Verdict

The price for the Belkin N1 Vision - Rs 11,699 - is much higher than mainstream home routers. Although this router will look nice in your living room, it’s definitely not something you can rely on for performance.

Belkin N1 Vision detailed review

  

Bringing Style To Routers

Belkin has entered the Indian market with one of their first products—the N1 Vision router. It might be a utility, but Belkin has managed to make it look like a lifestyle product.

The design is very good and stands out amongst all the routers you might come across today. Unlike most routers, the N1 stands vertically, but the stand is stable and has rubber padding at the base to stop it from sliding around. There is a small screen on the front , which shows data speeds of all the users connected to the router, both wired and wirelessly. There are buttons that can be used to navigate through the interface and the display can also be used as a clock as well.

When it comes to performance, it works pretty well on the wired ports. We recorded speeds of 7.36 Mbps for a single large file. For random files, the speeds were around 6.92 Mbps. The wireless tests revealed the weakness of the N1 Vision. The wireless performance was pretty appalling—2Mbps is the best it could do over a distance of some 10 feet.

The software interface has all the features that a router firmware should have—Internet connectivity configuration, VPN, security, etc. The interface is more user-friendly than those on most well known routers. One thing you notice is the long waiting period for the router to restart every time you change a setting.

The price for the Belkin N1 Vision—Rs 11,699—is much higher than mainstream home routers. Although this router will look nice in your living room, it’s definitely not something you can rely on for performance.
