  • REMINDS ME OF A SCI-FI MOVIE OR FUTURAMA
    Verified BuyerReviewed by BrianKe1995 - October 23, 2021

    Installing the router was a breeze. ASUS customer service was very pleasant and walked me through the steps. It took me 7 minutes tops. I love the app. It has a security feature that requires a pin I'm no gamer I just liked the aesthetics of the router. This is the reason why I bought it. I haven't had any hiccups with my wifi because of this router. Furthermore, the wifi hasn't disconnected or slowed down. I have Xfinity service by the way! I had Century Link before and the service was lagging & constantly disconnecting -__- Xfinity's wifi was great but I hated paying the rental fee for using their equipment. It's complete BS. Why pay them for something I can buy and own The ASUS lights are a plus. It's so futuristic. It was well worth the money!

    Verified BuyerReviewed by Dougs88 - May 5, 2021

    This router is very nice it has a lot of features,easy to set up and the extra rgb light is eye catching, the complain of this router is not wall mountable but me i mount it to the wall, you just need a bit of thinking how to make your own bracket, see it on my photos.

    It has worked out just fine thus far. I will say it looks really wicked and has different color schemes. We have ours on a rotating color scheme.

  • Mind Blowing! Sheeshhhh
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Kingblu19 - July 28, 2021

    This is crazy the speed is insane and this is my first time having internet to myself and im enjoying it! Definitely worth getting when i be playing Fortnite i get around 24 to 10 ping when downloading games and updates it starts downloading in no time and when i be on YouTube no buffering at all the video starts quick. In conclusion this is something a gamer like me needed tbh bc bck then i was using my neighbor’s wifi and tht kinda sucked then they got new internet so i was out of luck but im all good now with what i got now. Also i have spectrum to as for the internet provider but that shouldn’t make a difference
