This is a pretty good wifi range extender. However, the biggest advantage of this is that you can convert it into a normal router by installing DD-WRT firmware, making it comparable to the Netgear R7000 which costs £100 more. Considering the CPU performance and wifi range, this is an absolute bargain.

Try comparing their specs and not the model number. This range extender is substantially more powerful in terms of both cpu speed and wifi range. The R6200 also doesn't support any open source firmware. To anybody interested in running open source firmware and having enough CPU power to run VPNs, anonymous proxies and various network services, then this is a cheap way to get started with a high end device.

Hard to check reviews on amazon as all models are bunched together.

I agree, for those willing to tinker and don't mind risk bricking the unit, it's worth a go.
But for people looking for a fast router who aren't, there are better options for about £15 more :
