[RT] Netgear R6400 AC1750 Router Review: An Upgrade To The R6300v2

Netgear's newly released R6400 AC1750 Smart Wi-Fi Router is the successor to the R6300v2 which was released back in 2013. The R6400 is a mid-range router that supports up to 450Mbps on the 2.4Ghz frequency band and up to 1300Mbps on the 5Ghz frequency band.

Netgear has decided to use the same exterior design as the popular R7000 AC1900 Nighthawk in the R6400 but they have left the internal hardware componenets relatively the same as the R6300v2. The Netgear R6400 AC1750 is not part of the Nighthawk series and simply replaces the R6300v2 at the same price but with better performance.

I'm still rocking the R6300v2 and see no reason to upgrade.

Picks up dust and finger prints like it's its job.

After 2 years new model with same amount ram, flash and same CPU, so what's new? Not even performance and not probably power consumption because of the same old hardware.

Lol... dust gather no matter what. The air moves and lift what ever there is small enough on the floor. I wonder if you have ever done some cleaning. This thing looks dusty so fast.

Dust magnet even in a clean room, fingerprints, scratches easily. Basically looks terrible after minutes in a real world scenario.
