I was given an opportunity to help evaluate the new Netgear R8000. I was coming from an Asus RT-N66U router running a Merlin build, firmware (v3.0.0.4.374.32) which was no slouch. Nonetheless, there were a couple of weak spots / problem issues within my 2-story house that I was hoping that this new top-of-the-line model from Netgear could overcome.

For those who don't want to read the rest of the results the quick summary is as follows:
A. 802.11ac works and depending on your device could be slightly to significantly faster than 802.11n
B. The range and reliability appears to be better than my old ASUS RT-N66U, not that I had any major issues with the ASUS router. The R8000 did improve some previously weak spots in certain areas of my 2-story house as well as allow me to walk further in my backyard, so yet again another improvement over my previous router.
C. It can stream bluray isos as long as your device cpu can handle it.
D. It's better than my old router so I am going to keep it and I would recommend it to friends and family.

The general rundown was as follows:

1. Setup - Quite intuitive and the router seems to try to intelligently detect which mode you should be in (router vs. access point) based on the presence or not of another router on the network. I was able to get the basic network connectivity and internet access within a matter of 2-3 minutes after initially plugging in the unit. I went to the admin/router update page and installed FW version v1.0.0.90_1.0.39.

2. Features - The additional new feature I cared about was 802.11ac but it had all the other bells and whistles such as DDNS, Port Fowarding and Port Triggering.

Wow. after YEARS of fighting weak Wifi (really, YEARS). Spending stupid amounts of money on repeaters and becoming a near expert on antenna tech, I had given up on my house. I had two bids in hand for a couple thousand bucks to hard wire in enough Cat 6 points to ensure high bandwidth to SEVERAL access points to supply signal to the different levels and locations I need Internet. (The House ain't that grand, just several levels and I work at home and move around a lot. It also has some mystery materials that seem resistant to signal.)

Today FedEx brought me salvation. The easiest, most bullet-proof set-up that I've ever used. 30 minutes start to finish to change out an old installation and be writing this review on hi band AC. Here's the best part. I am sittiing RIGHT NOW at the furtherest point in my house from the router with LESS THAN 5% (waaay less) fall off from HARDWIRED speed UP AND DOWN and I am using a lap top with no augmentation. (That means that I don't have a little USB dongle on my laptop to boast single.) Specifically, my download speed is over 55 and my upload is over 12 (Mbps). Now your area may have greater or less speed than mine but my AT THE PLUG speed on ethernet is less than 5% higher tested in realtime.

So, to tell you the truth. I have always hated Netgear. When a client put in one of their low end routers months ago, I groaned. Now, I'm here to say the R8000 (AKA AC3200) - JUST SCREAMS. And it is equally MAC friendly, has a nice iphone app and serves as an iTunes server.

I think it will be a while before anything beats this. Wow. (Again, from the time FedEx dropped the box until the period in this sentence hit was barely an hour - it's that easy.)

See older comments below

**Update - 8/8/14**
* Overall throughput has been great. We've played games (Minecraft is a favorite in our household and we just finished several rounds of the recent Destiny PS4 beta), streamed videos and surfed the Internet all CONCURRENTLY with NO hiccups.
* I happened upon the main reason for the "dead connection" issue that I (and others) are encountering. For WiFi - most Windows laptops default to "maximum performance" when plugged in and then shift to "moderate power savings" when on battery (you'll find these settings in Windows under Power Options > Change Plan Settings > Change Advanced Power Settings > Wireless Adapter Settings > Power Saving Mode). On one of our laptops - the Wi-Fi connection would go "dead" when I undocked, but would resume when I plugged the unit back in. This did not happen on the R7000 or WRT1900AC. The laptop used the Intel Wireless-AC 7260 card using Intel drivers 16 & 17 (latest). I have other devices using the same network card and drivers so it was something unique to this particular laptop. The workaround was to set the card for "maximum performance" while on battery and the laptop has been fine since. I passed the information on to my contact at Netgear. They once again recreated the issue on their side and informed me a fix will be in a forthcoming firmware!
* In the meantime Netgear provided me with an early beta of Firmware 102 which has the Sonos fix and improves wireless stability (it does not address the power save issue above though). Between Firmware 102 and the power save workaround - the R8000 has been running for many days straight WITHOUT issues. Firmware 102 is available on the NetGear support forums and I would expect it to be released more broadly shortly.
