A gaming router, a cloud router line and various other wireless devices debut
D-Link is taking advantage of CES 2013 to introduce a new collection of wireless networking devices, many of which are Wi-Fi routers with or without support for dual-band transmissions.The number of new wireless routers at D-Link's booth in Las Vegas, Nevada, is high, too high to cover in minute detail, so we will focus on the most relevant items.
First off, D-Link has prepared the SharePort Go II (DIR-508L) cloud router, made for photographers, businessmen, travelers and families that need a convenient means of sharing files between iDevices and Android gadgets (wirelessly or via USB).
The D-Link SharePort Mobile app ships alongside this product, and buyers will also enjoy the ability to recharge mobile devices.
The SharePort even has an SD card slot for extra sharing and storage options.
The D-Link Gaming Router with Qualcomm StreamBoost technology (DGL-5500) is the second important device.
It offers Gigabit AC1300 wireless speeds and is, in D-Link's own terms, the company's most advanced gaming router to date, with intelligent bandwidth allocation and, thus, lag-free online gaming.
Of course, the presence or absence of lag is determined by the host server's load and quality as well, but at least owners of D-Link's DGL-5500 will be able to honestly say there is no problem on their end if any issues of this nature arise.
That leaves the D-link Wireless AC1750 Dual-Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-868L) and AC1200 Dual-Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-860L).
On a related note, D-Link has also introduced the Cloud Camera 1050 (DCS-931L) and Cloud Camera 1150 (DCS-933L).
D-Link will start shipping all of these devices this quarter or in April, for prices of $79.99 / 79.99 Euro to $169.99 / 169/99 Euro.
D-Link's Gaming Router (DGL-5500) is the only one whose price hasn't been released yet. The information will come out when shipments start.
