C5200? All I see is c5400 on the web. Is this a dud that was quickly replaced?

Costco had these on sale a while back, the box all said 5200 but the inside everything was 5400.

Here's a link to the product page on TP-Link:
http://www.tp-link.com/us/product...C5200.html

But it doesn't show up on their main page of routers:
http://www.tp-link.com/us/home-ne...fi-routers

Maybe it was a limited edition and / or a store-specific model?

Anything above 3200 is overkill for today.. the 5400+ is to future proof the wifi portion with local nas systems... 2.5 - 10gb Ethernet is a few years away

What I gathered from reading the older thread was that this was Costco specific model, everyone who bought it said when they unboxed it everything said it was 5400

Yeah that's helpful. Thanks. It looks like the 2.4ghz band on the 5400 model is 1000Mbps, whereas on this 5200 model it's 800Mmbps. Otherwise they seem the same.

Here's a helpful review [youtube.com].

actually anything above 2600 is overkill - since mu-mimo does not work as advertised.

best to wait till the 802.11aX routers come out in 2018 when mu-mimo finally works,

OR combine a beam forming router with an endpoint for wider multi device coverage.

Is the range comparable on a 2600 vs a 5200/5400?

Tp-link is garbage. I tested Asus ac2600 and netgear x4 Ac2600 both had much better range than tp link ac3200 and orbi ac3000.

Disappointing bandwidth on an AC 1900 ADAPTER? Hmm.. could be positioning
