Summary: I purchased this device in Feb 14 and I am enjoying it. Being that I work in the IT field, it fulfills all of my demands for gaming, storage, DLNA, Wifi Blurays, linux servers, Ipads, Iphones and Tablets. I sit different devices on seperate bands and enjoy the same experience of speed and Qos.
Summary: I replaced a 4 year old super dependable router with this, and have not looked back at all. Configured via web in less than 10 minutes, dropped in a drive I previously prepared and took down a couple of file servers that were no longer necessary. I am pleased to say the least.
Pros: Internal drive and SD memory card support, consistent signal, superior range/coverage, simple setup, great performer overall!
Summary: If it comes DOA, upgrade the firmware! I returned my first, and got a second. I spent an hour and forty one minutes on a tech call with Netgear and eventually got it fixed. Nightmare, BUT the (India based) tech rep knew his stuff and we got it running well.
Summary: I am happy that someone saw this and decided to follow up and replace it rather than leave me with a faulty unit. SO I woudl have to say the bad support is not a culture that permeates the company, It appears to be just poor support at the lower level of customer support.
Pros: This router was very easy to setup. IT is really a great Router. I reviewed it earlier and gave it a zero star because of their support. I have several Netgear Products and this one appear to be head and shoulders above it's competitors and at a great price. MY problem with this router is it is p...
Cons: The cons is only that the 1st and 2nd level support is to bad to consider support. However since i wrote my first review I received a call from the support team and they are going to replace the router.
Summary: So far, I'm very impressed and for the performance and price of this router, I don't see how you can go wrong. It looks to be an amazing find.
Pros: This router replaces an Asus rt-n16 that will be appearing on an online auction site shortly. There really is no comparison as far as connectivity and speed. On every level the WNDR4700 is far superior. The NAS function gives me 35MB/90MB transfer speeds while the rt-n16 could barely muster 8MB/8...
Cons: Fan could be quieter. Firmware lags a bit, but not enough to worry about. Wouldn't mind seeing an improvement here though.
LOVE! Perfect for sharing multimedia on any device!

Summary: LOVE all around! First, Amazon rocks! The first one I ordered had issues that Netgear couldn't fix and Amazon replaced it free with no questions and had it to me the next day. LOVE Amazon for this!! Also, Netgear support was fantastic and with me every step of the way, so I love them too!!
Summary: Easy install. I used a HGST Deskstar NAS 3.5-Inch 3TB drive. Copy times are incredibly quick! Do a little home work prior to installation and make sure to update the firmware for drives over 2 TB. So far none of the overheating as posted on some forums.
