TRENDnet TEW-654TR N300 Wireless Travel Router Kit IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Not bad, gets really hot! 06/12/2013

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-654TR N300 Wireless Travel Router Kit IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: It's small, comes with a nice little zip up case and a flat CAT5 cable. It has all the basic features.

Cons: I usually have to unplug and plug it back in again within the first 5 minutes of setting it up. I'm not sure what the deal is, but it will stop transferring data until it's reset the first time. After that it's fine.
It gets HOT. Not just a little, A LOT. Doesn't seem to effect operation.
Poor signal. Not really a big issue, but in a standard hotel room when placed in one corner of the room, you'd be hard pressed to get a signal from the other end of the same room. Since my intent is security from hotel networks, it doesn't bother me that much, but if you're looking for something that can broadcast a wireless signal a decent ways, look elsewhere.

Other Thoughts: It's not a bad little router really. I needed something to put up a wall between insecure hotel networks and my computer. This little thing fits the bill and it's very portable.

EnGenius ERB9250 Wireless N Range Extender

5 out of 5 eggs Using three in a Bed & Breakfast 05/20/2013

This review is from: EnGenius ERB9250 Wireless N Range Extender

Pros: These things setup quick and work beautifully. I installed three of these in a local Bed & Breakfast and I've only had one fail me and that was my fault. I set it up in a window and it overheated. EnGenius RMA'd it no problem. Took about two weeks to get the replacement.

Cons: Yes, these will cut down your bandwidth by half. That is the nature of wireless networking. The half is only for each consecutive connection. i.e. the first repeater cuts half for each connection to it. if you apply a second repeater off the first repeater it will cut half of that bandwidth or a quarter of the initial connection to its clients. This is the nature of wireless distributed networking. The only way to combat this is with a MIMO (multi in multi out) router. MIMO will help maintain consistent connections better than most non-MIMO routers.

Other Thoughts: All that said, if you have a full N wireless network with all 300Mb/s hardware, you really shouldn't have any issues with the bandwidth cut from a single repeater.

PNY XLR8 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's fast and I got a great deal on it.

Cons: It seems like almost once a week I have to fiddle with it to get the BIOS to recognize it again. Every so often the computer won't boot because this drive just disappears. No rhyme or reason, then it just suddenly shows up again.

Other Thoughts: Mobo: ASRock Z77 Pro
Proc: Intel 2500K
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB Dual Channel Kit
Graphics: Nvidia GTX 560Ti
