ASUS AX92U Wi-Fi 6 Mesh Review (Page 5)

Final Thoughts

I'll start by saying out of the three ASUS Wi-Fi 6 solutions we have had in the lab, the AX92U is by far my favorite not only for its compact size but its performance. Build quality is as expected for a router with the ASUS name attached although I would say be very careful with the antenna as they do seem quite fragile. The plastics have a great matte finish to them, and the gold accents really tie everything together.

As for the UI, having worked with it from the end of 802.11n through 802.11ac, I will say it's getting boring and stale seeing the same interface for all routers. At this point, all the features are solid and stable, but we need light mode dark mode or a skinnable interface just to dress it up and make it fresh. As mentioned, features in the interface have come a long way, are quite stable at this point and really might be the most complete package next to DumaOS.

As for performance, we were able to get some great numbers out of the AX92U. Starting with LAN at 941Mbps, we followed that up with 5GHz performance reaching 447Mbps with 80MHz and 898Mbps at 160MHz. The performance wasn't quite as good as the standalone AX88U or the monster ROG unit but did show better range performance using two nodes.

As for pricing, ASUS has come out slightly aggressive with the AX92U at $399.99 putting it in the same range as the 2nd generation eero, Orbi Pro and Tri-Band Linksys Velop solutions while at the same time having the ability to easily double the performance over those units.

Performance 89%

Quality 86%

Features 90%

Value 87%

The Bottom Line

While the AX92U sacrifices little performance for its size, it makes up for it in range and fantastic backhaul between nodes.
