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.
Despite its powerful hardware, the R7500 doesn't have the performance and features to justify its premium 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.
CNET editor Dong Ngo tried and failed miserably to sound better using the T-Mobile Personal CellSpot with Wi-Fi calling, but he found it an outstanding deal anyway.
The SkyDog router combines near-obsolete hardware, and state-of-the-art firmware into a box that's destined to dig a hole your pocket. Good thing we have CNET editor Dong Ngo who says "not so fast!" to it!
With top performance and friendly pricing, the Trendnet TEW-818DRU is a excellent choice for those wanting a robust home network.
Despite a few minor shortcomings, the DIR-880L is still one of the best 802.11ac routers on the market.
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.
That's after redeeming a $10 mail-in rebate, but still a smoking deal for anyone who needs a new -- or even backup -- router.
CNET editor Dong Ngo shows you how to spy on your loved ones with Asus' new Wi-Fi router. It's fun!
