Packaging and a Closer Look
Packaging for the 89X features a rather large box with an image of the router to the right, branding to the left.
Several features are shown in more detail on the back, including Wi-Fi speed and 10Gbe.
Unboxing, the AX89X is a rather large specimen. Eight antennas cradle the body of the router, ASUS branding in the center.
Each section between the antenna holds a bit of connectivity. For this first part, we have the first four gigabit ethernet ports.
This is followed by the other four between the next set of antennas.
We then move to the WAN port in blue and 10Gbe copper and SFP.
Ethernet connectivity is followed by USB 3.0 and power input.
Accessories include the power adapter and ethernet cable.
