    The RT-AC87U is supremely fast—when it's paired with a second RT-AC87U configured as a wireless bridge. You should make sure its features and performance fits your needs before plunking down your cash.

    The RT-AC87U is supremely fast—when it's paired with a second RT-AC87U configured as a wireless bridge. You should make sure its features and performance fits your needs before plunking down your cash.

    Pros

    • Supremely fast when paired with an 802.11ac bridge
    • Very long list of advanced features
    • Less-expensive than Netgear's Nighthawk X6

    Cons

    • Not the best solution for serving multiple 802.11ac bridges
    • Not the absolute fastest wireless when not paired with a bridge
