The Surfboard AC1750 is a strong entry into the wireless router market for Arris. As a starting point, the build quality of this router is solid, the plastics both look good and offer durability. While many of the solutions that come through the lab are show pieces, it's nice to see a router that is simplistic in its design and pairs well with existing modem solutions from Arris. The front panel of this router is slightly glossy, but the white coloring dulls it out, so you don't get the normal dust and dirt showing as much, and the LEDs are quite bright especially in a dim lit room.
The performance of this router was below average on the wired side, with both LAN and WAN showing throughput results in the 700 to 800 Mbps range. On the wireless side, things picked up a bit as the Arris produced 2.4GHz performance right in line with comparable AC1750 solutions tested in the past. 5GHz performance was top notch for AC1750, as this router peaked out at 374 Mbps on the 80MHz width. Multi-User performance showed the Surfboard to do quite well with device connections increasing starting at 187 Mbps with a single connection and topping out at 248 Mbps with four. 5GHz flipped those results as the Surfboard hit 374 Mbps one on connection and 248 Mbps on four.
The Web GUI for the Arris is one of the cleanest and more user-friendly solutions I have used. The menu system is made up of tabs across the top that make navigation simple while adding to this is how snappy this interface is. In the four weeks I used this router for my home network solution, I was quite happy with the stability of the router. I had no issues with the router dropping out or locking up and it was able to keep up with my media streaming habits.
The Arris Surfboard SBR-AC1750 carries an MSRP of $129.99 with a two-year warranty.
