This review is from: NETGEAR EX2700 N300 WiFi Range Extender Essentials Edition
Pros: - Simple installation.
- Easy configuration via the mywifiext built in website.
- Appears to have good range, from what testing I've done.
- Can carry over configuration settings from source router, so connecting is made easier with a single set of credentials.
Cons: - Connection to mywifiext can be tricky after initial installation.
- Speeds from the N300 slightly slower, than from the source router.
Other Thoughts: The N300 works well, as advertised, in extending the range of your existing router. You do encounter a performance hit with up/downloading speeds, however I've found these to be negligible on noticeable performance.
Able to have the unit 30-40 feet away, with a number of drywall walls between the unit and router, and was still able to get a green connection light.
The only real problem I encountered was with reaching the mywifiext internal website. When first plugging in the unit, the website came right up and I was able to easily follow the configuration wizard to set up the connection settings.
However once the unit was connected to the router, I was not able to reach the mywifiext site. The work around was to log into my AT&T router, find the IP number assigned to the unit, then using that IP number in the browser address bar I was able to reach the mywifiext site.
So taking an egg away for that, since it was frustrating as hell at first, wondering why mywifiext became unreachable once linked to my router.
Pros: > Vibrant colors.
> No dead pixels that I can see (Checked with UDPix).
> Fast response time. Games appear to run faster than they did with my older Samsung monitor, despite the video hardware not changing.
> Speakers and HDMI ports. So I can hook both my PC and XBone to the same monitor, and switch inputs.
Cons: > Nothing so far with the monitor, but my box seal was opened!! WT(PH)??!!
Other Thoughts: When I got the box from UPS, I found that the ASUS security seal was broken. Even though everything appeared to be new, I got a sinking suspicion that I got an "Open Box" product, rather than factory sealed new product for which I paid the full price for.
At this point the product is working fine, but if I get anything further from NewEgg with a broken manufactures seal... I'll be speaking with management about this!
One egg off, for the doubts about the origin of my product!
Pros: - Cheap.
- Quality cable.
- Easy to handle.
- Easy to set up.
Cons: - None encountered.
Other Thoughts: A low cost, easy plug and play solution to hooking up your XBox 360, to your flat screen TV. While in use, I did not see any ghosting, shadowing or other distortions to the display. Currently in use with a 50" Sanyo LCD TV.READ FULL REVIEW
