Conclusion: Buffalo's AirStation AC1300/N450 4-Port Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Ethernet Bridge WLI-H4-D1300 is perfect in form and function but is an expensive media bridge if you aren't interested in deploying draft 802.11ac.
Pros: Easy way to expand connectivity in wireless network. Simple setup. Stylish design.
Cons: Expensive media bridge option when paired with anything but Buffalo's 11ac router.
Buffalo AirStation 1300 Gigabit Dual Band Media Bridge
3 September 2012
Conclusion: You'd be foolish to invest in any 802.11ac kit at this stage, but the technology shows promise and is the only way forward to increase speed beyond the existing 5GHz 802.11n standard. Beyond that, this is a very fast 2.4GHz bridge with draft 802.11ac support. Within an all-Buffalo ecosystem it does make sense, but if you're hoping to take advantage of triple-connection speeds then forget it - those simply didn't materialise.
