The product packaging carries the standard vibrant Netgear coloring scheme with an image of the router centered. To the right, Netgear has outlined the inclusion of a 1GHz dual-core processor.

Internally, all the materials were packed in egg crate.

Scope of delivery includes an Ethernet cable, three antennas, power adapter, and reading materials.

Looking over the router, the first noticeable feature is the overall size of the router and, of course, the stunning edgy design mimicking the USAF F-117 Nighthawk. The top of the router houses all of the LED indicators, which light up white when everything is normal and orange when something requires your attention.

Down below the front edge, Netgear has tucked away the USB 3.0 port.

The back of the router houses the three antenna ports, 4 LAN, and a single WAN port along with the power switch and USB 2.0 connection.

Internally, there isn't much to really get a look at. Everything is shielded and tucked away.

The backside of the PCB houses a large thermal pad covering what I assume to be the processor area. The base of the plastic housing has a metal plate acting as a heat sink.
