good job...No lag....Apple makes solid hardware...I first talked to a geek Squad rep and he was helpful somewhat, but a Apple Rep came down the Router Isle and overheard us talking and took over the conversation in a nice way and showed me the Airport Extreme and explained why it is so awesome.
The intelligent, easy-to-use AirPort Extreme Base Station with simultaneous dual-band support is the perfect wireless access point for home, school or office. It offers next-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology and delivers high-performance wireless access for Mac computers, PCs and Wi-Fi devices such as iPhone®, iPad®, iPod® touch and Apple TV.
Love it!...Amazing !...its real benefit would be in internal hardware, handling many clients consuming lots of data....The WRT3200 ACM router is extremely fast as well as reliable, I currently have 32 devices connected to this router as well as 4 NAS Servers for streaming movies, and 4 Nest Security camera running in HD, this router has handled everything with no issues what so ever, the WRT3200 ACM is an upgrade from the WRT1900 ACS, I was hestitant to spend the money on the 3200 since the 1900 ACS was still relatively new, but have to admit, the upgrade was worth it.

Very nice....Not bad though....Overall a good piece of hardware....As a former RPG type gamer, I can totally appreciate the practical benefit this type of technology offers - Reduced Lag (or spikes), Lower Ping/Latency (for faster and more consistent reaction time), but most importantly, Prioritized Gaming (over other network traffic).

Killer Prioritization Engine Reduces Peak Ping by 77% on Killer-enabled PC’s. Killer reduces peak ping by 77% calculated from the reduction of peak ping rate from 74 milliseconds (ms) to 17 ms when using the Killer Prioritization Engine on the WRT32x and a Killer-enabled PC using 10 megabits per second (Mbps) down/2Mbps up internet connection that has multiple devices consuming the 10Mbps connection.

Not bad....very good...This dual band smart router has been easy to use and consistently a strong piece of hardware....Parental controls: - I was excited to test the advertised parental controls; but found them quite lacking: - It allows time of day settings per device (MAC Address) which is good; within a weekly schedule; in a nice chart interface to select the time ranges.

Great buy...Love it....Woaw what a beautiful piece of hardware....There were many features I did not get to try - VPN access, wireless printing, and accessing USB storage remotely - however, I have no doubt based on the ease of setting up and using other features of this router, that these would work well and be easy to set up....Only negatives are its size, USB ports mounted on the side, and the cost (fortunately bought it on Black Friday at a discount).
No matter where you are, bedroom to backyard, you’ll experience a stronger, faster connection with this tri-band NETGEAR router. Get rid of lag, freezing, and buffering while you game, stream and more on multiple devices.
Best yet...Love it....The Netgear wasted a lot of my time...I'm pretty good with installing new electronics or computer software and hardware so this was beyond aggravating for me to have something as simple as installing a router become this difficult....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.
Automatically connect every device in your home at the same time. This tri-band router offers accelerated Wi-Fi, so you can avoid breaks in streaming, lag while gaming, and interruptions while working, even when everyone's online at once.
Good BUY...2nd best...a great little piece of hardware...I don't seem to see any speed gain (because speed really depends on the internet plan you subscribe to) but yes, it did extend my wi-fi range so now I can sit in my backyard and browse happy...like I am not in my mom's house on a dial-up connection anymore.

no lag....not bad...It's great because it has both modem and router in one box so you have less hardware and is simple to have one box rather than 2 like a modem and a router....What I have enjoyed about the new router: (1) gigabit speed on my home network, (2) the guest network capabilities on both 2.4 and 5.0 Ghz, (3) the ability to connect wirelessly on a 2.4 Ghz and 5.0 Ghz simultaneously.
