    Ubiquiti Networks ER-X reviews

    ER-X EdgeRouter X is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This is a very powerful router, but inexpensive enough to use for residential situations. The router runs very cool, and it doesn't have a wireless chip to get in the way. I highly recommend updating the firmware, because it allows to visual traffic monitoring on your devices (i.e., see which computer is viewing Facebook for the majority of the time). There are few cons, though. It is difficult to configure, so it is definitely not for novices. Second, the webgui may not work with iOS devices, so unless you have the latest firmware, you won't be able configure it. The cons aren't dealbreakers for me, and but I expect many years of use out of it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Good Router I first heard about the ER-X on the Security Now podcast and then after purchasing it, heard a few more people talk about it on other infosec podcasts.� It was easy to setup, and I like the UI quite a bit.� I did have to look online and in the manual to determine how to accomplish a couple different tasks.� My only desire, and this is no fault of Ubiquiti, is that I would have purchased the 8 port router.� 5 is not enough for my home network.� I am not a power user per se but I did need to setup DCHP reservations and do some basic monitoring of network traffic both of which were easy to do.� I would definitely recommend this router to anyone looking for something more robust than your standard big box store router.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice router, price can't be beat for what it does! I'm using this router with a POE switch, and a couple of Unifi access points to fix the spotty coverage that I had in my house. Overall, it's a really nice router, but there are a few firmware bugs that need to be worked out, and also be aware that if you enable QoS or DPI that your throughput is going to be somewhere around 100mbps (from WAN to your LAN interfaces). This isn't an issue for me, as my internet connection is only 60mbps, but it's something to be aware of. A nice feature of this router is that there's actually a switching chip built in, so you can merge multiple ports into a switch and get full network speeds, which isn't the case for other EdgeRouters (or USGs for that matter). Overall, it's very nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly small and affordable workhorse This router is great. With the latest firmware there is a wizard that sets it up just like your typical all-in-one home router with a WAN port, 4 switched LAN ports, a stateful firewall that blocks all incoming connections, and a dhcp server for serving IPs to the lan. I run a Unifi UAP-AC-Lite off of the passthrough POE port with great success as well. I have a 100mbit down / 10mbit up cable connection and 1gbit lan devices. The router never leaves single digit cpu usage and my packet loss is zero. The edge router x is also tiny. It's literally the size of two smart phones stacked on top of each-other.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best investment I ever made. NOTE - this is not an easy to use product, it is not intended for the average computer user, some degree of technical know-how is required! I have a small but busy network in my house. I work out of the home, and there are 4 people online all day every day gaming, watching movies, and generally abusing the internet bandwidth. In recent years with broadband in my area breaking the 30 meg range, I started noticing something. I wasn't getting the speeds advertised to me by my cable company. At first, when the speeds were advertised at 40 or 50 megs, I just assumed I was getting it on a bad day when I came back with 35 meg speed tests (cable internet does fluctuate after all). But now a days I'm told I have a 90 meg line, and I still only get 35 megs max on a good day. I'm a programmer, but I'm not much a network guy, so I started going out and researching it a bit. Turns out despite having a gigabit switch, the biggest bottleneck will be the NAT throughput... how fast your router can redirect packets from the outside of your network to the ip addresses in your local subnet. Sure enough, all the consumer routers out there have really low throughput, or in the case of mine ALSO had the issue of overheating constantly which also hurt it. I continued researching, found this little guy (srsly, the size of this thing is amazing), and noted that users were getting several hundred megs NAT throughput, if not near gigabit speed through it. Well over my 90 meg line. So I snatched one up, as well as an Wi-Fi Access Point (decided separate the two) and sure enough my speeds went to what is advertised to me. My ONLY complaint is that the model I got (the ER-X) had a bug in the firmware version that made the 'port forwarding' wizard not work. You can still set it up using actual NAT destinations (which port-forwarding really is a wrapper around). It's just really annoying to stare at the 1 click port-forwarding wizard when you're writing you firewall rules.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! I have the big brother to this router and watched it's performance for months before purchasing this one. I found that memory was not a huge factor in performance. Typically, the cpu is where things got tight, so I decided to try the ER-X. I have actually put it in place of the EdgeRouter POE I have. I also like the fact that I simply restored that config on top of the ER-X and have been rocking along since. I have since purchased one for my daughter's new home and recommend this router to anyone looking to have reliable network routing at a very reasonable price.
    Date published: 2016-09-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing hardware for the price! Full fledged routing. Granted it will only forward 500mbps, but I challenge you to find another enterprise class router for even close to this price. None of them will forward any more traffic over the routed ports than the ER-X.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Nerdy home Router or Small Office My first router was the Linksys WRT54GL, a router that will forever live in infamy. It lasted me years and was only replaced due to not being able to keep up with faster Internet speeds now available. I decided to build my own router, running Linux to handle the higher speeds. This went well for a time, but was annoying that it had only 2 network jacks, and it was really overkill for power. I began a search for a lower powered PC, but options were slim. I had an Ubiquiti Access Point and was looking at devices for POE, and came across this. It had all the functionality I was looking for, had more ports, POE and was much lower powered than the Linux PC I had been running. This device has so many features, far beyond any of your typical home router. Combine this with one of there APs and you have an amazing home setup. Although not as easy to setup and configure as your typical home router, this is far superior and has a wizard that helps get it configured based on what you want it to do. If you want a router with all the bells and whistles and not your basic all in one wireless router, then this is likely the one for you.
