Now that we’ve covered most current and high-in-demand wireless routers we can go one step further. How do the TP-Link Archer C8, the ASUS AC68U and the NETGEAR Nighthawk R7000 perform in comparison? Which one is (generally speaking) the best home router for you? This will be far more in-depth than the short overviews on each individual site and therefore cover that much more!
So, what does that mean?
First of all: all of these routers are great choices. But I think especially between these three you can draw a clear line depending on what you need.
The TP-LINK Archer C8 is your choice for private use. You don’t have too many devices and don’t plan on watching too many HD videos online or playing video games all night? This home router is the best choice in terms of price-performance-ratio for you.
Your kids like to play their games online, your partner keeps on watching high-quality videos and your left with no bandwidth at all with your tablet? Go for the ASUS AC68U. There’s actually a reason behind the fact that this one is (in my opinion) the best wireless router overall. If you have no extremely special needs but need more power and reliability than the TP-LINK Archer C8 can deliver go for this one without hesitation.
You just bought this fancy house with a lake on the backside and don’t want to miss anything going on online while riding your horse through your very own forest? Go for ten NETGEAR Nighthawk R7000s. No, in all seriousness, if you have to cover a lot of ground and want to connect many devices with the Internet the Nighthawk R7000 is a good choice. The newer model (which can be found here) is actually even better but also a bit more expensive.
