Company wins top spot again from European Hardware Awards for best router in pan-European voting by 100-plus technology editors
SYDNEY, Australia — June 21, 2017 — For the second consecutive year, NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTGR), the leading provider of networking devices that power today’s smart home, has secured the top spot for routers in the 2017 European Hardware Awards. The Nighthawk X10 AD7200 Smart WiFi Router (R9000) was named Best Router in this annual competition to honour exceptional hardware sold in the European Union. Nighthawk X10 debuted on the market last spring as the industry’s first —and fastest— router for media streaming and instant backup.

The European Hardware Awards is created by the European Hardware Association (EHA). Votes were tallied from more than 100 experienced editors from EHA member publications representing the largest technology news and reviews sites in Europe: Hardware.Info (Benelux region), CowCotLand (France), Hardwareluxx (Germany), Hardware Upgrade (Italy), PurePC (Poland), Lab 501 (Romania), Geeknetic (Spain), SweClockers (Nordic countries) and KitGuru (United Kingdom).

Today’s video files are getting larger with 4K and VR video. Offloading from capture devices and moving these large files within a network often becomes a time-consuming and challenging task. The NETGEAR Nighthawk X10 Smart WiFi Router is powerful enough to move these files at unprecedented speed and provides easy access once the file is stored on the network. It offers ultra-smooth 4K streaming, even to remote devices, and is the industry’s first router to run Plex Media Server without the need for a computer.

Nighthawk X10 combines a powerful 1.7GHz Quad Core processor — the fastest processor in a home router — and Quad-Stream Wave 2 WiFi architecture plus next-generation high speed 802.11ad WiFi, so you can enjoy blazing-fast combined wireless speeds up to a furious 7.2Gbps*. The latest MU-MIMO technology supports simultaneous streaming, while 160MHz doubles WiFi speeds to mobile devices. Nighthawk X10 is also the industry’s first router designed for the home market that includes a 10Gigabit port for supporting a fiber connection.

“We are honoured to have a Nighthawk router selected as the Best Router in the European market two years in a row! Last year it was Nighthawk X6 and now Nighthawk X10,” said David Henry, senior vice president of Connected Home for NETGEAR. “We design all NETGEAR products not only to meet but to surpass the highest performance standards, and we strive to deliver the newest technology innovations. We know Nighthawk X10 to be the industry’s best, so it’s extremely rewarding to have it confirmed by technology experts in continent-wide voting.”
