Summary: Good features and performance for only $50. This is my second piece of gear from TP-Link and so far both have been performing great. I'd have to say TP-Link is my new favourite value brand for networking gear.
Pros: Lots of features for the price:, - dual band, - guest network, - media streaming
Cons: Kinda nit-picking here..., Admin password is limited to 12 characters., No tomato firmware support. (Though DD-WRT is available), Kinda big and can't stand vertically.
Summary: I was looking for a better router to replace existing DLINK 605L, cause weak signal strength and small ranger for a three bedroom apt. Based on searched reviews, it seems good one for both performance and price. But I am very disappointed, even worse than DLINK 605L totally, the one which got at $25 on last black friday. I have updated the latest firmware and changed relative configuration, just 2.4G tested, after all just hours wasted. BTW, I am an IT professional.
Summary: Bought this to replace roger's little box, which had bad range of connections. I am pleased with the outcome. highly recommend this to any home users, especially if u want good connection on all floors.
Pros: Excellent range and speed. Build Quality is above average. Easy to setup. I like the Wi-fi secured button design. No need to use mac addresses.
Cons: nothing to complain especially when i got this under 40 bucks.
Summary: After bricking my tomato e1200 that gave me no hiccup as a wireless ethernet bridge, I purchased this router to install open source firmware and replace it. However, there is no real support for 3500 yet and probably won't be (3600 is supported however). There is a trunk version of openwrt floating around but I would not recommend it (I ended up having to reflash stock via scp).
Pros: Cheapest dual band router with decent hardware, surprisingly reliable and fast
Cons: Worked for 2 days. Locked up the 3rd. Then almost every day after that. As in it wouldn't even respond to pings, or able to login locked up. A power cycle and it would be back for a few hours. Tried a reset to factory defaults but same issues. Went back to my old Zyxel with no issues and sent this one back for RMA. Spend the extra money and get a better Buffalo or Linksys dual band router.
