This is what we like to see simple effective packaging that gets to the point about the features, and doesn’t overwhelm you with useless information.
Again Western Digital has used simple and effective packaging. I can take the entire router out of the box without leftover pieces, the contents also pack back into the box effortlessly. This router arrived with no damage and was well secured inside the box to prevent movement while in shipment.
Wow this is the first home use router I’ve seen that has more than 5 LAN ports. With a whopping 7 Gigabit ports WD is definitely throwing down the gauntlet. Being a storage company it comes as no surprise that they are giving us two USB ports for external devices, But take notice, one of them is USB 2.0! You can see that WD has included an active fan for cooling this device. I am very happy to see this but I hope it isn’t too noisy. This is a sleek design, but in the past I have had issues with wireless routers that don’t have external antennas. This is the most common design with manufacturers however I always like the option to increase signal strength with externals.
