D-Link Latest Router Screams for Attention

Yesterday’s afternoon was spent in the company of this striking red beast from D-Link. It’s their latest router, the DIR890L Wireless AC3200 Tri Band Router which would be coming to Singapore is now available in stores for $399. The DIR890L high performance router would be able to help you make good on your 1Gbps fibre broadband plan, with wireless access speed per client able to reach up to up to 1.3Gbps.

Key Highlights

  • Six High-Gain Antenna
  • Total Max Throughput of 3.2Gbps
  • 1 x USB 3.0 port, 1 x USB 2.0 port
  • D-Link Shareport access
  • DD-WRT (upcoming)

The router calls for attention with it’s bright red glossy shell. Drawing comparisons to a spaceship-inspired design, or a fierce insect with a pointed front, the DIR890L is one router that you would want to show off with its bright striking looks. No more concealed antenna design, the 890L sports a total of six positionable antennas to let you optimise the coverage for your home or office. Personally, I think it looks great, and the red / black design would go well in today’s modern home decoration and offers both an aesthetic touch, as well as functional performance with the three bands of Wi-Fi, fast speeds and beamforming capability. It does take up a fair bit of space – about the size of a game console (373 x 241 x 157 mm).
