Internet Routers
>> It's pretty easy to spot a router that's trying a little bit too hard to be cool. This is one of them, the TEW673GRU router from TRENDnet. Hello, my name is Dong Ngo, who, by the way, as you can see from the [inaudible], just cool when they have you try it out. Now, this TRENDnet router is very different from the other routers. First, it has on top here an LCD screen that replaces the traditional array of LED light that show you styles of the router. This LCD has four navigation buttons for you to work on. You will need to read the manual, or, in my case, figure out by trial and error the function of these buttons. And they have no labels. Even when you have found out how they work, it's going to take some time to get the LCD to show what you want to see. In the end, you kind of miss the LED light that shows you what's going on at a quick glance. The LCD is also only useful when it's within the reach of your hands. And this router tends to be less on the floor at the corner. This is not always the case. The second thing kind of cool about the TRENDnet is the fact that it comes with not one, but two USB ports. These ports can host both printers and external hard drives. Unfortunately, they can only work with one computer at a time and require software install on the computer to make that work. Other than that, this is a true [inaudible] gigabit router. In our test, it offered fast speed, long range, and most importantly, very stable signal. For this reason, it's totally worth its $150 price tag. For more information, check out the indepth review at CNET.com. Once again, my name is Dong Ngo, and this has been the first look at the TRENDnet TEW673GRU [inaudible] gigabit wireless router.
