Found 16th Feb 2016
This is the best price I found on internet for this router. Ordered one for myself. i have owned rt-ac68u router for almost 2 years now. Never lost signal once. So hopefully this is going to be better than the one I have.

Great price, but it's a lot to risk from Gearbest, cheap stuff is fine.
Yeah you right. A lot risk to spend that much on a router from Gearbest. I bought few things on gearbest before but never have a problem. hopefully this time is going OK for me too. fingers and toes crossed.
Presumably it'll come with a US or Euro 2 pin mains adapator?
it will come with 2 pin mains but you can use adaptor. i use adaptor for my rt-ac68u too. no problem.
sorry i forgot to included shipping cost. it costs $57.
How come you ain't sticking with your ac68u? Is the performance upgrade worth it?
Probably get nailed for import duty on top of that!

​i love my ac68u but the range isnt the best.
Hard to give this heat when the AC87U is £118 on Amazon, and £99.97 in PC WORLD stores (not all have stock)

It actually comes with 3 cables in the box, including a UK one.

Range is bloody great when you sort the power limitation out by unlocking it
I walk up past 9 large detached houses on my street and still have one bar on my phone!

Ordered mine 3 weeks ago, the power socket is built in to the power brick and it's a Euro Plug only.
Hello,

Has anybody ordered and received the rt-ac88u from Gearbest to the UK, if so how long did it take to deliver? can you use a UK 3 pin plug to C5 (cloverleaf) to the power supply brick? Also is the Asus router hardware region locked (which affects which wi-fi channels/frequencies are available to the router etc)?

Thank You,
