With a refurbished product, you know that it has been evaluated and functions to the manufacturer's specifications. With a new version, the likelihood that there are minor flaws to the product's aesthetics is higher, however you may end up with a defective/DOA unit.

The E2000's throughput and performance outpace that of the E3000 (more expensive) and provide most of the same features. Even though this model isn't capable of multicasting 2.4GHz and 5GHz at the same time, isolating the unit to 802.11N clients only and connecting to a Gigabit desktop for network storage is blazingly fast. I have our cable modem plugged into the E2000, several newer "N" devices connected at 2.4GHz wirelessly, one desktop computer via Gigabit Ethernet and an Airport Extreme (b/g capable - looks like a UFO with a port from the E2000 plugged into its WAN port) in G-only mode for the older wireless clients in the house. I wanted to keep our WDS network alive with AirTunes on an Airport Express (b/g version) in our home theater, so I chose another wireless network name for the Airport devices.

Once I figured out that confusing setup, the execution was a breeze. People complain about the functions of this router being split between the Cisco setup CD/program and the root IP's web-based interface, but after the initial selections (router name and a few other items that won't ever need to be changed) with the CD there is really no need to re-run it. The main items unavailable on the web interface are Parental Controls (not an issue in my situation, at least) and Guest Access (in my opinion, not a great idea for home networking).

Bottom line: this product is fast and does what it is supposed to.

Firstly , As and other reviewer already pointed out, buying a refurbished makes a lot of sense, specially if they come with some warranty. In most cases, in my limited experience, you have to be really unlucky to get a refurbished product that is bad - specially when it comes to electronics.

Some useful buying advice :
1) The router supports 2.4 GHz as well as 5 GHz frequency settings, and both work fine.
2) The router works well with VPN. I use it regularly without any hangs or lagging issue.
3) I live in a 1000 sq feet apartment, and always see Signals Strength as "Excellent"
4) No overheating whatsoever, with heavy usage, and 5 devices connected.
5) Very stable, with no need for frequent resets.
5) Refurbished router come with a 90-days Cisco warranty. That combined with the excellent amazon return policy makes this a great deal.
6) Cisco Connect software that comes bundled with the router is very user friendly, and setup was a breeze.
7) If your cordless phone has interference issues with the router, solving the channel using advance settings solves the issue.
8) Work great with Netflix, Hulu and other streaming services. I stream using a roku box.

A great performer for sure.

I went through 3 routers trying to find one that would connect to my two laptops and stream Netflix to my Wii. I finally found it with this one. blazing fast wireless streaming.

The G side of the E2000 works almost as well as my old G router (Linksys WRT54G) in testing (low 20s Mbps). I was hoping that it would work better (newer, faster, etc.) but that was not to be in my case. It did seem as if E2000 bounced around more from 3 to 5 bars where the old WRT54G would be 4 but mostly 5 bars.

The 2.4Ghz N side got me low 60s Mbps (mid 70s to an AE1000). For comparison I get in the low 90Mbps on my wired 100Mbps connections. So this is a nice boost in speed without the need to drag wires throughout the house (which is frowned upon by my wife).

The 5Ghz N side got me up to the low 80s Mbps (again, to an AE1000 USB N refurbished adapter). I have to select if I want to use 5Ghz or 2.4Ghz with the E2000 and since I still have G and non 5Ghz N adapters, that pretty much means the 5Ghz is useless to me. However, 2.4Ghz N with 4 gigabit ports for under fifty dollars is a great deal and I can still get up to a rated 300Mbps (true is 80s Mbps).

A couple of things I learned while testing (your mileage may vary):
1. Changing from Mixed to Only-G or Only-N got me about 15% more throughput (from 2 to 7 additional Mbps).
2. Using Auto to select channels got me more stable signal strength and speed than manually selecting some channel (e.g. 1, 6, 9, 11, etc.). In other words, Auto did seem to pick a good channel (so don't just choose 9 because the cisco/linksys tech support said to).
3. If windows reports 270Mbps or 300Mbps it doesn't necessarily mean that the actual throughput will be faster. I couldn't get up t0 300Mbps to I contacted tech support and they had me select channel 9 (and a few other changes) and viola, it showed 300Mbps.

Beware. Their definition of "minor cosmetic blemishes" probably will differ greatly from yours. It does from mine. The top of the router I received is pretty beat up.

I gave it three stars because they do say it may be cosmetically blemished. But honestly, I've had routers I've used for a long time not look as bad as this thing. If you don't care at all about the physical appearance then this will probably be ok for you.
