Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

TP-Link’s Archer A7 is great for smaller spaces; for about half the price of our main pick you get nearly as good performance...
If you're looking to bring dual-band networking to a small dwelling without spending a lot of money, the TP-Link Archer A7 will fill the bill.
The TP-Link AC1750 Smart WiFi Router (Archer A7-V5) offers the fastest throughput speeds we’ve seen recently from a budget router.
This router is fantastically easy to use and retails for much less than most of the competition, earning it a Best Buy award.

What reviewers didn't like

Its long-range performance was spotty and its file transfer speeds were very slow, most likely due to the use of USB 2.0 technology.
The A7’s interface would use an update to accompany the new version (V5), however, and its file-transfer could be better.
The TP-Link Archer C7 undeniably failed to impress in our range or throughput testing and is noticeably sparse in terms of features
