Summary: The D-Link DIR-827 is a very good true dual-band router that needs a firmware upgrade so it can live up to its potential.
Pros: The D-Link Amplifi HD Media Router 2000 DIR-827 is a true dual-band router that offers USB 3.0 and an HD Fuel feature that automatically prioritizes Internet traffic for HD media streaming, VoIP applications, and gaming. The router also comes with a good set of other features that are available with other D-Link routers, such as SharePort Plus, guest networking, and OpenDNS parental controls.
Cons: The D-Link DIR-827's firmware is a little buggy. The router doesn't support the 450Mbps Wi-Fi standard, and its performance on the 2.4GHz band could use some improvement.
