The problems that most people have with current routers are due to obstructions, not lack of range. I doubt that this new router will do anything for people with older plaster wall homes or copper piping in between the router and the room that they want access in.

Looking at their specifications sheet, there appears to be no IEEE 802.11ac standard listed. By 2015 most wireless chipsets will have this standard. I guess Amped chose coverage over speed.

7500 square feet? I guess they're marketing to the "can't do math" crowd. That's only a 50 foot radius. Not even enough to do the Maximum PC "outdoors" benchmark.

I'm with you on this. There's nothing "Extreme" about a 50-foot radius coverage. With a pricetag pushing $200, I'd just as soon buy a couple of cheaper APs and bridge them together with Western Digital's power-line extenders.

That covers an area of about 26.4x26.4 meters (697m^2 = 7500ft^2). More than enough for a standard home (including the backyard).

It's somewhat equivalent to a 15m radius (so 30m diameter). Again, more than enough for a standard household+backyard+front yard.

Remember that walls and weather exist. It's 50 ft in optimal conditions.
