Strangely enough, my free, supplied router works fine.
Why would I need to spend £159?

Different strokes for different folks - A lot of "free" routers are fine but equally with larger houses with multiple devices they can struggle.

Looks more like a dead insect rather than a spaceship. Lol

I've used the 'free' routers supplied by BT and Sky, neither gives you the control or additional features that third party router like Netgear or Asus do.

scorchio just on looks.

Take off the 1 in front and I would buy it to be the main router. Good product, bad price from Amazon

There's some users who do more than basic tasks while online and networked.
Not to mention the wider coverage and bandwidth provided.
These routers are for that small percentage.

Indeed, my Asus router provides a VPN server, Tor client, SMB server, ipcam, remote torrent client, DLNA server and loads of other features that bundled routers don't do. It also gives me much better wireless coverage and it's more stable with concurrent connections.

Bundled routers are fine for most people. If you haven't been looking for a better router then you probably don't need one.

Thought I'd resist the expensive routers for now and just coughed up £50 to upgrade my BT router from Home Hub v5 to v6 (Super Hub). All the reviews are saying its easily 40% faster with much better range and whilst there are fewer options to change and I've only been using it a couple of days, there feels like a big difference.

I have another router from the range and what it does over what I got free from Virgin is reliable connections with all my devices.

My kids are always gaming on their ipads and then we have the smart TV, security cams, thermostat, wiiu etc and I never get any drop outs or lack of wifi. Whereas previously I would always have lock outs and poor wifi.

I also love the parental controls which I find very useful for my children. The best bit is that I can also add in a schedule to switch off the wifi signal!!! So no late night online gaming from the kids but this doesn't disrupt the hard wired connections in the house.

I love it...Heat

One person's fine, is another's inadequate, notwithstanding people do very different things on a network, so sure, for you this would be unnecessary, but lots of people simply dont want to have to make do with the standard kit isp's provide, (lack of) speed and/or reliability that some users expose by their hardware usage can be a real pita.

I suppose so.
I just use mine for the basics. oO

This is expensive but cheapest its been. It is one of the best routers and new tech costs money. I have 37 devices in my home that connect to the internet(Phones, PCs,TVs,Consoles). My super router can handle my basic needs but Future routers will need tech like this.
