    i kinda like the looks as it disguises all of the separate antennae.

    but it really, really reminds me of Darth Vader's shuttle.

    In all seriousness, I do like the disguised antenna approach, maybe not the aesthetic but the idea at least. My only real problem with this is that they should have included at least one 10G port for a router in this price range.

    Daaaaaaaaaaamn ugly she is. And the price.

    Nah. I'll stick with my newly acquired Asus RT-AX88U. Cheaper and it'll do just what I need for years to come.

    Heck of an upgrade from my netgear WNDR4500!!! [​IMG]
    Man and this interface she has!!!!

    I remember USB Wi-Fi having fake antenna attached to it, so consumers assume it has better reach.
    Glad smartphones got rid of pointless antennas.

    Bought Wi-Fi router for $25... using it as Wi-Fi access point. Working just fine for 2 years now, the only thing it doesn't have is big fat antenna to make me feel pride and accomplishment sending those invisible packets in my room.

    Netgear tries to ruin multi-gig name of real mult-gig (2.5GbE, 5.0GbE, 10GbE)
    Still not interest in this router because it has 1gbps ports
