Summary: I bought this product, because it was cheap and seemed like a good use to make the range better in our far bedroom. This actually worked for what we needed. When this powered on it provided an easy setup wizard to connect to my router, and then created a new network ***_EX2 which was good because now I can choose which network to connect to. Just be warned, when you setup the SSID of this Extender, don't make it the exact SSID of the SSID on the router.
Good initial quality, much smaller than image may make you think.

Summary: Initial quality is great. Has on/off switch, much more convenient than TP link product. I turn off this and router when I leave home and not use then for half a day. This one is not as good looking though, but it does work very well, set up with WPS was just as easy, just press WPS button of this extender first and then the one in your router. For routers without WPS, this item has very detailed instruction and comes with a CD also - not sue what it does though.
Summary: I have a 3,000 sq. ft. house with five bedrooms. Needless to say, I wasn't getting very good internet signals in many part of the house. I bought two of Edimax's range extenders EW-7434RPn because of the low price. But getting them to work with my Macbook was very problematic. The instructions that came with the extenders are pretty bad. What they don't tell you is how great their tech support is. I called their USA number -- 1-800-652-6776 -- and spoke to Jeffrey.
Summary: Do the firmware update... I needed wifi in my barn and this does the trick. Location,location,location... Find a good spot for it (use a signal meter if you can) and make sure you set it up correctly. Proper set-up is a pain but very important. It took me a little investigating, through the helpful reviews here, to get it working perfectly.
Summary: This is a great device, inexpensive, easy to move from location to location, small and not noticeable. It would be nice if it had more broadcast power, but for the price, size and mobility it is a non issue. I have read many reviews some are very troubling! One from someone who claims to be an IT professional, don't kid yourself you are a lost lamb. This product works as describe. This is a low budget no frills device, mommy is not going to help you set it up.
great for people who dont mope and complain about small stuff

Summary: I am using this for both home and work. I have just finished testing it 4 times. I am seeing no difference in speed in Mbs between this and a direct wifi connection. (yes if you hook up directly to the router it is going to be faster than wifi... this is a given) I am only seeing a difference here of .03 mbs between direct and the signal booster. The product was easy to set up with all the information it came with, and for the price I love it.
Summary: I received this Wifi extender this about an hour ago and it is already up and running and I definitely notice an increase in signal strength and browsing/streaming speed. Initially I had a little problems hooking it up, but with a call to Tech support they got me up in running in less than 10 minutes. So far so good! Just to give you all an idea of the increase difference.
Summary: I am completely surprised and impressed. This little gadget was fairy simple to set up. When I moved it to my bedroom where I use wireless for my laptop, tablet, phone, and tv. I have been fighting to stay connected in my bedroom for nearly 3 years, to the point that I had pretty much given up on watching streaming at all. After I set the extender up I have a full signal. Turned on Netflix and it loaded right away . No more network error messages!!! Yay!!!
