wndr4700Newegg is offering the Netgear Centria WNDR4700 Wireless Router/NAS for $79.99 with free shipping when you enter coupon code EMCPHPD94 at checkout. That’s $120 below list, and $20 better than Amazon’s current price tag. It has a robust feature-set including a 3.5″ hard drive bay for easy storage expansion, iOS/Android apps to download and play media from any internet connection, USB 3.0, and a handy SD card backup tool.

9to5Mac reviewed it and concluded that it’s a probably a better purchase for most people than Apple’s pricey Time Capsule:

The Netgear Centria is a nice midrange wireless router/network attached-server option for Mac users and people in a mixed Mac/PC environment. The printing and setup complexity is easily outweighed by its much broader feature set. Things like faster USB 3 connections, SD Card access, easy hard drive upgrades, iOS app/printing, DLNA and Windows compatibility push it over the Time Capsule.

Please note this router’s built-in software cannot properly format drives greater than 2TB. To use a larger drive you must format it before installing it in this router. We recommend Western Digital Red drives for peak performance/stability in any NAS system.
