TP-LINK Archer T4UH AC1200 High Gain Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter
TP-LINK Archer T4UH AC1200 High Gain Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter
Price: £22.18

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant kit, 23 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant!
I've got superfast cable broadband and until now have only had access to 2G band via my old wifi dongle. That did its best and maxed at 144MBPS at 100% reception (router in lounge downstairs, PC and wifi dongle upstairs bedroom).
With a recent upgrade in speed from my broadband supplier, I decided I needed a new dongle that could access the 5G bandwidth with the faster speeds. Initially tried a BrosTrend AC600 which, although it could access both 2G and 5G, the speeds were never close to my old apparatus.
Today the TP-Link AC1200 arrived. Plugged in, installed driver + utility and got maxed out / same speed on 2G as the old faithful but now also got 5G at 100% so far maxing at 360MBPS.
Thoroughly recommend investing a bit more money for high quality kit.

Happy that this adaptor could find and access both 5G and 2G feeds available from my router. It did return speeds faster using the 5G as I would expect, however, the speeds in both cases were well below my previous adaptor which could only access 2G.

The router is downstairs, my main PC is upstairs.

So not very happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars So very 5 star., 16 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Full of good ideas and great art. When you turn a page, a picture will appear on RHS with title and brief description, including artists aims, used on LHS. LHS also includes annotated icons to indicate key methods adopted e.g. collage, digital etc.
The book is well made and nice to handle.
Also see Helen's "Just Add Watercolour" for another 5 star art book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mountaineering frollicks in 1960s Norway, 16 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting account of the twins escapades going up and down (not always as planned) Norwegian mountain. The author has tried to put himself back in the young mind he had at the time with some success. Reasonably well written although not quite as accomplished a writer as e.g. Jon Krakauer (see "Into Thin Air"). I'm not a mountaineer but still enjoyed it.
7/10.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not ultimate but very good, 6 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Plenty of questions, well 10,000 to be precise. Divided into Easy, Medium and Hard. Unfortunately in my opinion there are too many easy - %age split is roughly 40:40:20 respectively. Questions come in groups of 30 under headings such as Pot Luck, Sport, Movies, Books, TV etc..
Answers are sometimes a bit terse. A further sentence might have better explained why an answer was correct e.g. where it's a 50/50 choice between 2 options.

I have it because it is reputed to help one's prostate. Tastes quite nasty so maybe it is good for one.
