When you want the best and fastest WiFi speeds from a router it usually means shelling out serious dough, but in the case of Netgear's Nighthawk R7000 the high price might be more than worth it.
While some routers are very user friendly, the R7000 confounded some critics, with Hardware.info finding it "disorganized." But once the R7000 is set up it's smoother sailing, with performance that TweakTown calls "stunning" and PC World says is "very fast." Even better, the R7000 doesn't skimp on range, which PC Mag finds "excellent."
The speed and reliability of AC come at a steep price -- even more if you need to buy adapters -- but the Netgear R7000's performance justifies its big price tag.
