TP-LINK TL-WA855RE N300 Wi-Fi Wall Plug Range Extender / Repeater / Access Point
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Super cheap and easy to setup. Great Buy! 12/20/2016

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WA855RE N300 Wi-Fi Wall Plug Range Extender / Repeater / Access Point

Pros: - Super Easy Setup
- Cheap Price
- Wireless Extender/Repeater/Access Point
- Good Signal
- Small Footprint
- Nice Design and Sleek Appearance

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: The first thing I noticed about this device was it just looks good. I like the texture and the two-tone look of the glossy white/matte white. TP-Link has really been paying attention to the look of their devices as of late. I believe I said something similar when I was reviewing the Touch P5 Wireless AC1900 Touch Screen Gigabit Router. The footprint of this device is small and doesn't over-crowd the electric outlet as some models do.

This thing was a breeze to set-up. I believe it was a 30-40 second setup using the WPS button on the device and the router. While setting up, I also love the fact that this thing will act as an extender, repeater and an AP. I used as an AP with an additional wireless connection for the house. I did also test it as a wireless extender and used my phone plus a wireless signal tester to get a read out of 50% wireless signal. Once I determined this spot, I installed the device to the closest outlet hoping to post the wireless signal during testing. It worked.

I've got this connected to my switch in my network closet as another AP and it works great for the family room. In the family room I have a smart TV, PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Raspberry Pi 2; which are all wireless and all connected to this device. They all run great with no hiccups. I used this device as an AP because the Chromecast doesn't like wireless extenders and tends to get confused with handing off the connection.

I've reviewed a lot of TP-Link's network devices and rarely am I disappointed. All in all this is a great device for the price and was crazy easy to setup.

4 out of 5 eggs Good device for price/storage space. Okay read speeds but a bit slow on write speeds 11/14/2016

This review is from: ADATA USA UV140 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Blue/Black (AUV140-32G-RBE)

Pros: - Form Factor
- Clip Design
- USB 3.0

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: Nice small form factor USB 3.0 device. I really like the clip design so I can clip it to a pocket or a folder when moving around in the office. there's also the standard hole to loop a lanyard through. I put this little guy through a benchmark test using CrystalDiskMark and received the following:

Seq Read: 125.5 MB/s
Seq Write: 26.68 MB/s
512K Read: 113.2 MB/s
512K Write: 11.56 MB/s
4K Read: 5.37 MB/s
4K Write: 0.37 MB/s
4K QD32 Read: 6.12 MB/s
4K QD32 Write: 0.48 MB/s

As you can see the read speed isn't so bad but the write speeds seem to really slow down. However, don't let the USB 3.0 branding sell you on speed as these things vary quite a bit. So many devices boast about speeds but hardly deliver the advertised speeds. I purchased this thumb drive for it's size and capacity versus price. It fits the bill for me quite nicely. If you are looking for something to write faster this isn't the drive for you. If you want something small and cheap, this is a great little device.
