Asus RT-N16 Unboxing

Posted By Joe Kelly On August 29, 2010 @ 11:22 pm In Unboxings | Comments Disabled

In this video, I unbox the Asus RT-N16 Wireless-N Gigabit Router. I purchased the RT-N16 from ncix.com [1] in August, 2010 and paid around $100 (Canadian).

Back January 2010, SmallNetBuilder.com reviewed [2] the RT-N16. According to that review, here’s the RT-N16′s hardware specs:

  • Single band Wireless-N networking in the 2.4 GHz range
  • Gigabit WAN and LAN ports
  • Broadcom BCM4718 processor running at 533 Mhz
  • 128MB of RAM
  • 32 MB of flash
  • 2 USB2 ports
  • 3 external antennas

For the price I paid, those are excellent specs indeed! By comparison, consider the classic LinkSys WRT54GL, which has only 16 MB RAM, 4 MB flash, a 200 MHz processor, wireless-G networking, 10/100 Mbps wired networking and no USB ports. The nifty Netgear WNR3500L [3] comes a lot closer to the RT-N16, with similar specs in most categories, but falls short in the RAM and flash categories, with only 64MB and 8MB, respectively. For hardware specs, you can’t do much better than the RT-N16, unless you pay a lot more for something like an Alix [4] or a Soekris [5] (both of which are excellent, by the way).

Anyway, without further ado, here is my RT-N16 unboxing video:
