I had bought Buffalo products in the past and been satisfied. This one is terrible

John Morgan, Amazon
17 January 2016
  • Summary: I had high hopes for this router. I had bought Buffalo products in the past and been satisfied. This one is terrible. Tech support is worthless. The last time the firmware had been updated was in November of 2013. I just checked and finally, on December 27, 2015, the firmware has been updated.

Pleasantly surprised

Good midrange router

Tom Breakfield IV, Amazon
21 July 2014
  • Summary: To be honest, I was a little worried about this - not being one of the "name brand" routers. But I have a Buffalo external hard drive and it has been flawless so I gave it a try. Set up was remarkably simple and this was my biggest worry.

Good coverage

  • Summary: My husband set up this router (as he does all computer equipment in the home). It seemed easy. I will comment on the functionality of the product. We have a 2500 square foot home, and this router is centrally located.

Great router but be prepared to call support

Shellsthoughts, Amazon
21 July 2014
  • Summary: We love the strength of this router. No issues at all getting signal in any part of our old 2-story farmhouse. The one drawback: The installation was not easy as the folder states. My husband had to call the tech support for assistance(and they were there, even at 3am!).

Seems like a good router, but the 2.4Ghz wireless to WAN throughput tests really low

C. Lauer, Amazon
21 July 2014
  • Summary: I wanted to rate this higher, but its got a funny a quirk - I can't get a wireless-WAN throughput of >25mbps on 2.4Ghz. I tested this on three wireless-N devices and got the same result. Wireless-LAN throughput seems fine (I measured as high as 120mbps).

Above average router, but somewhat mispriced for its feature set

Indy Reviewer, Amazon
21 July 2014
  • Summary: The Buffalo AirStation AC 1200 is a decent enough router, but it's also slightly mispriced for its functionality. There's no real reason to spend $120 on this instead of spending an additional $25 to buy the faster, three-stream, top of the line . 3 stars.

Great speed, but not really noticeable difference from normal

Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 July 2014
  • Summary: The router does not joke around with high speed. I was able to run 2 MMO's, a streaming movie and stream music through the device at the same time. The advertisement states that it gives "priority" to media, though I wasn't able to notice any appreciable difference between this router and my other...
