The media bridge does exactly what it's supposed to and has exceeded my expectations in terms of performance. In order to benefit from 802.11AC ( i.e gigabit WiFi) you'll need to pair it with Buffalo's WZR-D1800H.

The stock Buffalo firmware does what it is supposed to do for the average home user, however if you are used to a more sophisticated or custom router firmware, it will leaving you wanting or satisfied, depending on your requirements, as the standard firmware is pretty basic in functionality.

For those seeking advanced feature sets and configuration options, as with most Buffalo routers, it is indeed possible to update to DD-WRT if you search the web... as a point of reference the D1300 is in fact a D1800H without the WAN and USB ports. I have updated both my D1800H and D1300 to DD-WRT and achieving ~1200M, the Buffalo's have been running without issue for the last 3+ months.

Throughput rate over 802.11ac is just fabulous, I have mine spaced about 10 meters apart and through a floor and a fairly decent wall, no hassle at all, would recommend. Configured it, moved it to its new home and haven't have to touch it since, rock solid.

If you want the fastest current wireless bridge - for a cheap price - this is probably the cheapest way to do it - unless you're lucky to get an 'AC router at a clearance or private sale. After more than 1 year after launch, I was hoping for cheaper prices - in fact the prices might have been cheaper may months ago.

Initial configuration is a pain as you need to install an "Ethernet bridge driver" for your PC to find and configure the bridge, as unlike a router it does not run DHCP by default (to assign an address to your PC) nor does it seem to respond on its default IP address; so you need to link it to your router, set it to get an address for itself from router and then finally administer it via its web-interface.

Buffalo's firmware is not as polished as Netgear / Asus and even after more than 1 year and a few updates nothing much has changed. I originally returned the router version (D1700) due to this and switched to a Netgear router that is much better. While DD-WRT is available and pretty stable, there are still issues with 5GHz radio and sporadic development.

In use, the speed is good, 20-30MB transfer with link speed around 866Mbps even though both it and the router are 1300 devices; unless in the same room you are unlikely to link at that speed. As more people get 5GHz and AC routers the channel congestion will only make things worse.

For me, this works better than dLAN (aka Ethernet via power line) - both 200 and 500 dLAN did not go higher than 6-8MB/s, so this gives me ~2x better speeds. dLAN prices have hit rock-bottom and might be freer from interference than WiFi so it depends on the house - but at least for me the wifi bridge is faster.

So is it worth it? If you can afford it, get a better router to use in bridge mode like Asus or Netgear - perhaps in a sale. If you want rock-bottom price that mostly works then this won't break the bank.
