    Steve, South Africa. 11 September 2015

    Absolute junk. Tried to get a second networkd to route through it to the Internet without any luck. TP-Link support also useless, as they still haven't come back to me. I am about to ask Takealot for a refund.

    Trevor B, South Africa. 1 November 2015

    Great all round performer for the price. Setup easy. Well worth the money.

    Japie, South Africa. 28 January 2015

    Bang for Buck! Was a bit skeptical at first with the low price but works beautifully. Easy setup and a 1TB external 2.5 inch works well with the built-in media server and FTP server. WiFi range is impressive as well.

    Michael, South Africa. 7 August 2014

    Excellent router, especially for such a good price. Works far better than the D-link and Billionton routers I was using before. Wi-fi range is also very good - much better than I am used to. Top product.

    Barry, South Africa. 19 December 2014

    For the features you get and the price you pay its a good deal. Only thing is I must have gotten one of the bad ones.
    Randomly, my internet will drop although all the lights stay on and it says link still up. 30 seconds later it works again.
    Tried restoring factory settings, firmware upgrade, problem still persists. Google search shows that if def has this problem
    with no fix yet. (second time I'm typing this internet dropped the first time)

    Frans, South Africa. 27 February 2015

    Very good little router for the price. Easy set-up, removable antennae a big plus. Can't fault it.

    elrick, South Africa. 28 October 2014

    Best router ever

    Jason, South Africa. 30 May 2014

    An excellent piece of equipment, and I have to say that the Takealot price is the best I could find in South Africa.

    Julian, South Africa. 11 November 2016

    For the price, I would say it's a best buy. It works exactly how it should and the upside is that it comes with a 3 year warranty incase you run into some trouble.

    Adriaan, South Africa. 6 June 2014

    Easy to use and very good range.

    FC, South Africa. 18 September 2015

    WiFi speed drops 3 to 4 times a day to about 25% of normal speed. Need to switch Modem off/on to get the correct speed again.

    France, South Africa. 24 February 2015

    The router was very easy to install. Not more than 10 minutes on ethernet and wireless setup and I am not an expert. Extremely satisfied.

    Gerry, South Africa. 18 December 2014

    Easy to set up, and works like a dream.

    Mooniq, South Africa. 6 August 2014

    Easy to setup (I'm an average computer user). Works well, my WIFI range has increased. Really good value for the price.

    Barry, South Africa. 30 May 2014

    Very hard to fault this ADSL Router, given the price point. Replaced my 11-year old Mega 100WR with this router and managed to finally sync full-on, and rock-stable, at 10Mb/s. Very straightforward to set up with the ability to configure nearly all aspects of the device on a granular level.

    Zunayde, South Africa. 31 October 2014

    Brilliant device for the price, great Wi-Fi signal. Many features for a router in this price range. Would recommend.

    Brian, South Africa. 9 June 2014

    Served with excellent. Delivered before due date, no worries, no stress. Thank you.

    Mk786, South Africa. 17 February 2015

    Great product for the price. performs decently. overall worth my money

    Tim, South Africa. 25 February 2015

    I've had it now for a few months and it works great. I can't say that I have had any issues. It was easy to set up and manage. My only bit of upset was that I was hoping it would give wider covereage in my house than my old modem/router (a very old MWeb Billion one), but it hasn't really made much of a difference on that front.

    Andries, South Africa. 7 December 2016

    The best summary is probably: cheap'n'cheerful, does all the basics and quite easy to set up. Scores well on value-for-money and/or being parentals-friendly.
    While it advertises being able to do IP filtering, it only filters outgoing traffic... a very odd choice. I want to limit the address ranges/blocks for incoming traffic to mitigate those non-stop password hacking attempts against the router.
    It has stuff like print server and media server enabled by default. Not great for security out of the box.

    Mark, South Africa. 20 July 2015

    Excellent value for money, 3G fail over seamless

    Nicholas, South Africa. 12 March 2015

    I cannot fault it. It was easy to setup, has far more features than I could ever imagine (go check out the user manual on TP-Link's web site). Wi-Fi and ADSL have been solid, no dropped connections on either.

    Ryan, South Africa. 1 September 2015

    Great product! Works just fine out of the box and on the plus side, comes with it's own splitter.

    Adriaan, South Africa. 24 November 2016

    Great router with easy setup and value for money. Took me less than 10 minutes from opening the box until WiFi was running.

    Vincent, South Africa. 7 December 2016

    Had one of these routers for the past 5 years and never had a days crap with it never dropped connections. Had to buy another as lightening hit my first one. not to prcey and works well.

    Terry, South Africa. 3 March 2015

    Super easy setup. Love that it is accessible from a web browser with a simple URL.
    The USB port really works like a dream. Was able to share media from a 2.5" external that was also being powered through the USB port, within a minute. Easily accessible from my PS3, as well as my Xperia Z1 and Galaxy Tab 3 using BubbleUPnP.

    All the other standard features also work really well. Really amazing product for a super affordable price.

    Brian, South Africa. 26 June 2014

    Bought this device - excellent so far. Would recommend it. I haven't tested most of the features, but it certainly has more than I need for the home.

    Peter, South Africa. 12 June 2015

    small, good range, stays cool,
    It friends with my studio: pc, iMac, hp printer.
    but has a love hate relationship with my macmini. (maybe Yosemite fault but Mac mini has no problem connecting to any other hotspot)
    we use a VKom usb modem attached, no problem setup is easy (for me)

    Francois, South Africa. 13 February 2015

    Pretty reliable and plenty of features in the firmware. Solid buy for the household user. Not appropriate for professional office uses due to short reception on the WiFi. Allot of modem for little money.

    Trevor, South Africa. 7 December 2016

    Great product for the price - does what it says!

    Paul, South Africa. 7 December 2016

    At the price it is a great buy. It is easy to set up once you get past the situation that South Africa is not listed on the set up menu. The Wi-Fi and ADSL connection quality is good.
