Pros: Has amazing wifi range and good security features for the price. My personal RNX-N300RTv1 throws a signal over 1600 feet outside through my kitchen window.
Cons: The DHCP on these routers has a high failure rate. See Other Thoughts.
Other Thoughts: Three RNX-N300RT routers I have installed for people have had DHCP issues. Wifi signal was still very strong but devices would fail to obtain an IP address when trying to connect. In some cases, Android and iOS devices could connect, but Windows-based laptops would have as many as 3 bars of signal but would yield "Unable to connect to the network." When connecting to these routers with a static IP, I could reach the config page just fine. In one case, even a factory reset did not correct the problem. These make great access points, but IMO are not reliable as routers. A note - In two other situations, I have used the RNX-N150RT to handle DHCP and let the RNX-N300RT handle only wifi and this setup has been solid.
One more thought - do not mount these near main power wires, like incoming for breaker boxes. Although these things push a strong wifi signal, the EMF from high voltage wires completely BLOCKS signal to anything on the other side of the wall containing said wires.
Pros: Small, portable and quick access to wifi. Windows 8.1 picked it right up and put it to work before I could even install the drivers that came with it (which is uncommon to the ones I've used before)
Cons: This device is OLD. The latest driver for this unit from TP-Link are dated 2013.. Keeping in mind, in order to FIND the drivers for this on their website, you have to enable "Display End-of-Life Products" - meaning it is no longer a supported device.
Other Thoughts: It may be a single bad unit, but it acts as if it is pulled from the USB port every 4-6 hours and takes a minute or two to be re-discovered by Windows and connect back to WiFi. Signal strength on it is 5-6 on a scale to 1-10, which isn't bad considering it's too small to have a real antenna.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 5 Buttons, has lasted me at least 2 years, even through heavy use in World of Warcraft raids.
Cons: When first getting used to this mouse, the DPI swap button might get in the way.
Other Thoughts: After 2+ years of playing World of Warcraft, this mouse still works, but the scroller button is wearing out (corrosion inside the button, even though I've kept it dry and clean. This is the first mouse I've replaced that will stay for a spare. Will be buying another one.READ FULL REVIEW
