Wow! sounds like a good deal.
In real life use 802.11ax seems to offer double the speed if using the 2.4GHz band but on the 5GHz band it isn't actually much faster than 802.11ac. Review of the Archer TX3000E adapter:

digitalcitizen.life/tp-…iew
TP-Link AX50/AX3000 is powered by Intel/Lantiq GRX350 processor and WAV654 wifi according to wiki page
wikidevi.wi-cat.ru/TP-…X50

guru3d.com/new…tml

This is a bit odd because the GRX350 is usually found in VDSL modem routers. This AX50 does not have a DSL modem port for FTTC/VDSL2 connection.....

Other Wifi-6 routers on the market from Asus (RT-AX56) and Netgear (AX8) seem to favour Broadcom chipset. TP-Link also make a AX10/AX1500 but it is not sold in the UK. It uses Broadcom chipset.

The very few reviews on Amazon UK for the AX50/AX3000 don't look favourable. At end of the day, they are all '1st generation' Wifi-6 products. There are likely to be a few teething/compatibility problems, much like when 802.11ac products were announced almost a decade ago.

I've actually got a TX3000E connecting to an AX6000 on Wifi6 5ghz (router and adapter on different floors).

It's eliminated all dropouts, haven't had a dropped connection once. A file transfer from a PC connected to the router through Ethernet to the adapter has a transfer speed that goes between 25-50megabytes a second which is much faster than I had before, It seesaws between those rates but I don't know how much of that is down to interference on windows flaky file transfer protocols. I will say that it matches the issues people have had with this chipset though.

TLDR: significantly better than AC but there will almost certainly be better, 2nd gen adapters coming out somepoint this year.
