Pros:

This unit has very simple instructions for installing, including a CD that will (I assume, since I immediately threw it away) configure your computer for you automatically, which is probably a boon for less experienced users. I immediately installed OpenWRT (it is only supported by the Kamikaze release), which worked great once I did "ipkg install kmod-brcm-wl-mimo" for the wireless driver. I haven't tested N speeds. DD-WRT works great too.

Cons:

The antennas are integrated, which means no replacing them without opening up the case and grabbing a soldering iron. The support in OpenWRT for this router is very new, so people looking for a good OpenWRT box should be aware that it will require some tinkering to get working. I experienced some instability when using WPA, but unencrypted and WEP worked fine.

Other Thoughts:

This is a good price for an N-capable router that runs OpenWRT, assuming you don't mind getting your hands dirty with the configuration. There is supposedly better support in trunk, so if you're up to compiling a version yourself, you might have a better experience.

DD-WRT works great out of the box.
