Available online and in store.

The R6900 looks like it's nearly identical to the popular R7000, less one USB 2.0 port, but otherwise this is among the cheapest I've seen either outside of a YMMV clearance find.

This should be the R7000 which I've been using for 2 years and it's going strong. Bought it for the same price 2 BF ago

If this is truly identical to the R7000 (barring the one less USB port) then this is a pretty good price. If you live in a moderate size home it should be sufficient for your needs.

So i know absolutely nothing about routers. I currently rent one from frontier communications (pay $12 a month) and i have 2 laptops, a desktop, 3 phones, a tv, a xbox one, amazon firestick and a chromecast all going thru this router. Home is about 2k sq ft. What should i get that will be good for all my devices? Note that at max 5-6 devices are being used at the same time. Thanks!

This should work great for you. I have a 3 story home and the R7000 is in the attic. I get good coverage all the way to the basement. Stop paying those rental fees 😀

I've been looking at routers all week and in spite of the blazing speeds....you won't likely get the those speeds in the real world. Most clients don't support the 1300+ Mbps over wireless....certainly not at any distance.

After much research I actually decided to go old school with the ASUS Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router, Black ( RT-AC68U) for $99 on Amazon yesterday.

Yeah I know, it came out in 2013 but even the reviews for the AC300, AC3200s suggest that they are no better than the AC1900.

The 3600s and 5300s seem to have range issues (or quality issues) and even reliability issues (this goes for the Netgears and the Asus)....and none justify $300+.
I poured through reviews on Amazon, comments on boards, pro reviews, etc.

Arguably, for the money, even if its only dual-band, the Asus AC1900 is one of the best routers made in the past 5 years w/r/t to performance and range. If you are looking for something with more ports or unique features then you'll need to go with a new model...but I'm most interested in performance and range.
