I got the AC1350 for 79.99$ two month ago.... Happy with but at this price point I would go with 1750
In my opinion, every intervention in RFD deserve a "thanks". Thanks given until now: more than 100,000

These are a good alternative to the Ubiquiti access points

I have 2 X 225 (1350) V3 and couldn't be happier. Thinking of grabbing one of these to extend the outdoor range.

I have 2 eap225 running with wired back haul. Does this one support the same roaming features as the 225 when running with their omada controller?

You're comparing a standalone wireless access point to a router+WAP in one.

Do you need the routing features? If not, the go with the standalone WAP.

I have used the previous C series Archer models but the range, throughput and reliability of these dedicated access points is way better than any router+ap combo i have ever had.

I use these for my WiFi access points. I've used the ubiquiti line and these blow them away, in reception and range at least. For routers and switches ubiquiti all the way.

I bought one of these as an alternative to Ubiquiti a few months ago and I couldn't be happier. The only drawbacks I've noticed are:
- Not all 5GHz channels are available. Only 36, 40, 44, 48, 149, 153, 157, and 161. I wish it would support the full range of 5GHz channels here in Canada (like channel 100) but it's not a deal breaker.
- and I wish the firmware didn't force you to use their images. This means it doesn't allow you to flash OpenWRT on it unfortunately.

Otherwise it's rock stable and it gives my full 2 story house 5GHz coverage. It also let's you run it in standalone mode, so you don't need to have the controller installed. Unlike Ubiquiti which does require a controller or else it goes into a feature-deprived mode.

And don't forget to mention that this is Tp-link's business line too. It wouldn't surprise me if the firmware gets more testing, meaning it's much more stable than their consumer offerings. And it works with their controller to manage multiple APs.

I run the controller off a Raspberry Pi that I have and it works great.

I'm looking to improve the wifi range directly outside my house, would this work well with my Asus Gigibit RT-AC86U?
