Verdict

Now that routers have become commoditised, the Netgear XR500 takes the right approach towards differentiating itself with a more feature rich UI. Moreover, the XR500 uses Qualcomm Atheros chips instead of the cheaper MediaTek solutions. Right from the different design decisions on the PCB to the final product, the XR500 speaks of good build quality. To top it off, the device also has a really great UI thanks to their partnership with NetDuma in the form of DumaOS. The additional features that bring in geo-fencing, ip-filtering based on ping and a wide variety of QoS settings make the XR500 worthy of being called a gaming router. Netgear isn’t the first to come out with a gaming router but it’s certainly the first to do it the right way. What excites us now is to see how the competition will react to the XR500. Hopefully, it’ll herald a new range of wireless devices with more polished UI and not just flashy buzz-words. For the price of Rs.23,000 the Netgear XR500 isn’t exorbitantly priced. It should be noted that the router’s features are better left to enthusiasts to play with because the average gamer is simply not educated about the advanced networking features that the XR500 ships with. There are a few kinks though, and hopefully Netgear can come out with a hardware revision to resolve them and produce a product that will be talked of for years to come.
