5.0 out of 5 stars Best router - range, reliability, throughput, 6 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Asus RT-AC66U AC1750 Black Diamond Dual-Band WLAN Router, 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Gigabit LAN/WAN, 2x USB, Print FTP UPnP VPN Server, IPv6, 8x SSID (Personal Computers)
I bought this router because it had excellent amazon and industry reviews. I had a 1st generation time capsule that just wasn't cutting it anymore - the range wasn't good enough, and the throughput (basically, speed) was insufficient anywhere other than one or two rooms away from where the router was located.

This asus router performed very well, but I am a big apple fan. Then, the new 2013 time capsule was released by apple. I bought the new time capsule, and placed it right next to the asus router. I used both for a couple of days, ran a number of speed tests/downloads form various locations in my house. This asus router outperformed the time capsule in every way (by a good 20% margin). I got better range, better throughput, better everything. I returned the time capsule, and now this is my router. Brilliant bit of kit.

Also, Im not a networking specialist, but it was easily able to set up a VPN server off. Its included in this router's software/hardware, and enables you to access your NAS/UK geo-locked websites and media very easily from anywhere in the world.

I normally buy only Apple products, but this router has convinced me that paying more isn't always best.
