Package and Accessories
The package is a typical ASUS package from the design. While a package isn’t as important as the product that is inside, brand recognition is important. You’ll be able to spot it as an ASUS product from afar, letting you know that there’s something worth a closer look.
The front of the box features a product shot of what’s inside along with the main feature highlights.
The rear side explains more in regards to functionality and setup, what you can use it for, and in which setups it will be useful.
The sides feature more detailed information about what’s inside. One of the sides has connectors and buttons explained. While it might seem trivial, a feature such as a power button might be a selling point for you. Not every repeater has that. Just as an example.
The other side has the specifications listed, letting you know what you purchase. There’s also a QR code which you can scan with your mobile to get more information about the product through ASUS’ official website.
There aren’t a lot of accessories inside the box, but there are a few. You get quick start guides along with warranty notices and an RJ45 Gigabit capable network cable.
