Wi-Fi for our homes and businesses is an ever changing platform. The minute we purchase a fancy new router, the next best thing is being rolled off of assembly lines, packaged up, and sent to retailers. For the longest time, the single node wireless environment has served many of us quite well but within the next year that entire way of thinking will be gone, a thing of the past, adios!
I say this as I have just setup my first Mesh network in my home, and while admittedly I have used multiple APs for years, I am impressed! The simple fact is Mesh is the wave of the future bringing enterprise technology into your home with a complete system that floods your house with waves of 802.11ac. The Amplifi HD is the flagship, leading the way into consumer homes for Ubiquiti and with this platform, you get two access points offering AC1750 technology, along with its base station that provides the same 450Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 1300Mbps on the 5GHz band.
Also, the rear of the base houses four gigabit LAN ports next to a single WAN and USB port. The Mesh points, as mentioned above, offer the same technology and can be placed wherever you need to expand your wireless network and with an integrated signal indicator on the front of the units, positioning them for the best performance is quite simple. To top all of this off, this unit features a full-color touchscreen and can be controlled by an app available for both Android and iOS.
Pricing, Availability, and Specifications
The specification sheet from Ubiquiti goes over all three models including the standard and LR. The HD, which is what I have in house, is the top model with six radios and 18 MIMO chain capability. Further down, we have the interfaces listed followed by power consumption at 11 watts. The front mounted display is listed as a 1.6" 240x240 212 pixels per inch with full color. Supported data rates are listed at the very bottom.
The MSRP of the Ubiquiti Amplifi HD comes in at $349.99 with a one-year warranty. For those on a stricter budget, you can get the standard model for $199.99 and the LR for $299.99 albeit with less performance.
