Produce Review: TRENDnet AC2600 StreamBoostT MU-MIMO WiFi Router

July 30, 2016

In April 2016, TRENDnet sent me their new AC2600 StreamBoostT MU-MIMO WiFi Router (model TEW-827DRU) to try. I have been using it since, and I am impressed with its connection reliability, WiFi speed, and ease of installation. It have never dropped connection and I have not experienced any slowdown when watching Amazon Prime movies in the past 4 months. As of July 2016, the device is available for an affordable price at USD $140 for Amazon Business customers. Based on price/performance, the TRENDnet AC2600 StreamBoostT MU-MIMO WiFi Router deserves an A.
