I bought the TREND731-BR router for my parents, who needed to network a few computers, a printer and a DVR. I did not need a high-end wireless router, so I did some research and decided to go with the TrendNet, which was on sale for under $20 dollars. The product arrived very quickly and was easy to un-box and set-up. It only took me a few minutes to set-up and configure.
The Router's web interface was straight-forward and I had no trouble finding any of the features. I was impressed with the range of this router, which was able to cover most of my house, and even my backyard. The Data wireless transfer rates were okay, but only go up to 300/mbs. I do not mind since I do not perform many file transfers or big downloads over wireless. I was a bit disappointed over the lack of Gigabit (1000mb) for LAN files transfers, but I'm not going to play for what I had to pay for this router.
All in all I think this router is a great buy for the money. It is easy to set-up (even if you are not very tech savvy) and supports basic features you would need to get a home network by.
