Pros: Nice looking, easy to set up, reasonably reliable(more on this in the cons)
Cons: When I found out that these could double as an access point as well I bought two of them to increase coverage in my house. It's not huge, the smart box is located in a closet where it's hard to get a good signal. So naturally I placed the access point upstairs since the router is downstairs. Let me tell, these fail completely as an access point. As a router this thing cut my speed in half, but as an access point it's just pathetic. It constantly cuts out for seemingly no reason. I've tried different channels, making sure not to interfere with neighbors or my own initial router, but no change. Customer service was an absolute joke, as I got little more than the "Have you tried resetting it?" response. They barely knew anything about the product they were "supporting". Needless to say, I will likely not be purchasing another networking device from WD.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Unreliable, bottlenecks my speed, has to be reset constantly.
Other Thoughts: This router is the worst thing I've ever purchased. It bottlenecks my speed, disconnects clients, and the 5ghz just flat out doesn't work after a while. This thing has to be power cycled at least once a day to be functional. Don't waste your time or money on this piece of junk.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Dual band.
Cons: This thing cannot keep the network up and running. Just as others have said, my network constantly drops and the router needs to be restarted at least once a day. I got a replacement from asus with the exact same problems. They can't seem to figure out why, but I'm sure it's because they manufactured a piece of junk. Because this I will never buy another asus router; that's how bad this thing is.
Other Thoughts: Just don't buy this. Save yourself some hassle and look elsewhere.READ FULL REVIEW
