TP-LINK TL-WA860RE-E 300 Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender / Repeater with Power Outlet Pass-through, Dual External Antennas, One-button Setup, Smart Signal Indicator (Easy-open package)

Pros: WIFI EXTENDER without a doubt the longest range of any of the extenders I have reviewed I get a range of over 125’ from house with it. Most of the extenders have had a range of about 75’ using same laptop walking the same path out the back with signal through two exterior walls and same settings. Then I connected it to the WIFI signal from Router and it immediately found and connected to it and all went smoothly no hang-ups at all. Played with it at a range of about 50’ from the unit and kept a constant connection and above middle signal strength the entire time. Then I did speed tests and compared to my Router vs WIFI extender and got similar results as with the other WIFI extenders. This unit has a pass through outlet so you don’t lose an outlet like so many others. It also has the Ethernet port which about half do and half don’t have. I can highly recommend this extender over the others I have tested due to its better range, no the range of it is not as good as my router but I have a very good router in system that gets signal about 200’ from house before drops off.

Cons: : as with all WIFI extenders the speed on it drops compared to what you get with a wired or connection to router WIFI I get about 90Mbps WIFI without extender and about 60Mbps with extender but this also is better than all the other WIFI extenders I have reviewed over the past few years

Other Thoughts: Lenovo ThinkPad T430 Intel I5 2.6GHz 8GB RAM windows 10 Pro 64 bit OS using built in WIFI connection
Router is Xfinity Cisco Modem/Router unit

Pros: First thing I had to do was leave it in packaging to let it warm up to room temperature since FEDEX does not heat the back end of delivery trucks and it was in the teens out there today. Put it in an Orico docking station and tried to clone my computer to it, it partitioned the drive for windows 10 Pro 64 bit no problem then it failed to clone 3 times in a row deleted partitions each time and tried again and same results I used Reflect by Macrium for cloning drive I have no idea if was a software issue or what, then I put it in my backup laptop and installed windows 10 pro on it without any problems took about 15 minutes from start to boot up. Then I deleted all partitions and set it up for PS4 and all went well I see absolutely no problems with this drive it is plenty fast but not as fast as an SSD only drive but much faster than a plain HDD. Good price factor good warranty on the drive. There is enough storage for a laptop for 99% of people if it isn’t then get the 2TB version if need more space than that you will have to settle for external drives. I finally found a drive worth replacing the original one in PS4.

Cons: : only problem I had with the drive as I mentioned was the inability to clone my computer to it but as I also said I do not know if it was a software issue or hardware issue.

Other Thoughts: DELL Latitude E6420 8GB RAM
