Yes, the 10/100 ethernet may bottleneck an 802.11ac client with a good signal.

no gigabit, no limited USB and likely no open-source firmware so it 's an entry level router but the price is still right

I assume one of the reasons is that the ports are 10/100M not gigabit

Does not having gigabit matter if the fastest internet service I can get is below 100mbs? And it looks like it has one USB port but the description says it only accepts drives up to 250 GB in size. Also, isn't wireless ac backwards compatible with wireless n devices?

correct, the gigabit is not a big deal, since most folks have gigabit switches for their LAN. AC itself works off 5Ghz band, AC routers are backwards w/ N-spec.
the D-Link Shareport as you mentioned doesn't support all devices as nicely as some, notably large drives/printers

Dual Band = 2.4GHz (b/g/n) + 5Ghz (a/n/ac)

D-Link Web specs says 10/100/1000 LAN, but the data sheet shows only 10/100

Agreed, even it's only 10/100, the price is still worth to try.
