Any reason in terms of performance why I would get this over the ac1200 version for $150?

Would this be good enough for a 1.5gb connection?

This one is AX (not AC)... Wifi 6
So go with whether or not you need wifi 6

Yes. It should. I had it set up with it for a brief time before I moved (and now stuck with Rogers).

How does this compare with Google mesh?

I honestly didn't even consider Google mesh because of googles history of just....abandoning products. This was also cheaper. I had a Netgear r7000 before, which was great but they messed up the router with future firmwares whereas I had to downgrade. Tp-link was just next down the line for me, they make great switches and all those range extenders etc, so I bought this exact model a year ago.

I have one router in the basement, which feeds an Ethernet cable to the main floor which feeds another router wirelessly to extend to the backyard. Pretty easy UI, and no real complaints from me so far.

I tried eero before at the same time as well but that was just an annoying experience where I couldn't access the router at all without internet. All mesh routers seem to be the same but I can access tplink via web browser, so that's a small bonus.

Bandwidth wise: If you use wireless backhaul, m9 might do better as it'll use one of the 5ghz as a dedicated backhaul; If you use a wire to link them up, it should be better.

for range is 2 pack vs 3 packs, so you can split this one better. but at this price, might be good to consider the m9 3-pack refurb from b&h, I think it's around $210 shipped.

define good enough? it have a gigabit ethernet connection, so you won't be able to get 1.5gbps "in" to start with... but even if you could it's very unlikely to get real 1.5gbps "out" thru wifi, so that's that too.

I think eero 6 is dual band and eero 6 pro is triple band

You will connect this to Bell hub and turn off the bell’s Wi-Fi from the router configuration.

And then configure the mesh with TP link provided App.

Full instructions should be in the package

3 bands if you need wireless backhaul.
2 bands if you can wire backhaul.

I got this too during BF. For me the speeds were much better and I tried the Eero Wi-Fi 6 and the google nest Wi-Fi as well.

Yes, in short, "good enough".

In long, you're *never* going to that speed via wifi considering under laboratory testing, at 5ghz these things output at 1.2gbps. oh, and wired unless you agregate, no one line will go over 1gbps.
