The wi-fi connectivity veterans at Asus introduced a brand new mesh WiFi machine nowadays known as Lyra Trio. The white-and-blue units are beautiful functionally very similar to ultimate yr’s Lyra machine: Lyra Trio comes as a three-pack (clearly), the 3 person routers operating in live performance to blanket a big space in WiFi protection. This yr’s fashion is less expensive, although: the Lyra Trio will retail for $299.99, versus the 2017 fashion, which went for $399.99 at release.

The routers are arrange and regulated via Asus’s Lyra app, and the corporate says the method does not require a PC at any level. They have got the entire identical bells and whistles as ultimate yr’s set: parental controls, Development Micro safety, the entire 9.

The set takes some aesthetic cues from the unique Lyra machine, with a fab colour palette and not one of the robot vibe and tough strains present in Asus’s conventional routers. Lyra Trio seems to be pleasant, despite the fact that its colours and curves are more or less evocative of an equipment you’ll need to pour water into.

If I did not know what those have been, I might be expecting them to shoot steam.

At this manner issue and value level, an obtrusive comparability is to Google Wifi, which has a in a similar way approachable look and in addition introduced at $299.99—despite the fact that it may be discovered less expensive just about anyplace now. Asus’s providing purports to have higher protection, although: five,400 sq. toes to Google‘s four,500.

Lyra Trio is to be had for pre-order on Amazon and is ready to unencumber on Might 1.
