I am 12 years old and I live in Ireland, We don’t have WiFi as good as America but it is decent enough. In my area we have an issue is that if you watch or stream a very long video from YouTube or elsewhere off the Internet, other people can’t connect to the Internet without crashing. This or something similar could solve this issue I have. another excellent video Colin.

2nd crack at it actually the 1900AC was the previous model that came out about a year prior.

Michael Seneschal says:

This was a really good, organized, and well presented overview of this product. Thanks!

Objectorbit says:

This is a very good review. Thanks for creating it and upload it. 🙂

mugenbb6 says:

You should check out the routers/gateways from ubiquiti. They run on debian.

Wahey says:

Why aren’t Ethernet ports ever used for anything apart from internet data transmission? Are there too few connectors?

Evaldash says:

Man. I’m so jealous of your internet speeds. I’m just sitting here with 100 mbps, lol.

“What sticks out the most? The WiFi antennas.”

Well what else? xD

Bev in TX says:

On Synergy’s website, it says that it also has the following, which I think must be on one of the sides?

USB 3.0 x 1
SD card reader x 1 (SDXC, SDHC)

Thanks for the review, bud! Running something pricey, too. A Linksys WRT-3200ACM. Kinda waiting till ddwrt firmware is more compatible with it, but only time will tell.

metaleggman18 says:

I actually think about it fairly often lol. It’s part of why I always tell people to buy their own modems and routers.

Craparella Smørrebrød says:

Thanks for this informative review! Could you tell us, how’s the OpenVPN performance when you use it as a client (e.g. you use a VPN service so that your ISP cannot sell all your data). Can you hit 1Gbit/s over OpenVPN? Thanks!

Katie Carnohan says:

I didn’t think I’d be excited to see a router review, but since subscribing to your channel I’ve been surprised by how many uploads have pleased me to be notified about :3

MarkSill says:

Can I have your Internet please?

Erik Mojica says:

I don’t understand why ISPs don’t offer quality routers and modems like ones from ubiquiti or synology. They’d rather go through the headache of equipment failures from cheap linksys or netgear routers. Or cheap all in one solutions.
Maybe that could be a topic for one of your podcasts.
Great review and that white and green/yellow Vita in your intro is awesome looking!

Jared Young says:

Actually just ordered one yesterday. All the reviews have been glowing online, and my own experience with a Synology NAS made me trust them. One thing I find great about the NAS, and I hope it continues on the routers, is that older hardware(my NAS is about 6 years since production) continue to get all the latest updates. I want a router that is up to date as well, and this company seems to be willing to make that happen.
