Might explain the deep price cuts the 86u saw since November.

Edit: Addition or replacement?

Just getting to know the 86u, and don't use all it's features. Not a gamer so I see no reason to change.

I won't change either, thrilled with 86u. Tried 3100 and 3200 but neither matched even my old 56u except for firmware updates and a little range. 86u is best of all!

It's basically an RT-AC86U with RGB lighting, wall-mountable, and it was validated for DFS channel use in the US (so, with 160 MHz channel width support).

That gaming interface looks ridiculous, what on Earth were they thinking, not everyone 12 years old here :)

My eyes! My eyes! :D

They really need to focus on what their product exudes or at least allow different 'skins' for the post-bubblegum crowd. ;)

That washer-dryer attachment is nice, I can multitask!

But you categorized it as being in a different generation than the AC86U. I assumed that it would its somehow significantly different, but apparently not?

That was an error, it's closer to the previous generation despite being released this year (and possibly be using the same SDK version as the two AX models I listed it with). I'll update my post.

Thanks

The answer to my question.

I see it on sale here for $200 cnd, but the 86U is $250 cnd. Sigh.
