There other routers out there that offer better value IMO. I've used several Asus routers in the past with and without Merlin or Merlin forks and they're good but if you're a basic user with few requirements, then there are cheaper options that perform similar such as TP-Link, Netgear, etc. Just my opinion though.

Just ordered one for my folks... thanks OP! It came out to $62.59USD shipped to Alberta after shipping and import fees, which is about $80CAD.
My life improved when I separated routing and wifi access points.

I bought an EdgeRouter4 for routing and repurposed my old wifi routers as dumb wifi access points.

Highly recommended.

I've owned an EdgeRouter PoE-5, USG, Dream Machine, and now I'm onto a Dream Router. I used a UAP-AC-Pro with ERPoE-5 and USG. Funny enough, the Dream Machine and Dream Router gave me better wireless coverage and performance than the other setups. For some reason, the wireless strength of the UAP-AC-Pro is pretty weak. Others have experienced that same too.

Ubiquiti stuff is great and all, but it's not for everyone. For the average user that wants a cheap simple setup, something like the Netgear router is ideal. I know a lot of people that don't want to spend money on routers and such if they don't have to. They get by fine with band aid fixes.

Ok I want to upgrade my basic Rogers internet modem into either a good router or a mesh system but I really don't know much about these things. I have a couple spotty areas in my home which is why I was leaning towards mesh but would a good wifi 6 router take care of that by itself? It would be much cheaper to get a good router opposed to a good mesh system

That's not really correct. Caps age but not really like batteries. After all, a charge/discharge cycle is typically days to years in batteries and nanoseconds to fractions of a second for capacitors. The chemistry is totally different.

Different kinds of capacitors age differently. Most caps in routers are electrolytic.

A decade or so ago, a lot of electrolytic capacitors started dying. This was horrible for a number of reasons. If you see a board with swollen caps, you might find that this is the problem. It was a case of faulty industrial espionage https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague
