Let me preface this comment with a comment:
I do not comment on woots. I saw this product and was instantly so enraged by my last year and a half with a Motorola Surf Board that I needed to put down my 2 cents.
I bought one of these (black one) from Best Buy with a warranty (due to previous router issues) the modem part worked fine, but as a wireless router, I had serious (serious!) issues. Connectivity drop-offs, having to reset the modem/router every few days, wireless issues upon issues…I finally caved and bought an all-new router for our apartment, because the wireless was so terrible.
My warranty replaced the first one, with a fresh unit, and the same issues persisted through two different apartments.
Buyer-beware if you’re going to use this as an all-encompassing solution for wireless at home.
A buddy did however pick up the more expensive version (that does 2.4ghz and 5ghz simultaneously) and has not had a single issue.
Tl;dr buy the expensive one, the cheap one no bueno.
