shape
+ 6 Antennas for max range
+ Gigabit speed
+ Power On/Off switch - better than pulling plug
+ Very nice GUI/menu
+ Guest Network
Cons: - Missing USB 3.0 Port found on C8 - Is additional $ worth it
Other Thoughts: I was sent this router to test out and review and I have it installed for 2 weeks now. I was very happy with my previous router, or so I thought. We have 2 PS4s, 2 PS3s, 2 Xbones, 5 PCs, a laptop, and 3 cell phones that share the Wi-Fi. I purchased a Samsung Note 4 when they first came out in October. I immediately noticed that it would constantly drop the Wi-Fi connection and reacquire it every few minutes. I tried talking with the CS and researching but found no help anywhere. This did not happen with my previous iPhone so I attributed it to the phone itself. Then when streaming movies through the PS3 I was having problems keeping the movie going. I blamed that on the cable provider. While I was playing Dragon's Age, I noticed that I was losing connection with the EA servers occasionally also. The first day I installed this router, the Note 4 kept the Wi-Fi connection all day long and has kept it ever since. I have streamed three movies since the install without a hiccup. Also I did not notice losing the connection to the server while playing Dragon's Age at all.
I have read through many of the reviews found here on Newegg. Many are thoroughly satisfied and some not so much. From my experience, this is my 5th router and so far it is the best one I have had the pleasure of using, My previous router was priced twice as much as this unit and as I found out faulty. I live in a 2400 square foot 2 story house with the router in the basement. I have found the signal strength to be higher with both the 5G and the 2.4Ghz bands throughout the house. I know of no dropped connections thus far. I found the user interface to be easy to navigate and the help easy to understand. I would indeed recommend the Archer C7 to anyone shopping for an economical AC1750 dual band router. I know I am satisfied with this one.
This review is from: TP-LINK UH700 USB 3.0 7 port Desktop Hub, with Power Adapter
Pros: + Nice sleek slim design
+ 12 v, 2.5 amp DC power provided for charging
+ Power On/Off button
+ Inlcuded interface cable
+ 2year TP-Link 24/7 Warranty
Cons: - I can't seem to find one
- Still thinking
Other Thoughts: This is a very nicely designed hub that is a nice addition to my desk top. It just looks sleek sitting there. I have found that it performs as designed with my transfer results fluctuating depending on the device I am using. It has not crashed or locked up but performed flawlessly. I like everything about it and can not find any fault with it. One could always say the price, but that goes with most quality tech merchandise. My previouse hub was a USB 2 and did not have the power switch. I like the power switch feature better. If you are shopping for a hub, you should give this unit your consideration. I am sure you will be as satisfied as I am with it.READ FULL REVIEW
