Pros: I use this within a large home. It feeds wife to 2 PS3s, a Kindle, 2 Android phones, an nvdia Shield, 2 laptops running Win7, a tablet using Win8, and a Visio DID player that does Netflix streaming. Oh and a Chromecast. So ignore people saying they have compatibility issues. They are doing something wrong. Setup is the standard TP link Web interface and is easy to navigate.
Cons: It is meant to be pole mounted. I zip tied it to the supports in the attic and it went fine. Fires in a cone, not a sphere, so put it at the end of the zone you want to cover, not the middle
Summary: Very easy setup, worked great. The longest part of setup was actually getting it mounted to wall. I got full signal on my laptop about 200 feet away, with a house between. Tried an EnGen*** product before, it would only give me 1 of 5 bars in same spot.
Pros: long range, good throughput, easy setup.
Cons: pole mount ONLY. wanted to just screw on side of building, it would not mount flat, has a 'C' shaped pole mount molded on back. I had to screw a short piece of conduit to the wall and then mount to that.
Summary: This unit has both a quick setup and the more advanced setup configurations available. Both work well, as I used the quick setup to test my setup then went into the advanced config to add wireless security and AP isolation. The TP-Link is mounted to a metal pole 12 feet high and the signal rocks some 2500 feet away over fairly level ground (high desert).
Summary: I have three of these on my hotel property as access points to provide wifi to guests. They handle the load really well. The hotel buildings are spread over 5 acres and there are no dead spots anywhere. I purchased these to replace 3 hawking howabn1 units, these are much much better for way way less money. The hawking units kept getting blasted by lightning.
Pros: Inexpensive. Great interface. Easy to configure. Awesome range.
Summary: This product is totally awesome. I had little to no bars on my wifi out on my deck 50ft from cable block and main pc, before i got this.Nowwith this product, no matter where I go within 30.1 miles..oh yea that much, I have full str on my wifi. Seems overkill, but you can adjust distance of output. Has password option which means i can sit in my car 5 mile away and still be on my wifi at full str. I'm sure it would be excellent for any farm besides at home.
Summary: Anyone that has issues connecting any device other than win 7: Go to the internal setup page, change your wireless security settings to WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK, auto everything. I have 1 Mac, 4 android devices (2 cells and 2 tablets), my Wii, and 2 win 7 devices connected and no problems at all.
Pros: First off, POE is an amazing thing. Lots of settings including AP mode, AP client mode, repeater mode, or bridge mode. Such a breeze setting it up. Internal admin page has easy to use layout. You can even adjust the output range for smaller areas.
Cons: Not very flexible mounting options, comes with zip ties for the pole mounts. I'd have liked to see better hardware come standard for mounting it, something to the akin of muffler clamps maybe? Also, add some rubber feet to those mounts so they don't slide down the pole.
Summary: Used this at a customer installation to get wireless to a guest house 800' from the house. Was able to place the TP Link at the full 60m limit and got 3 of 4 bars connection on a laptop inside the guest house - not by a window. Great solution!
Pros: Can place the unit up to 60m from the source (limited by POE not network communication).
Cons: Did not notice the 60m limit on POE in the quick setup guide
