Pros: Super fast, intuitive installation software, easy to install once you get the right cable to clone old HDD.
Cons: None, once you get the right cable to clone the drive. Wish it had come with one or Newegg had listed the SSD-USB cable requirement as an add-on.
Other Thoughts: My Toshiba Portege laptop has an eSATA/USB combo port which I thought would give me faster cloning so I bought an SSD-eSATA cable. Wouldn't recognize drive no matter what I did. Nothing in Samsung or Toshiba literature or even Newegg questions specified using a USB 2.0 cable. With help from Neweggers, I learned that eSATA didn't provide power. I got a USB-SSD cable for 8 bucks and now I'm enjoying a snappy SSD. Thanks to Sean and Paul and the Newegg community!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy setup, excellent coverage, good price, small footprint.
Cons: None noted in 4 months of continuous usage.
Other Thoughts: This replaced my Linksys E2000 which I then reconfigured as an access point. We had to locate our primary router at one end of a 2000 square foot ranch style house and coverage petered out after about twenty feet. The RT-N66U gave us near whole-house coverage, and with the access point at the other end of the house we have 3 bars everywhere, even in our back yard living area. I haven't figured out what to do with the Trendnet bridge yet, but at this price who cares? Highly recommended, after years of frustration with poor wireless coverage and complicated setups.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LINKSYS RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender
Pros: Compact, portable, boosts signal somewhat
Cons: Continually drops signals so you lose data you've input into a site, for example ordering a product or purchasing airline tickets.
Other Thoughts: This is an update to my earlier "Just OK" post. I got this working so a 3-4 bar signal was available in most of our 2,000 square foot house. But my wife's Macbook Pro would connect and then start searching for another signal, apparently fluctuating between the router and the range extender. My Toshiba Portege did the same thing. Every time the laptops searched they dropped the signal we were receiving. When I chatted with Linksys online about this, they dropped me when it took me over 3 minutes to get the serial number, which I'd given them in a previous chat. I tried every setting I could think of on the computers (like locking the signal on the Mac) but nothing worked. I've returned the product after nearly a month of frustration and about 30 hours trying to make this work. I wish others better luck.READ FULL REVIEW
