Packaging and a Closer Look
The ROG Rapture packaging reminds me of what you would see from a motherboard. We have the red on black colorway ROG and ASUS branding with a holographic model listed next to an image of the router. Along the bottom, we have features listed including Aura RGB support.
On the backside, ASUS has a good amount of marketing top and bottom.
The bottom edge of the box includes a full specifications list.
The scope of delivery includes the router, eight antennas, ethernet and power cables.
All four sides of the router are covered by antenna connections, leaving the LED panel as the only way of designating the front of the router. Within the LED panel we have power, 2.4GHz, 5GHz and internet activity lights followed by LAN connectivity 2.5Gbe and WPS.
Of to the side, we have Wi-Fi, WPS and Game Boost buttons along with two more antenna connections.
On the backside, we start with the power button to the left followed by power input and dual USB 3.0. We then move into the 2.5Gbe port followed by Blue WAN and four more LAN.
With all eight antennas connected, the ROG Rapture takes on an impressive look.
Each antenna carries over the copper and black colorway.
