Asus ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 AX11000 Tri-Band 10 Gigabit WiFi Router, Aiprotection Lifetime Security by Trend Micro, Aimesh Compatible for Mesh WIFI System, Next-Gen Wifi 6, Wireless 802.11Ax, 4x Giga

Lowest price ever for this beast on amazon and bestbuy which are price matched at 333.99$

amazon: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/produ...AM10XP0JXS - > In stock Jan. 4, 2020 You can order now and it will ship when back in stock

bestbuy: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/asus...Id=6321917 ---Still available!

not sure how long it will last, but it's currently cheaper to buy brand new, than to get amazon's refurbished product. Previous deal was 4$ cheaper at newegg on slickdeals frontpage. And I personally much prefer dealing with amazon or bestbuy, so I am willing to pay 4 dollars for that convenience.

About 70$ more than the 5300, which is the previous iteration of it. Not terrible I don't think as the wifi 6 consumer products come to market now, basically new stuff will all be wifi 6, well newer semi-higher end stuff.

The similar netgear router is 548.99 currently on amazon with a 600$ retail price tag Frown

This is a great router - I have one. Before this, I had the Netgear rax80 and the rax120. This ax11000 keeps the IPV6 connection always active, even upon restarts. It also does WAN aggregation easily, and has three bands that all work well. As the OP stated, the current Netgear equivalent, the rax200, is $600 retail. I'm posting this just to let people know so that they don't have to go through the learning curve that I did. Just upgrade the firmware as soon as you get it. Then enjoy!

prices will just keep falling on these first draft AX/wifi6 routers when
consumers realize they offer no real benefits for their premium price.

even the quad core cpu is a joke as mostly the first 2 cores are used.

there are plenty of great 2,3,4 puck router:mesh systems you can buy
that are a far better way to spend a $300 budget on a AC/wifi5 system.

if i had $334 burning a hole in my pocket, i'd buy two asus ac2900's
and mesh one to the other - you can cover a mini mansion with that.

Yep most people don't need wifi 6, especially 1st run draft versions. Mesh systems on AC is a better way to spend money.

You mean there are "no real benefits" *for you* and *your* use-case.

The more devices you connect and the more data streams you get going, the more you're going to need a beefier cpu. But again, *your* use-case is probably too light to need this.

And maybe *for you* that would be true. However, you have no clue what other peoples needs are. Similarly, it's like you telling everyone they'd never need a Chevy Silverado 2500, and basing it on the fact that a Nissan Frontier does a great job towing a couple of jetskis and basic camping gear.

Good advice always starts with identifying the needs. Bad advice always starts with telling you what you'll never need without having any clue about your workload.

Hes not really wrong, wifi 6 unless you have gear that goes with it, performance wise increase is minimal when used with AC gear. Most tests on review sites have shown that to be true. The advance functionality of these routers hardly works as advertised. Right now these are a pass, wave 2 should be launching mid next year wait for that.

Now if they can make some models as nice looking as the Netgear ones... This looks hideous in my minimalism living room.

10 gigabit Ethernet/ internet WAN will be bigger than wifi 6.. I just bought a mobo with wifi 6.. absolutely no neighbors have wifi 6 signals yet. BTW, there have been similar prices for these.. check back in June to see where router prices are if you are not urgently needing to buy a router..
