I've been running this for about 3 years without many issues. Don't have to reboot often, maybe once every 6 months. GUI/Web interface could use work though. Overall these are solid.

Damn it I missed it if it's "100% claimed" I'm assuming?

does this have any open source firmware? I was checking Google and didn't see anything like OpenWRT.

Is this right? Seems really low coverage and load; Up to 1500 sq ft Coverage & 25 Devices

I have it and it's been going strong for the last two years. I've had to reset it maybe twice.

Ooo, 6+ in every walmart near me, weird. Wonder if it's worth upgrading from a ASUS AC1900 router...

Most routers are pretty conservative with the coverage ratings... I'm using this router in a 2 story that is about 2700 sq ft and covers everywhere perfectly

mine died at 3 years, wifi would either slow to a crawl or just outright crap out and die (usually the 5ghz band but the 2.4 did too a few times). It would crap out 1-3 times a day requiring a hard reset to fix.. tried several older firmwares, tried a few setting tweaks (went through about 3 weeks of various troubleshooting efforts).... it sat on a monitor stand completely open (well ventilated). I would not recommend this router.

I ended up getting an asus rt-ac68u for $100 and so far it has been worth the extra money (2 months in no issues). GUI is way better than netgears. I hope it lasts. the r6700 was a good modem for the first 18 months then it started to die a slow death before it really became unreliable.

Nope. I have the ac1900 and both are great but if you are keeping stock firmware, asus is by far better.
I wonder if i could use the nighthawk as an access point

I had the ASUS modified from T-Mobile and it worked ok for almost 2 years when it started acting... (no 2.4GHZ wifi or both).
I got the AC2100 for $80 a bit over a year ago... it took a while to get used and set up with all my preferences, sharing, port forwarding, DNS..., but afterwards is running rock solid, only 2-3 reboots. I would buy again!

Actually I find most routers claim way more coverage than they can handle. we moved into a 2800+ sq ft place 1.5 story with some funky high ceilings and roof angles and my old Asus 1900 was having issue with extending signal to garage so I got a Samsung mesh 3 unit setup and that's been a nightmare. At this point I'd have to take a day off to change the router. Also 25 devices seems like a lot until you have several cameras, IOT devices, tablets, Echos and Google devices, TVs, mobile phones, etc.
