Pros: I paid $80 from Newegg. You really cannot do much better than this for the money, even at full price. Firmware seems nice. Big router, Big antennas. To the previous poster--Big antennas mean more gain (kind of like having more power). External antennas mean you can position them depending on your circumstances. Every room and apartment/house is different.
Cons: My only gripe is that the firmware has not been updated in 8 months. On these new routers with AC technology, the firmware should be updated often. For example Asus update theirs every month. Not because the firmware is buggy, but because they constantly improve it.
Summary: Setting the router up and using the printer sharing was dead easy. I immediately went to the farthest part of my house where reception was at its worst(the reason I purchased this) and on the 5GHz channel I achieved 104.82mb/s. my connection is rated 100mb/s max! The 2.4GHz channel provided a crisper signal but capped at 43.39mb/s. So in it's primary role it was extremely fast.
Pros: Quick configuration, up and running within 5 minutes, overall ease of configuration via the integrated admin interface
Cons: Web admin interface a bit quirky, needs some cleanup work as far a proper scaling within the existing browser window size, but that's a minor issue. Would like DHCP reservations to contain server names in addition to the data already present. QOS not complete, looking forward to a future release that adds true QOS configuration/support.
Summary: One thing i hate about NCIX is they play with Price each day , PRICES should STAY same Until the end 24/12/2013 yesterday 89.99$ now 94.99$ tomorrow 99.99$ ? EDIT : ok finally they droped price to 79.99$ Thank you NCIX :) This review was modfied by poster @ 01-02-14 08:22 PM
