I usually like Netgear, but in this case they have taken misleading marketing to a new level.
They advertise it as a 4-stream router, but they are adding two 2.4 GHz streams and two 5 GHz streams together to get four. Streams don't work that way.

The TP-Link at least seems to be a legit 3 stream router, with both 2.4 and 5 GHz radios having 3x3 MIMO.
