TP-Link Archer C9 AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Router (w/AV500 Powerline WiFi Kit) Review

Rating: 8.0.

Today we are going to take a look at one of the latest wireless routers from TP-Link, the AC1900.  This particular model is TP-Link’s top-of-the-range Wireless AC router and is priced very competitively.

We were impressed by the TP-Link AV500 powerline networking kit which we reviewed recently, and TP-Link have supplied us with a slightly different variant of this to test which acts as a wireless range extender.  It will be interesting to see how well this improves range and enhances transfer rates at long distances when paired with the Archer C9.
