Seems like a decent price for a well reviewed AC1750 dual-band range extender with gigabit port. Also available from Maplin for the same price I believe.

Description:
Tired of Wi-Fi 'dead zones'? The TP-Link AC1750 Wi-Fi Range Extender connects to your router wirelessly, strengthening and expanding its signal into areas it can't reach on its own. The device also reduces signal interference to ensure reliable Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home or office.

The RE450 comes with next generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology; 3x faster than the standard 802.11n speeds. The RE450 delivers fast dual band speeds of up to 1750 Mbps, providing reliable connections for bandwidth-intensive tasks like HD/4K streaming, lag free gaming, and large file downloads. A Gigabit Ethernet port turns the extender into a wireless bridge, letting you connect a wired device to your Wi-Fi network.

The extender RE450 works with any standard wireless router, and instantly connects by pressing the extender's RE button followed by the router's WPS button (if available). Once connected with an existing router, you can use the built in indicators to find the perfect place to put the RE450, with no further configuration required.

Mine went back - refused to pick up my 5Ghz network from my Asus router. Went for a Netgear instead which worked straight out of the box.

Same with mine. It was a piece of junk. Avoid this is my advice.

That's a shame. According to the reviews on Amazon it seems to work for a lot of people. Did you have the same Asus router?

I bought mine a week or so ago (at this price) because of this article:

No pal. I've got a TP-Link router. Thought it would all play nice together. I get 2/3 bars WiFi in the living room (router is upstairs) and it works better than this did on full strength. I was forever having to restart it as it would randomly disconnect itself. Although the lights on it would remain blue. Had it for about 3 months, then complained to Amazon. They were going to replace it but luckily they had no stock so issued me a refund instead.

They probably tested it short term. Bet after a week they binned it.

I was interested for a few seconds, then I saw tplink, and then I wasn't interested anymore.

The Toilet Paper link router is faultless.

I've got the smaller AC750 one (RE210) and it works great, using it for my YouView box with the TalkTalk router but I've also tested it will a Buffalo AC1300 router.
