What we have in .ac with ROS >
- no finer manual data-rates control
- no spectral scan
+ higher price
Also, SXT/LHG has 10/100mbps only port so even if you're lucky enough to get more than 100mbps over radio it is limited by fast ethernet port.

IMO the end goal is the lowest price possible for low-end high power/gain CPE.
If someone needs more than that there is Dynadish (gigabit ether, .ac radio).

True, that's why we're using almost exclusively 802.11n APs and CPEs.

We're also looking for something "new" to replace them in the future but that for sure won't be 802.11ac equipment.

i think sxt sg lite is a move in the rigth direction to be competitive for mikrotik in ptmp:
one drawback of mikrotik was limited and expensive options of cpe.

now we have a very competitive offer of CPE, with viable options for long distances:
sxt sq lite 5 16dbi 46us
disc lite 5 21 dbi 48 us
LHG5 24 dbi 59 us
LHG HP5 24 dbi 69 us
LHG XL HP5 27 dbi 79 us

special case
LDF 5 with 100cm satellite dish, 39 us + dish cost estimated on 60us = 99us for 33dbi

that gives us a spectrum of inexpensive devices to make viable to have routeros across all the network from core to cpe

The "Lite" in the name means exactly that. Another version will come soon. This is the lower cost model without "ac", when you need a longer link in a rural areas where there is barely any internet at all, so you don't care about AC speeds.

We have 100% access point in A/N/AC mode with mixed clients N/AC. The N clients (9300) works well with mixed mode AP but if you have good signal (<-50db) AC clients works much better. I hope to see soon the AC version of LDF/LHG

Does anyone have a link to an installation guide with pictures/video that shows how to properly ground this or similar products?

Some basics are here (unversal to all products):
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Grounding

You can attach grounding wire to metal ethernet connector, to the PCB board or to a special grounding screw if present. Also you can use a shielded cable and ground on the bottom of the tower.
