    "I like...not bad...Nice compact router...Unless you are in the same unusual situation that I'm in with the house literally causing range and connectivity issues, this seems to be a quality router and the specs were better than a router advertised at nearly double the price which had won an award for 2012 router of the year from some PC Magazine."

    "I love...Great ....Compact and owner full....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."
