TP-Link’s new set of compact-sized USB adapters include the Archers T3U, T2U Nano, and T2U Plus. All three products are dual-band wireless AC devices, support WPA and WPA2 encryption protocols and are Windows 10/8.1/8/7/XP and Mac OS X compatible.
Starting with the T3U, this new mini wireless USB adapter is the only one in this set supporting MU-MIMO and USB 3.0 ports. An AC1300 device, the T3U is also the fastest of the three new adapters with maximum link rates 400 Mbps @ 2.4 GHz and 867 Mbps @ 5 GHz.
TP-Link also introduces two AC600 T2U models. The T2U Nano is a low-profile version of this USB adapter line, while the larger T2U Plus is the larger wireless adapter that includes 256QAM support and an adjustable 5dBi high-gain multi-directional antenna. Both T2U models have maximum link rates of 200 Mbps @ 2.4 GHz and 433 Mbps @ 5 GHz.
