ASUS RT-AC68U vs Linksys EA9500 (AC5400)

Analysis:

The ASUS RT-AC68U hasn't managed to earn a top spot in any roundups from sources that conduct trustworthy hands-on testing. Nevertheless, reviewers from sites, such as TrustedReviews, hardwarezone.com.sg, and PCmag all gave it a spot on their list.

Moving on to the Linksys EA9500 (AC5400): it was unable to reach the very top of any roundups from sources that conduct reliable and unbiased testing. Nonetheless, it still managed to impress reviewers from a number of such sites, like Technically Well, TechSpot, hardwarezone.com.sg, PCmag, and techadvisor.com, enough for them to include them on those lists.

We examined all of the review data that we could find and first took a look at sources that reviewed both of them, like hardwarezone.com.sg and PCmag, and found that they haven't shown a preference for either product.

Then we checked which sources liked these two Wi-Fi Routers best and found that the ASUS RT-AC68U got its highest, 9, review score from reviewers at TrustedReviews, whereas the Linksys EA9500 (AC5400) earned its best score of 9.4 from Technically Well.

Lastly, we averaged out all of the reviews scores that we could find on these two products and compared them to other Wi-Fi Routers on the market. We learned that both of them performed far better than most of their competitors - the overall review average earned by Wi-Fi Routers being 7.4 out of 10, whereas the ASUS RT-AC68U and Linksys EA9500 (AC5400) managed averages of 8.6 and 8.6 points, respectively.

Due to the difference in their prices, however, it's important to keep in mind that a direct ASUS RT-AC68U vs. Linksys EA9500 (AC5400) comparison might not be entirely fair - some sources don't take value for money into account when assigning their scores and therefore have a tendency to rate more premium products better.
