I'm on a tight budget, and I found some used routers on amazon/ebay for ~30-40 USD. Two top choices that are on the DD-WRT compatible list are:
I like that they have USB 3.0 and Gbit lan, but mostly I like the price.
Apartment is small, maybe 600-700 sq ft, and I'll mostly have a TV, xbox, roku, 2-3 phones, 2 laptops connected.
Any opinions on these would be helpful, or suggestions of other better options also welcome.

Netgear ac1450 or r6300v2
They're the same hardware. The ac1450 is crippled on stock firmware. I've gotten these for under $20 shipped on eBay with a little hunting. They check all your boxes. Gigabit lan, ac1750, usb3, and price. A 120mm computer fan also fits nicely on the back if you want to mod it to run cooler.
