  • Overkill - Thy name is Nighthawk x10.From the LEDs on the antenna to the ridiculous coverage range to the quad-core cpu

  • Much faster than my cable router, and much better coverage throughout the house!
  • I’m finding the 5g channel works well although without much range, but the 2.4g is very unstable and very slow.

Reviews around feature (4.34 of 5)

  • I love the features that allow you to control internet access by connected device (great feature for families)
  • Users are stuck with a router that doesn't support a major feature
  • I bought it on the recommendation of Wirecutter without doing enough research on the feature set - it lacked some features that I would have used

speed

Reviews around speed (4.22 of 5)

  • It's a great router that has consistent coverage and speed across the entire house.
  • I was blaming our provider for slow speed, but it was our WiFi router
  • The speed is slow for what it is and the wifi connection is lost all the time making internet browsing annoying.
  • I had an old router which was giving me very slow speeds (60 mbps) while my connection speed is 250 mbps
  • I believe that and the CPU of this router are what make for the great speed.

firmware issue

Reviews around firmware issue (3.61 of 5)

  • It was easy to disable the wireless signals for both frequency ranges as well as to change the default password.
  • I insisted that it's quite obviously an unresolved firmware issue (others have reported similar problems), but Netgear denied this and claimed it must be defective hardware.
  • Do not buy this router until the fix this firmware issue

warranty

Reviews around warranty (2.68 of 5)

  • I called tech support only to find out that you have to pay for support after your 90 day warranty is expires
  • What really wasn't good, however, was that the streaming sound through the Auralic was not nearly as good as with the XR500, not even as good certainly as with the older
  • 14 months after buying this ( you know, 2 months after the warranty expired) it just shot craps.
  • After encountering their terrible customer support, I found that this is standard for Netgear - any google search about Netgear RMA throws up pages after pages of people who were told to purchase phone support for them to honor the warranty.
  • Their deceptive warranty practices are truly appalling.

drive

Reviews around drive (1.54 of 5)

  • Prior to this I would not have recommended this router to anyone who specifically wanted to use the USB ports for external hard drives, but now I'd say I guess it depends on the hard drive and obviously Netgear's list is not the best one to go by
  • I use the USB to run a backup hard drive for our family PC as well.
  • It allows to connect one USB 2 GB HDD external hard drive that you can access from anywhere, so media sharing is already available
  • Turn on the router, unplug the hard drive power, plug in the USB cord, plug in the power... maybe
  • I like all of the options on the Nighthawk but was sad that our USB hard drive was not compatible.
