Buffalo Airstation and Netgear R6300 not Wi-Fi Certified??

I am looking into wireless routers, and I am looking at these two 11ac routers:

Buffalo Technology AirStation AC1300 / N900 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router, IEEE 802.11ac - WZR-D1800H


NETGEAR R6300 Wireless AC Dual Band Gigabit WiFi Router IEEE 802.11ac


I started reading some reviews and they mentioned that these are not based on the 802.11ac spec, since it won???t be finalized till early next year. From what I could tell, they are not WiFi Certified.

I read that this could cause problems with devices that are released after the 11ac spec is finalized, so I am thinking of waiting, or getting a 11n router.

Can anyone tell more about this issue?

Should I only buy a 802.11ac router that has WiFi Certification?
