[Amazon.ca] UBIQUITI ER-X Router, Black, $ 59.99

Pretty capable router in my opinion. The current discount is definitely warm against the BF price last month ($ 54.99), but I have rarely seen this router going on sale.

Update (02-Jan-20)

Amazon still has this for $ 59.99 (on back order, due in stock by January 16)

Happy New Year :)

Please note this won't show up in a Unifi Controller, as it's part of the Edge product line.

I'd hoped the ER-X SFP would go on sale :(

Anyone tried it to setup along with an OpenVPN site-to-site server/client(2 of them or with something else)? How are these performing in throughput(I am debating if I shall get 2xRpi or 2 of these)...?
Thanks for the input!

Thanks! Knew there was a reason for not buying this yet. Still waiting to add to my setup that’s only the AC pro AP at this point

What are some of the potential use cases for an average consumer?

Greater control with respect to separating traffic between home/guest/iot devices is what I use mine for.

I wouldn't really recommend it if you just want things to work. It takes effort to set these things up the way you want. That said, I'm really happy with mine and can't go back to consumer router/ap combos anymore.

Haven't needed to restart my router ever since I switched from Archer C8 to AC-Lite and ER-X.

Wifi has been absolutely rock solid

I haven't done this myself, but I have been running OpenWRT on one for around a year and it's been rock solid. Haven't needed a single reboot.

You may also want to check into Wireguard if you're looking at maximum throughput. Here are some comparison benchmarks on the Edgerouters:

If you have two internet connections you can use this for load balancing or failover. At one point I had a cable and DSL connection in case one of them went down. But Rogers finally got around to fixing the defective equipment in the local node that fed my connection so I cancelled the slower DSL connection. I did have my ER-X up for 250 days at last check though so it is quite stable

Wow! Didn't know that it can run OpenWRT on it even! Thanks for the link and TBH this is first time for me seeing wireguard in action (I must be too outdated). Now I just need to wait for Amazon to ship then!
Thanks again!
