Default Linksys WRT1900AC vs Netgear R7000 Nighthawk

Hey guys,

Whilst the Linksys WRT1900AC is a new kid on the block, I am very much on the fence between the tried and true Netgear R7000 Nighthawk, and the Linksys router.

Curious to see if anyone here could sway me one way or another?
Out of the box it appears that the Netgear would take this one, due to the feature set on current firmware and superior speeds at 2.4 Ghz.

But I did love the old Linksys routers and I can't go past that solid looking Linksys/Cisco build.
And they both have great speeds on their USB 3.0 port (which I will use).

What is the consensus around here?

Id look at a few different review's then make a choise. Thats what I did when upgrading from Dlink to Asus 66AC. Havent had a issue since. If members here have this router even better first hand impression's.
