Engadget Summary

D-Link's AC1750 may not provide the best speeds among 802.11ac routers, but it's still plenty fast. Though the setup process for D-Link routers has always been relatively simple, PC Mag feels the management software's interface is "cluttered." But interface aside, if you're ready to make the jump to the AC wireless spectrum you'll be happy to know the AC1750 delivers "fast data speeds" according to CNET, and TrustedReviews says the router delivered "barnstorming" speed during transfers, though Expert Reviews found them "slow" compared to competing devices like the ASUS RT-AC66U. Overall, critics were happy with how the AC1750 performed and it's a good place to dip your toe into the AC wireless waters.
