Pros: Easy to setup. Web interface is easy to navigate, easy to understand. Lots of features. 3x omni directional antennas gives is very good signal, low db, excellent dual band signal quality. Would recommend for any home or small office.
Cons: Nowhere on the box or in the manual could I find a legend describing the meaning of lights on the front of router. Not worth deducting a star over, just kind of annoying. TP Link being a new company must have over looked it.
TP link TL-WDR4300 - Excellent Price/Performance Router

Summary: I found the GUI and the setup easy and painless. I believe any first time user could navigate through it without problem. I like the design layout as it fits perfectly on my desk and looks good too. We have 2 Xbones, 2 PS3's, 2 PS4's, 5 PCs, a laptop, and 3 phones that share our Wi-Fi. Our 2 sons are always playing games on one system or another. When not, we are streaming shows or movies.
Pros: + Nice desktop design/layout + Power and Wi-Fi On/Off switches + Dual bands + Easy set up with or without mini cd + 2 USB ports + Decent signal range + Gigabit Ports + Price per performance per features
Cons: - Signal range not as strong as previous router (nit picking)
Summary: I'm actually really happy with this router and its performance. I put off reviewing it for a very long time expecting eventually problems would appear, because several users had reported problems. Despite this, I haven't had any problems at all. I am using the original firmware still even and things work wonderful.
Pros: Fast Performance Easy Setup Good Layout user interface Lots of controls USB Performance is good
Cons: Very small con, with USB 3.0 being out for a while now it would be nice if at least one USB port had been upgraded to USB 3.0. Not a major issue, so no egg deduction.
Summary: This is a very inexpensive router for what you would be getting and does have a lot of useful features that most power users like myself expect from a router but this is not the ideal router for anyone who wants to have a professional network in their private space. If you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg and don’t mind a little finagling to make it do exactly what you want then this router will do exactly what you want.
Pros: Right off the bat I noticed that this competitively priced router does do a pretty good job of delivering what it promises. One of the stand out features include the fact that it has external antennas that can be replaced if you would like to use the larger high gain antennas that can help improve transmission performance over large spaces. Another related feature to the antenna would be that the router can operate in dual band mode to improve throughput to certain de...
Cons: This is a very solid budget router and as long as the devices quality is up to snuff and doesn’t die after 6 months will be a great buy for anyone as long as you don’t mind some of these minor complaints. I basically had to nit-pick this device due to it being such a solid performer. The only real things that disappointed me about this device were that it is a little bulky compared to some of its direct competition (but does make up for it with a great feature set) an...
Summary: This router is surprisingly amazing. Yes, it’s a responsive dual-band router, but its functionality is exponentially higher because of the USB ports. It allows you to share files off an USB hard/thumb drive, but won’t completely replace your media center as it doesn’t output a video stream. Along with file sharing you can hook up a printer to one of the USB ports. It does support a large number of printers, however, mine was not.
Pros: This is a full featured dual-band router with a powerful Wi-Fi signal. It offers much more than a simple router: FTP access, File sharing, media serving, and USB printer sharing via the two available USB ports. Has a very responsive and full-featured web interface. Latest firmware upgrade was hassle-free. Gigabit Ethernet. Physical Power and WiFi toggles. Can be used as a router or as an access point using stock firmware. It flawlessly served mp3 and mp4 files to a PS...
Cons: Does not offer AC speeds, however it doesn’t come at AC price. Can’t login over SSH – port is shown as open, but connections won’t establish. Not surprising; you’ll apparently have to use a different firmware for SSH access. USB media wasn’t readable when I tried to expand the USB ports with a hub.
Summary: This is a good mid-end router. It doesn't have the high wireless transfer rates that expensive routers have, but it is not trying to compete with high-end routers. It is well priced for its features. I really like the modern design of this router. That being said, I think it would have looked better if the logo in the center of the body was back lit and the front indicator lights were white rather than green.
Pros: - Modern Design looks good - Power button and WiFi on /off switch - Guest network on both 2.4 and 5 GHz bands - Guest network bandwidth limits - Good user interface with plenty of configuration options
Cons: - Center antenna is not centered!!! - Both USBs are only 2.0 - Green front LED indicator lights
Summary: Failed to verify wan settings, even when Clone Mac Address selected (Comcast), but as noted, a reboot (or unplugging and plugging back in) of the cable modem resolved the issue. There are many other features available that I have not yet used (parental control, forwarding, etc.). Overall, it is a polished product with good interface and support.
Pros: The TP link TL-WDR4300 Dual Band Wireless N750 Router comes with the router, power adapter brick, Ethernet cable, mini CD and some documents and manuals. Connecting the three adjustable antennas and following the quick installation guide was sufficient to get started and make the necessary connections. The color coding for the ports makes it easy to distinguish the ports on the back, with blue for internet (i.e. cable modem) and yellow for wired connections to PCs. Th...
Cons: Shipped with Firmware 3.13.33 Build 130617 Rel.46239n, but there was a newer firmware version available, so I installed build 141113. It fixes a few bugs.
Summary: I first installed this in my own home, coverage was good for our small place. But I am often spending time at my father-in-laws place troubleshooting his network issues, so I installed this there where I hoped it would make a difference. I disabled the wireless on his hamster powered CenturyLink DSL modem/router and plugged the TP-Link WDR3400 N750 in to port 1. It made a HUGE difference right away.
Pros: - Easy setup - TP-Link firmware is easy to use and navigate - Strong signal - Good range - 3 antennae’s - Gigabit ports (should be standard, but some ISP’s don’t think so) - Dual bands
Cons: - Print server tool has to be installed on all computers (OSX & Windows clients available) - I found the Print Server tool to be tedious use, we’ll see how it works over time - Large footprint that can only be position flat on a surface
Summary: Router has great coverage in my 1400 square foot home. The step by step "Quick Setup" was a breeze. TP-LINK offers a software based setup with their included CD or a browser based setup which is what I opted for. I try to avoid installing unessential software whenever possible. My favorite feature by far is the dual USB ports, the router this replaced only had a single port which allowed us to share an external hard drive.
Pros: Great range, quick setup, wall mountable, runs cool, simultaneous dual band, gigabit LAN, dual USB ports
