Nice price, that's what I paid for the AC Lite last year.

I own one of these and the MSP I sysadmin for is a reseller, so I program/deploy tons of these along with some other Ubiquiti products(I do a metric crapload of wireless bridges).

They're solid, reliable, and look neat mounted on the ceiling. Once I set them up they just plain work and I've yet to have any fail. The one at my house is all but forgotten after I got it mounted and configured. Sometimes as I stumble down my hallway in the middle of the night its blue glow reminds me that it is there.

The downside is that you don't program this like a normal AP where you go to it's pre-set local IP to access its web GUI. You plug this AP in to your network, then install the UBNT Controller software on a computer in that same network, configure the controller, adopt the AP once the controller sees it, and then the AP is provisioned with the settings you applied to the controller. You don't actually configure anything on the AP itself, you're just configuring the controller.

Once you're done the controller software is no longer necessary unless you want to manage the AP. If you delete the controller software and 6 months later you want to manage the AP, you have to download/install the controller software again and adopt the AP hoping you remember its un/pw, otherwise you're factory resetting it and starting from scratch. To avoid this, after initial configuration/provisioning download a backup of the controller config and stash it in a safe place. You can import that in to a fresh controller install later down the road. Or do what I did and just keep the controller installed on the network somewhere.

You can also do this for an AP you don't plan to deploy in the network you're configuring it on. Heck, you can even just plug it directly in to the computer/laptop you have the UBNT Controller on to get it provisioned and then deploy to whatever network. My point is, it's not as easy/straight forward as other network devices that have a webGUI but there is plenty of support via google and the Ubiquiti forum if you need assistance(and please use that forum, don't PM me for assistance because I prefer to not work when I'm not in my office).

They are very similar.
Pro is a little bigger, but a little thinner.
5Ghz speed goes up to 1300Mbps on the Pro, but only 867Mbps on this model.
Pro is avail for $140 now from same seller.

If I get this, can I install a POE camera after it (supply power to an Amcrest Poe camera)? I believe it has two Ethernet ports on it like the pro but I haven't tried using the second Ethernet port.

The LR and Lite only have one Ethernet port. The Pro has 2. Not sure if the Pro does a pass through on PoE or not.

So is this better than a Netgear R8000 in terms of actual Wifi throughput and range? I know the Netgear has builtin GUI and is more expensive, but we have one of the AC Pros in the office which seem to have pretty good throughput.

Coming from an R7000 and an TMobile Asus converted to an Asus RT-AC68U, these do not have the range of those that I can tell. I could pick up WiFi almost 2 blocks from my house with the R7000 / Asus combo. I can pick up the LR / Pro combo from 75 feet or so outside...but, they are so much more stable. I tried firmware after firmware on the R7000 / Asus combo, changed settings, power, etc. and never could get great stability. Finally gave in and bought an Pro and LR and haven't heard a peep from anyone in my house since putting it in....and that's saying somthing, lol! Big Grin
