Why on earth would a router make any difference to VR gaming? The only way I can imagine is for using an app like VRidge on a mobile phone... which you'd only do if you coldn't afford a proper vr headset?

As for 4k streaming... I've not had any problems with a standard EE Brightbox and thats with a gaming pc running and 2 kids in the house too. I also run plex off of my home PC too so the network has pretty heavy usage.
Isn't the point of this site to get the cheapest price for a certain product. This is the Ferrari of the router world, and saying, ah yes but my Fiat Punto also works just the same. Isn't the same. Hot.
Get excellent Netgear Nighthawk X4S R7800. It's also wave 2 supported. X10 is overpriced and wifi ad is crap unless you are 1 feet away from router.
4k streaming over Wi-Fi I guess. Gigabit shouldn't have an issue on any router unless using SQM QOS (cake) or something. It runs a very new platform too so open-source software doesn't look promising any time soon.

It's a good router. Well supported. It's USB 3.0 bandwidth isn't very good. That's all really.

All a ask is if you can get this new for cheaper show me
I assume you have equivalent equipment on the receiving end? ie. it's no good having a 'wireless AD' router if your laptop, phone, TV and game machine don't also support that! (which AFAIK no current models do as default)
How does this work for Plex? I can't imagine it's any good for transcoding streams?
Is he an Autobot or Decepticon, just so I know where I stand if I happen across an allspark.

Not sure if you'd really want to put such load on a router.

Limited to 480p for video.

That said I have NEVER had Plex need to transcode video. Get audio transcoding from time to time but that's about it.

We're an Apple free household mind.

Exactly. It sounds like a nice feature, but in reality how useful is it, having Plex on an under-powered router?

No, there are automated price comparison sites that do that job far better.

HotUKDeals is to point out things that are unusually good value and generally share shopping tips.


This is a niche router designed to connect to other high end networking hardware, you're not going to be able to use many of the expensive features like the 'quad band' or 60Ghz bands on the normal wi-fi chip that comes in a phone or laptop (even high end ones).

It's for people who really hammer their home network with traffic between devices, if all you're using it for is sharing the internet then the extra capabilities over a cheaper router will be wasted.
I got one of these new from Amazon in June for just under £300 and it has been flawless. Before that I tried the R7800 and the D7800 and had a few issues on both of them. So for me the R9000 was well worth the extra.
