Good Dual band Router?

Just suggested them because i've already tested them myself.

 

The Netgear R6200 only does 300+867 MBit/s like for instance the Linksys EA6300. I can't however speak for the real world difference in performance.

So the Nvidia shield is coming out soon and it recommends a dual band router.

What are some good options for about $150 USD?

So far I have been looking at:

Netgear R6250-100NAS

Netgear R6200

ASUS Dual-Band Wireless-N 600

ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900

 

Im not sure what the advantage of the more expensive ones are and if I don't have to it would be nice to keep it under $100.

But willing to go to around $150 if there are some large advantages.

I would go with a router supporting AC like the Asus RT-AC66U or the Linksys EA6400 - 6700.

I am a novice when it comes to routers, what is AC?

The new standard following the N standard. It's basically just faster then N, you won't get any benefits from it right away, since you probably don't have any device support it, but you still can max out the N standard and new device will all have the AC standard soon. Many upper tier Z87 Mainboard for instance come with AC onboard already

Ah okay, I looked and the Netgear R6200 I listed is AC.

It is also cheaper then the two you referred me to.

Are the any benefits that justify me getting the more expensive ones you suggest?
