In term of home use, how is this compare to the TP-LINK 5400 currently on sale at Amazon? I already have the ubiquiti access point, just need a better, faster and more security router than my crappy Business Netgear.

This is just gateway firewall and not wireless access point.

The TP-link is a router with built-in access point. This guy is just a router/security gateway. You would need to add a wireless solution of some sort to gain that part of it.

I have been personally using this USG at home with a Ubiquiti access point for ~8 months and absolutely love it. It is rock solid and has lots of nice features.

Do you pay Ubiquiti any annual fees? I love the Meraki router they have setup at my work, but I can't justify paying a licensing fee every 2 years.

There is no licensing fee, just purchase the hardware and software along with updates are free. Been on mine around a year. Setup is not as straightforward as consumer gear but you get much much better performance for half (or less) the money than high end consumer routers.

I use an edgerouter x with my APs ($50 all the time). This is part of the unifi family so I think it actually gets managed via the unifi controller similar to the APs vs standard local web (or command line via ssh) on the edgerouter. I'm not sure if you can get into the weeds as much though because of that (could be wrong there, the controller software gets updated frequently). So probably depends on your needs.

But I think you can hit command line with this too. It's supposedly the same hardware as the edgerouter lite, just a different route to configure it. I'm slightly tempted now as I already have a unifi cloud key and this would just roll right into it and single point of controlling everything. But it's 2x what I've already got and already have set up. Their stuff is solid though, I never need to reboot my router for anything unplanned.

Thank you all. That is why I go with business type setup at home as well. I want reliability and security over speed. I'll get this to tie together with my AP AC PRO.

Just did a quick search before ordering and saw the Ubiquiti ERLite-3 Edgemax EdgeRouter for $89.99. What is the difference between USG and EdgeRouter? Is it worth the little higher cost for the USG?

One difference is that the ER won't work with the same controller as the unifi APs. If you want to manage everything on the all in one dashboard you need USG.

How does this compare with pfSense? I run pfSense in a VM but that comes with its own set of issues when power outages occur and I can't get to vsphere.

Looking to move my PFSense VM out to physical hardware. Would this work in it's place for Load Balancing the dual WAN (ie I can route traffic to one or the other or set preference using gateways)? I also would like more of a graphical representation of the traffic on my networks. Looks like I need to do some reading,

USG is more user friendly fir it's centralized management. Ubiquiti is releasing a muli product management endpoint software as we speak for none USG products. They are rolling out features for it quarterly. So that's an option. I believe the USG requires the management software. The ER is web-based but also be managed by console. Unsure about the USG.

I prefer the ER as it seems a bit more purest but if you already have the USG control software, go with the USG or ho with personal preference or even price. Either of them wont do you wrong.
