    Unless all the units manufactured in 2018 that seemed to be the most problematic have been purged from inventory IMHO it isn't worth purchasing a refurbished unit with a short warranty when for US$45 more you can get a new router with a full year warranty.

    If you are willing to take a chance on a refurbished AC86 then at least Amazon offers them for US$138 with a ninety day guarantee.

    Newegg gives a 90 day warranty too. The return period for refund/exchange is 1/31 for any reason. I understand the issues with 2018 units.

    Mine arrived with 2.4g dead and the unit was dirty and hadn't been reset...I wonder if they did anything to "refurbish" it at all? H/W version 1.5 but date of manufacture was covered with refurb sticker. Returned for refund.

    @Gar, i'm selling a RT-AC86U (manufacture date 2019) without any issues for $110, if you're interested let me know. Reason for selling is I'm thinking of getting the google mesh system.
