It can be bought for less than £200 in Europe, around 50% the cost of a comparable router from Netgear (RAX200). My only concern is lack of English firmware, though I believe there is a global version of the router with English fw. Does anyone know if fw will come in English if i buy from Europe? This is where I'm thinking of buying it from (I'm in UK):

Here it is in flight configuration:

Ha ha even better you can use it to cook stuff

But on a serious note, I have ordered it from that Spanish retailer for GBP 195, I should have it next week. I will post feedback by comparing it to my Netgear RAX200 wrt performance.
Looks good on specs, but you may get few firmware updates only. The price is right, if it works as promised.
