It's a decent price, but not a great price, IMHO.

T-Mobile version was $49 just the other day. Currently it's back up to $99.

I tried to get one of those but they sold out so damn quick. I was at work when I saw it, and that was already a couple hours after being posted to Slickdeals... Frown

Walmart normal clearance price is in the 70s, some stores had it for $50 and some even $20. But I think the normal price in Amazon is around $100.Saw it selling for $199 at BB months ago.

This is a fantastic router with Merlin firmware installed. I have one of these paired with the free T-Mobile version and I'm getting 150Mbps from one end of the house to my home theater for flawless HD streaming.

Yeah, I think T-Mobile underestimated the demand for this router with the coupon, and discontinued it.

That's an old issue.
There is no problem now.
Also it was not a hardware issue, it was a firmware issue.

Any reason to buy this over the T Mobile version if I'm not going to flash either one?
