It is working great so far, but for such a price tag you kinda expect that it does the job without any issue. And indeed, the setup was easy, everything worked like a charm for first try.
Since I have installed, I had nothing to do with it.
It has great signal strength and speed within our concrete flat and even on 5 GHz. Close to the router the wireless speed on 5 Ghz was around 500 Mbps while at the most far point of the flat it still managed to keep the 200 Mbps speed with my mobile phone.
The only "pain-point" I have that in order to benefit from the more advanced features as the Adaptive QoS, Traffic Analyzer and AiProtection, you have to accept that the router sends data to Trend Micro about the suspicious network activities, apps, etc.
All in all, I think that even with it's higher price tag it worth the money spent on it.
