Synology RT2600AC review: A beast disguised as a router

When Synology approached us with an offer to review a new product, I was thrilled. The company is well-known for its NAS (Network Attached Storage) machines, but the item in question turned out to be a router. Now, I know what you’re thinking: a router review from Android Police? As some of you may well know, we do not exclusively handle Android-specific products like phones, tablets, etc. Sometimes, we like to provide all of you with our opinions on other accessories and the like to help improve your experience with your Android devices. Get it?A router is a pretty crucial thing to have in your home, especially for your phone (unless you have unlimited data, but still). But there’s a lot more involved than simply picking the cheapest or most expensive one — I mean, you have speeds, frequencies, features, firmware, range, and security to consider. Luckily, the RT2600AC by Synology provides some of the best performance in all of those categories without being needlessly expensive.For lack of a better way to say it, this is one hell of a beast. But I don’t want to spoil one of the few router reviews to be featured on Android Police, so let’s dive in.
