Default Buying a New Wireless Router

Im currently in the market for a new wireless router and I've narrowed it down to two choices:

Asus AC68U
http://www.amazon.com/RT-AC68U-Wirel...less+ac+router

Netgear R7000
http://www.amazon.com/NETGEAR-Nighth...pr_product_top

Problem is that I cant seem to make a decision. They both have great reviews both by customers and professional reviewers. And for the most part they have identical features. So what are your guys thoughts on this? Which would you choose and why?

Thanks!

The ASUS one has a lot more reviews. Maybe go with that one.
