Default Looking Into Getting A New Router

Hi all. As I may have mentioned a few times my family are looking to buy a new router as of the amount of devices being used on our current network. My younger siblings are receiving iPad's this year at school, We have 6 laptops, 2 desktops, 6 iPad's, 7 smartphones, a smart tv and Two wireless printers accessing our network. Now we have been looking at two routers this one Buy NETGEAR AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Router | Read Reviews | Dick Smith Online Shopping and this one Buy BELKIN AC1200 Dual Band Wireless Router | Read Reviews | Dick Smith Online Shopping, What do you think.

Both of those seem really expensive. Can you find an Asus RT-N66U out there? I have one, and I re-did my parent's network with 3 of them. They are a little cheaper than both of those and plenty strong.

For now I just want opinion on those two I listed, Would they be suitable for the amount of devices currently being used?

Yes they would, but so would a router at half the price.

You're over loaded. Plain and simple. More bandwidth first them open up the amount of users that can be on at one time in your routers.

I've had multiple and would never buy one again - they die way too quickly.

I never had much luck with dlink. Linksys and Netgear are my go to brands.
