Paul, Norwich

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It works fine. No dropouts so far. My Freesat player can now access BBC iPlayer & ITV Player. Have also connected up my Samsung Blu-Ray player.
Simple setup within 10 minutes using a laptop as WPS connecting button didn't 'handshake'with my EE (to be fair, I've never got the WPS handshake to work with anything!) Overall, very pleased and would recommend.

Carl, Devon Bespoke Computer Builder

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I'm very impressed with this small little box, easy to set-up and does the job well.
Bad points:
Because it's light and small, the cables tend to dictate where it sits.

Peter,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The instructions say that it can't be powered from a USB socket - but actually it seems to work OK when USB powered (which has saved a lot of mess, running an additional mains cable.
Bad points:
WPS would NOT work, and it took a bit of fiddling to connect this device manually - but once connected, has worked fine.

Peter, Enfield IT support

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Works straight out of the box, more reliable than the unit it replaced
Bad points:
Strange, the 5GHz signal strength was a lot lower than the 2.4Ghz signal but I guess this is my router not this unit
