This router works great, packaged nicely and was easy to install. No problems so far. Range is excellent 1300 sq home and I get good connection from other side of house.
The Nighthawk X6 is an awesome router. The two 5ghz bands are perfect to separate devices that use high bandwidth. Excellent range and speed. My iPhone went from an average Speedtest result of 52 Mbps to 104mbps by simply upgrading the router.
