Final Thoughts

Its been quite some time since we last looked at an Amped product and over the years I have most often enjoyed their solutions, especially at the peak of 802.11n. With 802.11ac the products haven't been as good as the past, I feel Amped Wireless went from being, in my mind very prestigious with top tier only solutions, to creating products to get them on the market and be somewhat competitive.

Granted the wireless market has exploded with 802.11ac with a massive amount of competition coming from every corner of the world. With all of this, the build quality of the Titan is one level above their shared frame Athena, Artemis, Helios platform as the plastics feel a bit bitter and the mesh and green inlay do give the unit more aesthetic appeal.

The performance was in all honestly decent for an AC1900 class solution. We were able to get wired speed via the Gigabit LAN and WAN ports and moving to wireless performance a solid 300Mbps on 2.4GHz and 700Mbps on 5GHz. Mobile throughput with our iPhone was quite good too, with a peak of 515Mbps which is at the top end of the routers we have tested this year.

Throughout, it fell off only slightly with the 2.4GHz band in our testing. We started at 80Mbps and dropped to 66MBps moving from 10 to 30ft with the 2.4GHz band and moving over to 5GHz we see a 150Mbps drop moving from 10 to 20ft but stabilizing as we moved to 30ft.

The platform firmware for the Amped Titan could use a makeover but the other hand says its always been quite stable so don't mess with it. In all honesty, I have never had any issues with Amped firmware in the five or so years I have been messing with different router platforms. That said, I would certainly like to see something added to the platform like nerdy menus that show Real-time data.

Pricing of the Titan has its MSRP at $179.99 US and I would certainly shop around to find a better deal for this solution as many AC1900 platforms have dropped near to or below the $100 mark as AC1900 is really entry-level in the current market.
