[UPDATE]New Logitec Router Breaks Aesthetics Barrier, Works Fast Too

By on March 31st, 2011 14:56 GMT

Routers aren't known for their looks, but this may actually change now that Logitec created one that isn't in any danger of just going by unnoticed, being one of the fastest on the market to date, not just stylish beyond expectations.

Normally, when thinking router, users imagine a box-like thing, possibly with smoothed out edges and maybe a shiny finish if it's a particularly high-end one.

Either way, routers aren't something that one can usually consider as having the potential to enhance the aesthetic value of a room.

Many even do their best to hide the thing in a drawer or behind other auxiliary devices, like the speakers, but this is not something that Logitec thinks will happen to its newest product.

In fact, the new router it developed has such a unique shape that it might just become a game changer if other start to get more inventive with their wireless solutions.

Simply put, Logitec held back nothing when it built the LAN-WH450N/GR, leading to a black, shiny, rectangular item reminiscent of a helicopter, of all things.

Basically, Logitec outfitted it with not one or two, but three antennae which are actually thicker than the body of the electronic itself.

Four Gigabit Ethernet ports are present, but its real worth lies in the theoretical maximum wireless throughput of 450 Mbps over 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi.

There is only one real disadvantage to this entire affair, and that is the unfortunate fact that only Japanese customers will be able to get a hold of it, at least at first.

With sales of the Logitec LAN-WH450N/GR scheduled to commence in the middle of April, the price will be of ¥19,000, the equivalent of $230.

Those sufficiently versed in the country's language can visit this product page for a direct look at all available data on this lean and thin invention.

UPDATE: Corrected company name misspelling to Logitec instead of Logitech.
