TP-Link's hardware is decent ... but their software support is crap. Firmware is often not updated, even where are massive security holes uncovered.

If you're gonna use alternative firmware with a tp-link (ie openwrt) then that's fine. But this is something for semi-advanced users to do.

I have a couple of TP-Links I keep as backups, my WDR4300 from ages ago still works fine.

lolz..... my cousin brother who is in software engineering keep telling me that TP-Link is actually good products.....  dont go for their low end product but high end one....

so this asus you will be recommending ya?
keeping it as spare means you are not using TP-Link currently ? So what are you using now?

Replaced with WS880 and then currently using AC-86U. Reason is because 512MB RAM and asuswrt.

In the event this 86U died, i will use back my WS880. All my asuswrt were installed with optware-ng, so only in the event the features or software i that needed not ported in optware-ng, i will use tplink with openwrt.

that little dinosaur is easier to handle compared to this 86U, i mean in term of stability and robustness. the only drawback is we will stuck with older firmware.

U mean AC86U?

Malaysia official unit : RM 1049
https://www.lazada.com.my/products/asus-rt-...ZIBXcP&search=1

China official unit : CNY 899 = RM 532.60 (roughly), price not included international postage CNY 48=RM 28.44 (roughly)
https://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?spm=a220m...5fbcddcd773770e

The pros to buy Malaysia unit which covered 3 year local warranty which you can send back to ASUS Malaysia for warranty.
The cons to buy China unit which also covered 3 years warranty, but you need to send back to ASUS China for warranty (in case need warranty)

I guess u didn't read the previous posts, there were many reported having issue with China set (including myself) hence my advice to u better avoid that, don't get yourself into trouble.

Some people would say number 1 is better
But to me number 2 is better because less dust would go into the router instead of directly blowing into the router
