    "Highly recommend....Stylish and Functional...While I'm not a big fan of subscription-based services, this comes with the first 12 months free and then it's less than $10/month, which isn't much when it's covering everything in my home (currently a Samsung SmartTV and Blu-ray player, Xbox, Google Home Mini, Chromecast, Pixel, Pixel 2, two iPhones, and three laptops-a MacBook, a ThinkPad, and a Surface Book)....The Sense router seems to be a great solution for this."

    "nice ....it's ok...For connectivity on the router itself, it marks off the important checkboxes - USB 3 connection for a hard drive or flash drive, USB 2 for a printer or another flash or hard drive that doesn't need to transfer data as fast, a gigabit ethernet connection to whatever your internet connection is brought into your home with, and a 4 port gigabit ethernet switch....This router is also capable of creating a special isolated "guest" network which is not going to be encrypted, your guests will be presented with a web page to enter "guest" password (kinda like at the hotels, airports, also known as a "captive" mode)."

    "I love...Not bad...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."

    "IT'S OK...not bad...We use a couple ps4s and pcs with wired connections and the wifi is mostly used for phones and other small devices so it doesn't have a lot to do, but I've only ever had to reset it once after a storm and it came right back up without a hitch....With the recent rollback of net neutrality I bought this to run as a dedicated VPN router, big mistake... The router overall performs very will without lag and maintained a very fast overall in network speed, however the PTPP protocol needs to reestablish itself about every 10-15min causing a complete loss of internet usage in the time frame."

    "Worth it...Very good...Coverage is exceptional and best of all, Asus has a much better software than all of the competition combined... A nice software feature is the ability of the Asus to combine all the 3 bands (2.4Ghz, 5.0Ghz A and 5.0Ghz B) all in one, giving users only 1 Wifi to connect to, and the Asus router's hardware/software does a perfect job in placing the connected devices on the perfect band, depending on type and distance of any given device....Currently using a RT-AC87R that has been an excellent router but wanted to upgrade to a newer more powerful router due to extra family now staying in the house."
