How many of us here have more than one device that connects to the internet via WiFi? I know I do. Everyone in my house does, actually. At least 2 devices too, for that matter. With that, it means your WiFi network at home can get choked pretty easily, and that’s why you need something like the D-Link DIR-878’s MU-MIMO.
The main point to upgrade to this router is the MU-MIMO. Featuring 3×3 MU-MIMO antenna configuration, the D-Link DIR-878 can offer much better coverage in your home or in an office where many devices are connected to a single router.
The D-Link DIR-878 has a theoretical maximum transfer speeds up to 1,900Mbps, as it is a dual-band WiFi router that has a Wireless-AC WiFi with speeds up to 1,300Mbps and a Wireless-N WiFi with up to 600Mbps.
For those who are still rocking Ethernet cables (like me), then fear not – the D-Link DIR-878 has a total of 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports, which is a standard amount of ports for a home router.
The new D-Link DIR-878 is priced at RM609 (even cheaper at Lazada here), and availability starts this month. Purchase a DIR-878 now and DAP-1520 Range Extender worth RM199 for free, too! More information about it here.
I’d say, this router is pretty good for its price and what it offers. With the increase of bandwidth-intensive usages like HD video streaming or NAS file syncing, AC WiFi routers have never been more relevant to our everyday use case.
