3.0 out of 5 stars This is a R6300v1 versus a R6300v2, January 21, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NETGEAR Wireless Router - AC1750 Dual Band Gigabit (R6300) - Manufacturer Refurbished (Personal Computers)
It's a very good router, but it does not have the high speed USB 3.0 port on the router like the R6300v2. Also, it probably won't receive as much firmware development because there is a newer model. However, the price is right and the unit is good.

Any other difference between the two models? I ordered the V2 from another vendor, and received the V1. That other vendor is refusing to take it back.

I guess I can live without the USB 3.0. I understand that USB 2.0 has a transfer rate of 480 Mbits/sec, and most 7,200 rpm hard drives can transfer at 1,020 Mbits/sec. Am I correct to understand that data transfer with a hard drive plugged into the V1 will be roughly 1/2 what the V2 router would provide?

Brian Gouge says:
USB 2.0 effectively limits transfer rate to a maximum speed of around 35MB/sec. With USB 3.0, the speed of your media is far more likely to be the limiting factor. I have a 64GB Sandisk Extreme USB 3.0 that reads at over 170MB/sec. You would definitely feel those USB 2.0 transfer rates if you were copying large files across your network to the USB drive. I can't speak for this router's ability to utilize, or its performance of, the USB port for attached storage, but I wanted to address your question about USB 2.0 and 3.0

The v2's have double the RAM (256M), dual core processor, and they have USB3.
