The Pros:Uses several enhancements to optimize wireless video transmission - great for streaming services such as Netflix. Good value - costs about half the price of similarly featured routers. Looks nice - features a streamlined, minimalist aesthetic.
The Cons:Glossy finish - attracts fingerprints and dust. Internal antennas only - there's no way to hook up an external Wi-Fi antenna. USB hard drive sharing is read only - there's no way to write to the network drive.
