    "Spot on...5 Star....Now the asus router is quite fantastic for a stand alone router, but when you have multiple 4k streams of Netflix happening at the same time as well as multiple smartphones/tablets, laptops/wireless desktops, and other various electronics connected all at once a single high powered router just can't cut it....I purchased the Google mesh WiFi home system a little over a month ago, and I purchased it to go along with my Ring Pro doorbell, because something they don't tell you about the Ring doorbell is that it needs a substantial amount of WiFi in order to work properly, so I had to purchase an additional single satellite and put it on the back side of the wall where my ring Pro doorbell is located in order to get a better wifi connection to the doorbell."

    "no lag...Fast !...So, imagine a router that has to get a signal to 5 iPads, 3 iPhones, 2 laptops, 1 desktop, a wifi camera, wifi printer, 2 wifi sound systems, 5 Directtv boxes, a Roku stick, Xbox One, 3 Nintendo 3DS's, Wii, smart bluray player, and various other asundery items such as Fitbits that are all off of Wifi typically half of those at a time....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."

    "I love...no lag....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....The Netgear N600 dual-band wireless-N router works great by combining a wireless router and a cable modem into one device which clears up desk space, especially with it standing on edge instead of lying flat on the desk."
