Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

It is a low-cost device built to help improve or add WiFi in many different wireless environments. While testing I had no problems connecting the unit to the router and using any of the modes.
One of these plug-in devices can get an extra 20 devices connected to the web in minutes. As well as the 1,200Mbps wireless speed you've also got an Ethernet port that you can use for a more stable, wired connection to something like a streaming box or a video games console.

This WiFi range extender offers an overall range of 1,200 ft of coverage for your home.
Being a dual-band Wi-Fi booster, your network will never get congested. Many household devices use the 2.4 GHz radio frequency which increases the probability of Wi-Fi signal interference. This interference slows down the internet speed, reduces the Wi-Fi range, and sometimes causes intermittent signals. With a dual-band Wi-Fi booster, you can assign some devices the less utilized 5GHz frequency with ease.
Comes with a two-year warranty and altogether offers quite a bit for the price, or in short, it is the best Wi-Fi extender in the affordable market.
Setting up the extender is simple, thanks to the WPS button. You also get LED indicators for signal strength and power.
This unit has three different functions. It can be used as an extender, an extender and client bridge and as an access point.

What reviewers didn't like

Support takes time to respond emails.
A bit bulky.
Has a boxy design. And with both the antennas extended, it will take a significant space on your wall outlet. The ideal thing to would be to place it in a single electrical outlet, which you rarely use.
Included instructions are limited.
