Tenda AC9 AC1200 Dual-Band Wireless Router Review (Page 1)

Tenda AC9 AC1200 Dual-Band Wireless Router Review
Tenda's AC9 AC1200 is one of the cheapest dual-band wireless routers we've ever reviewed, but does that straight up mean it's bad? Not at all.

Tenda isn't the most well-known brand in the states, but they do quite well for themselves delivering solutions that are more cost-effective. Not long ago we had a look at the AC15, an AC1900 top-tier offering from Tenda and today we look at the AC9.



The AC9 is an AC1200 solution, and as far as routers are concerned, it's really the lowest you would want to go when upgrading from an 802.11n solution. While any modern router will certainly boost overall network performance when upgrading from older tech, AC1200 is just above the threshold of wireless N.


The Tenda solution carries 300 Mbps capabilities on the 2.4GHz band and 867 Mbps on the 5GHz band, which is complimented by four gigabit Ethernet ports. The base of this platform is running off a Broadcom chipset which is quite popular among entry-level solutions. However, this router is operating at 900MHz with 128MB of DDR3.




The MSRP of the Tenda AC9 AC1200 wireless router comes in at $39.99 with a three-year warranty.
