super fast gigabit port speeds, decent signal and wifi speeds, NetGear Genie and looks nice.
39Mbs to my Galaxy S, 72Mbs to my laptop, not anywhere near the advertised speeds.
I love it! nowhere nears its advertised speeds.. I dont't even have any devices that have 5ghz, so not really a big deal, nor 802.11ac... I really bought this because it supports UnPn for NAS, got a READYNAS Duo v2, amazing stuff! Super easy setup with NETGEAR Genie, I love it! Get 100MBs+ speeds over the gigabit ports. I just let it manage itself and seems to do a pretty good job. WIFI to my laptops and netbook are about 7MBs read, 4MBs write, not great, but not too bad either, I can live with it.. I found I needed to change the WIFI channel to get the best reception, a few bands are used up in the neighborhood, after changing to channel 10, everything got so much faster.

Great Wifi range, very easy to setup, looks very elegant, great features
fairly big router but it's looks fancy so...
Very good router, purchased to replace a DIR-615 and WOW amazing difference. My router is located in the basement on the far right and i have a 3000sq/ft house incl garages. I still get 3 full bars at the complete end of the 3rd garage (far left of the house) I couldn't even get good signals in the kitchen with the DIR615!!!! and the DIR-615 used to drop  my connection non stop (wifi). Anyways great purchase and would recommand to anyone!!! Even thos it's a bit pricy at 199$ i got it on a price match at 159$...

Easy setup
Strong Signal
Non so far
The router is very easy to setup (I set it up using my phone). The signals are strong and you get what you paid for.

Solid signal on all my wireless devices, Ipad, laptop, Ioplay, PC
Got this to replace my 4500 Extreme that keep needing to be restarted due to no signal at all. Since I installed the Netgear WNDR4500 N900 I have rock solid wifi. Dual band works great. I can use my ipad and laptop 45 from the house in the backyard

Experience: 7 Months
Ability to turn off Wifi and stay connected thru ethernet
Not the easiest interface to use
Hands down stomps my old DLink 655 in the grd for maintaining a steady link with my wired and wireless computers in the house.

The network software is a little less intuitive than the DLink router ( but does offer much more advanced options.

Experience: 3 Days
stable wifi signal in both 2.4ghz and 5.0ghz
factory firmware update  is too slow
It has strong signal in both band and the most important thing is stable. It's very easy setup with app Netgear offers. It's hard to decide Asus n66u or this one....but I found a good deal with price match with ME for $ I choose netgear over ASUS.

It allows me to wirelessly stream NBA Broadband TV anywhere in the house with no lag, smooth as silk. Router is in the basement, gives me strong 4-bar signal on the second floor, opposite side of the house. Wired connections give full speed.
(1) It took about 30-60 minutes for the wireless signals to become stable. I thought I had a defective unit. (2) My Linksys VOIP ATA adapter was fried after plugging it in this router...but it may not be Netgear's fault. (3) Contrary to other reports, this router supports only one Dynamic DNS service provider. My cheap Rosewill router supports several and it's firmware provides more flexible options.
This Netgear may be an over-kill with its so-called 450M Wifi, although it should make the family perfectly happy with its supreme ability to stream videos. Your neighbors will wonder why next door's signals are stronger than theirs.

Note that ASUS RT-N56U Black Diamond router is more affordable and get better reviews from more-experienced users. But, some said they had compatibility issues with Shaw's SMC modem. (Too bad that's the modem I had.)

Easy to setup
Wan connections drops
Wireless speed very slow (16Mb/s)
I'm very desappointed with this router. I had a WNDR3700 which was working fine but it stopped working so I replaced with a WNDR4500. Since I only have problems like internet drops and the wireless speed is very slow. I use a laptop with a wireless card Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 and the best speed is 16 mb / s to 4 meters from the router. I tried several configurations but neither works well.

Very Fast
Easy setup
I replaced my flaky Linksys gigabit router with the Netgear N900. I am very impressed so far. My average internet download speeds have tripled and file transfer speeds between wireless clients on my network have doubled. The N900 by itself has more range than the two routers I had bridged to cover my house and yard. The setup is very easy and the unit itself is nice to look at. This is a serious piece of equipment and worth the extra cost to me. From now on I will look to Netgear products first.

Very good performance
Admin interface
I have replaced my old DLINK DIR-655 by this one. Performance is impressive, but I prefered the DLINK admin UI. A very good buy.
