Wow......this is a good deal. I would have bought this instantly if I hadn't already bought the google mesh...I love that each pod or mesh point of these have ethernet ports on them, google really should have done that with theirs...

Have this and can say that it's been amazing! Main unit in basement and satellite on main, fully covers both main and 2nd. Very stable despite lots of devices connected. With the 5ghz back door connection between the two units the speeds are excellent.

That's super hot - paid $380 on BF and thought that was decent, if not hot. Wish I could undo that.

I have the rbk43 and I have to stay after using Asus for years, the orbi is a disappointing. The app is very basic, the web UI gives more options but less than Asus. Overall speeds are great when it works but stability is nowhere near any of the Asus routers I used.

Orbi does not do a good job of switching the client from one AP to another AP as you move around the house. Also at least a few times a week I'll have one client get horrible speeds while the rest are getting full speed. And it's not always the same client.

It's not a bad system but if I had to do it again I'd stick to Asus. Or maybe go for ubiquiti. I had bad experiences with D-Link as well. I set up a TP-link deco at a friend's house and that seems to be a better value and stable but I don't have long term experience.
Be a nice person and enjoy life

Yea i was only go for some cheaper 150$ router but for $200 open box it was a tough call to not grab the GT-AC5300 (was really only looking at RT-AC5300). Guess i will give this a shot to see how it goes

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

It has a dedicated wifi band for the backhaul so perfect if you can't wire it up. For best results wire them together but not necessary. I'm in the process of fishing wires to get them connected together
for the absolutee best speed throughout the house.

My experience with certain brands are as follow:

Stay away from D-link wireless routers, they're just trash if it's just wired switches or adapters they're fine.
TP link does not last, works well for 2-3 years then it just die, of course, this is just for their wireless routers, wired switches and adapters are fine as well.
Asus got the most bells and whistles, also seems to have a a lot of customization, hardware is decent, just doesn't seem to last as long as the netgear, I actually have dead asus routers
Netgear, the interface is not the most user friendly, but their product tend to last very long time, I still got some really old netgear routers/switch that are alive today. Also, netgear equipment had given me the least amount of grief out of all the others when it comes to reliability.
Linksys, all over the place, you get a few models that are really good, and you get some that are just outright trash, read the reviews carefully on this.

This rule apply to all brands, when there is a new firmware update, DO NOT update it immediately, give it a few months and see if there are issues with the update before getting it.
