D-Link DIR-800 series (2017) vs Netgear Nighthawk X10 (R9000)

Analysis:

The D-Link DIR-878 was loved by reviewers at CNET, a highly trusted source that performs reliable in-depth testing. It did great in its "The 4 Best Gaming Routers of 2023" roundup where it was named its "Ranked 2 out of 4", which, in itself, makes it a product worth considering.

Moving on to the Netgear Nighthawk X10 (R9000): it was unable to reach the very top of any roundups from sources that conduct reliable and unbiased testing. Nonetheless, it still managed to impress reviewers from a number of such sites, like TechGearLab, PCmag, TechSpot, Techradar, PC Gamer, CNET, and MakeUseOf, enough for them to include them on those lists.

Finally, we also compared their review scores to the rest of their competition - the D-Link DIR-878 earned an average review score of 7.6 out of 10 points and the Netgear Nighthawk X10 (R9000) received an average of 8.3, compared to the 7.4 average of Wi-Fi Routers in general.
