The Pro is faster in the 5 GHz spectrum (it must have more MIMO antennae). It says 1300 Mbps @ 5GHz as opposed to 867 Mbps for the UAP-AC-LR The LR should have a longer range, but Ubiquiti seems squirrelly about information as to exactly how much longer.

Regarding throughput, fuzy is correct. The Pro is 3x3 MIMO while the LR is 2x2 MIMO. None of the two supports MU-MIMO (questionable benefits atm). The HD supports MU-MIMO btw. The 3x3 MIMO is mostly beneficial if you have 3x3 clients, e.g. AC-capable laptop with 3 antennas could potentially do 3 simultaneous streams for ~ 50% higher throughput. MIMO by the way can EITHER provide multi-stream transmission for higher throughput OR do beam-forming for improved range, but not both at the same time. Also I believe MIMO can't do 3 streams with 3 different clients at the same time. MU-MIMO can, but they have to be MU-MIMO capable clients.

The other benefit for the PRO is that it has pass-through port so you can daisy chain another device through the RJ45 output port and that device can also be PoE, but you'll need PoE+ router/injector (22W support) for that.
