ARCH C7 or SURFboard SB6183

I just received my SURFboard, installation is in a few days and THEN Amazon puts on sale the C7.

My first package was SB6183 and the AC1900 Router for about $250

I can get this new offered package of C7 and the AC1750 Router for $100 less! I do see I'd be giving up Beamforming, but not sure I'd be missing out on anything else.

Is the first package worth the extra $100?

Hope it's not too late, but no unless there is a specific reason for the C8/C9 it is not worth the $100. The SB + Archer C7 will be great for about 95% of households. I had the C7 as my main router for several years. I would still be using it if I didn't want to use alt firmware (Tomato).
