Is There a More Menacing Looking Router Than The ASUS RT-AC5300?

Asus RT-AC5300

Looking more like a device of torture than a piece of networking hardware, the ASUS RT-AC5300 certainly looks imposing.  Thankfully it has the specification to back up its swagger:

  • Ultra-fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi router with a combined tri-band data rate of 5334 Mbps for low latency online gaming, smooth 4K streaming and extremely fast file-sharing.
  • 4×4 antenna design with AiRadar universal beamforming for unbeatable wireless signal coverage
  • Link aggregation supports close to 2 Gbps wired transmission for more devices to enjoy faster access speed.
  • Multiple capacity Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO technology.
  • AiProtection with Trend MicroTM with triple-strength total network security, plus robust parental controls and privacy protection.

Could this be the ultimate enthusiast router?  It may be time for me to upgrade my trusty ASUS RT-N66U to this spiky badboy.

The ASUS RT-AC5300 is currently reduced from £399.99 to £309.99 on, it’s still a significant amount of money for something that just chugs away in the background, but every connected device in your home would probably benefit from it’s features:
