What customers say about "Key Specs"
TP-LINK RE450 AC1750 Universal Dual Band Range Extender
  • Best range extender i've used - full 350mb speeds on 5Ghz.
  • I set it up with my access points downstairs and took it upstairs to the hallway, and now all rooms are serviced so well with a decent wifi speed.
  • These are awesome, the 5ghz pushes out the exact bandwidth of my router and probably more if you have a speedy connection.
  • Before install we were getting very low speeds, and contentious drop outs. WiFi signal is now stable and not far off full speed is available.
  • Signal speed hadn't improved much, only by 5 mbps.
TP-LINK RE650 AC2600 Universal Dual Band Range Extender
  • Easy to use and good so far. Fast speed!
  • Improved WiFi performance greatly. Perfect speed for my needs.
  • Works very well. Awesome speed, really fast.
  • Great device for my house. Good range and speed.
  • Slowed down my upload speed. Really slow speed.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
TP-LINK RE450 AC1750 Universal Dual Band Range Extender
  • It fits in a double socket well enough without hindering the adjoining socket.
  • It’s small enough that it’s not hogging more than a single standard wall socket. Great stuff!
  • A compact, nice looking unit that was very easy to set-up.
  • My only gripe would be that it is larger than I imagined, being the size of a large 'plus' size phone.
  • Bigger than I envisaged so check that you are happy with the size.
