    Seems really expensive to me and IDK how you'd go about measuring it but for a gaming router with a focus on reducing lag i was expecting some benchmarks quantifying the latency of wired/wireless.

    Netduma have their own router that they sell for $239.99 but the picture on their website looks like Routerboard hardware that Mikrotik sell with their own RouterOS for under $100.

    Netduma clearly think DumaOS is worth some money... I'm not seeing it myself, it looks shiny but my bet is that it's just Linux with some suitable Kernel tuning options and a fancy web interface, nothing secret or amazing.

    I contacted smallnetbuilder.com about reviewing this Netgear XR500. They let me know that it is just a rebranded Netgear R7800 but with DumaOS. The Netgear R7800 is still listed as #1 (since 2015) on smallnetbuilder.com and is $100 US less, so I bought the Netgear R7800. I do not think the DumaOS is worth an extra $100 US. I hope this helps some people.
