Given the direction wifi is heading, 802.11ac seems to be where it's at. Apple has out 802.11ac in their latest AirPort Extreme along with their MacBook Air and I'm sure all their future devices. Cisco, Netgear, Buffalo have followed suit. Long story short, 802.11ac has phenomenal range and works well over the 5ghz less cluttered/noisy spectrum and the bandwidth allocation is incredible - more than most of my hard wired network devices. I'm happy I made the swtich and I suspect over time most folks will as well. If Dropcam wants to continue to be ahead of the curve, may I suggest placing 802.11ac into their next camera iteration. I wish it could be as simple as a firmware update for my current dropcams, but sadly, I get that it won't be and I'll have to buy more. Maybe it'll create a nice secondary market for older Dropcam HD's and dropcam will revel in the success of selling a whole new line of cameras. Pretty please.
