The Asus RT-AC87U combines smart design with a simple to use but featured-packed interface. Performance impresses, especially over 5GHz and also at distance. From our tests the MU-MIMO feature currently only offers a small speed increase but as a package, for the money, this router is an excellent buy.

This would definitely be recommended if you're looking forward to everything it offers other than the low LAN transfer speed that is among the other powerful ones in the market of 802.11AC routers at that price point. If you already own an 802.11AC router, there's no reason to upgrade to this just yet. Purchasing this would definitely future-proof for the years to come.

The ASUS AC2400 RT-AC87U used the 802.11ac technology at its best (for 2014) and if you don’t want the latest ASUS router, the RT-AC3200 or to wait until the 802.11ax is implemented properly and becomes widespread, you will have to settle with this technology marvel, the ASUS AC2400 RT-AC87U.
