The TP-Link Archer VR600v is a practical, cost-effective complete solution for the home network. We were particularly impressed by the TP-Link Archer VR600v with its possible WLAN-AC speeds, which can reach up to 1600 Mbit per second. High speed is provided by 4 Gigabit ports and the included Vectoring-enabled VDSL modem. The Archer VR600v can therefore also replace a FRITZ! box on the DSL connection, because analogue and DECT telephones can also be connected. In general, the device can also be used with any Internet service provider.
In our test the model TP-Link Archer VR600v works well, there were only minor weaknesses. These were reflected in a slight increase in energy consumption. Also the USB transfer speed leaves a little to be desired. All in all, however, we can speak of good data transmission. The same applies to device and WLAN security.
