5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap portable wifi, 15 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item was delivered in about 3 weeks but this was OK as I was in no rush. It does what it says it gives you
1. mobile charging point for your phone
2. wireless extender for your network
3. Wifi access point for your phone, laptop, kindle ect,which is what i bought it for.

First problem I had was the instructions are small and in Chinese!! but a quick search came up with english here
[...]
look at Pendo Power Router
the default password is 12345678 not the one shown in the above manual but the rest is the same.

This is a rechargeable device via USB and claims to last 4 hours which I have not tested yet
If when you log on to the settings page of the router it is all in Chinese press the word English in the top right corner and you are converted back to English.
So it takes a little bit effort works well when all set up.

1.0 out of 5 stars One Word, "RUBBISH", 17 Oct. 2013

Needed rebooting several times in a day on wireless and wired connections, looking at other reviews must be serious quality issues with TP Link and its just chance if you get one that works. Do yourself a favour and buy another brand. Avoid!!

1.0 out of 5 stars AVOID badly designed, 8 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
HDMI does not work at all for me tried 3 TV's Sony, Panasonic, and Supermarket own brand
HDMI does not work out the box, you have to plug in the composite lead first then change the settings menu supposedly. However whatever you select does not work and it just goes back to composite.

Looking at the WD forums this is a problem going back to 2010 and still not fixed!! seems HDMI's are not correctly supported by WD. Funny when a £20 media player I bought from Amazon works no problem.

If they cannot make it work with Sony and Panasonic TV's it must be bad. Save yourself the trouble and buy something else, it's being returned for a refund. I could be unlucky or it could be a crap product and I know which one I chose.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Flakey but working OK at the moment, 24 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unit on trial for now. When it arrived would not work!
Reason, remote has a watch type battery cr2025 which was dead.
This could fool a lot of people as unit comes on just does not do anything.
Trip to the shops to buy new battery as returning unit to much trouble.

Replaced battery and unit now works and plays all files I have asked so far AVI MP4 MKV WMV FLV
Was a bit flakey at first due to random crash's needing the power plug to be pulled to reset box.
This has settled down now and unit working OK for the moment.

Remote built for very small hands and aslo who would think black text on a grey background was a good idea!!! for some keys also remote not as shown on site the black text has replaced the 1,2,3 ect keys.

All in all good idea but let down by poor quality control, Oh and a very bright blue LED in your face but a piece of sticky foam sorted that one out.

Easy to install and use.If you want to adjust your camera, you need the software but not a resource hog , lots of resolutions,I find 1280 x 720HD works well for me and Skype.

This does what it say and works well. Just a couple of tips,
Plug the usb lead into the computer first without the printer to allow the computer load the correct driver for it.
Then make sure you select USB virtual printer port in the printer properties so the printer can use it.
Thats it!
I have a HP laserjet 4 running on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy Tool, 13 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does what it says! Allows you to get to difficult fixings where a straight driver won't do.
Having damaged a previous one (my fault), was happy to find a easily available replacement.
