Pros: As so many new receiver are including is 'Dual Band' 2.4Ghz & 5GHz signals. The 5GHz offers separation and a better connection (see other thoughts).
Option of a low profile bracket and pci-e interface makes this good for even small case installs.
Triple antennas for optimal connection with full swing adjustable direction connection.
Other Thoughts: I had been trying to get a better stable connection for a small case HTPC about 30' away from my router and thru 3 walls. I was using a TP-LINK N900 on an extended cable up the wall and on a shelf for a stable connection. Now I not only have no more wire showing, I have a very stable connection. I wanted time to see just how stable is the connection with the AC 1900 can be. I always would have a glitch or disconnect intermittently before this was installed. I tried the 5GHz and so you know how it works.. 2.4GHz has more distance coverage than the 5GHZ. Both are similar, but less distance but more separation from other signals.
I was able to connect 5GHz but drops. I switched to 2.4GHz and found that assigning a 'Channel' thru my router was my success! I used a separate channel with the N900 also, but not the same constant connection as the AC-1900. I used a few different channel selections before finding the one that kept the best signal connection.
My HTPC not only runs for hours each day, we were able to do gaming without any connection complaints. It's a cleaner look installed and the triple antennas make for a better connection by adjusting them for the strongest signal.
Sometimes we can't take the least expensive choice to get the true results we need. It's easy to see the value in installing the AC-1900. It's an easy install with the included disc and if you don't know how, your ISP can guide you thru assigned channel selections. Beautiful HD picture, stable gaming with good speeds (no jitter or stumble) and a definite suggest to buy.
Pros: Both 2.4GHz & 5Ghz is becoming a standard in routers and things we connect with. This gives a few connectivity options that you control.
Guest networks with separate 2.4GHz & 5GHz and different available setting for a different password than your private one.
USB sharing port, WPS and a 2yr warranty.
There is a setup wizard and a styled designed into the nice black surface.
Cons: No ability built in for wall hanging?
An updated Firmware was available for mine, but that's not necessarily a con.. the router works great. I always check with new equipment. You can read the list of what was updated and if it's not something that effects you, you don't have to do it. Optional, I like current.
Other Thoughts: This is a lot of bang for the buck. I'm starting off that way because I have reviewed a few routers, and this one has a user interface that is user friendly and as complete as higher dollar ones. So, for the experienced user, you wont be disappointed and for the novice average user I think you'll be amazed at what you can do yourself, easily.
The radio range is perfect for an average home and great as an access router to expand your existing router. I did it in just a few settings. Get a longer LAN cable and distance from your existing router and help make weaker or dead spots have more signal. Working as the main router is easy as any other type use too.
I gave a little use time to also see if there would be a power issue.. I read reviews here. All I can say is any product can have a problem. I've been truly using TP-Link products for a long time and no problems. I believe this is a great choice and a no looser at the price. I ran a 25' Cat6 from my router to the next room (snaked thru the wall) to improve outback connectivity and by the pool. It's working great.
So much available through TP-Link support that you should find an answer to however you plan to use this. I looked and found what I needed. Also searching has answers. This is a recommend to buy.
Pros: The screw less design is easy to use and holds closed very well.
Decent length USB cable.
LED communication light.
Non-slip type feel to the case.
Cons: The blue LED light is bright, not obnoxious but bright. Not a con, but a little dimmer would be nice.
Other Thoughts: It's a perfect case for a quick easy screw less HDD install. I have a 2TB installed with instant communication.
Mine is communicating 24/7 and it's cool to the touch. Mine is a set and forget, but this is a good carry case too. It has a decent length USB cable.
I reviewing it's an affordable, well made quick HDD exchangeable case. Great value for the money and an awesome choice if your looking for one.
