TP-Link N300 Wireless Extender, Wi-Fi Router (TL-WR841N) - 2 x 5dBi High Power Antennas, Supports Access Point, WISP, Up to 300Mbps

Pros: Easy to setup, Range is pretty far for what you pay for.

Most Critical Review

New Small Size :(

HGST Travelstar Z5K320 HTS543232A7A384 (Part#: 0A78603) 320GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive
HGST Travelstar Z5K320 HTS543232A7A384 (Part#: 0A78603) 320GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Works Perfectly fine, is quiet and comes with a nice 3 year warranty.

Cons: The new 7 mm size doesn't fit in the new Dell Inspiron 1545 and I am pretty sure any kind of hard drive enclosure that has a slide in hard drive connection.

Overall Review: I'm not downing this product but its just frustrating to have to order another one because of their new slick design, just beware if your hard drive slides in and out it probably wont fit it unless u pull one of these out originally.

Garbage

Pros: paperweight

Cons: Everything

Overall Review: Wouldnt even work, Tried it out on a Windows 10 build, Recognizes and installs in device manager, but wont work/read. Same story on windows 7 Machine, Too much hassle to try to return for something so cheap so just ate the cost. Sometimes you get more than what you pay for but not in this case, I took the gamble. I recommend you don't.

Garbage

D-Link DIR-515 Wireless N 300 Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11n/g
D-Link DIR-515 Wireless N 300 Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11n/g

Pros: 50% of the ones I have bought work and keep working.

Cons: 50% dont work consistantly. Constantly have to power cycle them to get them to work and only work for a couple of days only for you to have to do it again. Endlessly having to power cycle unit to get to work. I have bought and installed more than 10 of these for my customers and around half or more I have had to go back to replace. I have gone through the RMA process with a couple of these and I just dont have the time to do it anymore and its ridiculous what they put you through to get what you paid for. I used to stand behind dlink 100% but with what I have gone through with these and how much Time and Money lost with this product I cant do it any more.

Overall Review: I own a computer repair buisness and I rather not come back to a job after installing a router or worse have to send someone because Im busy on a more imortant job. If your a home user and want to roll the dice, you may get a good product. But for me I need everyone of them to be good and reliable, these arent. These issues with this product maybe incompatibilty with some devices by the end users, but the product should work with all wifi certified devices. Also there are no firmware updates for this product to address these issues. And I have tried all different kinds of settings with this product, even with the wireless network being unsecure there are still connectivity issues. I switched to dlink after linksys changed to internal antennas and now I have now switched to another company, with a better product and at a better price. Most have 2 year warranties rather than 1. Can't name the other company do to the Newegg guidelines but, compare and find a better router than this 1.
