HWM (Hardware Magazine) in Malaysia has once again found a TP-LINK router worthy of their praise in the TL-WR941ND 300Mbps Wireless Router. Having most recently tested the TL-WR1043ND in their previous month's issue, HWM is only now beginning to get a taste for the value that TP-LINK provides, with reliable, high-quality and easy-to-use products for any number of user requirements.
The TL-WR1043ND's sister product scored an 8.5 out of 10, earning it HWM's silver award. The magazine attributed this high score to its ease of use, where most TP-LINK products score highly, easy to setup for novice users but with easy to access advanced functions for more experienced users via the router's web-based user interface.
After initial setup was completed, the testers paired the router with TP-LINK's TL-WN821N 300Mbps Wireless USB adapter. Directly in front of the router, the 1Gb transfer completed in 4 minutes and 42 seconds with a steady and fast speed of 300Mbps and 10% network throughput. Moved 10 meters away the speed maintained 300Mbps and the transfer completed with a 5-second difference, 4 minutes and 47 seconds with a network throughput of 25%. At 20 meters away for the third test, the transfer completed in 6 minutes and 18 seconds with a speed of 243Mbps and 20% network throughput.
