Excerpt: Following in the footsteps of enthusiast routers from the likes of ASUS, the Stealth Bomber-esque R7000 is networking-giant Netgear’s first attempt to court a more-demanding kind of router owner – that is, those who aren’t content for their router to just sit meekly in the corner and serve them the internet, but want blazing fast transfer speeds (wired and wireless) and a fully-stocked feature-set. In both areas, the R7000 doesn’t disappoint.
Conclusion: The R7000 Nighthawk router does indeed offer great capabilities for any household, with the signal strength on the Wi-Fi and the QoS advanced service being the best I have ever seen on any domestic based router, however with a price tag of around £150-£180 this is not a product that would be a worthy purchase for every household.
Conclusion: Excellent throughput and range at the 5GHz band, lots of features (including full VPN)?plus a cool name?all make the Nighthawk one of the best routers we've seen from Netgear in a while, despite a few annoyances.
Pros: Sharp design. Great throughput at 5GHz. Excellent range. Wonderful QoS. Full VPN capability.
Cons: Less-than-expected throughput at 2.4GHz band. Painful Bridge mode configuration. Slow to apply settings changes.

Summary: Netgear's Nighthawk router offers an impressive array of features and, most importantly, it serves up very quick 802.11ac speeds. It wasn't great in our long-range tests, though. Nevertheless, consider picking it up if you're in the process of implementing a new fast home network -- you'll get a lot out of it.
Pros: Stand-out design, Excellent short-range speed, Useful mobile features
Excerpt: Fazit: In der Gruppe der neuen und schnellen WLAN-ac-Router gehört der Netgear R7000 zu den Top-Modellen und lässt im Test einen Großteil der Konkurrenz hinter sich.

Außerdem ist der WLAN-ac-Router einsteigertauglich: Dank effektiver Assistenten sind Installation und Konfiguration unproblematisch.
Pros: Sehr gute Transferleistung, Starke Hardware, Gute Ausstattung
