5 out of 5 eggs One of the better AC dual band router for now 07/03/2014

This review is from: NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Router (R7000)

Pros:

Coming from DLink DIR-655 Rev1 with last me for 6 years and counting, it still work, but I needed a more solid and farther WiFi Router thru wall and it delivered.

Dual band 2.5GHz and 5GHz ( Better coming from DLink 655 single)
Little better range in N, haven't test AC, bc of leak of device yet (note AC is only in 5 GHz band with only WPA2-PSK) Future proofing my WiFi BAND choice too.
No drop WiFi signal
No Router reboot
NetGear GUI is easy and fast response
If you EVER work with a Home WiFi Router before this is no different
Free Android/iOS app for some quick setting
USB port option to add a USB3 hard drive or printer
Two screw hole to mount to wall
Dual Processor
Guest Network
Simultaneous Dual Band WiFi signal

Cons:

These are some small gripe, don't really bother me, but may for other

It black and no white version available to better match the wall
Router is is a big in size compare to my DLink at least double the size.
Antennae maybe too large( but is necessary)
Not cheap, but it the fastest for now
Wish had more Wire Network Port

Other Thoughts:

If you what to upgrade from a single band G and N band router and want the best N/AC this is for you.

Devices connected to my new router all 4 wires used for desktop PCs, switches, PS4, and Nas box. Wifi used with phones, Tablets, 4 IP Cams(different brands)

The ASUS RT-AC66U was my other choose. Local store availability is better with the Nighthawk. At the end of the day better price win me over compare to the Asus. Return the Nighthhwak to ($200) W mart and got the better price $160 (Newegg.com)
