One might think that based on the model numbers MX4200 and MX5300, the Velop MX4200 might be a more inferior model. But it is actually not true, and in the real world, you might not notice the difference.
Linksys Velop MX5300 Wi-Fi 6 was launched in Singapore on the 20th February 2020 for S$569. At launch, it was exclusive to Challenger and Hachi.tech. Other retailers started selling from 20th March 2020 onwards.
In 2019, I am going to replace the gateway node with an eero Pro.
The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac was launched in Singapore this week at a recommended retail price of S$199.
You can get it from Storage Studio on Lazada at a slightly higher price of S$220. Stocks are a little constrained right now but expect more stocks to arrive in January 2019.
The Linksys EA9300 Max-Stream AC4000 Tri-Band Router was launched in August 2017 and is currently retailing for S$399.
The EA9300 is not the highest end router from Linksys, that title still belongs to EA9500.
Linksys Velop is Linksys’s first wi-fi mesh system, and it was launched in Singapore on 12th April 2017. They are the second company to launch wi-fi mesh system in Singapore. The first being Netgear Orbi.
I have been using eero since January 2017 and eero is a wi-fi mesh system as well.
The Linksys Max-Stream AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router (EA9500) has been available in Singapore since 1st August 2016. It is retailing for S$539.
The EA9500 is the highest-end router of the Linksys Max-Stream family. I did a review of the mid-range model which is the Linksys EA8500 Max-Stream AC2600 Router back in October 2015.
The D-Link DIR-890L AC3200 Wireless Tri-Band Gigabit Cloud Router was released in Singapore back in February 2015 and is retailing for S$399 making it the same price as the Linksys EA9200 Wireless AC3200 Tri Band Smart Wi-Fi Router.
I wonder whats up with router names these days, is like each company is trying to add in more keywords to the official name of the router.
The Linksys EA9200 Wireless AC3200 Tri-Band Smart Wi-Fi Router was launched in Singapore on the 6th February 2015 and the recommended retail price of it is S$399. It is only available at Challenger stores for now.
Linksys EA9200 is the new flagship router after the Linksys E8350 AC2400 Dual Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router and personally I think the EA9200 is the true successor to the Linksys WRT1900AC Router which was launched last May.
