Pros: Easy to setup, great for gaming, fast speeds

Cons: Wish antennas were longer, expensive for average user

Overall Review: I have owned this router since Jan 2016 and my 1st one quit working in June and I called customer service and they took care of me quickly with no problem. My computer is at the opposite end of a 2500 sq. ft house and with my previous wireless adapter an internal ac1900 adapter my connection speed was 866 Mbps and now I upgraded to the Asus ac88 with the external antenna base which takes advantage of the 4x4 Mimo and my connection speed now has increased to an average between 1.3 to 1.5 Gbps which is better than my laptop connected to it hard wired. It does make a difference what type of wireless adapter that you use especially if your using a USB adapter with built-in antenna. I would recommend this router to anyone especially for gaming and it also works great for game stream from my Pc to my shield tv plus all the phones, tablets and smart tvs don't slow it down. If your an average internet user then a ac68u or ac3100 are good less expensive options which I previously owned and had great service from.
