Samsung SmartThings Wi-Fi reviews
I really liked everything about this router/hub combo (size, simplicity, range, etc.). The only two things that pulled it down was being unable to adjust key router settings and all the issues with the app (two versions, difficult to connect, limited device handlers, etc.).
Pros: Simple setup Strong signal range Great size and shape Seems to rebound quickly from power/connection changes
Cons: Unable to access router settings (at least be able to hide SSID) Still difficult to connect with many common devices Little warm so hoping enough ventilation to keep circuits cool
