The R8500 is also a triband device. You could try reading a few reviews on them to see how they perform.

The R8500 has a stronger/faster CPU from Broadcom and has more RAM. The R6700v2 uses a weaker MediaTek one with lesser RAM

Thanks for your reply.  How about signal strength and security? 

 

Would you recomend the R8500?
