Packaging is nearly identical to past TP-Link solutions, although I suspect with the logo change what you see on retail shelves could change in the future. To the right, you get an image of the router with information to the left and down below.

On the backside, we have a large graphic representation of each band.

The scope of delivery includes the power brick, Ethernet cable, and reading materials.

Taking our first look at the router itself, we find it similar to the AC3200 model we tested a few months ago. I like this design; being so compact it saves quite a bit of room. All eight antennas pop up from the case.

The front panel houses LEDs to the left for each band, power, and USB while the right side has switches for wireless, WPS, and the LEDs.

On the back, the I/O connections have the four gigabit LAN ports grouped together and the WAN port to the left and USB 3.0 to the far right.
