After the release of the MT300A, I really love the idea of having colored cases for our routers. So much so that I’ve painted my own with some spray paint. However, I think it would be really great if GL-Inet sold their blue (and possibly more colors in the future!) cases, I’d be willing to get a blue case for my AR150. I personally feel this would be a wonderful option at checkout!
Actually we are having 4 colors and 4 different routers
White: AR150 (popular IoT devices)
Yellow: MT300N (cheap pocket routers)
Blue: MT300A (advanced private storage)
Black: AR300M (mini dual-band 802.11ac)
The yellow case is still not available so MT300N is in white case now. AR300M is not yet available.
The reason we haven’t provide color selection is that this will make things too complex. As routers are pre-assembled and we assign each color to each router. If you want free choice, then we will have 4x4=16 combinations. Then we also have PoE/Non-PoE, Internal Antenna/ External Antenna, Dual-band/single Band. If we provide all these choice we will have 32 to 64 combinations. This will kill us easily.
Maybe we can just sell cases so after you buy you change the case by yourself.
