5 out of 5 eggsSolid router

This review is from: D-Link DIR-850L Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: So far, I have had no problems with this router. It's ridiculously fast. Over 802.11AC I was able to pull down 62 Mbps from my HTC One in the next room. Very few instances of any slowdown (a big change from my previous Linksys) even with a PS4, desktop, several Macbooks, several phones, and 2 Chromecasts all connected and running at the same time.

Cons: Would have been nice to have a second USB input on the device to hook up a network drive in addition to our printer.

It's small, which overall isn't a real negative, but because of it's light weight and higher center of gravity, when I plug in LAN cables to the back, it tips the whole router over a bit.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great price for a small 802.11AC router. I would only recommend something "better" (ie more expensive) if this is being used for commercial or office use.

4 out of 5 eggsGood 5 GHz but shorter range than 2.4GHz

This review is from: D-Link DIR-850L Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: At 5GHz it has a stable super fast connection with the AC router.
Comes with extension cord so you can angle the adapter better. It seems to make a difference a bit.

Cons: 5 GHz radio does not go as far as 2.4 GHz radio...or at least through floors.

Other Thoughts: At long range, 2.4GHz is better so this would be a waste of money considering 5db 2.4 GHz adapters are much cheaper. This adapter is only good for short to medium range.

5 out of 5 eggsFast cheap reliable router

This review is from: D-Link DIR-850L Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: Connects all the time, I don't have to reboot it all the time like my last 3 D-Link routers. No annoying bright lights either.

Cons: I have no complaints yet.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate After Heavy Use

This review is from: D-Link DIR-850L Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: Gigabit Ethernet. Fast AC Wireless. Surprisingly reliable in a very demanding home environment. (see other thoughts)

Cons: Occasionally won't handshake properly with the modem after a reboot and you have to play around with it to get it to work. I can't seem to make wireless calls with my Galaxy s4 without the call dropping after a few seconds. This seems to be a firmware bug which hopefully DLink will address.

Other Thoughts: I have this thing running a very high demand home network. Two computers are using steam and YouTube all the time (teenagers). I also have numerous wireless devices; 3 laptops, 2 smartphones, 2 rokus, 2 ipods, and an iPad. I also have an HDHomerun prime that is streaming HD TV signal to two media center PCs (both are wired connections). These Media center PCs are going all the time, either with HD TV signal, or streaming from the Roku. The router has been up for several months without a single fault needing a router reboot. I think that pretty much speaks for itself in terms of reliability and throughput. After dealing with so many flakey routers from various manufacturers, I must say I am a bit surprised.

4 out of 5 eggsnot a bad router

This review is from: D-Link DIR-850L Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: Bought this as my older Linksys was dropping signals. Good speeds when sharing over network and playing games. Works with my Western Digital 2tb external using usb. Media sharing is simple and easy my WDLiveTv quickly and easily identifies my external on this router on both Wi/Fi and Ethernet. 5Ghz band works very well as well as the 2.4Ghz. No dropped signals and very good range! Updated to new firmware as soon as I got it and very pleased with the simplicity and ease to update that.

Cons: Simply horrid and ugly looking router config page. Navigation for users who do not have much knowledge could be an issue. DLink has used this interface for a while now and its one of the worst ive seen... Time for a update!

Other Thoughts: I give it s 4/5 simply because of the router configuration page. This router performs well and never has had any issues. The router is small about the size of a 16 ounce can just a little wider. Lots of features such as shareport which works well in a home network setting. Users can easily access shared content without any issues.

5 out of 5 eggsFastest Router Ever

This review is from: D-Link DIR-850L Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: This router is super easy to setup, the default security is good out of the box. I disabled WPS though. I put setup two of these and zero problems, no more lag with netflix.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Router

This review is from: D-Link DIR-850L Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: Fast
Easy to set up
Lots of features
Decent range and power

Cons: The D-Link cloud interface is not the greatest and has a bit of a learning curve.

Other Thoughts: I bought this because my old router did not have the range to cover my entire house (2200 sq feet w/basement and 2nd floor, plus lovely old plaster and lathe walls). It meet that need and more. The cloud feature is great and allows my roommates and I to share content and backup data. As I mentioned before the interface was not the best, it took me a little while to figure out the best way to set it up. Not it runs great and even with my moderate knowledge I have access to new feature I have never had from my old modem.

This review is from: D-Link DIR-850L Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: Easy to set up, strong signal in a 2000 sq. foot house, and best of all not a single dropped signal so far. It's smaller than the picture makes you think too.

Cons: Nothing so far

5 out of 5 eggsVery good!

This review is from: D-Link DIR-850L Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: Wireless range is excellent, getting max strength from basement to second floor of my house. So far no signal drops so hopefully this router will last me a long time.

Cons: Shape of the router is kinda funny but not a big issue.
