R1 V XR500

Recommended Posts

I have used both models for years now and after many different configurations and test i find that my R1 seems to perform better than my much more expensive Netgear XR500... Has anyone else come to the same conclusion? without doubt the XR500 out performs the R1 in many aspects especially wifi but over wire connections i feel that the R1 is achieving better bufferbloat and stable latency/ping.

i tried everything on my XR500 to achieve A+ ratings on dslreports with no luck, if anything it seemed to make everything worse. Don't know if the R1 uses different queue management algorithms or if its a firmware issue. 

will be interesting to see how the R1 performs with the new 3.0 firmware. I think the Mikrotik routerboard that the R1 uses is a very good router and maybe Netgear routers are not quite as well suited for the same tasks... 

Or is it all placebo and perception? 

hope they bring out the R2
