Cons:

-Slows to a crawl when torrenting.
-Didn't notice prioritized gaming.

Other Thoughts:

It's visually a nice looking router. Black Matte Finish, square shape, and ~1" thickness. Includes 1 ethernet cord for connecting to your modem. Also has has 4 ethernet ports for wired connection to your computer or networking device. There is also a USB 2.0 plug for connecting a printer or hard drive for network access. The signal range was about 4 bars to my pc that is located upstairs. The signals so far seems to be reliable, but torrenting files seems to hang up the router, slowing it down. For gaming I didn't notice much of a difference in terms of prioritized gaming. For $90, it's too much money in my opinion for something that is not AC wireless networking. For a normal consumer that doesn't like tweaking settings and wants something to stream video/browse the internet/ and gaming it works well. Just nothing too special about the router, it would be nice for USB 3.0 and AC to make it future proof.
