    Why does the link for "baltic" show the newer 245 and the "us" shows the older version? Is the newer version available yet? I can't find it for sale anywhere.

    [Edit]: Having re-read the thread more carefully, I see this is available in Europe but seemingly not in the US. I don't suppose anyone has any idea when/if the updated 245 will be released in the US for sale?

    FYI - in case anyone else cares, a rep on the TP-Link forum told me that the EAP245v3 will be available in the US in late March.

    Thanks for checking. It's been hard not to bite on the all the 225 deals, but I have a few 3x3 devices, so I really wanted to wait. Now depending on the price, I will need to decide if I should skip a generation and move to ax.

    I'm in the same boat. There isn't very much in the FCC pipeline for an AP with ax support though so I expect it will be a lot closer to 2020 before anything is available.

    It looks like the EAP-245v3 is showing up on the TP-Link US website now. Hopefully that still means a late March 2019 release in the USA. I'm looking forward to seeing the cost structure as I think I would like to install these in my home. I recently put EAP225v3 into my parents home and they are working well.

    The difference between EAP225_V3 and EAP245_v3 is 20 buck, is worth? I´m planning to get 2 units in the office.

    I have both. I feel like the 245v3 has a bit more range than the 225v3. I'm returning my 225s and getting 245s
