You have left out the good-looking ZenWifi XT8 (if you look for a good design). Triband too. You can buy (as me) a single unit. I do not need Mesh, and only use it wirelessly.

That's one good looking router. I saw these at my local Costco. It would blend right in on a bookcase.

This thread is leading to an existential crisis. In search of the pursuit of stable internet bandwidth, one first turns to mythical god like Azeus, but then attempts to find stability for one's router through Zen, but then comes to realize the existence of stable internet must lie within the router itself. Stable internet has no nature outside of one's router. But the essence of stable internet, lies not only within the one router, but the collection of routers that make up the entire internet. It must be one of many to function to its full potential...

Ok. You asked for opinions, and mine is that ZenWIFI XT8 is stable, fast, triband, and "goog looking". I had some problems with Feb update, but solved with a reset. I think there were too much changes in that upgrade. After a full reset, all is smoth. And now I'm using Smart Connect triband for a week, and I'm very happy. Always preferred 3 different ssids, but now... after testing it... I think I will stay on smart connect.

Choosing an AX88u or a AX92u depends on your usage requirements.

If you are building a small network (single router in a house) then the AX88u will beat the AX92u hands down. It has 4 x 4 radios so will give you higher throughput.

However, if you need to build a large mesh network and want to serve a lot of clients wirelessly, then the AX92u is the best solution. Real world throughput on the AX92u is 100mb/s on 2.4ghz and 400 mb/s on 5 Ghz. The strong point of the AX92u is it's backhaul channel is AX.

AX88u = Clients use Wifi6 AX
AX92u = Clients use Wifi5 AC
