okay thanks mkx its probably safe to assume to look at similar models with the same chip.........
the top ranked powerlines - have QCA7500 (which came out in 2015)
Lesser ranked powerlines - have the older QCA7450 (circa 2014 ish)

So we are supposed to get excited about a product that came out in 2012 with some bells and whistles around it???
YOu can probably find consumer products with the hunk and junk performance of that chip in the junk bin or on ebay for about $5.

What is key about the QCA7450 and 7500 chips is the huge leap in performance due to better use of the electrical wiring which cleans up the connectivity in terms of cross circuit and general noise.
Wait, let me get my betamax out, polish the turd and sell it with an attached USB cable and a pOE port and brand it Mikrotik. ;-P
I'd rather manage rats than software. Follow my advice at your own risk! (Sob & mkx forced me to write that!)
