The requirement to set this up via a phone/tablet app...I wonder if there will be a Chrome app to do this as well, that would make sense...is interesting. They must think that the user base predominately has a device for this.

Dynamically being able to switch wi-fi channels is a nice feature if you have devices using 2.4 GHz, which tends to be quite crowded. Pricy device, tho, and if it's gonna be $199 at Walmart.com, there will be considerable pressure to block anyone else undercutting the price. But this is a future-proofing, forward-looking router...altho that argues, why didn't they go a bit faster than AC1900?

I'm just hoping they release an advanced version of this router that does open source firmware. The hardware looks awesome, but can we please not wimp it out with dumbed-down interfaces?

I still prefer hooking my PC into an ethernet port, and the same goes for the NAS. Since this only has 1 port, it's a no-buy for me.
Just connect a switch to it and plug your PC and NAS into the switch.
