Costco Wireless Devices

Some brands create custom products exclusively for sale at Costco that are feature/performance

limited versions of other products.

This is likely a way for Costco to offer products at a lower price without undercutting other retailers.

These exclusive products often receive inferior support and fewer firmware updates.
