Pros Very impressive real-world speeds on 5GHz band
Cons No Netgear-branded 802.11n adapter that supports 450Mbps on 5GHz, or even on 2.4GHz with their newer N900.
Summary Though the maximum theoretical throughput is rated at 300Mbps on 2.4 band, and 450Mbps on the 5GHz band, I am getting 150Mbps on the 5 band... which is actually VERY impressive. I am approximately 10' from the N750 router while using a non-Netgear branded USB adapter (Asus USB-N53 dual-band 300) and I was able to file-copy a large 8GB movie from a dedicated NAS to my desktop in 7 minutes y 18.75MB/s (150Mbit/s) on the 5GHz band with Frames Bursting ON. In comparison, my D-Link DIR-655 was able to reach only 5MB/s (40Mbit/s) with an internal D-Link DWA-552 Xtreme PCI Wireless N adapter at the same distance with various different channels. As an FYI, I can get close to 350Mbps using Gigabit wired LAN from my NAS.
Pros Reliable Easy to setup and install Dual band > Single Decent range Sleek design
Summary I purchased the wndr4000 to replace my broken engenius eub9855g, needless to say I'm very impressed thus far. I can easily stream 1080p movies through windows media center on the xbox 360 without any lag issues. Gaming has become much more enjoyable after the purchase as well.
Overall I'm extremely satisfied as its much more reliable than my previous router. Highly recommended!
Pros Easy to setup, solid working router, USB ready share, simultaneous dual band radio.
Summary I am very impressed with how stable this router is. I haven't had it for too long but it was absolutely easy to setup (manual setup) i am sure it would have been even easier to setup if i had used the accompanying cd. The firmware that it ship with is the best firmware for it at the moment though there is a new firmware. I upgraded from a Dgl 4500 that i had nothing but problems with.
