This deal has been on here before, but it's been down awhile and is now back online at Linksys' official website. AC3200 and penta-core processing. $65 with FS to the US.

Note: The more powerful WRT3200ACM often drops to $100 FS on the site, so watch it daily.

Is a router like this overkill if I don't game? (I'm using an old Trendnet router and have a 6Mb/down DSL connection.)

Iffy reviews and no support for openwrt or dd-wrt firmwares. I'm guessing there are better options for the price - or there will be soon with Black Friday approaching.

Even if your not gaming you can take advantage of the newer technology. The advantages being able to get better coverage of your home. The other advantages being able to host multiple devices and having everyone do their own thing, like streaming music and video without affecting others experience. That is also dependent on your internet connection off course, unless your doing all in network streaming then your fine.

AC3200 for this price is hard to beat right now, I am not a huge Linksys fan anymore but even my trigger finger is itchy at the price and 90 day warranty is usually enough time to put it through the grinder to see if it will last. Really tempted right now. currently using AC1750 setup so to almost double my speeds and 5ghz band experience pretty tempting.

Small net builder review if anyone is interested in tests and what not.

How does this compare to ASUS Wireless-AC1900 Dual-Band? I have this from T-Mobile but need to return it as I don't have T-Mobile any longer and need something to replace it with.

Also, if you sign up with Linksys mailing list, the'll give you a code for %15 off.

Would it be worth returning my refurb EA8500 from last week's deal to get this instead?

Did they actually tell you, you have to give it back to them or are you assuming you would since you are leaving their service? In most cases I dont think those were added to your account so I thought you could just keep them. As for it being better I would say yes, unless you use a lot of 2.4ghz devices. If you are using a lot of newer 5ghz devices than this would be better.

What was the price difference, looks like the EA8500 uses newer technology and has better throughputs on both 2.4ghz and 5ghz so it looks like the winner between the two?

​This deal is $10 more, mostly concerned about 5Ghz speeds to a PC on a second floor

Yeah they said I needed to return it or else they'll charge me $99 for it. It is added to your account so as long as you have T-Mobile, they'll let you keep it but once you cancel, they'll ask for it back.

Amazon sells the same T-mobile router on amazon for $70 so I am not going to pay $99 for their router.
