Would buying an R7000 on Amazon from the US work in another country?

Planning to buy R7000 on Amazon because its much cheaper than buying it here in Malaysia. The thing is, is the router guarenteed to work perfectly here if its from the US?

Two things to consider:

  • the US device will probably come with a 120 volt power supply
  • wifi regulations in the USA mean that you may not be able to change the region for your location

 

Just another user.

Not advisable. You're from Asia and you should get an Asian R7000.

 

First there are more wifi channels available in an asian regioned R7000. Also, there is a limitation to the signal strength level of wifi in the US which means US R7000s have lower wifi signal strength compared to other regioned R7000s.

 

If you want to look for a cheap R7000, go to HK. The R7000 prices there are at the level of US prices and maybe even a bit lower.
