AC1200 Wireless Router Challenge (Asus RT-AC55UHP | TP-Link Archer C5 | D-Link DIR-850L)

Lets see who fairs better when it come to the AC1200 Router category with this comparison video. Today we have the Asus RT-AC55UHP, TP-Link Archer C5 and D-Link DIR-850L going head to head with one another. For the similarities are they have dual band with the same signal rating of 300Mbps at 2,4Ghz and 867Mbps at 5Ghz as well as 4 Ethernet ports. The Asus has a 1 USB3.0 port located at the front and 1 USB 2.0 port at the back, total 2 USB ports. The D-link has single USB2.0 port while the TP-link has 2 USB2.0 ports. The Asus has a longer antenna compared to the rest with D-Link antenna is build into the shell of the router making it look better (and cleaner) than the 2 others. With all the physical comparison aside, lets move on to the actual performance which you have to check in the video above. Asus fairs better than the other two when it come to signal strength. TP-Link and D-Link has a glossy surface which looks really nice on any surface but attracts fingerprint and dust, yes you can clean the surface but you will introduce scratches to the surface as glossy surface is prone to micro-scratches.  Below are the pictures or each of the router we have tested.
