5 reasons we recommend the Netgear Nighthawk X4 Router

Disclaimer: I am a NETGEAR Ambassador and I received this product in exchange for my honest, unbiased opinion and review.

My husband has been in the computer IT world for the last 15 years.  He has see many different products come across his desk.  Some have worked and some he vows never to work with again.  When he heard of the Netgear Nighthawk X4 Smart WI-FI Router, he was interested in trying it out since he had never tried a Netgear product before.  From the moment my husband opened the box, he was thrilled with this product.  Here are 5 reasons we recommend the Nighthawk X4 Router from Netgear:

#1)  The Netgear Nighthawk X4 Router is plug & play ready!  From the moment you open open the box, the router is ready for you to use!  No hard-to-decipher set up, no long installation times.  Because each router comes with its own default wireless username and password, once you plug it in, and enter the information you have wi-fi at your fingertips!

#2)  Control everything on the router with the Netgear Genie program.  There is no need to spend hours looking in a manul to figure out how to retrieve information or change settings on your Nighthawk X4 Router.  With the Netgear Genie app, all the information is ready for you to view and change and  monitor.  You can also stream music or videos, diagnose & repair network issues, set up parental controls & more.

#3)  Guest Wi-Fi feature.  Netgear keeps you covered with a seperate secure guest network access.  Worried about what your friends might be using your Wi-Fi for or worried that they will attract virsues?  Give them access to the guest network and your home network is still secure.

#4)  Network Storage.  The Nighthawk X4 has twin USB ports and a eSATA port.

These provide speed and flexibility when you connect your external storage to your Nighthawk X4. Enjoy fast, wireless access to your high-capacity hard drives from anywhere.
