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.
Homes with lots of devices will benefit from the Linksys EA8500's speedy Wi-Fi and storage performance, but those with modest needs should look for something cheaper.
The WRT1200AC is just way too expensive for a second-tier 802.11ac router.
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.
Unless you love the radical design, the D-Link DIR-890L/R doesn't have enough to justify its hefty cost.
The lack of Gigabit Ethernet in many ways cancels out the Netgear R6100's support for the fast 802.11ac standard and makes it just an average Wi-Fi router.
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.
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 AirStation AC 1750 DD-WRT Router is an excellent choice for savvy users who want deep levels of customization.
