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.
Despite its powerful hardware, the R7500 doesn't have the performance and features to justify its premium price tag.

Though feature-rich, the Skydog's hardware is too slow and limited to justify its high cost and ongoing subscription pricing.
