Here we go – a sleek, modern looking router called Synology RT1900ac. And not only a router, it serves multiple purposes, about which we’ll talk in just a minute. Yes, a design of a router probably isn’t your top-priority, as it will be stashed aside, maybe on a shelf or attached to a wall or a table. But when you do glance at it, it’s important not to be turned off by it, at least. That’s what this beauty offers, and we’re sure you’ll like it. Before we go any further, it’s important to realize this, and it’s about the company behind it.

Synology isn’t the type of company that creates routers, and this one is actually their first. That, of course, doesn’t mean it’s extremely bad, or a prototype, quite the contrary. That’s because the company has been doing a great job, making NAS (Network-Attached Storage) devices for a long time. Synology RT1900ac can and will serve as a NAS device as well, which is quite useful. Now, you might be wondering what exactly is a NAS. Imagine it as the main hub in a huge galaxy, where multiple spaceships dock and undock from it. That’s exactly what happens here, you can store files for everyone to access, stream media and more.

In case you decide to use it for those purposes, one of the main specs of Synology RT1900ac is the USB 3.0 port for the fastest speed possible. When used as a router it provides an excellent Wi-FI experience, but the range is quite short, and some of the top-speeds are … average. In case you’re looking for less of a multi-practical experience, and a strong, but a bit more expensive device, we’ve got a solution. Kindly take a look at D-Link EXO AC2600 MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Router, which is just a tiny bit more expensive.

Moving on, from what you could read in the name, it’s an AC1900 standard router. It comes equipped with some pretty impressive speeds, 1300Mbps on the 5GHz band while maintaining 600Mbps on a 2.4Ghz band. One of the best Synology RT1900ac features is the beast roaring inside along with USB 3.0 ports and an SD card slot. So, the processor that will take care of all those tasks is a Dual-core 1Ghz along with 256MB of DDR3 RAM. Those ports we mentioned can be used to connect an external hard drive or expand the storage.

The interface inside is easy-to-understand and very quickly modified. That’s all thanks to a Linux-based OS called Synology Router Manager or SRM for short. It’s a common firmware used for all of Synology NAS servers and perfected to the maximum. Even if you haven’t used it before, it’s very well-made. You’ll find it’s easily navigated, and it looks like a Windows or a Mac interface. In our testing and an analysis, it pulled ahead of many of its competitors, and we were pleased to see that. In case you’re looking for an upgraded, but a bit more expensive version, we’ve got your back. Synology has its own Synology RT2600ac router, which runs on an improved, 2600AC standard.

    A solid router for my house

    I'm not an expert when it comes to the routers, but this one does the job very well. I have a not-that-big house with 4 rooms and we all have a nice signal on our smartphones. My son bought this router, but i think that it's too expensive.
