My warning lights go off when you can't even find the item on the manufacturer's website. Probably a holiday special model just for Best Buy. They'll blow trough this sku and it'll never be seen again. Might not bode well for long-term firmware support.
It's here https://www.netgear.com/home/prod...rax48.aspx

No reviews though.
Do you mean TP-Link AX3000?

Some comparison:

TP-Link AX3000

Dual-Core CPU
2X2 (Tx/Rx) up to 2.4 Gbps on the 5GHz
2x2 (Tx/Rx) up to 574 Mbps on the 2.4GHz


VS

Netgear AX5200

Triple-core 1.5GHz processor
4x4 (Tx/Rx) up to 4.8Gbps on 5GHz 1024 QAM 20/40/80/160MHz
2x2 (Tx/Rx) up to 460Mbps 256 QAM 20/40MHz on 2.4GHz

Can't find reviews on this router anywhere, must be new or I'm doing something wrong. Any thoughts on this deal?

If it is 100 bucks off, this might worth it considering I got a tp link x 3000 for 129 bucks.

I didn' find any last night...It might be a best buy exclusive... which typically means a higher end model with few features removed.

Same. Wonder how this compares to the RAX45-100NAS that will be on sale at Costco for $130 ($20 less).

Saw this router for 50% off on Best Buy Site

$149.99 seems to be a Black Friday leaked offer that's LIVE NOW

its a good deal for 150. Normally in this price range u see AX 3000 stuff and while this one is not triband and im pretty sure its 2 x 2 mu-mimo just like your typical AX3000 router, it probably has a better cpu and memory for the higher throughput so...worth it provided that u dont have a very specific need like the ones i mentioned.
Those are my thoughts on the paper specs for the price. As far as realistic performance, without a review i agree its hard to say
