Thanks for the heads up, I missed it on the prime day deal.
This is a great price, seems everywhere is selling it for $329
There was a warehouse deal used-very good for $213 too, probably an open box customer return.

Damn, good price.

But 2 nodes only.

I have 4 nodes atm providing coverage across my multiple floor house.

Any good for 1 Gbps connection ? Range wise I guess this should be ok for a 2 storey townhome ,1500 sqft?

This thing probably covers 4k sf. SHould cover you for gbps over 5Ghz.

Google is easier to setup but TP-Link is REALLY easy to set up. 5 Minutes and it's done. Google is great if you are part of the Google Cult and MUST have everything unified with Assistant.

I use two nodes for 4 storey 1800sq ft. Depends on your home but always buy wifi routers with a return policy!

Interesting, 4k sf at 1gbps on 2 of these things? These things are that much better than AC routers?

I have a TP_Link AC 1900 router and it's in the basement and of course, 2 floors up on a 1200 sf house it gets shit quality, like maybe my Internet is only 75Mbit/s and I might get 30Mbit/s

since I'm not familiar with all of this stuff... so mesh is much much powerful than the traditional routers?

Not much more powerful but the problem with wifi routers 99% of the time is your home. Your home has tons of interference, concrete, metal, electrical components, appliances that create dead zones or weak signals. Mesh distributes the signal to help eliminate those deadspots.

I've had powerful routers but there are dead zones in really specific spots around the house. Mesh solved it.

You're comparing a router 2 floors down (in the basement, at that) to a mesh system with an access point on the same floor you're on? Not really comparable.

In your cash, the router in your basement feeds the main floor mesh unit, which then feeds the top floor mesh unit. So, when you're on the top floor the signal is stronger vs. just having the router in the basement.

I don't have a mesh myself, but I think it's like having a router with multiple access points (or a repeater).

Mesh solutions usually have seamless roaming. (On a normal setup, if you move around your device will stick to whatever was the strongest signal at the time until it gets kicked off).

For someone that already has a decent router, instead of mesh, you can just add a second router as an AP. (You miss out on the roaming though)

I have this exact model with 3 nodes and I can honestly say that it is wort every penny. One on each floor and the coverage is amazing. Ditched the nighthawk ax150 or whatever router and it has been night and day difference. Great app as well, very user friendly. Had the whole thing up and running in like 15 mins. Can get signal in yard, driveway, while house etc

If you're meshing wirelessly (ie, not using a ethernet backhaul), you won't have 1 Gbps on the nodes. if you want 1gbps, on wifi, on a wireless mesh, you'll be looking for something like AX3000+

in theory yes. 1200gbps on the 5ghz band, but all the wifi overhead + the communication between the 2 nodes, I don't think you'd get more than 300-400mbps on it.

Oh, bother.

While I was reading up on it, the price went from $229 to $300. :(
