Costco.com has the Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 on sale for 119.99 for Costco members. Not available in the club, online only. The item number for this is unique to Costco so price matching can be tricky. I had this price matched at BestBuy with minimal resistance. Cheapest price available.

What's the difference between the costco.com and bestbuy models? There is always some difference if they have different model numbers.

I think it's the number of usb ports.

To my understanding the Costco model is identical in hardware, operation, and design. The only known difference I could find is that you cannot load some open source firmware to the Costco model, not a basic user function, 99% of users would not be impacted

Thanks, it looks like from the pictures there is an extra USB port on the back for the Best Buy one.

My best buy won't price match costco if you have to sign in to see the price.

How did you get them to price match if the model numbers are different?

Also, from the pics, it doesn't look like the costco model has a usb port in the back but the bb model does.

I had the chance to buy 3 of these @ $49.99 each from Walmart but I passed to buy the Onhub for the same price. I'm starting to think that I made a bad decision.

Costco is currently selling the R6900P which is nearly identical to the R7000P sold elsewhere. This page on Wikidevi [wikidevi.com] highlights the differences between Costco exclusive models and their retail counterparts. The R6900P is missing the USB 2.0 port (but still has the USB 3.0 port) and it has non-standard 1024-QAM (called NitroQAM) disabled on the 802.11ac radio which limits the maximum theoretical speed but probably won't affect real-world performance since very few people would have a wireless adapter that also supports 1024-QAM plus the signal has to be flawless for this feature to work when both sides support it.

The model# is different but both boxes say ac1900. One manager said no the other looked at it, mumbled nighthawk, nighthawk, 1900,1900 ok Smilie
