Pros
easy setup through the GUI
decent range.
usb ports.
wireless n
Cons
expensive
Summary
overall good buy.
haven't had any random disconnects.
GUI a little bit annoying, when setting up the connections and saving the setting it would just sit there saying that its processing. Just reload the interface and you will notice that the process was already finished.

Pros
Very good router, hardware is top notch and reliable.
Cons
Firmware is somewhat limited, runs a little hot
Summary
This is a great little router, runs very well on a standard setup and is easily configurable. Issues come up though if you wish to use it a little differently. I had to get custom firmware to be able to set-up my second unit since Access point wireless link connection only supports Opensystem/None or Opensystem/WEP only.

Experience: 11 Months
Pros
Fast, reliable LAN speeds, good wireless coverage. USB ports for external storage
Cons
Stock firmware is not so great
Summary
I have had this router for nearly a year and so far have been quite satisfied with it. Wifi speeds are excellent, with few dropped connections. USB ports for network storage is a nice feature too. Easy to set up, took less than 10 minutes. The stock firmware is not so great though. Once I put custom firmware on it I had no trouble whatsoever. Overall, well worth the price for a quality router.

Pros
speed almost as fast as wired connection
Cons
Not the greatest stock firmware
Summary
As a previous user mentioned, it's best to use custom firmware for this router. I had alot of disconnect issues until i switched to the custom firmware. issue solved and it now works great. The speeds on 5 G are as fast as a wired connection.

Pros
-Dual Band
-Cheap
-Super easy to set up
-reasonable price
-It simply works, much reviewed and tested product, all I wanted.
Cons
-The bandwidth at 2.4ghz kept getting clogged, changing the password solved it though lol.
Summary
Old Cisco router kept disconnecting all the users in the house so I decided to replace it with this. Worked within 5 minutes of settings it up, very simple and just works. After dealing with whole bunch of PC problems for the past couple of weeks along with midterms, sometimes you just want to buy a well testing product that simply works with no headache :)
Will buy again.

Pros
performance is good
Cons
expensive
Summary
Suggest flashing it with custom firmware, http://code.google.com/p/rt-n56u/, unlock more capability like VPN server, jumbo frame support and so on.

comes with an old firmware
Summary
Really, this router does everything as advertised once you update  the firmware(download from asus, unpack file, and upload to router).

Comment: RT-N56U specifications and abilities were quite intriguing: the box boasted hardware NAT implementation and it was claimed that the router could simultaneously work in two wireless ranges – 2.4 and 5 GHz with optimized the coverage of the wireless network segment.

Comment: The Black Diamond is a solid router. Its speed and reliability alone chalk it up to awesome in my book. Even more is the dual-band connectivity, which basically amounts to having two routers in one.
