Experience: 2 Days
Quick Setup, easy interface/GUI; fast speeds, price compared to other more expensive units.
Runs hot, no guest access, speed loss at range increases heavily (+50 feet - going outdoors, etc)
Was debating getting this unit or looking into a more expensive unit with better range.

At the price point, within 50 feet, this unit is very fast. Although not dual band like some of the more expensive units (only runs on 2.4Ghz) the speed is great and a big improvement over most ISP provided wireless solutions. Dual band sounds great, but from research I've done 5Ghz isn't all that it is cracked up to be and isn't extremely reliable; after all if you need reliability, then plug the device in and don't use wireless at all. I plugged this unit right into my ISP provided 2WIRE modem, didn't bother DMZ'ing, or bridging the 2WIRE and everything works perfect with little configuration change. Simply created 2 separate subnets and routing was handled automatically by the TrendNet.

The unit runs quite warm, but other than that it does what I needed it do, and provides the speeds that the more expensive units gloat about; it's more than enough to stream 1080P wireless to my Intel 6300N 3x3Mimo card; so not much more I need.

Good signal strength
Fast WiFi
Fast Gigabit
Runs cool
4 SSID (also how you setup "guest" access)
Limited features
Time error with fw
Wireless MAC Filter cannot name names
Shiny finish (finger print magnet)
Very slow firmware update
I was torn between this, WNDR3700 and DIR-655 but gave this a shot because of the TEW-687GA that I have already had for my NAS. Also, I was curious to see if they really matched well as they use the same chips.
My brief tests indicate the matched 450n max out at 135.5Mbps, 300n is over 100Mbps. One floor up, 300n hits 70-80Mbps, 450n hits 100Mbps+. Gigabit is over 350Mbps.
Mine has been running continuously for 130 days (and still counting) with daily WiFi IP camera recordings and lots of WiFi transfer w/o reset or slow down. Not bad.
