Summing up the results of today’s tests, I should say the TEW-633GR router is overall good, yet it proved to be inferior to its opponent, the DIR-655, in terms of speed. A strong aspect of the TEW-633GR is that it can support a large number of logical network connections simultaneously. Anyway, I guess it is the price factor that is going to be decisive in favor of the particular router model. The TEW-633GR looks preferable as it costs about 20% less than the DIR-655.
The functionality and design of the TEW-633GR are average (among top-end Draft N models, of course). It only stands out among the others with its exclusive StreamEngine technology.
I would characterize the TEW-633GR as a cheaper alternative to the D-Link DIR-655.
