Great Router for somewhat "advanced" users
Overall a great router. However Apple does some Apple things that aren't "user friendly" and directed to force you into more Apple services and such.
For example, I have a WD MyCloud (nas) I use to locally backup photos from phones etc... Apple does not support UPnP so you have to manually setup port forwarding, and a static IP to get "AC" transfer speeds, others you're stuck with really crappy relay speeds which are painfully painfully slow. If you can do that, you won't have any problems. On literally any other modern router you just plug and play hence the name "universal plug and play".
The Airport Utility app works well. However you will need an iPad or PC/MAC. Initial Setup from an iPhone is buggy for whatever reason.
If all you use is Apple products you'll be fine. But Apple doesn't offer a really useful NAS, they want you to go iCloud - Mac - TimeCapsule. Which is a needless hassle when you can go from iPhone - straight to MyCloud at N/AC speeds automatically every time you come home.
Range is great and bandwidth for multiple devices is great. Bigger than I expected from photos but still good looking. Beats having external antennas all over the place.Read full review
