    "Excellent IoT Security Option...First things first, setup was easy...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)...I know that what matters most (which I'll get to in a second) is how it operates, but having just moved into a new place with all new furniture I was happy to see that the Sense module can sit on the shelf and not be an eyesore"

    "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...From a wireless perspective, everything went flawlessly, all wireless devices automatically connecting to the router at their optimum connection speeds ( i.e. - AC capable devices at 5 ghz, legacy devices at 2.4 ghz) however, I did run into a minor hick-up when trying to establish a LAN connection to my Vonage device using DHCP"

    "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"

    "Does a great job...great for a home...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...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"
