I received the product below for the purpose of review. Thoughts and opinions are my own.
We are a family that can put a great deal of pressure on a wifi connection. We need streaming, gaming, connectivity to our mobile devices, and storage we can access through wifi. I blamed our slow connectivity on everything from the devices we used to our routers location in the house and even the weather on occasion. So when I was asked to review the Netgear Nighthawk X4 wireless router I thought to myself what a great opportunity to upgrade the wifi? I am so happy I did.
The first thing I noticed when I took it out of the box is the Nighthawk X4 has 4 antenna for awesome internet signal sending power. My old router only had 1. The Netgear router also has a really futuristic looking design with sleek lines and lots of blinking lights that show you just how much internet goodness is coursing through the router. Those antennas really help when hubs is gaming becoming powerful amplifiers for extreme wifi connectivity. That is so valuable because the game system can not be hardwired in its current location. Streaming videos on multiple devices is no problem thanks also to this Quad-Stream. The Nighthawk X4 also prioritizes Internet traffic so videos stream silky smooth. This super signal works on my mobile phone when I work in the yard or if I walk to the mailbox. Additionally if I need to access backed up files I can access them wireless because I have my hard drives connected to the router.
Netgears performance is better than any wireless router I have ever had and has single handedly diagnosed every issue the family has ever had with connecting to the internet. We used to get kicked off the network all the time. Streaming video would be pixelly or not at all and hubs would often be left out completely when trying to play video games online. Nighthawk X4 has passed every test we could throw at it. Blogging, Online gaming, video streaming on multiple phones and through the tv all at the same time. The Nighthawk X4 handles it no problem. I highly recommend it.
