We haven't seen too many routers come through offering up a touchscreen, so when asked if TweakTown would like to take a look at the latest solution from TP-LINK, I was happy to dive right in. In fact, looking back the only other touchscreen networking solution I have seen is the Range Extender TAP-EX2 from Amped Wireless, so this router should be interesting nonetheless.
With AC1900 now mature, being on the market for going on three years, it was just a matter of time before vendors started dressing up their routers to appeal to the younger generation. While touchscreens are now a part of our everyday lives, they can often be cumbersome as they don't always work as expected. With the Touch P5, TP-LINK has deployed a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 480x272 and 16-bit color. On the surface, this router is your typical dual-band solution offering 600 Mbps on the 2.4GHz band while 5GHz tops out at 1300 Mbps.
Going a little deeper, the Touch P5 offers four gigabit LAN alongside a single gigabit WAN port all located on the backside of the router. For storage, it offers both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 with the SuperSpeed port placed on the front corner. Three dual-band antennas operate off two Broadcom BCM4360 radios while the main CPU in this router is the Broadcom BCM4709, a dual-core chip operating at 1GHz with 128MB of memory and 128MB of flash paired with it.
MSRP of the TP-LINK Touch P5 sits at $204.99 with a two-year warranty.
