Amazon has the NETGEAR Nighthawk X6 Wi-Fi Router on sale today, bringing it down to just $149. That's good for around $60 off of its regular price, and also brings it back down to its all-time lowest price. That's definitely a good thing for those that are in need of a new router right now.
The NETGEAR Nighthawk X6 is a great router for gamers out there. This one is able to provide better range than most routers that are cheaper than this one, and that's due to the various antennas it has. Now this is not the best looking router out there, but it is one of the better performing ones, and that's what everyone is looking for these days, anyways. It sports Tri-band MU-MIMO, which means you're going to get fast speeds as well. In fact, NETGEAR says you'll be able to get around 3Gbps on this one. Although that all depends on the speed that you get from your ISP anyways. And since very few ISP's allow for 1Gbps, it's unlikely that you'll hit the 3Gbps cap on this router. There is also a 1.8GHz dual-core processor inside, which is going to allow for lag-free gaming on this router, and that's definitely important. If you're a gamer, this is the router to pick up for sure.
