Costco has the Netgear Nighthawk X6 AC3000 R7900 Wireless Router for $50 off until 7/4/16. Pretty good deal for a fantastic wireless router. Main difference between this and the AC3200 R8000 is just a slight speed reduction on the 2.4Ghz band and only one USB 3.0 port.

That I don't know because I barely got it this week. Someone else might be of better service...

Just bought the Nighthawk AC1900 (R7000) at Target for the same price, but luckily I didn't open it yet. Looks like I'll be returning that one to pick up this AC3000, thanks!

Since I was a new customer of jet.com, I bought the much faster d-link AC3200 for $219.

The Netgear on two reviews talked about connection issues when outside of 20 feet. Now Netgear makes good product so I am sure they fixed that by now.

Note that this is the slower version of the X6 line...some reason they made two almost identical routers, left off a couple of ports and slowed it down for less dough.

I've heard the costco one is different as well when it comes to QoS, not sure how accurate that is though.

Edit: Never mind must have been a different model

The Costco version R7900 wouldn't get as frequent firmware updates as the regular one R8000.

http://www.netgear.com/support/pr...x#download (tons of updates and current version: 1.0.3.4)
http://www.netgear.com/support/pr...x#download (current version: 1.0.1.4)

May not worth the saving...

interesting point- I counter keep your updates and only sell the router after all the beta test bull crap is done. I noticed Costco did not carry this router day 1- but only sold it after the issues were resolved. I'd much rather have the ability to return it in 8 -12 months if it fails, blows up or starts to summon aliens with its 65 antennas. then the aliens will hog my WiFi and I'll have no recourse but to get my money back. updates- no thanks, just a product ready for prime time. BTW you'll never actually get the crazy throughput they claim, check smallnetbuilder
