Best router period

Pros

- Super fast
- Very easy to customize
Cons
- EXTREMELY expensive
Summary
It's essentially a computer for your routing needs. It's a consumer router that delivers everything you need for the next few years. It's quite expensive but if you have a household of many people all streaming HD content at the same time, this helps.

Pros

Covert all my area and house levels.
Fast and high effeciency.
Many options.
Easy to configure

Cons
A little pricy.
Summary
After trying 3 others high-end routers, I finally found the one that does the job. Very complete interface, easy to configure, this router is the that suit my needs without any compromise.

excellent for summoning

Pros

Three networks! With this you could easily punt your bandwidth hogging pirates onto the second 5ghz network and prioritize your network traffic with ease.

Also it looks like a summoning altar. Or a sacrificial altar. This may be a con for you but I love it.

Also great for poking fun at netbook users. "My router has more guts than that thing!" I mean yeah it probably doesn't really but it's fun to tease.

You can also wear it like a crown but for $500 you can buy better hats elsewhere.
Cons
Probably shouldn't name it sacrificial altar if you have a deeply religious family.

It's also big, like make sure you have room to spare because this thing takes up the approximate space of a very small ITX case. I was very surprised at how large it was.

Expensive.
Summary
Jokes aside, performance is amazing, it hasn't gone down once, and I wholeheartedly recommend this router if you have way too much money.

Will you get your money's worth? Maybe, but probably not unless you have fiber or make heavy use of local file sharing. It's awesome though

Experience: 6 Days

Pros

1. Powerful router with many features like NAS
2. Good singal - 2.4g is good enough to cover all my backyard, but 5g is weaken in other room
3. Easy to set up, even more friendly in Win10
Cons
1. Pricy - be honest, with this much money, you could buy many good stuff rather than the router
2. Manual are not detailed enough, you will have to study all features for a while
Summary
Overall, RT-AC5300 is a turely all-round big house router。 It gaves all features you need for a home network. Maybe you need range extender for 5g singal if you are living a super big house.

Pros

triband wireless
-many antennas
-great range and speed
Cons
the price is sky high but you cannot change the channels on the bands
-looks like some space ship
Summary
great router but im not too sure if the price is matching

Pros

Speed
Strong signal
Looks cool and evil
Cons
Price
WiFi get disconnected sometimes
Tri-Band Smart Connect does not allow channel selection.
Tri-Band Smart Connect does not do load balance on the 5GHz very well
The GUI is not too organized.
NAS unstable.
iPhone ASUS router config app conflicts with Tri-Band Smart Connect.
Use as much power as my laptop.
It's huge in every way.
Summary
-Price too high
-Sometimes WiFi gets disconnected for no apparent reason, then reconnect again. Not sure if it is switching radios, but I don't think wifi on client should be disconnected even when switching radio, it should be too quick to observe.
-Tri-Band Smart Connect does not allow channel selection. The channel selection logic put one of the 5GHz to a very crowed channel (with my neighbors)
-Tri-Band Smart Connect does not do load balance on the 5GHz very well. Sometimes I end up with 5 devices on 5G-1 and one device on 5G-2. And the 5G-1 is in that crowed channel with my neighbors.
-When I tried to find wifi client device list/monitoring on GUI, it's not under the Wireless or LAN tab.
-NAS via my USB3.0 WD passport is usable. Sometimes my video streaming stops in the middle, or the video I am trying to watch is not accessible temporarily.
-iPhone ASUS router config app conflicts with Tri-Band Smart Connect. If I try to change wifi setting on the app, it unbinds the Tri-Band Smart Connect without a notification/alert.

Besides above issues, it is a good router. I use my Steamlink to play 1080p game on bedroom TV streamed from my PC with almost no latency.

I bought it because I have too many WiFi devices, need to use Steamlink, need a router with clear and strong signal to overpower my neighborhood's overcrowded WiFi storm. But I won't consider buying again until the above issues are fixed. I paid the premium price for trouble free and worry free premium experience.

To my friends who has too much money to burn, I will recommend it.

Experience: 1 Weeks

Pros

Fast (Major improvement in wireless speed)
2 Cores
USB 3.0
VPN built in
Traffic Monitoring
Bandwidth Monitoring
ect...
Cons
Costly
Came with a CAT5E Cable (Costing this much, it should come with a CAT6/CAT6A just for the speed of the Mhz)
The web history refresh button doesn't clear the web history like it suppose too (Guess that will be fixed in the next firmware update?)
Power Block the size of an Apple TV
Summary
Bought this on sale here at NCIX when it was bundled with an SSD drive. Wanted to replace my old ASUS RT-N66U. Wasn't sure if this was gonna be as good as it sounded but it is. My network speeds increased big time.

It came with a nice CAT5E cable and yes by rights that all you need as it only supports 1GB WAN and LAN ports. But being so high price. I think a CAT6 or CAT6A should of been the choice of cable just for the Mhz speed on the cable. Besides if your gonna over do it, you may as well over do it all.

The Power block is about the size of my Apple TV and it has the plug built into it. So I had a bit of trouble plugging it into my UPS.

There is a lot of great option on this Router and so far everyday I am in the GUI playing with it as there so much you can do. And The range is great. I get full bars everywhere and speeds triple what I use to get.

I going to use the SSD that I got with it during the bundle deal as a USB 3.0 drive for it for file sharing.

Pros

Works as advertised. very strong. 8 antennas
Cons
pricey, but I guess that what u pay for when u want the best.
Summary
Some don't like the looks of the router , But I Like it. its different. its big, its heavy, But its Strong. Fast,
I had an Asus RT-AC66U for a few years, and thought it was time to upgrade. was planning on getting the AC3200 from Asus but once I saw this one I was happy to change my opinion to this one.
No Dead zones in the house. I've done Speed test everywhere in the house. Works awesome.
