Only those who do a lot of local intensive tasks via Wi-Fi, or who can appreciate the Asus RT-AC3200's excellent feature set, will find this router worth the investment.
The top routers that support the new 802.11ac standard on the market. Since there are not many of them, all of those on this list are the best of their kind.
The WRT1200AC is just way too expensive for a second-tier 802.11ac router.
Though not as innovative as it should be, the Linksys AC2400 Dual Band Wi-Fi Router E8350 is still a very good router thanks to its fast 5Ghz Wi-Fi performance and comparatively friendly pricing.
Though it's easy to use and having an extra band can result in higher speeds, the Linksys EA9200 doesn't have enough to justify its over-the-top price tag.
The hefty price aside, the Asus AC2400 RT-AC87U is the most complete 802.11ac router to date, capable of satisfying all your home networking needs.
Even when it's working well, the Netgear R8000 Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Tri-Band Gigabit Wireless Router has nothing to justify its expensive price tag.
With top performance and friendly pricing, the Trendnet TEW-818DRU is a excellent choice for those wanting a robust home network.
So long as you're not a networking newbie, the Totolink A2004NS AC1200 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router is a good deal for those living in a small or medium home.
Unless you live in a very small home and need a color router to match, skip D-Link's latest DIR-818LW in favor of more powerful options.
If you can afford the hefty price tag, the Linksys WRT1900AC Wi-Fi router is easily one of the best home routers on the market.
