Who? What? If you live under a rock when it comes to enterprise wi-fi, then you might not know of Ubiquiti or their UniFi lineup. But if you do know of UniFi, then the FlexHD presents a unique new form factor.
Shaped like a slightly taller Coke can, the FlexHD offers all of the same 802.11ac Wave 2 goodness we’ve come to expect from the UniFi product line. It does however beg questions about mounting. It doesn’t look like something you’d mount on a ceiling or wall. But reality is, Ubiquiti is on the case and offer 4 different mounting options.
With the basics out of the way, how much will it cost. Well, this is a sticking point for me. I like unobtrusive AP’s that sit flat against the ceiling. The cost effective UniFi offering there is the NanoHD coming in at $179 USD. Unfortunately, the FlexHD with its unique form factor comes in at that exact same price point – $179 USD. If it had been cheaper, I would opt for it over the NanoHD, but for the same price, I’m inclined to shy away from the FlexHD…but that’s based purely on superficial judgement.
