The Asus ROG Rapture is the ultimate router for gamers (and Wi-Fi nerds)

 

The Asus ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 is massive and fast but only gamers and geeks can appreciate it features. Here's CNET's full review.

The GT-AC5300 has fast performance, excellent Wi-Fi range and includes loads of unique gaming-centric features. The router has free built-in lifetime protection against online threats, has eight Gigabit LAN ports, and can combine two of them into a...

The router is bulky, expensive and generally overkill for most homes' needs. Its interface can be daunting, and its mobile app only works locally.

The Asus GT-AC5300 is the ultimate Wi-Fi router for hardcore gamers and geeks.

Netgear R8500 Nighthawk X8 AC5300 Smart WiFi Router review: An exciting niche Wi-Fi router that costs way more than its usefulness

 

As the first AC5300 home router, the Netgear Nighthawk X8 R8500 is the most expensive on the market. But is it worth the investment? Here's CNET's full review.

The Netgear R8500 Nighthawk X8 Router supports the latest Wi-Fi speed standard, AC5300. It mostly delivers fast Wi-Fi performance and has outstanding signal stability. The router has six LAN ports (as opposed to four seen in most routers) and has a...

The X8 is crazy expensive and doesn't necessarily deliver a better Wi-Fi experience than much cheaper routers. Currently there are no clients on the market that can take advantage of the AC5300 speed standard and at launch the MU-MIMO feature is not...

Only savvy users with a high-end server in their network should consider the Netgear R8500; for everyone else, there are many other router options that deliver as good or better performance for less.

A monster of a router with power and features to spare. Asus ROG Rapture GT-AC5300.

Class-leading Wi-Fi speeds ; Hugely versatile ; Masses of features ; Great for gaming

Very expensive ; Not for novice users ; Overkill for most homes

A monster of a router with power and features to spare. It’s probably overkill for most users, though.

Netgear R8500 Nighthawk X8 AC5300 Smart WiFi Router review: An exciting niche Wi-Fi router that costs way more than its usefulness

 

The Netgear R8500 Nighthawk X8 AC5300 costs $400. That's a hell of a lot for a router, especially since we live in a world where you can get a decent one for less than $20. So the big question is, is this router worth its steep asking price?

Consumer review (cnet.com)

I really love this router. It fits right into my home network greatly.

 

I had my reservation about the price but I have been a big fan of Netgear routers for some time. My family and I use about 4 tablets, three computers, two smart TV and Fire TV/sticks. I have been using this router and I have not had any lag time or all...
