    The Nighthawk X6 isn't for everyone, but if you need to support lots of 802.11ac clients, this is the best choice—for now.

    Pros

    • Delivers very high throughput to multiple 802.11ac clients
    • Long list of networking and media-streaming features
    • High throughput to an attached USB 3.0 hard drive

    Cons

    • Not the fastest 802.11ac router when servicing just one client
    • Overkill for homes with less-demanding needs
    • Very expensive
