This review is from: TP-Link TL-WPA8630 KIT AV1200 Gigabit Powerline AC Wi-Fi Kit
Pros: - Initial setup is easy with just the two devices included.
- iOS/Android/Windows setup and maintenance application is good for troubleshooting
- Able to display network topology map on Windows utility
- Reported speeds >1000Mbps when on the same circuit breaker
- Wireless signal is very good. Almost as good as my RT-AC66U router
-1500W passthrough on the non-wireless module
Cons: - Pairing with other brands of AV2 powerline adapers was difficult, even though the standard is technically compatible.
- Setting up a network without an active internet connection is a little troublesome.
Other Thoughts: I set this up as an extension to the D-Link DHP-701AV pair I have. In order to connect all four devices in a single network, I had to first pair each TP-Link module with a D-Link module. So, 1 TPLink <-> 1 D-Link. Then I went into the TP-LInk Windows utility and reset the powerline network key to the default (HomePlugAV). I was hardwired into on of the TP-Link modules for this. The D-Link modules use this by default, but they don't provide a utility to change it. After that, the TP-Link utilty allows you to pair devices by entering it's powerline network ID (16 character code). The first pair I was hardwired to (TP-Link and D-Link) showed up on the network map in the utility. I attempted to add the second TP-link module using it 16 char network ID. When I did that, it brought over both the second TP-Link module and the second D-lInk it was pair with. So now they're all working together and I was able to move them around the house and have them reconnect automatically.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Fallout 4 - PC
Pros: - In general, Fallout 4 is a lot of fun.
- Good RPG element, even if the pre-written storyline is lackluster. The HUGE amount of content generates an adventure around the player, IMO.
- The number of buildings and unique constructions in the game world is impressive
- Crafting system is good
- Difficulty seems very well balanced
- Phone/Tablet integration is genius
Cons: - Skills in the game don't really provide anything you can't get another way. Replay value is diminished because of this
- A few graphical issues and crashes, but they are reasonably rare.
Other Thoughts: I was almost scared away by the reviews of people who played and enjoyed Fallout 3 and New Vegas. I enjoyed both as well, but I also am liking Fallout 4 50 hours into it. While the pre-written storyline is kind of lame (it was in Fallout 3 too), it doesn't hurt the gameplay IMO. There's so much to do, and locations to explore that 20-30 hours in, my experience has been like a story in and of itself. I really enjoy that about certain games and it makes them more memorable, IMO.READ FULL REVIEW
