Pros
* Separate dual wifi radios (2.4Ghz / 5Ghz)
* 4 x 1GbE LAN ports
Cons
* Missing individual port status LEDs.
* Top 'status' LED is useless.
* Reboot required for almost ANY type of setting change in the admin interface.
* Single MAC address filter table for both wireless and wired clients (see summary).
* Odd intermittent latency between client and router (both wifi & wired) (see summary).

Summary
Purchased this unit because I needed a new dual-band 2.4/5Ghz wifi router and I was happy with my previous 2.4Ghz router (a Trendnet TEW-633GR).

First off, the LED on top is basically useless and is horrible to navigate with the unlabelled arrow keys. Also, there is absolutely no port status indication on the front so be sure to check which Trendnet models have this feature. My older TEW-633GR has a complete port status display so you can see which ports are connected, the activity on each port, and whether the speed of each of the wired ports are negotiated at 100 or 1000. These features are relatively minor but I find them useful.

The admin interface has also been 'downgraded' from previous models. A reboot is required for almost ANY change in the configuration. This is especially annoying when adding IPs or MACs to access lists - the router prompts to reboot after each individual entry! My old Trendnet router did not do this and would allow the user to save/reboot after all the changes in the access table were completed. Another note on the MAC address filtering capabilities, there is one a SINGLE mac address list for both the wired and wireless hosts. The old router would allow the user to select  whether they wanted the MAC address list to apply to either the wireless clients, wired clients, or both. I spoke to Trendnet technical support and they confirmed that this is the same for all their new products (which is very disappointing).

Also noticed some strange latency issues with this router while pinging it's gateway IP address (.1) every 0.1 seconds. Every 15-20 seconds I would see a jump from 0.1 ms to 200-256 ms from both a wired and wireless client. No explanation why this router was doing this but I confirmed that my old router (TEW-633GR) did not exhibit this behaviour.

So, I used to be a fan of Trendnet, if you want a decent 2.4Ghz N router, look at the TEW-639GR (the successor to my old router). If you want a good router that supports 5Ghz, look to a different manufacturer.

I would recommend the Cisco E3000 (Linksys), it's a great router, has all the features most people need, good overall performance, excellent MAC filtering options, and the interface allows the user to make many changes without requiring a reboot.

Pros
Looks cool with the LCD. Dual-band for the future. Easy setup.
Cons
LCD doesn't turn off to save power.
Summary
As my main router in the basement, it has the gigabit ports to network my 3 PC's which is super fast. Signal strength upstairs seems to be okay (3 bars). Haven't tested the 5GHz antenna yet but heard that you should change the default channel to get better bitrates (CH153 is the one to change to).

Pros
Whiz-bang LCD panel
Decent range
Cons
Price is a little on the high side
Summary
Got this on sale to replace a flaky router. I'm using it with stock firmware and don't know if there is any modded firmware for it. It works pretty good although I live in a small place so can't verify how good the range could be.

The only downside is that the LCD panel buttons are not intuitive to figure out.

Comment: Trendnet with the thought of entering into the high end market has included a dual band Gigabit Ethernet port, LCD, two USB ports and offers at an affordable price of $150. The Trendnet does impress with its features but its performance it is definitely not perfect.

Comment: There are things I would have liked to see different; like a tilting screen and a more complete wizard, but overall I cannot complain about its performance. It has and still is doing everything I have asked of it without missing a beat. It is true that it does not have the range we have seen from a
