Design and Specifications

This router looks a bit weird, big but beautiful, thanks to the glossy white finishing on the top with eye catchy textures. The TP-LINK Archer C60 AC 1350 is big and the antenna also takes up extra space. Another important point to note is that the antennas are fixed, you cannot remove them, you can however adjust the angle of each antenna to some extent.

Performance

For the same setup that I am currently using i.e. router 2.4GHz + repeater = full signal (4 bars) in the next room, when I replaced my router with Archer C60, I got 3 bars, stable signal, without using the repeater.

Verdict

If you are planning to buy a router then go ahead with the TP-LINK Archer C60 AC1350, it will provide you better coverage area and stability. Unfortunately there is no USB port, that you usually get on most routers.
