D-Link Unleashes the AC3200 Beast [#CES2015]

DIR-890L_A1_Image-LSide_RED1-800x431D-Link came to CES to show off its newest router, the AC3200 tri-band. It’s red, it’s got six antennas and it’s got a unique design like no other router that we’ve seen in recent years (except for maybe the ASUS Nighthawk), but that’s not what makes this router what it is. It’s what it’s got on the inside and it will change how you use your home network.

The AC3200 is a beast of a router and based on the information provided at the D-Link website,this is a router that has a ton of features to optimize your SOHO or just help allocate bandwidth to all of the devices in your house if you have a family or you’re just a person with a lot of gadgets.

If you really want to know what this router can do then you can take a look at the spec sheet below.

  • Wi-Fi Performance: Stream HD multimedia across your home without interruption using ridiculously fast wired and wireless speeds
  • Simultaneous Tri-Band: Deliver faster Wi-Fi speeds of up to 3200Mpbs (600N on 2.4GHz + 1300Mpbs + 1300Mpbs on 5GHz)
  • Smart Connect: Prevents older devices from affecting optimal performance
  • Advanced AC SmartBeam: Bring dead zones back to life by delivering individual beams of bandwidth where you need it the most
  • Latest Processor: 1 GHz Dual Core Processor for a faster network speed for a more powerful router
  • Remote Access & Management: Manage your network from your smartphone or tablet
  • High-Performance Antennas: 6 high-performance antennas deliver maximum range around your home
  • USB 3.0: Up to 10x faster than USB 2.0
  • Compatibility: Works with existing and future Wi-Fi devices

All in all, with the CES still going on I’m sure that we’re going to see a bunch of new routers and new hardware as it pertains to home networking. The AC3200 is probably going to be the most unique of all of the routers that we’ll see at the CES. Will it be the best of the bunch? Who knows? It’s expensive at $309.99 retail but it’s the type of router that won’t need changing for a few years and with the speeds and features it offers, that makes it worth it if you ask me.
