The D-Link DAP-1860 AC Wi-Fi Range Extender was launched in Singapore last month and is retailing for S$189.
The D-Link DAP-1860 operates on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands using concurrent dual-band technology with four MIMO external antennas. It supports MU-MIMO.
The Linksys Max-Stream AC2600 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router or Linksys EA8500 Router in short was released on 4th August 2015 exclusively at Challenger and is now available in most electronics stores. The recommended retail price of the Linksys EA8500 is S$399.
Despite having a model number of EA8500, it is not exactly a lower end model when compared to the Linksys EA9200 Router. The Linksys EA9200 is a AC3200 router and hence it is capable of speeds up to 3,200Mbps while the EA8500 is an AC2600 router capable of speeds up to 2,530Mbps. But let’s be honest here, even in the perfect case environment, we will not be able to get up to the theoretical speed.
