AC2200 offers more speed and therefor Netgear EX7300 is a better option.

Comparison of AX1800 – AX3600 Access Point

Below lists the AX1800 – AX3600 access points :-

Table by Visualizer

AX Access Points provides 1024 QAM support and hence the speed increases drastically.

AX1800, TP-Link EAP620HD is better option as it offers PoE ports with 12.5W PoE Budget. It is dual band router. D-Link DAP X2810 with 2×2 MIMO is the starting range from D-Link.

AX3600 is also a dual band AP but it is 8×8 MIMO supported AP. It offers 18.5W PoE Budget. Here, TP-Link EAP660HD also offers 2.5G port which is good to see.
