This is a very fast and stable router, with good wireless range. On the downside, the Netgear web UI doesn't expose as many advanced features as some competitors such as Asus, so some advanced features require Linux knowledge.

I've been waiting for a deal on this due to the rave reviews. Is this the best price it's going to get? And is this the best Wi-Fi router to get right now in the $100-$150 range? I was going to get the x6s from Costco but some of the reviews say it has connection issues. Tough decision since the x6s is higher in terms of router model but at almost the same price as the x4s.

I've been using x6s. No connection issue. The only problem I have is the router will drop the speed for Usenet sometimes. I couldn't figure out why. Must be some settings.

Found a new one on eBay for $102 so I would say this price is very good. R7800 is generally regarded as pinnacle of single router AC. A mesh system would get better coverage for a large space, but with the cons of mesh.

What are the cons of mesh besides price?

As already noted, price is the big con of mesh. Also, the initial installation/configuration is more complicated. To combat that, some mesh systems have less features so read the specs if you need something like QOS. Latency will be higher as you are adding another stop. The range of a single mesh node is generally worse than a router, but that roughly translates to cost (as you can just add more nodes).

FWIW, SmallNetBuilder has the X4S ranked #1 and the X6S ranked #9.

Anyone have any more info on this? If this is true, I am definitely jumping on this deal.
