The Best Wi-Fi Router in Europe 2017 has been Named


European Hardware Awards

During the recent 2017 European Hardware Awards, NETGEAR Nighthawk X10 has been named as the best router in 2017. I’ve actually reviewed (and using at the moment) the older generation NETGEAR Nighthawk X4S modem router and personally think that it’s the most awesome router I’ve ever had. I especially love the Dynamic QoS and its beefy specs, among other features.

The NETGEAR Nighthawk X10 AD7200 Smart Wi-Fi Router (R9000) debuted on the market on 19th of October 2016, and though almost a year has passed, it seems to still be considered as the best router we have for this year (the Nighthawk X6 took the award last year).

With a 1.7GHz Quad Core processor (which is the fastest process you can have in a home router at the moment), Quad-Stream Wave 2 Wi-Fi architecture, and 802.11ad Wi-Fi, the router supports up to 7.2Gbps wireless speed (800Mbps at 2.4GHz 802.11ac with 256 QAM support + 1733Mbps at 5GHz 802.11ac + 4600Mbps at 60GHz 802.11ad).

It also has MU-MIMO technology for simultaneous streaming which I’ve explained briefly in my X4S review post, and includes a whopping new 10Gigabit port for supporting a fiber connection.

With a Plex Media Server, you can have all your movie collections (among other media files and documents) accessible wireless from anywhere.
