Pros: Both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands.
Small size, easy on the eyes LED.
Easy setup / Backwards compatible.
Cons: TP-Link has great products. See other thoughts...
Other Thoughts: This is a real nice small sized Wi-Fi adapter, perfect for use in any PC. With Windows it is not necessary to install more than the drivers. I always try to find the good in a product as a product tester. Unfortunately in trials in 2 different PC's, the 'Down Stream' was slower by up to 20% compared to the built in wireless in my PC.s, using both just drivers and with the TP-Link program. The 'Upstream' was fine. This tells me that an improved Firmware will make this great. I do use a different TP-Link wireless
adapter with great success on an HTPC.
I still feel that this is a good buy at a low price.
This review is from: NETGEAR GS205 5-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch in Plastic Case – Essentials Edition
Pros: This is an extremely compact size and way to add additional connectivity in the simplest way.
It's as easy as plugging it in and you have additional gigabit connectivity ports ready to use.
It's very small, which is nice since we have a lot of things plugged in these days. Connect to either modem or router and this will automatically switch based on demand, and leave nobody without a connection.
Netgear is a leader in connectivity products. Two-year warranty is very nice.
Cons: None... zero zip..
Other Thoughts: This is a very inexpensive way to add additional wired internet connections. Switching can tend to make me think one of the connections gets the bulk of connectivity, while the others wait their turn and real slow connections. In testing this I found this to be totally untrue.
For just about two weeks I have had 2 daily PC’s, an HTPC and a laptop connected. Two of the computers are used often at the same time and the HTPC is almost always on and running HDTV. I found it impressive that this unit never left any of them with a poor connection, at any time! This includes online gaming, HDTV running continuous, and a laptop just to be another user so that I could see how good this works. With two computers doing online gaming, I occasionally saw a slight reduction in FPS, but it was a fast recovery. That showed me that this not only switches on demand, it does it really quick.
It's has been like I didn't even connect this for the most part (compared to straight out of my router). With today's high speeds in our homes and businesses, for the multi-tasking and multi-users, this proved out to be a very good product. There is enough bandwidth to go around. I have a hi-speed package from my supplier. With a slow basic bandwidth package this might not give as good results, this is ‘Sharing’ a single connection.
How can you go wrong to even have this as a tool in the tool box of ifs? Additional connections or want to be ready in case, Would I recommend this to family or friend, yes!
Pros: Easy install.
Other Thoughts: This is my 4th of this model. The price is affordable and over more than 2+ years not even one glitch or problem of any kind.
This is a recommend to buy. If I need another, I will buy this model again.
