As the market stands right now, nearly every vendor has an AC3200 solution on the market, in past reviews such as the Nighthawk X6 and the Linksys EA9200, we had a chance to put these monsters of wireless technology through their paces. Shortly after CES 2015, we spoke with D-Link about their latest solution, the DIR-890L/R, and now a few months later, we have the latest in the lab ready for testing.
As we know, A3200 solutions allow the best mix of legacy and modern devices to communicate over a single network. With multiple 5GHz bands, you can manage your devices into a scenario where there is loss of performance with modern 802.11ac devices. Like previous AC3200 solutions, the D-Link DIR-890L/R is built on the Broadcom 5G Xstream platform featuring a 1GHz dual-core processor and what we can only guess is 256MB of DRAM and 128MB of NAND flash like previous solutions. On the wireless side of things, the DIR-890L/R features dual 5GHz bands capable of 1300 Mbps, while the 2.4GHz band reaches 600 Mbps.
Looking over the specifications, we find the DIR-890L/R housing four gigabit LAN ports next to a single gigabit WAN. A single USB 3.0 along with a USB 2.0 port allow Samba and DLNA access over the network. The wireless bands are split into a single 2.4GHz 802.11n network capable of 600 Mbps via TurboQAM, while both of the 5GHz bands are capable of 1300 Mbps.
The D-Link DIR-890L/R carries a MSRP of $369.99 with a one-year warranty.
