Review & Testing Status
We purchased this antenna in 2015 at the original price of $82.99. Over the years it went through several price increases, up to as much as $400. It performed very well in our past head-to-head testing, but for the price point we didn't feel like it was worth considering.
However, in late 2019, WirEng drastically reduced the price - to $98! At that price point we consider this antenna to be a worthwhile so we purchased two for some active testing in a mock-MIMO configuration. And then pricing went back up again.
