Linksys WRT 1900AC is quite different from high-end routers offered previously by the electronics manufacturer. It is a highly powerful and delivers great performance to the user.

It has impressive network storage performance when hosting a storage gadget, which is equal to that shown by many high-profile dedicated NAS servers. As well, the router does have some minor shortcomings, which includes its costly price tag, together with lack of Wi-Fi network customization. The Web interface too is a bit unintuitive, though organized, mostly for first-time users. New WRT 1900AC from Linksys is worth investing in and should make for an excellent home router. Advanced users who are keen on utilizing its custom firmware plus other crucial features should benefit greatly from it as well. A revolutionary design has been used on this device.
