I've been using it for about a month and it works pretty well and it worth every penny. It only has got two internal antennas but it enough to bring WifI in your house without need for a bridge. The AiCloud feature comes very handy and you can use it to access all shared files on you local network from anywhere in the world with your smartphone, tablet or any laptops, like Skydrive does. You can also synchronise your home cloud with GoogleDrive and Dropbox for more flexibility (but Skydrive support). The setup takes 30 seconds, and it has never been easier to set up a vpn. There are cheaper alternatives on the market right now, but if you're a fan of Asus, you won't be disappointed.
Look closer. There is a large blue 'Enlarge' button in the bottom right corner of each photo ;)
I must say I doubt it has 256GB of DDR3 RAM, more likely 256 MB ;)
i buy one and dont have various options like vpn, aicloud, firewall i try update and dont found nothing
While its not much of a bargain @ $119.99 it is a steal @ $89.99 where I bought it on sale @ NewEgg. Adding an AC Adapter to my laptop (nano sized from Edimark) it raised my file transfer speed from my server to 20 Mbs from 1-2 Mbs on the lousy 2.4 Mhz 802.11n built in WiFi. I can now reasonably transfer files from the laptop to the server instead of having to use a USB key.
