Fast routers are expensive and if you want one of the really fast AC1900 routers you can easily pay several hundred dollars but the Tenda AC1900 Dualband Gigabit router is only $69.99
Good: This router is fast. Its fast at any price but at the low price of $69.99 makes it’s speed that much sweeter. As an example of how fast it is I more that doubled my internet speeds on both the 2.4 and 5Ghz bands.
Good: The setup process is quick and easy. The setup process was so simple in fact I didn’t even think I was done. I thought either I had more to do or had missed a step but no the setup was just really that simple.
Good: Tenda has a great app for the mobile phone that lets you manage the setting of the router from your phone including allowing guest access, monitoring connected devices, blocking access of connected devices and maintaining parental controls.
Good: Includes a USB 3 port that can be used to plug in a hard drive and used for various purposes.
Good: A great adjustable antenna array that provides a strong signal throughout multiple rooms.
Good: It looks nice. Looks are not really all that important to many people when it comes to a router and its not even a consideration for me when I am buying one but for some people who have put a lot of effort into their decor the last thing they want is some hideous utilitarian looking box planted in their living room.
Bad: The router only has three usable ethernet ports. There are actually four ports but because one port on all routers this one included are always used to get the internet so that only leaves three usable ports.
Bad: Tenda is pretty much an unknown company to many and some of the big box stores like Best Buy may not carry their routers. I bought mine at my local Micro Center so you can get them in stores.
Conclusion: This is a great router and for the price there is no reason not to try the AC1900 first. If you are looking for the best router for Kodi or if you are a photographer/filmmaker and need fast stable upload speeds then give this router a try. If you are planning on using this as a home router this is a great solution for your home networking needs. If you are a networking professional and need more robust features then you might want to look for a different router but for 99% of us the Tenda AC1900 is everything we need and more.
