During TxGv E4200V2 (new not refurb) was on sale for $89 at BestBuy but I returned it because I saw some bad reviews for it online where people suggested to buy EA4500 instead

For what it's worth, I've been using one of these for a year or so with no issues. I'm using both the G, the N, and the USB printer server successfully with 5 computer, 2 phones, a TiVo, 2 Xboxes, 2 3d's, and a Wii. I don't remember ever having to reset it.

Decided to get one. Cheapest new price is $125 new on Amazon and $119 used. Certified refurb from Cisco is good deal. 90 day warranty if that's important to you.

Is there 3rd-party firmware for this? How is the stock firmware?

no tomato or dd-wrt. It has the Marvell cpu Chipset. Sorry.

Do you know if I can connect a external HDD to it and use it as a TimeMachine backup drive?

What is total price?

That's going to depend on taxes and your location.
Some people won't pay tax and those that do will differ by state.
There is no shipping charge.

Ouch much different than the v1, and the loss of broadcom chip set makes this router a dud.

Routing Performance:

Routing performance for the E4200V2 using our standard test method and 2.0.26.124551 firmware (freshly updated) is summarized in Table 3. Even though the V2 uses a much more powerful processor and more memory than the original, routing speeds have been ratcheted down to the mid 250 Mbps range, as have maximum simultaneous sessions, to 8,192.

They also have e4200 version 1 in stock for the same price, if you preferring that. E4200

And Whole list of other refurb available

Which one is the best router to replace the trusted WRT54? Which one these newer routers that is reliable and robust as WRT54 but with faster speed?

Might be an issue for someone that actually had those kinds of speeds available. Most people with high speed internet are well below 100Mb service...
Notice that is throughput to the WAN (or internet) so it is not going to impact your performance.

Please stay away from the RE1000. I've deployed 3 of them at different sites, and have nothing but problems with all 3. They have to be rebooted consistently.

Whats with Marvell CPU chipset ?

He speaks the truth. I had to set one up at my home and the damn thing needs to be rebooted constantly multiple times for it to work.

price back to $75.99 AC - dead deal?
