Summary: Works very well. Easy to setup. Has better range than others I have owned. It has directional characteristics which allows me to place the the router so it covers the area in my home that is the weakest.
Summary: While I was initially happy with this device, the wheels fell off the bus fast. I found that Outlook couldn't stay connected to Exchange on any of my computers while on it (wired or wireless), and my Android devices had severely delayed push notifications. After weeks (literally) of phone tag with TERRIBLE support agents, I managed to diagnose myself that torrent traffic was overloading it. The same torrents that a DIR-655L took like a champ would cause all of this.
Summary: Generally a solid router...the web interface could be a bit better/ easier to navigate. Have yet to have a dropped connection. Have multiple devices connected: roku for netflix/vudu, xbox, ps4, computer, phones, etc. So far has handled all of these connections.
Summary: The Dlink-DIR850L has been a pleasant surprise. I didn't have high expectations from Dlink, but this router has been a solid performer. It is not the best performer of the AC-1200 routers in terms of range and speed, but it has been rock solid and stable. I've stressed tested it with simultaneous 4 notebook PCs (2 Macbook pro, 2 windows notebook); 3 mobile phones (2 iphones); 1 iPad; Netlix streaming via TV.
Pros: easy to setup solid connections and stable router
Summary: I have a dozen internet connected devices so I thought it was time to upgrade my 3 yr old n-router. I'm pretty patient with hardware adjustment time but this router finally beat me. I was rebooting my 5 Grace internet radios 3-4 times a day! Put back my old D-Link DIR 825 n-router and solved my problem. Returning it tomorrow!
Pros: set-up was a breeze - so was updating the firmware sleek styling computers iphone ipad and smart tv's worked well
