This review is from: 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: Outlet passthrough
Great range for this little device
This thing is no harder to setup than most, just plug near your router hit the WPS button and when it connects relocate to where you want to extend your range! It copies your current routers SSID settings!
Cons: Only 2.4ghz that can potentially interfere with a lot of household appliances
Other Thoughts: Great little device that extends your wifi coverage pretty reliably. I've had it for about a week with no cutting out and the speeds are fast enough that my mom hasn't complained.
I don't know why people are complaining about the instructions, the only one you need is a fold out that shows you step by step how to set it up with some big pictures. You should already know how to setup an extender anyways as it's virtually the same as every other WiFi extender out there.
Pros: Well packaged inside includes:
3 SP120 RGB fans
1 fan hub that can connect up to 6 of these bad boys
1 controller panel for the hub that has optional cables for external control(more on this later)
Fans are quiet enough you can hear them moving but it's not loud loud by any stretch.
Documentation and enough screws for all 3 fans
All the wires have healthy lengths to them to ensure proper fitment in all cases and the controller panel and the hub both have double sided sticky pads to attach them anywhere you see fit.
Cons: No rubber pads on the fans to reduce vibration noise
Because fans are RGB they have 2 wires coming from them, 1 of which you use to connect to the included fan hub the other plugs into a regular fan header on your motherboard for optional power gain
Other Thoughts: This fan hub is pretty unique. Connected to the 6 port fan hub is the controller panel, with it you can control speed, color of rgbs, and mode of the color. In addition to the controller panel, you get 3 little 2 prong wires that can attach to the controller that you can use say your power button header on your motherboard to connect it to, when you do this pressing your power button would change the mode or speed or color (whatever wire is attached) externally without having to open your case, you can also use any sort of basic wiring with a ground and power to on some sort of switch to do this as well so modders can be creative.
Currently the fan modes are: Breathing, Flickering and static.
Speed modes are simply high medium or low
As for colors, it's RGB so any basic color there is.
I enjoy this product, it was a bit extensive to plug in some fans and get them going but rgbs look good and ive mounted my controller outside my case so i can change my settings at any time.
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WA855RE N300 Wi-Fi Wall Plug Range Extender / Repeater / Access Point
Pros: Very simple to setup, press the WPS button on both your router and this device and it will connect and apply the same settings and extend your network.
Great for getting those little devices within wifi range like a firetv stick or even for me extending my wifi to my driveway while i work on my car.
Wired connection can be useful i suppose but think of it like just another connection, not the regular LAN that we know and love. If this extender loses packets, so will your wired connection.
Cons: Antennas! Not really a huge con i just think that extenders that aren't for performance should have internal antennas for a cleaner look.
Other Thoughts: Does the job even though it's only wireless n on 2.4ghz, but for the price this will do in a pinch.READ FULL REVIEW
