Bristol GB
Superb performance, Great design (low footprint), excellent wi-fi coverage. Nice touches like the inclusion of USB 3.0 and the ability to switch the lights off at night. I have been managing 120Gb download speeds with my Nexus 7 (on 5Ghz wi-fi). 2.4Ghz connections are all much improved as well.
Expensive, Installation wasn't quite as straight-forward as led to believe. This router uses as the default gateway and the router it replaced was a D-Link 655 which uses This required me manually changing the ip addresses of devices like my network printer, NAS boxes and Sonos system. I am using my router with on a Virgin 120Gb with the 'super hub' in modem mode only.

Uxbridge GB
Great speed to my .11ac pci express card in desktop - getting 1.3Gb on 5Ghz channel.

The range on 2.4 is great - iPad now shows full signal strength on second floor of house. Router is located on ground floor.
Required firnware update to fix 2.4Ghz channel performance. Devices were connecting at 11Mb before - 150Mb after.

It is quite expensive, but you expect that for a somewhat enthusiast level device.

Obviously requires matching network capability on device end top reach the maximum throughout - but this is standard for all things, so I guess I can't hold this against it.
