NETGEAR XR500 VS NETDUMA R1 | EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

Recommended Posts

Good video matey.

 

 

I had been tempted to buy the XR500 and have it shipped over via a forwarding site I have, but that is impulse buying so I shall sit on my hands and hold out til april as I already have a kick ass router doing all the wifi running into the R1.

Cheers for the vid fella!! It confirmed my initial thoughts of not bothering with the NetGear XR500. I have a netgear modem and an apple airport/time machine in bridge mode (for the wifi/extra switch sockets) all hooked up to the R1. All my gaming is done hard wired so investing in better wifi capability (if it is better than what I have) is pointless. I suppose the only question is one that cannot be answered until April, will the R1 hardware stand up to the demands of the new DumaOS?? I don't feel let down by NetDuma for partnering with Netgear, this was bound to happen down the line at some point, excellent products always get hoovered up by the big boys!! Lets see what April brings.

well, as the DumaOS is mainly designed for the R1 it will work fine as they will make sure it does. I have the R1 and all my household and wifi devices run through my synology 1900ac and my PS4 and PC direct to my R1.

 

 

I am hoping that netduma will release hardware of their own in the future. I aint even arsed about 5g on it but would like a router with more ram and a beefier processor.

Nice video Madman... and I'm holding onto my OG Duma as it's the original and with the original of most things you usually get some added bonuses that the other guys don't get.

 

Thus is just my opinion on the situation but everyone always has one or two tricks up their sleeve... ;)
