In our Storage Performance test, I use a SanDisk Extreme Pro 128GB USB 3.0 Flash drive formatted with the EXT4 filesystem. I mount the volume as a network drive and test with NAS Performance Test 1.7.
The ARRIS SBR-AC1900P was quite surprising in testing reaching 72 MB/s read in our 100M test and 67 MB/s read in the 1000M test. Write performance too was quite good for a router reaching 48 MB/s and 51 MB/s, respectively.
The ARRIS SBR-AC1900P is quite an interesting solution and even more so the RipCurrent aspect of it. The build quality of this unit is rather solid. As a matter of fact, I looked around and even tried to open it up, but ARRIS has sealed it up good. The RipCurrent technology is certainly a welcomed addition to any home network and worked flawlessly with very little effort.
The performance of this solution as a router was average. I was able to get near 850 Mbps out of the wired ports in both LAN to LAN and WAN to LAN while wireless performance on the 2.4GHz band topped out at 113 Mbps. With that, said 5GHz performance is some of the best I have seen with it topping out near 440 Mbps on the 80MHz connection. File performance of this solution ranks it in the top five of all solutions I have tested with a peak of 72 MB/s read and 51 MB/s write.
On the price front, the SURFboard SBR-AC1900P is advertising an MSRP of $199.99. This puts this solution at the top end of the AC1900 market with some solid competition from Linksys with the WRT and the R7000 from Netgear. Warranty, however, for the ARRIS SURFboard sits above the industry standard at two years.
