Chris, Brierley Hill

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Fully compatible with DD-WRT

No external antennas; 5G coverage is not as strong as 2.4G - this can cause performance issues in some parts of the house when using 5G

Daniel, Leamington Spa

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Compact and slick design. High transfer rates - I achieved 48Mbytes/s with my MBP late 2013 (ac). Also, @30% of power output I managed to get steady connection at the furthest part of the house (unlike other WiFis I had). Feature packed for those who need router as well.
Bad points:
Couldn't achieve max throughput/connection (mac at 1.5m registered up to 580Mpbs). I admit that I tried it only @ 30% power output.

Paul,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Looks good, good interface, lots of features.
Bad points:
Range not quite as good as I'd have expected - not a huge improvement over my previous BT HomeHub 3.

Krzysztof, Hamilton

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
The 5GHz band works fine
Bad points:
2.4GHz does not work and it was tested with a huge range of firmware in different configs and with multiple different devices. A device at this price and such renown should work with no tweaks and this one did not work at all.
