    "Love it...No lags...4 MIMO, eight flexible antennas, eight gigabit wired ports, USB 2 & 3.0 ports, tri-band radios (one 2.4GHz and dual 5GHz) with a combined 5333 bandwidth and intelligent automatic balancing between the two 5GHz bands....So far 3 days into it, i'm impressed, 5g is stronger than on the previous Linksys Router, I have yet to drop a connection, AND the UI is a lot better than the WRT32X or the wireless N router ( which looks like it has come out of the 80's ) This router is set up in my laundry room and has several walls for the 5ghz signal to pass through but so far it's doing the job and doing it pretty well."

    "I love...It's ok...The 5 Ghz reaches upstairs no problem....I love that it takes up very little space, but due to not having external antennas, it goes out a lot if being used for wifi access for smartphones, but is fine with being used for laptops and computers if you don't mind a few delays and even though it's a dual- band wireless-n router with built in cable modem, it's difficult to get the secondary band to function and wouldn't recommend it for large homes but it's rather more suitable for apts."
