D-Link Amplifi HD Media Router 2000 (DIR-827)


The hardware makes the DIR-827 a fast dual-band router, but issues with software and throughput at range leave room for improvement.

Excellent throughput at shorter ranges. Loaded with features. SD card reader and USB port

Throughput drops significantly with distance. Some software setup issues. Long reboots required for many configuration changes

Good Router


Had it for 8 months now. Have only had to re-boot it twice. Very quick even with 3+ cell phones on Wi-Fi, two computers downloading (also via Wi-Fi), and streaming HD content on the Smart TV (Smart TV running on 5GHz, all others on 2.4GHz)

Gets really hot! I have a special table that hides the router between a hidden shelf under the top surface. The top of the table gets *hot* from the router, even though its a 1/2" piece of wood! This may cause issues in the long run...we'll see

Not Impresses


Im giving this thing 2 weeks b4 i decide to keep it or not. Because i bought the #1 rated router for a reason. It better live up to the hype

Good sysytem, works very fast, set up very easy

You have to figure a way to have it suspended in mid air or get a fan to it. The 1st day i had it set it up and had it siiting there the way it was advertised on the box "sitting flat on an upper shelf with nothing around it so it could breath. It got...

lovin the dual so far


Lots of options, rock solid so far, numerous parental controls options, decent build and looks, decent web interface, auto setup worked well out of box when i actually followed their directions

not cheap, 5GHZ coverage seems a bit weaker than the 2. almost overwhelming possibilities for config if you are not a networking guru it can seem daunting at first. no wall mount options

Needs firmware update


Once D-Link fixes the bug of not being able to enter anything over 2048kbps in the manual upload speed box for the QOS settings, this thing should ROCK!

Powerful Ubicom processor, 256mb ram

If your internet upload speed is over 2mbps, then the QOS engine won't work. Some reason, that is the max speed they put into the firmware on this thing

Amazing Router!


This router is so fast. It improved my network performance by so much! I can stream HD videos with no lags. I love the SD card slot feature. Well worth the money.

Not worth the price


The D-Link DIR 827 Router is not worth the price. I had to return it because it doesn't handle IPv6 traffic effectively.
