    Have you used any other brand for comparison?

    Price points are always a concern, but my experience with Apple products is you get what you pay for. So… I don't mind paying more for the Extreme.

    As for paying that price for a Netgear or Linksys, I'd say forget it. Those products have only lasted months through my experience.
    Yes. I've used devices from Linksys, Netgear, Belkin, and I'm sure there are a couple I don't recall.

    I went with the Linksys WRT1200AC and no complaints. I purchased a WRT because it is part of OpenWRT, so I cannot comment on the stock firmware. I used the stock for about a week and it was slick and relatively fast.

    As for the router itself: the N-band reaches far with good throughput at far distances, no noticeable dropped packets or slowness, no constant restarts (I personally restart once a week), no blurred or choppy streaming video. I have several devices connected, around 12, with at least 3 streaming some sort video, plus streaming music to an Echo.

    As of date, I consider this Linksys a powerhouse and maintenance free. I bought it for less than half on Amazon as well.
