There are many ways to save money nowadays, such as only brushing your teeth every other day to save toothpaste or filling up your ketchup bottle with packets from McDonalds. However, there are some things you should never do to save money. A good example is shoes - something that are on your feet all day. In other words, buying uncomfortable shoes to save a few pennies is hardly a bargain.
This is also true with wireless routers. Buying bargain-priced routers results in poor performance and dropped connections. Nothing is worse than having to unplug your router to reset it each week.
Now however, NETGEAR releases a router that makes me consider upgrading - the Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Tri-Band WiFi Router.
"The new Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Tri-Band WiFi Router (R8000) is the first tri-band WiFi router available for purchase incorporating the powerful new Broadcom 5G WiFi XStream platform. With six high-performance antennas and three network bands, one 2.4GHz and two 5GHz, the Nighthawk X6 delivers the industry's fastest combined WiFi speed, up to 3.2 Gbps (1300+1300+600 Mbps). It balances the network load to ensure the best WiFi performance for each device and deliver the maximum wireless range available today", says NETGEAR.
The company further explains, "powered by a 1GHz dual core processor with three additional offload processors, Nighthawk X6 soars above the competition so you'll enjoy a blazing-fast WiFi experience using the latest 802.11ac wireless technology, such as the innovative 5G WiFi XStream technology from Broadcom. By optimizing speeds for all your WiFi devices, you'll be able to game on, stream away, and download mega-sized files without network lag from inside and outside your house, garage and yard".
As you can see, the Nighthawk X6 AC3200 is fully loaded with tonnes of great features, like Wi-Fi speeds of up to 3.2 Gbps. The Tri-band will intelligently connect devices to the fastest Wi-Fi band possible and increase overall network speed. VPN support also ensures secure remote access to your home network. These should make it useful for many years. It will be available starting July 11, but you can pre-order it at Amazon today.
