Pros: -easy to add to network, GUI wizard is concise and logical.
-looks new, not refurbished, factory cellofan wrapped, in new factory box
-dual band allows netwoork speed optimization
-can be used as a WiFi network adapter for a desktop computer
-reliably works and doesn't require any maintenance/reboots

Cons: -does not expand network over pretty standard 2 years old TP-Link WiFi router

Other Thoughts: I have it installed in a cottage with main WiFi router on the first floor and the "extender" on the second. Connecting extender was not a problem , the only limit was that my 2 years old router does not have 5 GHz band so I could not use speed boost mode from extender. The extender cover whole house, similarly to the router and signal obviously stronger closer you get to the extender. However, while outside, I cannot see any improvement for the signal range. The range is basically the same or worse for the extender network compare to main router, even though the extender located at higher point. I think the extender use could be beneficial for buildings with a lot of metal in walls . The extender would allow for WiFi to reach "around corners". In environment with no high density disturbance router with bigger antenna is more effective for extending WiFi range. The RE200 built in antenna can not compete with external antennas of a router. However I found very interesting LAN port on the extender. It makes it into pretty powerful WiFi adapter for a desktop computer without one and that is how i am going to use it.

Pros: affordable, battery lasts long, announced status of the connection, max volume and battery charge level (when low) , folds to compact size to keep in a bag or even a jacket pocket.

Cons: cannot play when charging

Other Thoughts: Use them for about 6 months and still cannot believe how good they are for the price. I maybe charge them once a month with modest use. Of course if you leave BT connected for a long time the buttery runs out faster. I use them listening to audiobooks about 1.5 - 2 hours daily and cannot be happier. Thanks Bluedio!
