We needed to replace our other router because it kept dropping the signal all the time so we took a chance and ordered this one.
First: With this router, you can surf just as fast on an Android Phone as you can online with high-speed internet, in Wi-Fi mode! That is saying something because with our old router, I wouldn't try Wi-fi because it was so slow.
Second: It has 3 "antenna's" dedicated for specific usages.
Third: It's one of the highest gigabites per second on the market, thus speed.

I purchased this router as we needed a replacement for our home. We have several computers a tablet, etc. My daughter spend several days trying load this on our devices and it would just disappear by the next morning and we would start over. I finally returned it and went to a local store and bought a different router.

I'm no expert, but I researched new routers for some time before settling on this one. I don't have any devices that use wireless-ac yet, but was looking for the most up-to-date router that will accommodate them when I do. Also wanted both 2.4 and 5 gHz bands, as my cell phone usesd 2.4 but my new Roku 3, Kindle and Fire Stick all use either band. The 5gHz band does not have the bandwidth competition that the 2.4 does -- I'm in a 48-unit apartment building.
Although I had settled on wanting this router, I thought it would be some time before I could afford it. But then I found it on QVC with 3 easy-pays.
Routers depend so much on what equip you have and surroundings, this would not be something I would gift to anyone.
Rated 5 out of 5 by missakins Take advantage of High Speed Internet
This router is a great way to see an immediate boost to the high speed Internet you already have. It's able to provide more range (get Internet in the farthest rooms) and more of your Internet speeds (take advantage of the speeds you pay for).
This router has 2 bands, 2.4 and 5ghz. They both deliver good speed, but your newer devices can take advantage of the extra range that the 5ghz band can provide. Having both bands can help your newer devices download faster and farther while your older devices aren't left behind.
The router itself is attractive with a shiny white finish. It doesn't stick out in most décor, so you can place it where it can get the best signal, not hidden away in a closet. It comes with 3 antennas to provide the best range and reception.
I was provided with a test unit to try out and I was blown away by the performance. Using the cable company's built-in wifi I was getting about half the speed that I was promised over wifi, but with this TP-Link router I was regularly getting 80% or more of my paid speed when using my wifi devices.

I attached a 1TB portable drive to the usb 3.0 port. Now the family has shared storage for music, pics, videos and backup documents. Storage is password protected which is great. My only complaint is that, unlike Archer C7 v1, you cannot create multiple user account and assign read/write per user. So I live in fear of one of my kids unintentionally erasing all our files. Please make all your customers happy by updating firmware so that we can assign read/write access per user.
