Ebay via Newegg has the Netgear Centria N900 Dual-Band Gigabit Wireless Router (model WNDR4700) for $54.99 shipped. That’s $195 off the original listing, $23 under Amazon’s current price, and the lowest price we have ever seen on this unit by $5. It features a 3.5-inch HD bay for storage expansion, mobile app control, USB 3.0 connectivity, and an SD card backup system. It has received a 3.8 out of 5 star rating from over 100 Amazon reviewers.
In its review, 9to5Mac felt that “things like faster USB 3 connections, SD Card access, easy hard drive upgrades, iOS app/printing, DLNA and Windows compatibility” make it a better choice than Apple’s Time Capsule for some users.
***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.
