Netgear A6200 Review

The Netgear A6200 is the first 802.11ac wireless internet adaptor. This is something that we have all been waiting for, for a very long time. It is a good thing that this device is finally here with us and everyone is enthusiastic to know more about it, how it works as well as what are its main features.

 

We are going to look at the Netgear A6200 in a step by step formula pointing out its features, strong points as well as its weaknesses. Before looking at any other thing, it is very important to note that the high speeds promised by Netgear have been delivered. The speeds that this wireless network adopter offers are just amazing. The adopter is able to clock peak speeds in the room of 75MB/s. This is simply out of this world and this gadget is just in a league of its own. Furthermore, the average transfer speeds are about 66MB/s which are also very impressive.

 

This is something that we had never experienced before with other wireless internet gadgets and is really a big plus for the Netgear A6200. The Netgear A6200 features a big black USB adaptor. You will be able to fit this USB adaptor in any of your laptop’s or PC’s USB port and from there you can enjoy very high speed internet as well as other wireless connections. In the past we have had very serious challenges with wireless USB adaptors. This is because of a variety of reasons such as single stream performance which restricted to 150Mbps. These slow speeds have mainly been caused by restricted antennae space and all the former wireless USB adaptors have had a single antenna.

 

However, the Netgear A6200 is meant to correct all these. The first notable thing about the Netgear A6200 is that it has two antennas. However these antennas are not visible as they are both internal antennas. Nonetheless, that’s very good news as with the two antennas the speeds that the gadget offers are greatly improved. These two antennas proved double AC streams, each at around 433Mbps. This only means that this USB wireless adaptor is able to offer speeds of up to 866Mbps. However, this is short of the 1300Mbps that was advertised of this USB wireless adaptor. One of the greatest undoing of the Netgear A6200 is that it is a USB 2.0 device.

 

To be honest this is really annoying and you wonder why the manufacturer did this. With such a high end device that is required to offer optimal speeds at all times, one would expect a faster USB port. USB 2.0 is not good at all as it very slow and offers a host of other various challenges. Furthermore this very slow port slows down the speed of the device drastically. Further tests on performance of the Netgear A6200 show that the gadget is quite impressive. Generally this is a good device but the manufacture ought to have done better in some areas such as using a faster port rather than USB 2.0.

  • The Good :
    easy to install, excellent distance performance
  • The Bad :
    speeds limited to 866Mbps, poor close range speeds, USB 2.0
Our score:
4 / 5
