TP-link with the Archer C20 ratings equally well about all departments; it appears good using its glowing blue prism textured the best plate, the UI functions since it should and doesn’t appear frightening to an inexperienced consumer, even though I perform not need the exact information regarding the equipment inside(am guessing its a Qualcomm Atheros chip like its sibling the Archer C7) the Archer C20 works pretty well even yet in a tough atmosphere such as for example our test laboratory. The pricing nevertheless is a little bit of mystery because the online retailers own it listed at various prices which range from sub 2.5K to 3.5-4K range.
