This review is from: NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Router (R7000)
Pros: I got this router to replace another router that was dying. The AC1900 connected to my DSL modem and it is doing a good job keeping my somewhat unstable DSL (rural area) as stable as possible.
The router has good coverage even on the 5GHz band, I can pick it up on my iPhone even on the other end of the house.
I have gigabit ethernet in my home, so its nice that the router supports that as well.
Cons: The biggest issue is that I have already had one ethernet port fail (#3). I can switch the cable from the dead port to any others and the link will immediately come up. No amounts of reboots helped, its just doa. This happened after about 3 months of use, so its pretty bad it already failed.
The file sharing options is not all its cracked up to be, yes it works, but don't count on it becoming your home NAS to share your videos and pictures. I gave it a try and ended up reverting back to sharing from my PC.
Other Thoughts: I like the signal strength, just don't like the already dead port.READ FULL REVIEW
