Cons: Right out of the box with default settings could not get to admin webpage directly connected to lan but could ping router... Could not get chromecast to work on this router either. Tried flashing dd-wrt and it was successful but had the same problems.
I suppose the hardware itself is fine, it basically works

Summary: Disclaimer: I'm a huge Buffalo fan. I'm a huge dd-wrt fan. If I hadn't used any of Buffalo's routers previously, this would be a 4 out of 5 (for example, compared to other available routers in its class.) The problem is, I have. I've come to expect a certain level of excellence.
Summary: I like equipment that just does what it is supposed to do without problems, and this router sure fits the bill. I was able to configure the front switch to allow for me to turn off the wireless when I am not using it which is a good security practice.
Pros: I just wanted to provide some feedback on this router as I have had it for a year now and am still very satisfied with it. I have only had to reboot it a few times and most all of them were related to my DSL provider. I have since switch over to high speed cable and it has been rock solid and was...
Cons: None, has been very reliable with a consistently strong signal on both bands.
Summary: I have the previous version of this router (WZR-600DHP) and I highly recommend heeding my and others' advice and avoid this line from Buffalo. Functionally, the router worked great for about 6 months. It's highly configurable and fast.
Works but lack of support of new firmware is a deal breaker.

Summary: I was fan of Buffalo DD-WRT routers because their capabilities. What frustrated me was when huge bugs like Heartbleed impacted such devices. The lack of new versions of DD-WRT on Buffalo website was one of the deal breakers for me.
however I won't really recommend these for purchase for a different reason

Summary: I will give this 3 stars since I have a couple in the field and have no issues reported, however I won't really recommend these for purchase for a different reason. As it comes in the box, you will have no issues on the stock firmware and acceptable performance with other routers in this price...
Summary: After using this router for about a year, I recommend everyone stay away from it. Wired LAN works just fine, but the wireless will consistently drop clients during active usage (i.e. online gaming or watching YouTube). The range is also HORRIBLE.
Beware poor support, problems using USB / NAS function.

Summary: As a router it is so-so. First issue, billed as "high power" but no better than any other router so still needed a range extender to reach other end of small wood frame home. Big problem is I could not get the NAS to function.
