APC Best Router of 2018

The 2019 Australian PC Awards winners

AUSTRALIA 2019/05/01

KitGuru

Worth Buying

Overall, we are impressed with what AiMesh has to offer. The setup needs a little smoothing, with a bit more advice on which WiFi signal to use when you’re using AiMesh with a tri-band router. But it’s a distinct improvement over a repeater or extender, and saves you replacing your entire WiFi with a new mesh system, yet gives you similar improvements in range and performance.

The Rapture GT-AC5300 is a superb router and this comes with great features that you’ll definitely need. For a small quad core router that features only 1GB of memory, it offers excellent connection; this is also evident when paired to your Wi-Fi network since it will provide you with not only outstanding signal but perfect range as well. Although Wi-Fi routers usually have a limit when it comes to its power output, the Rapture GT-AC5300 comes with extra antennas which helps improve your connection. All in all, we can definitely say that this ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 is an amazing device that performs flawlessly while simultaneously providing excellent range.

he ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 is undoubtedly the best wireless router we’ve ever used so far. While it is remarkably expensive, with a price tag of over Php20,000.00, the ROG Rapture provides an undoubtedly premium experience. It combines top-of-the-line hardware and performance with a humongous suite of features that are definitely more than most gamers or general users would need. Those looking for a future-proof router they plan on using for more than a few years and are willing to spend quite a bit for it will definitely not be left wanting with the ROG Rapture.

This chip in particular is the newer BCM4366E. Moreover, ASUS has switched to the BCM4908 for the CPU on the GT-AC5300 along with double the RAM and flash storage. Another feature that stands out is that this router packs in eight RJ45 ports which is a first time for us. Essentially, it’s an improved RT-AC5300 with a swanky UI and newer hardware. Oh, and don’t forget the eight LAN ports.

This router is very fast and does its job very well, especially for gaming, but it has its shortcomings. Although it has good stability in wireless signal and connection speed, but for its high price I'm not sure how much it's worth it. It is a difficult dilemma, especially when there are people who read it and do not really need a special gaming router or they do not use purchased routers at all. And they rent from various network companies (such as Bezeq, HOT, etc.).

The Asus ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 comes to the market to hit strong among the gaming routers. We think it is a good fusion between the RT-AC88U and the new RT-AC86U, since both are on the crest of the domestic router wave. But the GT-AC5300 brings an extra plus with an improved chipset, a total of eight LAN connections and is ideal to get the most out of LAN Party (via wifi) with its tri-band.
