On a quest for the best Wi-Fi router? You're reading the right post.
But no, I won't be able to tell you exactly which one is the best, simply because there's no one router that works "best" for everyone. Frankly, we all have different needs, and in my estimation there are at least three types of users: advanced, general and novice. I will explain what (loosely) constitutes each type, then recommend two routers for each: one for those with deep pockets and the other for the budget-minded. I'll also list similar alternatives for each recommended router. Determine what type of user you are and you'll find the routers that best suits your needs.

Keep in mind that all of the routers mentioned in this post will work in all homes, it's just that they work best for the the category they're assigned to. For this reason, some of them actually can be used for more than one type of user. Also, I have personally used all of these routers for an extended period of time and they all deliver in terms of stability and speed.
This group wants to take full control of their home network destinies and has the know-how to do so. If you're fairly comfortable with networking or have a strong interest in learning more, this is the group for you. Hardcore gamers as well should consider an advanced-user router, as many online games require you to get into the nitty gritty of your router's settings to minimize your lag. This is the category I consider myself a part of.
These routers have extensive yet well-organized web interfaces and lots of features, way more than what the average home needs. You can use them to set up all kinds of services and manage multiple types of servers within your home network.
With that in mind, following are two best routers for advanced users.
Similar alternatives: Asus RT-AC87U, Asus RT-AC5300, Netgear R8500.
The bad: As an AC1900 Wi-Fi standard router, it's great for now but not future-proof in terms of Wi-Fi speed.
Similar alternatives: Asus RT-AC68U, Netgear R7000.
This is your category if you don't mind fiddling with a few router settings -- even if you'll have to glance at the instructions a few times --, and are comfortable with using a web browser. Mostly, however, you want to cut to the chase and get online. Once in awhile, though, you do want to check in with your router to change some parental controls or block a few unwanted clients.
Here are my picks for users that are technology-capable but nonchalant about networking. (Note that routers shown above for advanced users will also work for this group.)
Similar alternatives: Linksys EA8500, Asus RT-AC5300, Asus RT-AC88U, D-Link DIR-890L.
Similar alternatives: Asus RT-AC68U, Linksys WRT1900ACs, D-Link DIR-879.
If you've been searching for the "Routers for dummies" book (which, by the way, doesn't exist) you belong here. Nothing wrong with that -- not everybody can be an expert or have the time to learn everything. You just want something that's dead-easy to use. You don't want to think about it -- you just want to plug it in and binge-watch a new Netflix show.
Unfortunately, this level of convenience comes with both a financial cost (these routers are expensive) and possible risks in terms of privacy. In order for a router to be this easy to use, it needs to be managed by the manufacturer 24-7, and that means you ultimately never have full control over your home network.
That said, here are two routers that will make your life easy, if you can afford them.
Eero (Strictly speaking, this is a system that includes three Wi-Fi units.)
Similar alternative: None for now, though more will be available soon. The Arris SBR-AC3200P router and the Arris SBX-AC1200P extender will deliver similar Wi-Fi coverage for 0 less.
