I'll give you a TU because this is a good router. However, its not front page worthy because it was $39 AR about a month ago. That being said, I think its a great price for dual band N with Gagibit ethernet ports. I've had it about a month now and the range is very good, reaching all the way from my basement to my Roku in the upstairs bedroom. Running speed tests 2 floors away shows it maxing out my cable modems bandwidth. I'm also fairly certain the ethernet ports work well as I had a LAN party of about 10 people hooked up (obviously had to use some extra switches). My main complaints are that WPS doesn't always work and the 5GHz band doesnt perform well beyond one floor. However, to my knowledge, the last issue is really more related to the physics of 5GHz vs 2.4GHz bands.

Edie: I just realized I actually bought the N600 TL-WDR3600 version. Most of my review is probably still applicable, but I would assume the 5GHz band performs better on this model.

That FP deal was during black Friday so it gives this deal some leeway on pricing

Does anyone know the following?

If I buy this from a third party on Amazon to avoid paying the tax would I still qualify for the rebate?

Yeah, looking at the dates, looks like it was black friday pricing.

The $40 TP-link from a few weeks ago was the N600. Obviously the N750 is a bit better, but you also have to have the antennas and wireless nic card that supports multiple bands to take advantage of the extra speed.

How well does it work as a media server and a print server?

Looks like a decent deal but it only gets 3 'stars' on newegg. I try to only buy 4 star or better products.

yeah, i was gonna bite but based on reading the negative reviews on both amazon and newegg it doesn't sound worth it.

This is one of the best router out there.

I have been using it for a while. the firmware that it came with was kind of weak but support sent me new firmware and it is working like a charm. this is an excellent price for this router. Support is very responsive and one of the best that i have worked with.

it has gigabit port, print server and can be used as a media server also, however i have not used it as media server.

Most routers suck without custom firmware. From all accounts this router seems to be good once you get one of the open source firmwares on it.

I'm kind of jealous. Got the 3600 a few weeks ago and now this one is on sale. I don't even have any 5ghz devices except for my laptop but it's always good to be future proof.

BH Photo sold 4300 through 12/1 for 40 AR...didn't arrive for almost a month...set up was a breeze, looks like a giant cyclops from a 60s japanese scifi on your desk, worked well for a week then mysteriously stopped connecting/disconnecting lappy and smartphone...hours and hours of aggravation ensued...got returned (refunded for half the price)..still awaiting the rebate for other half..wouldn't really touch TP again....

AC gigabit wireless standard is just around the corner. I would wait if possible.
