After years of research and testing, Netgear is ramping up its router technology. The result is Nighthawk routers, including the Netgear RAX40 and the awesome Netgear RAX200. What makes them so good, and what are the key differences between the two?
The RAX40 is something of an affordable gateway into Nighthawk router technology, but it is far from being a slouch. With combined Wi-Fi speeds up to 3 Gbps and an AX optimized dual-core processor which can run smart home automation, deliver ultra-smooth 4K UHD streaming, and help you enjoy online gaming, then it represents great value for money. The RAX40 is ideal for providing network coverage throughout medium size homes. All this at a price that fits well within the average family’s budget.
Onto the Netgear RAX200, which offers the fastest Wi-Fi speeds; a combined speed of up to 10.8 Gbps. With performance like that, it’s easy to see why the RAX200 is the perfect router for smart homes of today and tomorrow, which will rely on any number of devices. This tri-band Wi-Fi 6 router delivers plenty of bandwidth to all devices on a network, delivering optimal performance without congestion or dropouts. While streaming 4K/8k Ultra HD video and playing online games simultaneously on the same network, you’ll now be able to enjoy the experience without lag or interruptions. This router also supplies a 2.5 Gbps Multi-Gig Ethernet for LAN or internet connectivity.
The RAX40 is a great introduction to the Nighthawk range from Netgear, and the RAX200 takes you to a whole new level! Both routers prove that all the research and testing was well worth it.
