    Agreed.

    I only have one ac device, so don't feel the need to upgrade from a N box just yet - but an integrated 2.5 drive would be one of the features that would make an upgrade more compelling.

    The optional stand looks good and I would like to try.

    Re: Synology Router RT1900ac

    Seems like a good first go at a router. I have been really impressed with DSM operating system on our giant NAS at work. As the review said, they definitely would be on to something if they slapped a drive (or 2 for some RAID 1 style data protection) in there.

    Re: Synology Router RT1900ac

    I disagree with "Not available with a built-in modem" being a bad point.

    The sort of people buy a router like this won't want a built-in modem. Not only do built-in modems tend to die much quicker than external ones, they also mean you have to replace your entire router when they do die.

    Also, the looks are considered something important now? It's not a fashion accessory: it's a router.

    Bad points for routers are:

    • Instability
    • Lack of options
    • Running hot
    • Wireless range / speed / stability
    etc.

    I did enjoy the article though, in spite of this. Just upgraded my router though to an Asus RT-AC68U, powered by Asuswrt-Merlin firmware. Very nice and stable router.
