Pros
Good features, up-time, fast.
Cons
Range, DD-WRT support (granted, not product related). Would like to be see more features in the firmware that you can customize.
Summary
My initial thoughts on this weren't good. And given the reviews online I didn't expect much. Item was a refurb that I got for less than $50 and ncix offered free shipping. Unit is not the latest version also but I expected that however it came with latest (07/31/2014)firmware which seems to have gotten all of the bugs out that people were having issues with.
Initial setup was fairly easy, with just a few quirks (settings not being saved for some reason and one or two times I had a total loss of connection which may have been modem related). After that I found that at least two devices that were connected via wireless would randomly drop  out. After a bit of searching I updated the device drivers for those devices and have had no issues with them since. recently got an android media player, gave it media priority on the 5ghz band (all by itself) and have had no issues streaming movies from NAS or online.
I had an ASUS Wl-520 before with Tomato running on. It became my bottle neck and that was the only reason I upgraded as it was rock solid. Would love to have the same control on this thing but DD-WRT doesn't seem totally stable on the 6500 from what I've read. It's super fast on speed tests and has been a major upgrade speed wise. It's been running stable now without a reboot for several weeks so no complaints there either. Would like to able to customize features but that may have to wait for stable DD-WRT. If it lasts as long and continues to be trouble free as the ASUS this will be winner.

Pros
Easy,Fast,Stable
Cons
Nothing for now
Summary
I was able to easily to manually configure it without the CD and one trick to learn with this model is the firmware need to be update d with factory reset then restore your configuration.
Other than that nothing goes wrong yet with it no random shutdown or internet connection lost on LAN or WIFI. Even with all the bad review we can find on internet I didn’t have them.
And I must say 100$ off for what I think a good router now after update  fix etc... is a great deal.
The WIFI coverage is very good on the AC 5g.
I am living in a condo were people have all WIFI like 16 WIFI network in my area I have no issue. But I did not test the 2.4 WIFI I am using only 5G

Pros
Love the range
Cons
None
Summary
Works exactly as expected, perfectly. Upgrading from a EA2700. Had the EA6500 setup wirelessly in under 5 mins. I personally am not weary of "RMs" as I trust the Bathtub Curve.

Again, happy I went with Linksys. Will look into upgrading to DD*WRT soon.

Pros
Performance is good for a $70 router.
Was stable but I've only had it for a week.
Good looking router.
Cons
The GUI is easy to use but at the risk of losing many advanced configurations.
The apps were pretty much useless.
Relatively large footprint.
Summary
Bought this to upgrade my e4200. Bad idea. My e4200 performed better than this on both 2.4ghz and the 5ghz in the same location. I'm giving this a 3 star because its a good router for the price. But if your looking for a high performance router, look elsewhere.

Pros
-Price
-Fast transfer speed (HDDs transfer speed is the bottleneck)
Cons
-PS3 disconnecting problem
Summary
Fast speed and everything, but my PS3 wireless connection doesn't keep up. I am always getting disconnected from the PSN. Wired connection is the only option.

However, transfering speed is the same as my Hard Drives.

Pros
It works and its simple to set up
Cons
Model is revision 1.0, not HD video pro
Summary
Simple to set up and works right out of the box, just plug and go.

This is revision 1 model.

It also works with dd-wrt, but make sure you first flash the stock firmware back to version 1.1.28.146856 if you want dd-wrt to install properly.

Pros
All the bells and whistles you could want.
Cons
If you want any security, you must disable all of the bells and whistles.
Summary
Not a router for the security conscious. Default file sharing leaves router open to getting rooted.

Pros
Fast, when it works.
Cons
Power pack was defective on the first unit I received.
On the second unit the firmware updates keep being lost. Obviously the flash memory is defective.
Missing some basic features that other routers have.
Summary
Avoid Cisco/Linksys wherever possible.
