Hooted 2 from PS outlet, left one.

Don't say I bo sic. Spend $300 and above can redeem $30 capital mall voucher, wrapping paper, PS 4 pieces shopping bag, a notebook for an upcoming movie. Imho the capital mall voucher looks better than any gift Asus is thinking to bundle.

Hoot away~~~

Just a quick'dirty unboxing of our local retail set of AC5300



Greeted with WTF, such courtesy of Asus



The glorious tower defence antennas



Accessories which no longer have packaging



Yes my crab (or spider which I don't eat)



I'll be heating up my maggie after a few hours of operation

Is it warm after powering on for an hour?
Is the top part really a grill for cooling or just some pattern?

Its warm, but you cannot see the inside so i guess its not an active grill for cooling.

yes warm despite cooler day today. has a 120mm fan blowing at it.

Tough nut to answer.

Compared to AC87, coverage is wider for both 2.4 and 5. Every corner of my house is now covered with 5G, let's not say how many bars, but at least its loading and moving

The 2.4G is pretty wicked, now can connect the moment i step out of the lift

First up 2.4G Channel 11


Next up 5G Channel 36


Lastly 5G Channel 149

What about a generic speedtest using DWA-192 as receiver?

2 rooms away, about 7m.



Sorry ah I cannot shift my cpu to within 1m of the KING.
