The reviews for Belkin wireless routers are mostly positive, as of 2015, and they mention the design, easy setup process and multiple USB ports as pros. However, some models, such as the N750, are criticized due to a lack of LED indicator lights and problems with attached USB devices.
The advanced and more expensive models, such as the AC1000DB and AC1200DB, receive good reviews on account of their extra functionality, including additional ports intended for computers and gaming consoles, and because they use software that allows users to stream various media from a USB device to smartphones and tablets. The reviews on technology websites, such as PC Magazine, also praise these devices due to the range at which they are able to maintain a solid connection, and the speeds they provide on the 5- and 2.4-gigahertz band throughputs.
The downside is that they feature a lower theoretical throughput in comparison to other wireless routers that use the 802.11ac standard, such as the Linksys WRT1900AC and Asus RT-AC68U models.
For the N600 model, the user reviews on Amazon.com are mostly divided into two camps, one of which praises its dual-band capabilities and the option it offers to enable additional wireless accounts for guests. The other camp criticizes the device due to its range, which cannot extend beyond 20 feet, and some of the problems it has with signal loss and constant resetting.
