Why would you "assume" that R stands for refurbished and then post of foolish post showing your ignorance by expressing your opinion as if I were fact.

People such as yourself irritate the hell out of me. You have an idea and your idea becomes a fact in your own mind so you spew out your nonsense on slickdeals.net.

I snagged one of these from Best Buy when they had them for $120. This router rocks!
