The body has this glossy red paint job that just catches your eye right away. Although it is a bit of a fingerprint magnet and is big for a router. In fact, once you've attached all 8 High power antennas, it can take a substantial amount of desk space.

At the bottom are the legal certifications logos and the 4 grippy rubber feet that prevents the router from unnecessarily moving.
Signal strength is excellent and it does not drop Mbps from our 20 Mbps PLDT Fibr connection!

The router performs wonderfully especially when there are multiple inter-device data transfer over Wi-Fi. This means simultaneous data transfers are a breeze. Otherwise, the range, power and signal strength is decent. 

If you're not into multiple device data transfers, for professional or for when each member of the family is using the data transfer for their own use, then this device maybe overkill.

The rest of the features

It features MU-MIMO out of the box which means  Multi-User, Multiple Input and Multiple Output allows wireless communication between a set of users or terminals with each one having one or more antennas that communicate with each other.

This is a rather advanced and high grade feature that isn't found often in the family home setting. It is great for commercial user.
