Hi, 

 

     I have now R1, and as per forum admins here we will wait more time to get Duma OS. So, do you advice me to buy XR500 or keep working with R1.

The choice is yours. The R1 is still a great router for gaming as it is. The XR500 has more up-to-date hardware and the new dumaOS. If your R1 is serving you well at the moment then stick with that. I have both routers and still think they are both good.

I like it, I think it is a great router. Theres those that like it and those that do not, that is the same with many man things. Do you think the router is worth the money?.......that is for you alone to decide. There are those that like and dislike the R1.

Most of the complaints are by people missing certain small features such as ping assist or experiencing issues which are being investigated and fixed. 

 

The hardware is fantastic, great WiFi and has no issue running DumaOS. You get the best software with the best hardware. Equally DumaOS will come to the R1 so it's your decision.
