    "The AC1900 wifi router has good range. My wifi enabled electronic devices (TV, phone, laptop) work well regardless of how far away they are from the router. I think that this version on the NETGEAR nighthawk is even better than the AC1750. Highly recommend."

    "Peak wireless speeds break new ground and an attractive new design with a simple setup. The 5GHz falters at range and the USB 3.0 port badly positioned and is a bit expensive."

    "Excellent! I know how those who play games want the best of the best connection. Everything is described very well. It even comes with an animated video which helps those who don't understand everything, which I did think there was a bit too much writing to take everything in. "

    "I have two Google WiFi units in my house to help boost the signal from my router. The difference in speed is amazing. I thought I had decent download times before, but I was wrong once these helped amplify the signal. Web pages load so much faster now."
