Summary: The Linksys E3000 is the first advanced router that's also easy to use for novices. It provides great wireless performance and has a good set of useful networking features. Its mediocre NAS performance and limited guest networking feature make it significantly less than perfect, however.
Pros: The Linksys High Performance Wireless-N Router E3000 delivers most of what you'd expect from a high-end router, including true dual-band, Gigabit Ethernet, fast throughput, a long range, NAS functionality, a nice set of networking features, and a good Web interface. It also has an aesthetically pleasing compact design and an intuitive software application to help home users set up and manage a home wireless network with ease.
Cons: The Linksys E3000's built-in network storage function lacks speed, and its Guest networking feature is limited. It doesn't support USB printers, and its Media Server doesn't work well with large video files. The included desktop application can't be used with the router's Web interface.

Cisco Linksys E3000 High Performance Wireless-N Router
15 October 2010
Conclusion: If you're looking for a high-end consumer or small-business router, Cisco's E3000 is a great choice. But if you are looking for a top-of-the line NAS, the E3000's is average at best. The E3000 tries to be both things, and its NAS abilities drag it down to just shy of greatness.
Pros: Router set up takes just minutes. Very fast throughput. Optimized for Wi-Fi performance
Cons: NAS capabilities are average. No print-server capabilities. Storage management setup awkward to navigate.
Excerpt: As we mentioned earlier, the Linksys E3000 is actually a rebadged WRT610N. We’re taking a second look at it now because it remains Cisco’s best consumer router; as such, we owe it to our readers to compare it to the best of what the rest of the industry has to offer. We updated the router with the latest firmware for this review and downloaded fresh drivers for the Linksys AE1000 dual-band USB client adapter, so we were quite surprised to see the router perform more...
Pros: A brain-dead zombie could connect a wireless client using Cisco Connect.
Cons: Crap benchmark performance; NAS feature doesn't support NTFS drives; can't share a USB printer.
Linksys E3000 review: An 802.11n router with simultaneous dual-band operation and Gigabit Ethernet

Summary: The Linksys E3000 is a good quality router that can simultaneously run 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless networks. It performed well in our tests and we found it to be reliable throughout our test period. It has good features and it's easy to set up.
Pros: Simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi, Good speed and reliability in our tests, Easy to set up
Cons: USB storage port is of limited usefulness, LEDs are too bright
Excerpt: Product: Linksys E3000 Supplier: Cisco Home MSRP: $179.99 Find Lowest Price @ PriceGrabber Date: October 9, 2010 The rebranding of Cisco’s consumer line to Cisco Home introduced a clear distinction in their models between what would consider power user models versus average consumer models. Their E Series models fall into the former category.
Conclusion: Voor de prijs die je voor deze router betaald zijn er betere alternatieven op de markt, zoals bijvoorbeeld de eerder gereviewde Sitecom Gaming Router 2. Voor een N-router valt de snelheid van deze router ons behoorlijk tegen, ook de stabiliteit van de draadloze verbinding laat te wensen over, de prestaties zijn ontzettend onstabiel.
Pros: Mooi design;, duidelijke control panel;, makkelijk in te stellen;
Cons: geen externe antennes;, slechte prestaties;, draadloos is onstabiel;
