I did a lot of research on wifi routers before buying this one. We have a lot of devices that need high speed reliable wifi connections and also a lot of smart home devices that I don't want on the same network as our computers. This router handles all of the devices without issue. It was really easy to setup a guest network to connect the smart home devices to. The companion app is very handy for making sure there are no unknown devices connected and temporarily turning off the connection for my step-daughter's nintendo switch when she's not supposed to be using it. I can also share the wifi password with friends and family that visit with a QR code rather than having to tell them my password. This also uses the new wifi 6 standard so it's future proof (for a little while at least). This isn't the cheapest router out there, but it's well worth the money, in my opinion.
