Is the DIR-890L good buy?
« on: April 19, 2016, 01:35:34 PM »

So im on a fence of ordering DIR-890L.

What i'm on a fence about u might ask?
- Well, it's almost year old (updates in the future?)
- NAT performance? Is it good enough for 100/100 connection with minimal ping?
- Overall stability of the D-link routers.
- Processor that's quite old? / small RAM(?)

I'm currently running NT-56U that's lacking me back. Other option would be RT-AC88U, but it cost 150€ more and has only dual-band, and MU-MIMO (that i don't currently need)

Should i pull the triger on 890L? :P I relly like the look of the router and it seems decent. I haven't really owned a D-link router before

So im on a fence of ordering DIR-890L.

What i'm on a fence about u might ask?
- Well, it's almost year old (updates in the future?) FW started with v1.01 and were now at v1.09 so theres been updates and I presume maybe a couple more as the router is stable. Maybe a couple of bugs.
- NAT performance? Is it good enough for 100/100 connection with minimal ping? I have 100/3 here and enjoy my services with this router. Good BB grades with Dslreports.
- Overall stability of the D-link routers. Had good experiences with D-Link routers over all. D-Link is proactive and correcting issues. I prefer D-link over other Mfr routers in regards to development maturity.

Keep us posted.
