I am looking to get a new router so I can retire the rt ac 88 u to the bedroom. I have been think ,after advice from you guys,the rt ax 86 u would be it's likely replacement. The main job it will have is to stream US content from Australia ( I do love my movies )so I just wondered if there is a better choice to be had . I don't really use a VPN as much as express VPN,s media streaming app/ service eg smart DNS . Budget not an issue. Any suggestions? Guys

What's wrong with your RT-AC88U? It can stream HD content over VPN, no problem.
nothing is really wrong with it per say ,I just think it's getting on a bit ( aren't we all I hear you say ) but I used to use a tp link ac 1750 in the bedroom until I bricked it trying to flash it with, I think it was with tomato firmware and since then i have been using an old tp link 300 mbs that only has a single 2.4 ghz radio.
We only use the tp link to stream local content as it's set up on pass through the 88 u soooo Long story short I have convinced the war office that one needs to be replaced so naturally the tp is for the chop . That's as long as my other half doesn't work out that that it doesn't necessarily have to be replaced with an ax 86 U so what she don't know I get away with
ps please don't post how I can save the tp ac 1750 if she sees the email or post I'm back to square one

Because of your last requirement in post #6. ;)
Yes sorry I'm a bit pi5ed I was trying unsuccessfully to be funny I wasn't having a go at you. But seriously why are some of the 86,s black and some red . The red ones say Gundam Zaki ll edition . What's the difference?
PS on eBay not Amazon I haven't checked Amazon out yet

If you like the color editions better... they perhaps stream videos better. ;)
Ok I deserve that after last night but I must warn you I have stopped drinking since guzzling came in so having said that do they come in hot pink ??
