Summary: First off, this IS a WNDR3700 with updates. It costs about $10-$20 less though, so it seems clear which one to buy! I am going to lead off here with what you won't like: The firmware - It is basic. It looks pretty much like what Netgear had 5 or 8 years ago. If you want to do something fancy you are going to need some other firmware like DD-WRT. It is not clear to me right now if the various open source packages are ready for prime time, so YMMV.
Freaking amazing! Wish it were a little cheaper, but worth the money!

Summary: This is an absolutely amazing router! I have had two now, one at my parent's house and the other now at my own, and in two years of use neither of them have ONCE given me a problem. Best router I have ever had in my life and the only thing I think I would change about it is the price, and that I wish it had external antennas so that it would be simple to stick stronger antennas on the back, you know, in case you wanted this thing to reach all of your front and back yard...
best router i've had and i've been through 4 in last 10 yrs

Summary: Great router with all the features I wanted. Some versions of firmware have a "DNS server not responding" bug so make sure u update to the version firmware that fixes this. Then router is rock solid.
