I can't wait to see the reviews that will start coming in.

Things I'd like to see:

- Wireless performance vs its competition
- Functionality of its "automatic" traffic recognition and prioritization
- Usefulness of its UI

In general, anytime a product touts an ability to "automatically" classify and treat your traffic/devices for optimal performance - I have doubts.
I am not as interested in what it gets right, but more about what "mistakes" it will make in doing so.
If this router will display devices/traffic streams to the user via a comprehensive UI - then at least we can see what it is doing "in action".
If it can do that - and the user can be satisfied that certain devices are given the priority (we) want it to have - then this will be a winner.

You'll need to determine weather or not if you can be content with the 4500 or will need to upgrade sir  ;).

Think you need to re-view the video on what the core of what D-Link is doing with this router sir.
