This is an "enterprise" grade router. For all intents and purposes this router is overkill for home use. However, because of its price, it lends itself to being used in consumer/home environments.

NETGEAR makes enterprise gear as well so I'm going to assume you're referring to their "regular home" stuff.

In a nutshell the USG offers you more features than you'd find in a typical consumer router. Things like RADIUS, VLAN, site-to-site VPN, deep packet inspection, and loads of statistics/logging.

Stuff you really wouldn't use in a typical home environment. But if you're already an experienced networking/IT professional/geek or you enjoy learning it's nice to have all of the granular control.

This is pretty much regular price.

Just got one of these from B&H. It's absolutely awesome. Highly recommend.

I was torn between the USG and EdgeRouter but finally decided on the USG. The UniFi controller has matured greatly and it's jammed packed with features. The deep packet inspection is seriously great.

I can't think of anything that comes close to the value you get with this device. Especially if you're experienced with networking/IT or aren't afraid to learn.

Edit

I recommend pairing this purchase with a Raspberry Pi 3 to host the UniFi controller. It's cheaper than a cloud key and it's more fun to setup if you like to learn/tinker. If that's not really your jam you can install the controller on your Windows PC or just purchase the cloud key.

Unless you need SFP ports - just get the UniFi switch to go with it?

Can an expert weigh in on why this router is better than your typical Netgear router?

This is much closer to Commerical Cisco than Home Netgear is the best way to explain it.

What types of features should I read about that would benefit the average user? I just play PC games online and watch Netflix.

What is the preferred pairing to get wireless as well. Any Ubiquiti solutions you recommend?
The Amplifi HD Router seems to be $100 and I realize that is a home grade system. But it can do wireless as well.

Typically you would pair this USG with the UniFi access points. The UAP-AC-LITE, UAP-AC-LR, or UAP-AC-PRO.

Given the preferred mounting points for most of these access points seem to be on ceilings, do you need to run an ethernet from where the Gateway Router sits to the access point? Thanks for your answers.

What's the difference between this and OpenWrt? What is the lan/wan passthrough speed on this?
Thanks!
