NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Router (R7000)
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Beware the latest firmware 04/07/2015

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

Pros: Fast
Simple UI
Enough features to make you happy

Cons: Latest firmware is buggy

Other Thoughts: When I first got this router I updated my firmware right away, configured it.... then started to experience very weird performance issues. After doing some research, I saw that some people got around these slowdowns by downgrading the firmware. So, that's what I did. I went from the latest down to and my router started to work flawlessly, consistently giving me the max speed of my internet connection at (125MBPs).

2 out of 5 eggs Big Dissapointment 04/06/2015

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC87R Wireless-AC2400 Dual-band Gigabit Router

Pros: Nice UI
A lot of features

Cons: Poor and inconsistent performance
Slow reboot / config change times

Other Thoughts: I had high expectations for this router. I was disappointed. The connection speeds of my unit are very flakey. I am running the latest firmware, and had multiple exchanges with customer support. I tried all different settings for QoS and various other tweaks to see if anything made an impact. Nope. I would very frequently see flakey speeds and pings in the range of 1-6MBPs while my connections supports 120MBPs - and is smooth as butter when I connect directly to my cable modem and not through the router.

Trying to play games or using an SSH terminal through the router is a nightmare with constant slowdowns and ping surges all the way up to 2000MS.

Very disappointed. Requested an RMA today.

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Decent form-factor, reasonable price point for the performance/components - at $629 it's a pretty solid deal.

Cons: First unit was defective (N key worked about half the time). Had to exchange as an RMA.

Way too much bloatware.

I don't like how the keyboard lighting is set up. Too much bleed-through between the keys makes for a very funky looking keyboard.

The touch pad is activated when I'm just typing sometimes, pretty annoying. It also doesn't work in multi-touch scenarios, so sometimes if I have one finger or a part of my palm on the pad and try to use my other finger to move the pointer, it doesn't work.

Did I mention the massive amount of bloatware?

It also doesn't come with a windows install disc which is pretty annoying.

Other Thoughts: Frankly, I wish I'd gone with a different laptop.
