What are the benefits of expensive routers like this over the standard ones providers give you?

I too would like to Know this.

I got a cheap one from amazon. Netflix only connects to 1 out of 3 servers on my ps4

Main advantage of this router over BT Homehub etc. is the wireless performance. If you have fibre and use the standard provider router you will probably find performance drops massively if you are more that a few feet from the router. This will give you far better coverage and far better performance. It also has many bells and whistles missing from provider kit.

​Mainly better, faster wifi, longer distance, less blind spots, dual band so less interference, parental controls and Quality of Service - QOS. Parental controls let you give times and access to certain devices in the home, so kids can't use it before school and get chucked off at 8.00pm for instance. QOS allows you to priorities devices in the home, your laptop and the TV get priority of the bandwidth available. If I've not described something correctly or missed anything please chip in.

GenerL opinion seems to be this is good for WiFi but has a poor DSL modem. Given its age maybe worth avoiding even if discounted.

I have one, I'm not impressed - the first one was replaced. As the previous post good for wifi, not a great modem, I'm always losing connection.
