Pros:Price, performance, ease of configuration, deep feature set
Cons:More VPN tunnels and more gigabit ports would be nice.

Overall, this is a very capable router using its Linux-based engine to deliver a lots of features and capabilities not usually included in consumer-grade routers. Yet it's relatively easy to configure, providing the user has some knowledge of routing principles, due to its built-in documentation. I had three VPN tunnels to Netgear and DiamondMM VPN routers up in less than 20 minutes. However, if one has never setup VPN tunnels before, it can take days to get VPNs working on any router through trial and error. So far, the RVS4000 is very stable, and I'm using its QOS features to prevent my Vonage service from experiencing voice cut-outs during high traffic periods. At this time, it appears no other router can touch this one for the price if you need a few VPNs (5 router to router and 5 client to router), four gigabit ports and QOS.
