Great reviews everywhere including Amazon. Best price by far! I have been searching for a reasonable price on a product that WORKS. In for a 3 pack - thanks.

Yes it is refurbished but still carries a Full warranty from Luma. To mean these are the most important things - warranty and Factory refurbished. I will let everyone know, but I am expecting these to be like NEW

FYI these do not test very well compared to almost every other Mesh system, but far cheaper at this price.

I have Luma and have had it about a year. Some minor things, like a user gets stuck on a restriction and needs to be reset (4x this year one user) and initial setup took a bit, but overall it is invisible. It just works.

I got this about 10 days ago (through eBay, it arrived basically new in box still sealed) and have been struggling with reliable connections. I would be in the same room has a hub/node and signal quality would plummet and link speed would be sub 100 mbps on an 802.11ac device. I would toggle wifi and reconnect at >500 mbps. They sent a 8/24 firmware update that seemed to help the link speed but now my speed tests to ookla are never greater than 50-70 mbps (I pay for 500) and the Luma app maxes out around 250 mbps. Technical information is limited in the app, apparently Luma techs can see the wireless backhaul status and device information but none of that is available to the user. I can't even tell which node my device is currently connected to. I am constantly doubting my connection whenever I notices the slightest webpage lag.

Also add that the Android app is push notifications and dependent on Luma servers. When you are viewing your network status in the app it is not realtime and "refreshing" does not seem to initiate a new push to the servers. This actually was a problem when adding a new node, the app status was so out of date that is still indicated a valid internet connection when in reality the hub had lost power and the node I was connecting couldn't find it. There were no detailed error messages and I had to open a ticket for support to tell me that they couldn't see the hub. Once the hub/node is connected it has no LED indicators so a properly connected node versus a node with no power looks the same.

Huge headache on getting it setup and running. After I did get it running my IP cameras stopped working, there was no way to connect to them. Contacted tech support and they basically said try factory resetting the cameras. After many attempts, it still wouldn't work. At the end I just went back to my ac1900 router and cameras detected no problem. Can't say I would recommend this product

if you are in need of just in need of wifi without any hard wired connected devices, this is an ok solution. if you are like me and need both, I'd recommend something else
