This is true, and good for prospective buyers to consider the upgrade to ET8. I own both models, and have had zero problems in about 3 years with the RT AX92U.

A wired backhaul was not in the cards in our new house, and we've noticed that the WiFi 6 makes a difference in a 3000sq ft space. We had dead spots, upgraded to the ET8 and no deadspots using just two of the more recent ET8 and the Wifi 6 they afford. Now we use the AX92U as nodes in the mesh.

I can attest to these being fairly easy to set up, and the GUI on the backend is user-friendly enough that I'm able to do some cool things that would otherwise feel beyond my technical comfort zone. Both models were great investments, and it was nice to be able to still use the AX92U in my mesh even after I upgraded to ET8.
Got this a week or so ago, it's worked pretty great with our new gigabit fiber. Our house is about 2500 SQ feet so not too big, but the range is more than we really need - one would probably cover the whole house. Wired backhaul does really help, though apparently there is a way to turn the WiFi 6 into a non-dedicated backhaul so you could theoretically use it wirelessly (can't vouch for how well it'd work). Dong Knows Tech reviewed it really well and he mentions it there if you want to know more: https://dongknows.com/asus-rt-ax92u-review/

I think it's particularly worth it compared to TP Link and other models in a similar price range - ASUS includes their full security and parental control suite with the router, no subscription necessary (unlike TP Link). Seems like a really good mesh for a small to medium house, no complaints so far.

You'll only be able to get WiFi 6 if you use this in a wired backhaul environment otherwise it'll use the WiFi 6 for wireless backhaul with no way to change it. Top notch stuff though

Both devices have antennas - they fold out and in.

I paid $5 less than this for "open box - good" from amazon and feel like I got a steal. If you need a large home mesh and can run Ethernet backhaul, then you won't find a better product for this money. And the stock GUI (and phone app) are what keep me using ASUS routers.

Apples to oranges. As a single router solution RT86-U is still the more powerful option. But if you need to set up a mesh network then this is a no brainer. Especially if you can support wired backhaul.

I'm trying to buy a whole house mesh. upgrade my google nest. I have 1 .4 gig service but only 500 on them.

Why is the rt86-u a better option since it lack AX? I would by 3 of these and set them in mesh if truly better?
