I took about a month to review this product so i could have some time to use it and see if it delivered as promised. For someone who's been using routers for over 15 years, i'm giving this router 5 whole stars. I've been very impressed. Speed was instant compared to my older Belkin router. Very stable, haven't had a single issue since i turned this thing on almost 2 months ago. Range it exactly as stated. The router is in my upstars home office and i can browse the internet in my basement or even outside the house. This is my first Netgear product and i'll be sticking with them from now on.
I have a 4K TV that I use wireless. Was getting a lot of buffering and hangups with my other router when streaming 4K content. I called tech support of the TV manufacturer who got into the TV remotely and said everything was fine with the TV and suggested it was a router or ISP problem. I get a constant 177 down and 24 up so knew that wasn't a ISP problem. Bought the Nighthawk X4S AC2600 wireless router. Very easy to setup, took about 10 minutes. That took care of my problem with the 4K streaming and get twice the coverage I had before with every wireless gadget I own. The unit is a little pricey, but you get what you pay for.
I purchased the x4s to replace my aging Linksys. I have the new x4s router on one end of my house and my office is in the basement of the other end. I get strong signal, even with 5G! I also get a strong 2.4G signal in my backyard and driveway. It's amazing. I am finally getting the speeds that I pay for from my ISP. We have a 2500 sq ft home and works great. My in-laws came over for the weekend and out of curiosity, had them stream from their mobile devices, the Apple TV, Xbox, and my laptop. Not a single bit of lag or buffering. Definitely worth the investment. I just wish I would've purchased sooner. Great product!
This is so far the best router I have ever had. I have tried Asus, Linksys, several other Netgear, and TPLink, and none of them fly like this one. I have 250 mbps cable service and I routinely get 297 mbps via wireless. The total speed is not just due to the router, I had to upgrade my modem and wiring.
I've been having problems with YouTube my main source of news and entertainment. So I tried two different modem router combinations and that didn't quite cut it. From a suggestion from a colleague I decided to go the modem router route. So I picked up the Nighthawk as my router option. And from the raw power of it I haven't had any issues since. Thank you net gear.
The router is a little older now (review written 12/2018) but it still has great features and is way more than powerful enough to handle all my family members internet needs. The online management and remote management is useful but maybe a little limited for some power users. More than enough for me though.
This was an incredible upgrade from my old router that i had for 7 years. I reviewed a lot of routers before finally choosing this one. My speeds increased from a max of 38 mbs to over 110!
Love the usb ports and the ability to access the drives from anywhere.
The one downside is that I don't like the perental controls and the ability to limit hours by decice is more difficult that my old Asus.
This router couldn't have been easier to set up and it works great! I have a solid brick home, with solid brick interior walls. I knew it would be a challenge even for a good router. The cable installer started talking about extender options even before his set up was done. But much to his surprise and my delight none are needed.
I found this router, to be very easy to install. The instructions were very clear. Once it was hooked up the computer took care of the rest. You can install it your self and set up things the way that you want to. I have had it only for a few weeks. It is working great. I Love that it sends its signal to every computer at once. I do notice the difference.
