Sick of blaming lag for your losses? Fret no more – the NETGEAR Nighthawk D7000 WiFi Modem Router has you covered.
Renowned for delivering high end performance, NETGEAR's Nighthawk range wouldn't look out of place fixed to the fuselage of a Northrop Grumman B-2 stealth bomber. The NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 VDSL/ADSL WiFi Modem Router (D7000) is the latest in this uniquely designed line, combining both modem and router in one neat package.
Built with gaming, streaming and mobile devices in mind, the Nighthawk D7000 WiFi Modem Router has a 1GHz dual core processor and, from what we've come to expect from the Nighthawk series, delivers extreme speed; ultimately, you will enjoy less lag and buffering.
The D7000 features advanced QoS (quality of service) to prioritise gaming and streaming traffic so other devices or activities on the network won’t slow you down. This means you can enjoy uninterrupted streaming on YouTube or Twitch with limited buffering. And with high-powered amplifiers and antennas, and beamforming+, you’ll eliminate any WiFi dead spots and have strong and reliable WiFi no matter where you connect in the home.
Regular online video game players will certainly notice the difference using the modem router. We extensively trialled the D7000 playing League of Legends and had minimal ping and no disconnections.
Running out of room on your drives, or just want to have a reliable backup? The solution is simple: just attach an external hard drive to enable quick, easy, convenient and secure storage.
The aforementioned breakneck speed is made possible by using the latest 802.11ac WiFi that can push between 600 and 1300 Mbps across the home network; that's mighty fast.
Four Gigabit Ethernet ports allow for hard-wired devices, while the two 3.0 USB ports (NETGEAR are currently the only company to offer this) allow content to be shared wirelessly with lightning speed throughout the network once a hard drive or USB flash drive are connected.
And for homes yet to receive the NBN or VDSL – a faster tech than standard ADSL but not yet as ubiquitous – users can rest assured that a further financial outlay is not necessary if the Nighthawk D7000 is purchased now; the versatile unit can connect to any current or future Internet service.
NETGEAR's contemporary products are known for ease of use and set-up, and this is certainly the case here; even the least technically-minded in the home can get it up and running with minimum fuss. The handy NETGEAR Genie App covers all bases with a personal dashboard to monitor, control and repair your home network anytime, anywhere.
With so much content streamed in modern households to a myriad of different devices all connected to the Internet, there is nothing more infuriating than constant buffering. For online gaming, lag is enough to evoke fury in even the most placid of players. The NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 VDSL/ADSL WiFi Modem Router (D7000) takes a huge stride to eradicate these problems.
If you're due to upgrade the modem router in the home and are looking for a future-proof product that will deliver high performance in even the largest homes, the D7000 could well be the answer. Game on!
