I have been operating the V2 for about three weeks now (Firmware version 2.0.26.124551). I've been able to "real-world" compare this router in my home with two other excellent dual band wireless routers: the Asus NT-R56U and the Apple Time Capsule, 3rd Generation. I give the V2 five stars because this router delivers the best consistent range and performance in my "heavy wireless device usage home" than any other router I have owned.

Pros:
Setup: Set up in minutes with the included setup disk--I chose to skip the disk and setup via the browser on my iMac. (Both approaches = 3-4 minutes)
Future Proof: Supports IPv6, dual band 5Ghz/2.4Ghz, supports up to 450 Mbps on the 2.4/5 Ghz band
Powerful: Range and throughput in my house exceeded both the Asus NT-R56U and the Apple Time Capsule 3rd Generation. E.g.

I usually don't write reviews but after seeing all the less than favorable posts on this one i had to butt in. This is by far the most robust, no-frills, non-tinkered with router you can use out of the box. Pretty flawless so far. I have 3 Gigabit ports occupied along with 4 WLAN clients. Not to forget a 1 TB passport Hard-disk attached to the router that acts as a media server.
I have always been a fan of DD-WRT firmware. I used the legendary Cisco-Linksys WRT54GL Wireless-G Broadband Router with DD-WRT firmware for over 3 years before I made the upgrade to E4200V2. After using this for about 10 days, I don't even think about not being able to load custom firmware on this one. We've had seamless streaming of High-Def Video, Local File Transfer, Printer sharing between our Windows 7 machines using the HomeGroup setup. I cannot stress this fact enough. Practically zero packet dropping.

Make sure to have separate SSID for the 5 GHZ and the 2.4 GHZ transmission. That way you can connect your high performance 5GHZ capable wireless clients to the correct SSID for maximum performance. You can use my setup as an example as depicted in the screenshot( [..] )

I'll probably give an update after 2 months of usage. Hoping it would be a non-event.

Update:

Sorry I promised a quicker update but here goes. the Router is still fantastic. Never had to RESET even once. The Device count gre to 15 at my place. The new firmware update gave us the ability to disable WPS.

This router is worth the cost. Initial setup is so easy. Once connected to internet, you can easily setup to 2.4ghz, 5 GHz and Guest with different user-id and passwords. The security setting is all done automatically and you can easily change it if you want. Make sure to go to admin tab on web to do firmware upgrade. Wireless speed is really fast. Try using the Knowledge base. It has detailed explanations for novice users also.

I decided to replace my Linksys WRT610N router (which was having dropouts, especially when streaming Netflix using my Roku box). I also wanted an improved range of coverage.

I first purchased the E4200V1. After purchasing I noticed there was a V2. So why not try it as well before making a final decision??? I bought one, and was able to try both routers, swapping them in and out, trying to decide which to keep.

I could not detect any difference between the two in terms of range of coverage, or transfer rate. However, for sure, both the V1 and V2 were noticably better in range and transfer rate when compared to my WRT610N.

The setup was unbelievably easier than any of the several routers I've owned in the past. It took no more than 5 minutes, and I was up and running... no problems... a relief indeed.

Both the V1 and V2 fixed my Netflix/Roku dropouts. I decided on keeping the V2 (though more expensive) because of it's added capabilities - a desire to future proof my network.

I have 3 computers, 2 iPhones, 1 iPad, a Roku, Apple TV, SlingBox, a WEB based Sony TV, and a few other internet connect devices... all hooked up and running seemlessly. I have zero problems. Linksys, you've earned my 2 thumbs up award.

I'm very happy with my E4200V2, and believe it to be one of my better technology purchases of late.
