Derby GB
Very neat. Fits 13amp socket and remains snug to wall. Discrete and unobtrusive. Certainly extends range of router considerably, through two dense brickwalls.
Power consumption, though not high, is not inconsequential either, considering it is left on for many hours. This may apply to all other range extenders also. I'm not an expert on these items.

Milton Keynes GB
Light, portable, once connected to wi-fi it is very easy to use at any point and has extended our range by a welcome 20 ft or so down our back garden.
Setup instructions were poor and website to use manual setup wizard was not accessible. URL not available WPS option didn't work. It took hours of trial and error to get the device connected.

Great Wakering GB
So easy to use (with BT home hub 3, used WPS). Extended my signal from the router at front of house, plugged this into socket at rear of house and we get a signal down the bottom of a 100' garden.
