4 out of 5 eggsWorked Great

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: I had problems with two other routers. Installed this and all is good. Still needed a range extender to get to my son's room though and that's why I gave it 4 stars.

Cons: Range seemed limited.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid stability

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: This router is solid performer. It has been running stable for last three months since day one. Menu screen is outdated compared to major brands, but if you have basic networking kowledge, you should no problem. I bought two. 2nd router is bridged to the main router through 5ghz. 2.4ghz is simultaneously used as AP using different SID. Wireless bridge has been very stable as well.

Cons: The only problem with this router is the range. My router is setup on the 2nd floor. Connection drops in the first floor garage.

3 out of 5 eggsNice Entry level AC router

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: Cost. Dual Band. AC capable. Nice having 2.4 and 5Ghz w A/B/N/AC options.

Cons: Web Interface leave much to be desired. Hard to find firmware updates on the company's support page. If using in Access Point mode, there is no option tp put your gateway in (so you can never update time of the device). Kinda of annoying.

In Access Point mode (After about 2 months) - this router would no loner accept 5gHz connections. Had to reset to factory default and reconfigure the router. Been working fine since then (about 1 week)

Other Thoughts: If you need a cheap 5Ghz or AC solution, this is nice. If you need something more reliable, go for something better.

5 out of 5 eggsRock Solid

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: Works as advertised. Wonderful speed across the board. Replaced an Asus RT-n16. Fast and Stable on latest firmware 1.04 as of 10/26/2014.

Cons: Unit shipped with Firmware 1.03.

Other Thoughts: Contact their tech support for latest firmware file. Their tech support is fast, received file within a business day.

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: Cheap, Fast when it works.

Cons: Unstable. Range unreliable. Crashes often. Ports incompatible with certain devices (like my LG TV).

Other Thoughts: It's not worth the frustration, even at the bargain price I got it at. Bad firmware problems.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor signal, constant crashes

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: Looked cool. Works well if your devices are in the same room... External antenna was easy to position.

Gigabit ports? I'm really trying...

Cons: Constantly crashed- most likely due to subpar firmware. Very limted features.

Signal strength on both bands 2.5 and 5Ghz were disappointing.

3 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: Cheap and relatively easy to set up.

Cons: Weak signal strength. Even when I'm sitting in the same room, my phone says the signal is only fair. Devices in other rooms suffer from poor bandwidth or continually drop the connection. I could also never get WPS to work.

Other Thoughts: The UI is a little clunky and hard to understand, but it's not terrible.

3 out of 5 eggsThere's better options, but in a pinch....

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: dual band AC router
Decent throughput when in close proximity.
Essentially got this item free in a bundle.

Cons: Range is much worse than my el-cheapo TP LINK Wireless N router

Other Thoughts: I'm not going to go on about all the features this model has, merely give you my impressions.

It's good enough for my main floor on a 1300 Sft home, but won't really reach into the garage which is <40 feet from the router.

No real bones to pick with this thing. It does have some nice options on it, but if you're in a big house, you might want to look elsewhere.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little router

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: I'm using this router exclusively as an access point, so I can't comment on its routing performance. In AP mode it's been rock solid, fast, and not required a single reboot. The range is pretty good and it can also function as a wireless bridge, which is a nice, unexpected bonus on a unit this cheap.

Cons: * No DHCP client in AP mode; must be configured with a static IP address.
* No way to specify a gateway to reach external NTP servers, and fails to query a local NTP server on the LAN.
* No way to manually set time, so the router thinks it's 1970.
* Non-detachable antennas.

Other Thoughts: Idles at ~3.5 watts.
