  • Despite the novelty of 802.11ac support, the Belkin AC 1200 is a mundane, though decent, Wi-Fi router.


  • For early adopters looking for 11ac technology, even before the ratification of the latest 802.11 wireless standard, Belkin AC 1200 router offers good performance and robust hardware, although software issues, and little performance benefit in 11ac mode, dampen the full user experience.


  • Belkin's AC 1200 DB wireless router is lighter on specs, features, and performance than the rest of the field. The value of having two USB ports is severely diminished by the router's performance while hosting a storage device - it was excruciatingly slow when reading and writing files over the network. If you must rely on using router-hosted storage, you're better off with the Asus RT-AC66U, which is also a better wireless performer.


  • A router that is incredibly simple to set up and has outstanding wireless performance, but otherwise fairly basic features.


  • The Belkin N750 DB Wireless Dual-Band N+ router is arguably the most affordable 450Mbps true dual-band router on the market and, while far from perfect, it's likely to deliver more than what you pay for.


  • I can say that the N750 DB is one of the fastest routers I've seen to date for wired routing throughput. And it's also one of the best 2.4 GHz routers I've tested for mid to low signal strength performance.


  • Belkin's N750 is the third fastest dual-band router we've tested. The router's speed is counterbalanced by some software issues.
