Ubiquiti is now offering its AmpliFi Alien Wi-Fi 6 Mesh Router for $279 shipped. Marking the very first discount of the year, not to mention an all-around rare markdown in any case, today’s offer amounts to $100 in savings from the usual $379 price tag and is a new all-time low. AmpliFi Alien arrives as a more consumer-friendly alternative to the brand’s UniFi ecosystem, delivering Wi-Fi 6 support alongside a unique design. Its Tri-Band connectivity delivers over 7.6Gb/s of networking throughput and added mesh support means two can be paired together. Though the most unique feature surely has to be the built-in 4.7-inch touchscreen which lets you monitor live network stats, adjust settings, and more.
