Summary: Hardware is great, and a poe injector that is worth the price alone. Doesn't mean much if you don't need a poe injector, but the access point is worth the price itself. The firmware interface is kind of junk, but everything is there, and that is a set it up once and never see it again stuff anyway. WISH THEY MADE ONE IN 5ghz! Read that TP-Link? Not near as happy with their flagship 802.11ac dual-band router (that I just use as an access point.
Excerpt: Incredibly easy to set up and gets the job done. I have tried it out in a couple different modes: bridge and repeater. Both modes worked as intended. In repeater mode, my internet speed test was about 25% of typical speed. Next, I am going to re-set up as a client, wouldn't expect any problems.

Summary: As a networking professional, I tend to be a stickler when it comes to consumer grade equipment. However, I am very impressed with this access point. The range of this WAP is fantastic. The real winner is the inclusion of power over Ethernet. It's a great feature and makes deploying this WAP a breeze. Just inject power in from the origin location and you're good to go.
Summary: I have been using this for about 3 weeks now, overall it has been a great unit. The setup was a little bit of a pain, follow the instructions provided and it will all be well. The signal is good and connection speeds are awesome. In many cases it runs faster then the devices that I have connected to the network via network cables.
Pros: This Access Point is great for the money. The setup is quick and relatively painless. The PoE is a welcomed addition. The range is great. No real complaints on the functionality of the AP whatsoever.
Cons: Support is HORRIBLE. We have purchased 5 of these to distribute wireless across two buildings. One of them started going down every other couple of days. It worked after a power reset, but then would go back down a couple days later. Called their support line. First, a message told me that they simply weren't able to take my call and then hung up. What?!? I called back. The message about being unable to take my call started, but then the phone began ringing. The perso...
Pros: Throughout or manufacturing facility to run various wireless devices like touchscreen computers and Wireless IP Cameras. I have honestly not have a problem with a single one or had to reboot since installing them several months ago. I have them all set on different channel with the same SSID and I can stream a video as I walk through the office and throughout the entire facility and never buffer the video.
Cons: I wish the POE was built into the LAN port and did not require a separate adapter but I knew this when I bought them.
