NETGEAR Nighthawk X4S – AC2600 Smart Wi-Fi Router Review

Most of us these days are looking for a good Wi-Fi provider to keep up our tech-fueled habits. Whether it be for our tablet, computer, or smart phone, there are a lot of options for us to choose from. So if you’re checking out the Netgear market, one device you can look into is the NETGEAR Nighthawk X4S -AC2600 Smart Wi-Fi Router. It might look a little like an alien weapon, but it also has a lot of tech packed into 1.85 pounds, and can pack a ton of data into your home network. It also works best for networks with multiple devices running at once.

Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO)

Most WiFi routers broadcast singularly to one device at a time, and have to switch back and forth between any more that are connected to the same network. This means your favorite tech has to wait their turn for data, and it slows down everything. But with MU-MIMO, data is sent directly to all of your WiFi-connected contraptions simultaneously. This means that your streaming, downloading, and gaming will work faster and with less buffering. This feature is perfect for multi-device households!

Dynamic QoS

If you are a multi-tasker, then this feature will be your best friend! QoS will prioritize your bandwith in regards to what applications and files you’re dealing with at the time. This means that the files that you are downloading won’t stop when you log onto your favorite online games, and all the processes that should be running will remain that way, instead of waiting for you to switch to an activity that eats less data before continuing.

Quad-Stream X4 Architecture

This is an example of the latest WiFi technology, and caters particularly to those who enjoy gaming and HD streaming! Within both the 5GHz band (1.73Gps speed) and the 2.4GHz band (800Gps speed) of WiFi, this provides four separate streams to smoothly cover every demand that your tech requires of it. It maximizes the speed that your data will travel at to your devices and its quality!

  • 4 Seperate Streams Within Each WiFi Band
  • Compact Build

So after looking at the variety of features that this product offers, and its high qualifications when it comes to speed, security, quality and adaptability, I would say that the NETGEAR Nighthawk X4S – AC2600 Smart Wi-Fi Router (R7800-100NAS) is going to be one of the best WiFi routers on the market! Because this is a new released product, more reviews will eventually flood the internet, but for now, there are no obvious flaws in it. There are only two things that I’d say to keep in mind while looking at this product. First, do you think you’ll need that much data? Because if you are on the low-key side of tech, it might be overqualified to suit your needs. And finally, be aware that your friends might think it’s the first sign of a coming alien invasion.
