28 August 2012

Buffalo AirStation AC1300/N900 Gigabit Dual Band WZR-D1800H
22 May 2012
Conclusion: The Buffalo AirStation AC1300/N900 Gigabit Dual Band WZR-D1800H is the first 802.11ac router to come to market, though it's draft 802.11ac. The device is the fastest router we've tested to date with excellent range. A poorly designed interface and no native IPv6 are the only blemishes on this otherwise killer router.
Pros: Top throughput tested to date. Gives performance boost to 802.11n Wi-Fi even without 802.11ac client adapters. Elegant design. Advanced capabilities and features.
Cons: No DD-WRT-based interface as in other Buffalo routers. Interface is cluttered and poorly designed. No native IPv6 support. Unless you have high throughput needs and all-802.11n equipment, the case to buy is hard to make while 802.11ac is still in draft.
Excerpt: Fazit: Der Buffalo AirStation 1750 bietet ein sehr gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis: Der ac-Router ist vergleichsweise günstig und zeigt im Test insgesamt eine super ac-Performance. Bei n-Gegenstellen schlägt er sich allerdings nicht so gut.
