5 Stars...Love it...The Apple series of products are more expensive, but they do appear to last about twice as long and they are easier to set up, have much better range than I got with the cheaper models and are well designed to extend networks (i.e., very easy to set up the Express to extend my Time Capsule WiFi network)....It works wonders for something so small when it is connected to an Ethernet cable but not so when trying to use it to extend a network wirelessly (which is supposed to be one of its functions.) Worth every penny but does not work with non- CAT 5 Ethernet cables I have found.Quickly connect your devices with this Apple® MC414LL/A AirPort Express base station that supports dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi for optimal performance with reduced interruptions. The rear USB port enables simple wireless printing.

Fast !...No lag!...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....We live in a very spread out home and have always struggled with poor signal quality in some "dead spots" around the house... but this router seriously lives up to its hype... we have full bars of signal all the way out to the street!!!The NETGEAR Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Router, with breakthrough Tri-Band WiFi delivers multiple bands for homes with many WiFi devices.

I like...Not Bad...NETGEAR WANTED ME TO TAKE IT BACK TO BEST BUY & EXCHANGE IT, "THAT'S ALL YOU HAVE TO DO" ALSO WANTED TO BLAME IT BEING DAMAGED ON SOMEONE AT BEST BUY "DROPPING IT"... AFTER A LIL CONVERSATION OF MY DISPLEASURE OF HIS ATTITUDE OF THE WHOLE BLAMING BEST BUY FOR DROPPING AND "ALL I HAVE TO DO"... WE CAME TO AN AGREEMENT WHERE THEY SHIPPED ME OUT A NEW ROUTER FROM NETGEAR, AND I SHIPPED THEM BACK THE DEFECTIVE ONE!...My base speed on Cox.net premier went from 15-20 megs down to 60+ megs down, and my upload speed went from 2 megs up to 12-15 megs up (important to a photographer sending stuff to zenfolio.com), so I am very pleased with this combo a Best Buy sales associate recommended to me.Choose this NETGEAR router and receive high level wireless security, the ability to share photos, music and more, and a way to keep track of your kids’ activity online.

I love...Great !...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....There was an automatic prompt when connecting that allowed me to get it synced with my service inThe NETGEAR N600 WiFi DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Router with N600 simultaneous dual band WiFi router and integrated DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem, provides 8x faster download speeds, up to 340 Mbps.

I win....Fast ....This thing is great, better range than Comcast's router and it has consistent WiFi, only issue I have is I can't figure out how to connect my PS4 to it via LAN, so its running on WiFi but I really wish I could use it with the LAN because it would be able to download much quicker but that is my only complaint....iPhone 6, iPad Mini, iPad Air 2, iMac 27, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and a Mac Mini seem to be getting very strong signals throughout the house and puts to shame the router that Time Warner Cable supplied me with and had the audacity to charge me $8.00 and that price is going up to $10.00 in 2 days.The Nighthawk AC1900 Cable Modem Router delivers WiFi speeds of up to 1.9Gbps.

My Fav...No lag....While it does not have the same range as some of the latest AC routers on the market, the ease of use and configuration of this router definitely makes it a worthwhile competitor and to answer a lot of the questions concerning this router, yes, this router is easily configurable and use no matter what platform you are using; OS X, Windows, etc....Sometimes, it will give me the shared name of a device like "Bob's iMac" and other times it will only give me the MAC number which is not exactly useless, it's a pain to go around to different devices to find out what the MAC number is.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.

Not bad...is good...I was unable to get the router to use the custom DNS entries for OpenDNS (a good content filtering service(that's free) The router allowed them to be entered but there appears to be a firmware ssue to them being used....The data speed for the router is good, however it can be frustrating since moving throughout the house often requires the device to reconnect with the router and we have had to periodically restart the router to improve connectivity.Linksys EA6350-4A AC1200+ Dual-Band Smart Router: This router offers wireless speeds of up to 867Mbps so it can handle demanding tasks like video streaming and online gaming.
