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.
AC 1350 router has got a curvy design and is extremely lightweight considering the dimensions. There is LED indicators on the front and on the back there is DC in to power up, power on/off button, WPS button, reset point, 1x internet port and 4x Ethernet port.

Archer C60 special 5x antennas
Out of the 5 antennas 3x are dedicated for 2.4GHz and 2x for 5GHz. This has been done to ensure superior WiFi coverage, reduced signal interference and for enhanced stability.
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.
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.
