It was just 119.99 at amazon a few days and $110 after $10 rebate at newegg not long before that. This is still a great deal, but only if you need a router now. It was also on clearance at walmart for $99, but by now I'd assume they're all gone. I have a feeling a new router tech is breaking through and these will keep dropping in price.

Edit- For those that get taxed by amazon and not newegg, it's worth mentioning that this is available at newegg for the same price.

$60 at my Walmart. I bought 2 and left 2 or 3. I suppose I could have flipped them OK though.

Thanks, but how can you tell this is a RT-AC68U? It lists no specs or model #.

U is for the black unit. W is for the white unit. Source; own the white one. When updating firmware I wanted to make sure it was the correct model.

I got my Asus ac68u at Walmart last month it was on clearance for 99 and now I can finally gamestream wirelessly to my bedroom on my Nvidia Shield tablet! My previous linksys ea6200 wouldn't let me and the router is not far away in the living room.

+1 this crushes GameStream. Much better than my old RT-N56U. ac helps a lot with the 1080p@60 smoothness

The one that comes from T-Mobile is just a rebadge with their own firmware modification. You should put Tomato or DD-WRT on it anyway:

Thanks! I already bought it when it was on sale for $115. But for a second one for a wireless repeater upstairs, would you think that would work well, or better to invest in one of those compact dedicated wireless repeaters rather than a second router?

Upstairs coverage is always poor.

Or perhaps would a triband router for downstairs be better, so that one 5Ghz channel is used up for router-to-router communication only, and use the Asus upstairs?

Hmmm...
