Asus RT-AC52U B1 Review

The ASUS RT-AC52U can be an eye-catching router. It includes a carbon fiber-like crosshatch patterning that catches the lighting so that it sparkles as you stroll past it. There are many glowing blue LEDs that shine through the crosshatch intersections, appearing only a small amount of glowing crosses.

The Asus RT-AC52U B1 (RT-AC52UB1) router released in 2017. It really is driven by MediaTek MT7620A @ 580 MHz chipsets, 64 MB RAM, and 16 MB flash. The AC750 router works with IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards, and the utmost velocity that you could get with RT-AC52U B1 is 300 + 433 Mbps.

Design

The router’s black and grey color palette is understated and smart. It comes with a detachable stand so that you can place it upright, which includes the positive aftereffect of positioning its three inner antennas vertically and really should help with cellular reception. It is possible to otherwise choose to lay the router smooth or mount it to a wall.
