Is this like the next "highest end" consumer router? Or is it really just a qos focused gaming router? More concerned with qos for video and streaming than I am gaming

Netgear really doesn't have much details other than this: http://www.netgear.com/npg/xr500/...e-features

It is a higher end router with Duma OS for gaming built in. Like the R1, but with AC instead of only B, G & N.

Just as an FYI, Micro Center had a deal on the XR500 last week for $219.99. It is no longer available, but just to put this deal into perspective.

I bought this router from Best Buy a month ago and have to say this was so much better than my linksys router, the os is fantastic, the router is blazing fast, there is so much customization available is amazing and it's very simple to understand unlike other router brands. Performance is just a+. I have about 15 devices connected to it wired/wireless and performance has been rock solid.

Price is a bit high, but I don't buy routers everyday, so it's a good long term investment for me.

This is a good deal since it comes with a really nice switch.

If this goes on rebate I'll buy it to test it out, and see how it works.

Is the switch worth it for streaming?

I guess he is asking whether streaming quality is impacted by using the switch versus direct Ethernet to the router.

Pretty much. I should have been more detailed, but i was tired and lazy.

I found Microcenter has it for 219.00 I'm sure some of us locally can get deal if they don't have Costco Membership...

This is a pretty good deal. Switch is 80 on amazon, so youre paying 220 for the router.
