Dunno if i'm loving them or not but seems they are trying to relive the glory days of Linksys home routers. Belkin bought the outfit from Cisco recently and now seem to think they can tug at some old hearts regarding the nostalgic look.
Obviously totally different beast on the inside.
The 2.4GHz and 5GHz simultaneous dual-band WRT1900AC is powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and 256MB of DDR3 RAM. To maximize its range it's got four removable and upgradeable antennas instead of the more common three, as well as USB 2, USB 3, and eSata ports for sharing access to external storage devices.
More importantly, though, is the fact that Linksys is working with the OpenWRT community to ensure that open source firmware is available for the $300 WRT1900AC as soon as it's available sometime this spring.
