D-Link Amplifi Cloud Router 5700 (DIR-865L)

PC Magazine
16 September 2012
  • Conclusion: D-Link's DIR-865 L falls short in overall performance compared with other draft 11ac routers on the market. Issues with features that should make the DIR-865 L stand from its competitors such as the SharePort utility and the mydlink cloud service are too problematic to give the DIR-865 L an edge over competitors.
  • Pros: Provides 11ac as well as 802.11n. USB port for attaching USB drives. Robust IPv6 support.
  • Cons: Performs worse than competing draft 11ac routers on the market. USB port does not support printers. SharePort utility interface issues. Problems signing up and registering for mydlink cloud service.
