I could get a small Cisco business router and an access point for about $350 and it would probably be more durable and reliable than any of these consumer devices. The real issue I'm having is finding good parental controls. I have tweens with iPads, phones, laptops, Alexas, Roku, Nintendos, Play Stations, and who knows what else. I need a way to manage time on all these devices. I have a Disney Circle device and it works well but it has one major flaw. It's uses ARP spoofing to work. That's traditionally a tool a hacker would use in a public place to steal passwords and credit card info. So, web browsers are getting better at detecting it and it causes all kinds of issues. Getting a router with Circle built in should work better. That pretty much limits me to these Trendnets. R7000 R7000P R8000 X6 R8000P X6S Orbi RBK50 None of these are an upgrade over my Asus AC68u that I've had for 5 years. To some extent the Orbi Mesh is a bit of an upgrade but it's hard to get an apples to apples comparison to say an X6. The X6S is the newer version of the X6 but it seems like it might get worse performance. Same with the R7000P. Newer, but maybe not better.
