Is the Netgear Nighthawk RAX50 worth it?

The Nighthawk is currently at a fairly good discount at my local store, it has good reviews, but when looking it up on Reddit, there were a few posts stating that the router is "unstable". I.e dropping out, needing to factory reset after each firmware upgrade and low speeds etc.

I currently have the Asus rt-ac66u, but I'm not happy with it. Installing merlin did not solve my issues either. I consistently need to restart it at least once a day due to internet dropouts

So is the nighthawk a good router, and is it stable would be my question?

You might get better feedback in the section where they discuss the RAX50:

 

While many questions about routers are generic and could be answered anywhere, some things need specialist knowledge.

You might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers specific to your device, in the appropriate section for your hardware. That's probably here:
