    "Fast !...4 star...Stream Netflix without a hitch....Great price for this one too at 150 bucks, I only wish I had looked more into the details when I bought the laptop a year before (been waiting for the city to get its act together with fiber for 2 years!) but its all good, the gig wifi card for the laptop is only about 11 bucks, and the cost for a new laptop with gig wifi already built in is WAY more."

    "nice ....love it...Remotes, internet streaming devices, etc all worked fine....For connectivity on the router itself, it marks off the important checkboxes - USB 3 connection for a hard drive or flash drive, USB 2 for a printer or another flash or hard drive that doesn't need to transfer data as fast, a gigabit ethernet connection to whatever your internet connection is brought into your home with, and a 4 port gigabit ethernet switch."
