    "Not bad...No fuss...ONE IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have an Internet Phone like Vonage, you will need another ROUTER like Cisco, Apple's Airport, Netgear, etc. the 3 Pods are identical having one Ethernet input and one output, besides the power jack input....I can't recommend Google Wifi strongly enough - after years of struggling with slow wifi speeds and deadspots using a Verizon Fios Modem/Router combo, the Google 3 pack did the trick - speeds now range from roughly 40-80mb (depending on distance from the main router) throughout our house, the 3 routers sync together seamlessly, and the problematic and very tricky Fios router remains in service but with Wifi switched off."

    "My Fav...I enjoy...Speed over wifi on 2.4 Ghz channel is still what you would expect with older routers, but the 5.4 Ghz channel which is the channel that allows for AC wireless speeds tops out around 325Mbps on wifi on an IPhone, even through one wall....While it does not have the same range as some of the latest AC routers on the market, the ease of use and configuration of this router definitely makes it a worthwhile competitor and to answer a lot of the questions concerning this router, yes, this router is easily configurable and use no matter what platform you are using; OS X, Windows, etc."

    "Fast !...no lag...I work for the cable company and that has allowed me to see and compare different routers and by far this is one of the best routers for streaming and online gaming, another thing I really like is that you have the option to turn off the lights on the router....This worked great right out of the box-I gave it 5 stars however to use the extra 2 fastest "channels" of this router,you will have to look it up on the net, as the instructions are not that good You will get the regular "channel" "netgear89" right out of the box (by the way they say the password at unboxing is "admin" for user and the password is "password" This is the password for the router but not wifi."
