Summary: When it works it works great, but don't count on it being consistent. Tolerated it for about 9 months, will be calling in under warranty, but from what I see from other reviews it is par for the course. Loses connection and you either wait or have to reset it. Have the latest firmware, doesn't help.
Don't buy even if cheap! Unstable even after firmware upgrade.

Summary: OK, I'll admit it, I bought this router because it was cheap. I found it for about half price as an Amazon Warehouse Deal. I only read the first few reviews and certainly didn't do enough research since the problems I ultimately experienced were shared by many others.
Summary: I'm really disappointed with this router. Is really easy to setup but 5 minutes later it began to shut down every 15 minutes. Searching throught the web the only help you got is to turn off all the add-ons to make the router configuration stable.
Summary: As wireless Access point i can't complain yet. Signals is strong and everything works pretty fast. I didn't check max throughput though... Where it crashes and burns is in it's DLNA (uPnP) media streaming advertised capabilities.
Summary: I really really wanted this to work. The USB plug on my WNDR3700 stopped working after a year and a half, which I used as to stream to devices via Samba. This router and the similar DIR-857 were the only ones I could find that supported USB3.0, so I gave it a shot.
Worst D-Link router I've owned (and this is number 6).

Summary: UPDATE: Do NOT buy this model. Or check the D-Link Support Forums to see issues others are having first. DIR-827 purchased on 12/11/2011 and I have to RMA it on 6/6/2012. For the past two months the 2.4GHz radio just stops working.
