the new devices are been restricted to keep the wifi regulators happy

Perhaps third party firmware will solve this issue for users (not me obviously!)

Asus are also making it harder to flash 3rd party firmware as well.

None of the DSL variants are compatible with dd-wrt/open-wrt/merlin/tomato etc. Only the RT variants can be flashed with 3rd party firmware.

Looks like the DSL-AC88U will be priced quite reasonably compared to the competition at 220

There's more chance of me marrying Theresa May and having cute triplets by natural methods than there is of Asus pricing the DSL-AC88U at 220 notes. The RT version is priced between 200-250 so the DSL model should cost at least 300 when first released. As an example, look at how much the recently released Netgear D8500 costs...

Seems like someone got hold of a DSL-AC88U from PC World for 209.

If true, looks like a decent price.

It will be interesting to hear how they get on with it.
What are people's thoughts on stability with previous devices. Is it chooser related, firmware issues or both?
Personally, I've never read of glowing reports of any Asus DSL labelled device myself.

Price already under 200.  Once firmware matures this will be an awesome choice.

I have an ASUS DSL-AC88U, so far it has been the best combined VDSL router I have ever owned, going on holiday tomorrow but will post some stats when I get back to compare versus the Netgear D7000 I had before.

I look forward to the comparison.

Slight amendment needed re the Billion BiPAC 8800NL R2 specs. It has 1GbE port (the WAN port) and 4 Mbit (10/100) switched ports. Details here: http://uk.billion.com/Business%7CSoHo/xDSL%20Wireless%20AP%20Series/BiPAC%208800NL%20R2

might be interesting to note which of these supports the full 1500 mtu (using RFC4638).
I've just got this working on a BT homehub 5 with LEDE and a direct vdsl connection.
I found that the ECI modem I was using was (permenently) limited to 1500 bytes on ethernet, and so mtu=1500 could never be achieved with this in the way as the ethernet must support 1508.  (the HH5 also was limited to 1500 until I patched the ethernet driver, but the vdsl driver is already patched).

(mtu of 1500 is really quite important if you run any kind of service behind the router, because MTU discovery on the general internet has some issues. If you are mainly focused on outgoing, then it's less of an issue, but still a nice-to-have if your ISP supports if.  BT Openreach FTTC lines are said to support it throughout the UK).
