    "Wireless connectivity has been a big problem in my house. I have been looking around for a solution to take care of this problem for a while now. I have noticed that my signal is weak and just overall crap. I got the AmpliFi HD router as a gift and it has been able to take care of the wireless problems that I have been experiencing. This router was kind of hard to set up though easy to use after that."

    "These routers are ok. I don't like that they only provide coverage for 1500 square feet, and honestly I think that is a generous estimate. I think it is probably more like 1200 square feet, so if you have a larger home you are going to need more than one. On the plus side, they are easy to set up and seem very reliable."

    "I needed a new wireless router for my apartment, and I was on a budget due to all the moving costs. I remember using a TP-Link router in the past with somewhat OK results, and figured I would give them a try. What I can say is that this router, while cheap and easy to set up, offers a somewhat unreliable connection. I find myself resetting this router more often than I've had to with other routers. My advice, spend a little more and get something reliable."

    "I tried the TP-Link Talon AD7200 router for my home network and it worked great. It's a really good router and I had no problems getting a signal from my MacBook, iPhone, iPad, TV, or Lifx light bulb. This router was much better than my previous router and really increased the speed of my wifi."

    "I have to keep my router hidden and up high in our bedroom because we have crazy cats who love to attack cords. It was important for me to find a small one that is still powerful. It being good for travel to expand weak Wifi was a big plus. So far, so good. The size is right, and it makes the internet faster in our bedroom."

    "This is a pretty good router if you have access to a wired connection and not WiFi, which is pretty uncommon these days. This is definitely NOT a hotspot, so don't expect it to act as one. The only place I can think this is useful is a convention or trade show setup. "

    "I think out of all routers available on the list on this site, Vilfo is the only one capable of processing VPN connections. I can now access websites that are blocked on my country. After seeing this available on the market, I immediately placed an order. So if you are fond of using VPNs, then I think that this is the router that you need. 😎"

Easy transfer your files from one computer to the other, or download those huge files from the net with ease with the router. I have had no issues with having to reboot it due to connectivity issues. A great product."

    "Decent for what it is, but I had all kinds of connection issues, likely due to the nature of the WiFi where I live. For a "MiFi/VPN" box that wants to do all those things, it really only does the VPN part well; the routing was a little flaky on my unit."
