USB3 on that router, nice. Hopefully the CPU is fast, and it still needs a good amount of fast ram too.

How is this different from Aicloud on other Asus wifi routers (i got a RT-N16 and it got:
Cloud Disk:
To create a cloud disk, you need to install a USB storage device into this router, then turn Cloud Disk ON. Use the router login account to log into the default cloud disk.
Smart Access:
Smart Access gets the settings of your Network Place such as user accounts, share folders, and others. This allows you to access your home network ( Network Place/Samba ) anytime, anywhere.
The WOL (Wake-On-LAN) feature lets you wake up a computer from any device in the network.
Smart Sync
To start smart sync, you need to sign up for an ASUS webstorage account, then turn Cloud Disk and Smart Sync. Ensure that you installed a USB storage device into this router.)
so what is new.

Does this thing force you to create a cloud account before allowing you to mess around with the settings like Belkin/Linksys?

mediocre, at best

what these guys are basically saying is that the router does a regular 1300mbps, like most, and they just add up the 2.4ghz band like it's going to matter when you're on the 5ghz one

also it's broadcom, so i'd stay away from this one. pretty bad 3rd party firmware support

cloud? ha, good one
