Look dude, Don't waste your coin.  It is like on the BO2 search pref :

You can choose BEST, but unless everyone in the world chooses BEST, you will still get laggy games.  It is clear that device only works for games that other people's connections are not relevant (e.g. you are communicating with a server and getting information back). When you have to communicate with many people who also have to communicate back etc...

How is bandwidth prioritization on your network going to influence the (lack of) prioritization on theirs???

(think about that for a sec)

(OP) By using DMZ, if your network isn't doing anything else you are already effectively prioritising gaming traffic, sounds like a gimmick to me, it would work for a shared network resource (like a campus network) but in my situation I have one router and tend not to download torrents etc whilst playing, if anything, adding an extra device to your network would increase latency!       

(can't get rid of the italics )       

Don't waste your money, it's obvious that companies will read gaming forums and target their products at disgruntled players, if you do purchase one let us know how it goes ( although we already know the answer)

I did...

Don't waste your coin... you will be 100% disappointed (Do I have to make a youtube video for you to believe it?)

... god I can be such a douche

edit: also realize that you can make your home network more efficient (by this device or other means), but it will have ZERO effect on the other clients you are playing with, let alone the global internet packet distribution.

Just stop and think for a second. Seriously I am no longer trying to be a douche; I am trying to save you from making a very bad purchase.

I wouldn't buy anything from this guy. Stopped watching after he called Bandwidth speed. Also note that he completely screws up how informtation is passed from one player to the other. He left out the key part that there's a Host playing the middle man

So because somebody made a you tube video it has to be true?????

That must mean that all the videos telling us that aliens run the world, the illiminati are using mind control drugs in the water to control us and my personal favorite the ones about Elvis working as a short order cook in a Vegas casino must all be the truth..

Like RLBL said, i know where there is a bridge going cheap....

Some people on the forums understand how networks work, I don't need to try it to know my network ( or any network, it's my job)

If you do buy one, keep the receipt Fella

Happy Gaming
