What's great about it: Easy to set up, great performance, good price
What's not so great: N/A
I purchased this NETGEAR router for my apartment studio, and it was very easy to install. I connected it directly to the ethernet cable with internet connection and used the resource CD included, following the instructions on the booklet. I have used the Wi-Fi for 2 laptops and one smart phone and had no problems so far. Excellent performance for a reasonable price. I would recommend it over another brand.

I am not one to EVER write a review, but seeing as how I read most of the reviews on this model before my purchase...my 2 cents might help someone else out. This router was purchased to replace my D-Link which died on me...and what an improvement it was! Super easy and quick installation (not sure what happened with others who purchased this unit). The network was setup and I was able to connect 2 laptops (one of which has Windows 7) in under 5 minutes. I've only been up and running for about a week, but so far there have been no issues at all. Before writing this review I connected my Blu-Ray player to the network so I can stream Netflix, I think the signal strength is much better. Also the WPS feature on it is GREAT!!! Saves you a lot of time from typing in uber long network passwords on your xbox 360 controller or Blu-Ray remote.
The only thing negative I have to say is that I wish this was my first router. Hope this helps someone as it is my first ever review.
Upgraded my router from the old 54 Mbps and this works like a dream. It won't slow down my internet even if 3-4 devices are connected at once. I can stream a show, surf the Internet on my laptop, and connect my phone to the Internet and my internet speed will not be hindered. Great for 75 Mbps speeds or less, from my experience.
I have been using this type of router for a long time. My last one was damaged by a power surge of some kind. based upon the service from the last one I replaced it with the same type which was very easy to install and is working as it should.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Review 14 for NETGEAR - Wireless-N Router - Black
This is the 1st time I've ever had a router. Net .
I bought the router because our old netgear router stopped working after many years. It works great and was easy to set up. We love it. The wifi is slower in the bedrooms because the router is in our living room, but it still works fine.
