1) QoS takes affect when your link is congested. Limiting your download speeds to allow for a greater bandwidth overhead in times of congestion, on a 150mbit link, is stupid.
2) Geo filtering at a hardware level isn’t needed to connect to lower latency games. Just about every game will do this in software. Filtering at a hardware level is way more likely to hinder than help you
3) Paying literally the hundreds of dollars more for a router with these features is laughable and for suckers
