Good price.

Hardwire Unifi AP via POE port and you have a nice little home network setup.

I love my unifi stuff but if this is what you are after the edge router with one poe connection is more than enough and will be less than half the price of this thing. If you have more than one AP then this makes sense, or if you have other devices that can be powered by this (thinking a switch here) then i think this fits.
Unifi is definitely the way to go though!

ERPOE-5 has no OpenWRT support. And the original EdgeOS has buildin artificial limits. Without OpenWRT there is no way to unlock its full power.

I have an edge router X with SFP, ubiquiti cloud key gen 2, unifi APs UAC Pro, and the AP LR, and the POE 16- port switch, Ubiquiti G3 cameras and a bunch of other shit I'm not going to advertise.

It's by far the most advanced and powerful all encompassing system out there. I haven't had to reboot my system in over 1324 days...that's over 3 years of up time, and the reboot only happened because I had to hook it up to a UPS batter backup.

I'm able to cofmeotsble VPN, have segregate SSIDs and networks, I'm able to set throttle limits, VLAN tagging is a breeze, doing network penetration tests my results score higher with this setup than my previous setups with Netgear with OpenWRT...

You don't need OpenWRT support because everything can be coded in Linux.

Now if you aren't comfortable with Linux then I can see this product won't be suited for you.

Well, what is your LAN<->WAN throughput with active SQM set to cake?
EdgeOS limiting it to 100mbps, while OpenWRT easily handle 200 mbps.
And you know?, even in OpenWRT you can use command line to configure it.

Out of curiosity, what are some of the artificial limits in EdgeOS that you are aware of that would not be there with OpenWRT?

I've been using an ER-X for a number of years now and I've been pretty happy with it, but curious on what else it might be missing.

The steep learning curve for EdgeOS make the price meh.

I'd rather build a pfsense if I'm paying $150+.

See my post above. I tried edgeX with EdgeOS and then intalled OpenWRT, and will never look back.

Reminder that this is for either small businesses or "homelabs" (networking/IT training). Average person doesn't really benefit from this. You can install one or two APs on any router/switch because they come with PoE adapters and after it's running you don't need any "cloud" software to actively manage regular operations.

Paid around the same price for this router back in 2016. The ERPoE-5 is super stable, and the GUI is pretty easy to use for those that don't want configure from command line. I'm using a PoE AP with it too, and haven't touched it in months. The only time I need to touch the router or AP, is when I perform a firmware update.

It definitely trickier to use than most consumer model routers, but the community forum is pretty active and there's lots of tips and tricks on how to configure things.

I don't have Edge but I have USG.
USG can do 1Gbps

Once again, 1Gbps with QoS enabled? I do not think so, only x86 devices can do that

Architecture has nothing to do with the number of packets than can be handled.
No these boxes do not do 1Gbps with QOS
my ER-4 does around 500mbit with QOS

This thing outputs passive POE but I was under the impression Ubiquity gear uses 802.1af

More then likely not, what QoS will benefit for internut? ISP will not value your QoS !
However I do CoS in my lan.
I have IoT and Guest network, where I doing CoS just fine.
