    "Love it...No lags...The antennas are sexy....So far 3 days into it, i'm impressed, 5g is stronger than on the previous Linksys Router, I have yet to drop a connection, AND the UI is a lot better than the WRT32X or the wireless N router ( which looks like it has come out of the 80's ) This router is set up in my laundry room and has several walls for the 5ghz signal to pass through but so far it's doing the job and doing it pretty well."

    "Wow -...No lag!...The antennas are all fully adjustable (tilt, twist)....Only tried the router out for a day then had to return, nothing about the router was wrong, I really liked all the aspects of the router but running Verizon in bridge mode I could not watch tv, so until Verizon steps up in the gaming world or another fiber company shows up I'm stuck with a non gaming router"

    "I like...4 Stars...The internal antenna makes the router compact....The reason I chose this particular router was because of the dual band and the ability to connect an external storage device, I've read reviews saying the transfer speed was slow from an external drive, but I get excellent transfer speeds from the drive, the usb is usb 3.0 so if you use a usb 3.0 external drive it will take full advantage of the increased transfer rate, also some reviews say that it is picky about external drives, basically if your drive requires software to use it won't work, b"

    "4 star...Fast !...Excellent router as I access the computer that is hooked to it thru software from 1200 miles away and also with MAJOR issues of getting service knocked out from ISP and with this router I go from actual kick offline to nano blips so it has been a life saver while waiting on ISP to find out why service so unreliable...Since buying this router I have moved and now have it hooked up to a Motorola cable modem - I have Comcast and instead of paying them a $10 monthly rental fee for their modem/router it made more sense to just buy a modem and hook this router up to it for my wifi."

    "nice ....it's ok...My initial impression of this product was off because I was still having issues with streaming, but once I read the FAQ and set my stream devices to use 5 GHz all those problems went away, and it is so powerful that I can actually use steam link over wi-fi (computer itself is wired), which was a pretty big plus I did not expect....All my family is able to connect to the wireless Internet, and the connection is fast and reliable, I don't know how I was able to use live without it, now that I have linksys I know I was missing out, my son is happy playing his video games, it is faster he said, also my wife and daughter said that Internet is been faster."

    "No lag...Top Notch...Now to the features, love the DumasOS, the Geo-Filter I see can make a difference in gaming, but in my use I do not see a benefit, I mainly play Gears of war 4 on Xbox One which is on a server, It does a good job connecting to a close server but unfortunately we cannot control who connects to the server, so I'm stuck playing with players with high pings....I recently upgraded to Centurylinks 1 gig fiber internet and did not want to rent their router for 10 bucks a month and decided to purchase this, I am not only getting faster wifi speeds with this router but I also get prioritization with my gaming devices as the router will send them more bandwidth."

I didn't want to have to be an IT expert to get it operating.The router really works well, and although I still might need an extender to reach those nether-regions of the house, this was a good purchase and worthwhile upgrade from my "old school" unit....I am not an expert by any means, as it took me quite a while to figure out how to log the router in and bring it online, but it has worked flawlessly and allows me to use more devices and receive my wifi from much longer distances at faster speeds."
