Amazon is bundling the TP-Link AC5400X and the Echo DOT Charcoal and chopping off $79.99 from the total price. \n \nThe Archer is widely considered as one of the best gaming routes in the market today.

This is one of TP-Link’s first forays in high-end gear as the company has been serving the low- and mid-segments. \n \nFortunately, the company has managed to successfully upscale and compete with the best gaming routers out there. \n \nAmong the features of the TP-Link Archer include: \n \n- 1 GB of RAM \n- Ethernet WAN port (1 GB) \n- USB 3.0 ports (2x) \n- eMMC storage (16 GB) \n- External antennas \n- IFTT \n- Smart Connect \n- Bluetooth \n \nTrend Micro is also quite secure. It features three functions that you can choose for an added security layer. One is the content filter to block malicious and suspicious content. The second toggle is the prevention system, which will thwart any attempt at intrusion. Finally, the quarantine system, which effectively isolates the infected file and protecting the other files. \n \nYou can also blacklist other devices in the network so they can’t access your files. \n \nMeanwhile, the third-generation Echo DOT is being sold separately at $49.99. However, Amazon deals chopped off 10 bucks from the original price. \n \nThe Echo DOT is one of Amazon’s most popular smart speakers.
