NETGEAR Nighthawk X4S Smart Wi-Fi Router (R7800) Review

You can always find many people complaining about their Wi-Fi’s poor performance but there are only a few who actually do something about it. Slow Wi-Fi routers take out all the fun from everything; nobody likes slow connections, especially when engrossed in playing online games. This time, we are presenting you with a NETGEAR Nighthawk X4S Review for all those who are ready to invest in some high-end routers featuring higher speeds and powerful coverage.



Most routers that you find in the market have are subtle and pleasing to the eyes, but not the Nighthawk X4S. It is like having an alien inside your room, thanks to its spaceship-like shape with jagged angles, 4 five-and-a-half inch long antennas, 5 network ports, 3 peripheral ports, a jet-black exterior, and neon lights that brighten up the whole room when you turn off the lights. If you think about it, it’s the most strategic design the manufacturers could have come up with since the Wi-Fi router’s target audience is hardcore gamers.


Powered by a dual-band gigabit platform featuring 1733 Mbps on a 5GHz band, and 800 Mbps on a band of 2.4GHz, this 1.7GHz dual-core processor sits next to 128 MB of flash memory and 512MB of DRAM. One of its most distinctive add-ons is that this version of the NETGEAR Wi-Fi router supports MIMO, a feature that boosts the speed of the other Wi-Fi clients in a crowded home without interfering with them. Also included are 5 Gigabit Ethernet ports (4 for LAN and 1 for WAN) and 2 USB 3.0 ports.


The starting price that the manufacturer has set is $260. So yes, it’s not cheap. But if you look at all the specifications, it does complete justice.


In the beginning, there was a lot of buzz about it not having an easy-to-setup web interface. However, that is not true; the setup is as easy as 1, 2, and 3. The genie app helps you throughout the configuration process, leaving very little for you to do on your own.

Final Verdict

It does stand out!

For users who are looking for the ultimate gaming experience, the Nighthawk X4S Review might seem fitting to suit all their needs. It has everything; from a killer design to a clean and user-friendly web interface, it delivers the fastest MU-MIMO performance with a 2.4GHz and 5GHz range performance.
