Been reading the news on this for the past few days. Seems a bit overpriced for what it is, guessing the emphasis is on the usability. They're also targeting the wireless folks due to the fact it has only two ports. Sure, you can connect it to a switch and get more ports that way. But if we're going that route, might a well buy a dedicated AP and call it a day. Its nice, but not for the tech savvy peeps.

(my $.02)

$199 is the going rate for high-end routers. Is it that this one has less features or something?

Comixion, this will go well with my new Google Fiber (coming soon).

My beef ( :mrgreen: ) with it, is the lack of Ethernet ports. But being that most typical users have mostly wireless devices it should be to bad. From the wireless perspective, its got some pretty nice features. Its got 2.4 and 5ghz, and ac as well. I'll have to get my hands on it to see how the wireless range is.
