How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The EA4500 is a good dual-band router, but what sets it apart from others is access to Cisco's Cloud Connect service, which lets you fully control your router from anywhere. While that could be a useful service, it may not be worth spending an extra $50 for it, since you can get the earlier E4200 for just $99. The cheaper router will give you most of the same functionality as the EA4500, including good throughput and range, and USB hookups to connect hard drives and printers.
