"Good speed and range... but don't expect anything more."2.0 starson by Renegade_Raul
Pros: - Excellent data speeds (although I think the included speed test software exaggerates it)
- Nice looking
- Seemed pretty reliable (no dropped connections in my brief experience)
- Very good range even through several walls speed remained pretty good
Cons: - At this price range I was expecting more, my previous router cost me $50! and worked well.
- VERY few external hard drives are compatible! Make sure you google to see if your HD will work.
- Problematic setup.
- Tech Support wasn't very helpful.
Summary: I was leaning towards the Airport Extreme but this router had better reviews from cnet. Setup was problematic it just didn't go smoothly (Never had any problems with any previous routers). After all was said and done, the signal was strong and fast BUT I cant stand behind this price. Specially since I cant use it with my WD MyBook HD. At this price point everything should work spectacularly right out of the box! I didn't want to sound like an Apple Fanboy but I will be exchanging it for the Airport Extreme. Apple has always been straightforward, no caveats. And im sure it will work well with my Macbook and my HFS+ formatted external hard drive.
