Great router, reaches everywhere in my 1800 square foot house with great signal. 9/6/2020 2:03:30 PM

Pros: Awesome dashboard
So many settings to fine tune
RGB is a plus!
Reduced my pings in half
Compatible with everything in my house, I bought it to replace a linksys router that didn't like my oculus quest and this router connected to it immediately and stays connected.

Cons: None yet

Overall Review: Would recommend

Love the game port! 7/16/2020 9:00:00 PM

Overall Review: Got this router to replace my net gear router. Love the features, especially the game port. Really like the mesh network capabilities so later down the line I have the option to expand my networks coverage.

So far so good. 6/17/2020 4:09:00 AM

Pros: -Exceptional performance to range at up to 35 feet. Getting high PHY rates/good 5 bar signal coverage in every room of my 1800 SQFT home.
-Great GUI software, though it has a few bugs with latest firmware.
-Free Antivirus/Protection
-ARM A53 64 bit dual core for exceptional VPN performance.
-Great build quality.

Cons: -Range/performance after 35 feet has significant drop off. I recommend buying two of these in wired backhaul if you want to cover 3000+ square feet.
-160mhz mode only operates in 2x2 MIMO. Significant range drop off compared to a fully enabled 4x4 radio. Don't recommend using unless a future update allows 4x4 160mhz.
-Runs a little warm.
-Disabling RGB also disables radio indicators which is kinda silly. Not sure how long the RGB will last when running 24/7. LED's might die.
-Only AC.. though Current 4x4 AX radios are honestly overpriced and don't offer much benefit in 2020.
-Auto channel selection is buggy. CH157 (Auto) on my device has very slow speeds.. Manual 161 fixes this.

Overall Review: Quite happy so far. I cant comment on longevity since this model is based on the AC86U and they're known to be hit or miss.. but my initial impressions are good. The rest is on ASUS to fulfill the warranty if I have any troubles later on.

The GT-AC2900 is basically an AC86U on steroids to put it in simplest terms. Uses last generation "high end" broadcom radios which seem to perform okay, but I'd like to see more Qualcomm solutions out of ASUS in the future.

I bought this model because its one of the best AC performers on the market (AC86U) and 100% performs better than the AX58U/AX3000 at my desired range. Getting much better speeds with this unit via AX200 client.

Skip the AX hype unless youre buying a high end 4x4 design.

Works great if you want to give up your privacy 5/20/2020 3:58:17 AM

Pros: Works great, nice interface.. cool RGB

Cons: If you withdraw from Trend Micro's privacy policy, it pretty much turns into an older ASUS router with pretty lights. All the cool features require you to give up your privacy to Trend Micro.

Overall Review: Great if you don't care about privacy. Recommend a "normal" ASUS router.

Awesome router 5/13/2020 7:30:03 PM

Pros: Rgb aura sync works. Great coverage (for my home atleast) speeds definitely deliver to all my devices

Cons: Alot of options and tweaks in settings. Not friendly on the wallet.

Overall Review: Fantastic router overall, just wish I could understand all the functions that this comes with but that is just me and have not had a chance to fully explore all the many options it has but definitely wish there was some tool tips to explain the functions.

GT-AC2900 5/2/2020 2:26:26 PM

Pros: Very Fast

Cons: Wireless instability (even to a printer 5-6 ft away)
Wireless devices showing on Network Map as wired devices
Slow communication between wired devices, suspect due to issue #2

Overall Review: Was impressed with the router out of the box but have had problems since. It drops wireless clients and won't allow them to reconnect with out disabling the wireless network or rebooting which worked until today. Now that doesn't work. It's also showing wireless devices connected to wired interfaces on the Network Map. I am having issues with wired devices as well which I suspect is due to it thinking there are devices connected that aren't. Tried factory reset with no change in behavior. Major disappointment. Hopefully I got the one bad one but I need a very stable and reliable router and will be going back to my usual brand.

Good WIFI router but... 3/17/2020 3:04:09 PM

Pros: Wide array of options for a broad array of users.
LED lights are always a cool option.
AI Protection as well as MAC masking.
VPN set up available.

Cons: Advanced settings are not for the beginners at all.
Very temperamental.
Will require some time to set up.

Overall Review: once I was able to self teach its operations and functions this is a very nice router. It offers a lot of options for the advanced users and seems to have great protection options for its users. overall i wish there was more instructions on how to use it but once you you tube it a bit you will find this ends up being a great purchase option.

Great Looking, High Performance Router 2/8/2020 3:04:43 PM

Pros: -Custom RGB lighting.
-Great GUI and software controls
-Fast wireless and wired speeds

Cons: -Only four LAN ports

Overall Review: I purchased this router because it was recommended for Geforce Now services. I love the look and it performs exceptionally well. The GUI that gives you control of the router has every tool you could imagine. This is a great router and looks great with my other ROG products I own. Recommend for sure
