Planned Obsolescence - YEP!

Brooklyn Tyhurst, Amazon
9 February 2015
  • Summary: Bought this product in December 2012. It was a good router to begin with but as routers go, it appears this product has some built in obsolescence and the router now requires a lot of restarts and will frequently drop signal to devices. Be warned that it appears Buffalo is doing the same as some other router manufacturers and has some planned obsolescence in it's products. I wouldn't not buy this again.

Buffalo verses NETGEAR

Hawiko, Amazon
7 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought this router to replace my Netgear router. In judging the Buffalo by the price, compared to that of the Netgear, I expected it to work a lot better but unfortunately it does not even come close to the cheaper Netgear. Too bad I had sold the Netgear already..Live and learn.

Not as good as I had hoped

Tom, Amazon
11 June 2013
  • Summary: After my Netgear N900 router died ( another review to come later) I bought this Buffalo wireless router. I have a Buffalo NAS that I like a lot and this had pretty good reviews, so I bought it, but I don't think mine works all that well. Never had any Buffalo devices before my NAS I decided to give it a try. I have it located on the second floor of my house but I only get 2 bars on my laptop in the kitchen on the first floor.

Do not woth what it cost.

ROMERO R. Gilbert Gesel "sound and tech...", Amazon
15 April 2013
  • Summary: The original firmware is very basic, you can only setup a few settings, i only use it with N band (2.4 and 5Ghz) and iam not happy with the throughput (only 10MB/s on a Laptop with dual N network card), any cheaper N router does work like this. iam waiting for the partner Multimedia Bridge to use the AC band and justify spend 160$ on this. - The USB port only read HDD with XFS and FAT File system.

Keep Looking, Don't Waste Your Money

T. Cochran, Amazon
1 March 2013
  • Summary: I purchased the WZR-D1800H when it first came out and it has been a total dissapointment. If all your wireless equipment are in the same room this router will work for you. My 5 year old D link router has 4x the distance of this unit. I have a 2 story house and this router is in the upstairs corner bedroom. My computer is in the next room and can only get 50% or less on the 5ghz band and 60% signal strength on the 2.4 band.

fast router, poor support for peripherals

Karl E. Balsara, Amazon
14 January 2013
  • Summary: Bought this unit to replace a Linksys WRT54G. First unit I received was dead on arrival as diagnosed by Buffalo Technical support. A replacement unit sent by Amazon was easily set up and demonstrated significantly faster transfers through my network between my two computers. Wireless signal was improved across my admittedly small apartment.

Not what you expect

Amazon Customer, Amazon
1 December 2012
  • Summary: This router uses the very latest technology but is a disappointment. Its slow, has a relatively weak signal and is difficult to program. I'd keep looking.
