To save you the click, this is for the AC2200, not the AC3000.

Which one is better? Not sure what to choose: AC2200 3 pack for $199 or AC3000 2 pack for $237.99?

I originally purchased the AC2200 3-pack, but after reading other reviews, I went with the faster and more capable AC3000.

I have a 3-story house, and thought the 3-pack would work better, but I think the 2-pack AC3000 will work best for my solution (especially in the long term). I have a mostly square house, so I'm hoping the satellite will cover the first floor/garage/patio and the router will cover 2nd and 3rd floor.

I second this. The Orbi AC3000 vs the Google Mesh Wifi? I have a Lowe's in store pickup waiting for me of the Google Mesh Wifi 3 pack, but may cancel if the Netgear Orbi 2200 or 3000 gets better reviews

I have the 3 pack AC3000 for about a year and a half. 4300sf 2 story home, 2 units downstairs and 1 upstairs. What a difference! Ive been through probably 4 different routers before this. None compare. Always resetting and no service upstairs. Not anymore. We can now stream movies upstairs in the theater room while my boys are streaming games downstairs.

The netgear is faster (2200 or 3000 vs 1200) if that matters to you. If you're just doing light streaming / browsing you likely wouldn't notice the difference.

The netgear has 4 ethernet ports while the Google Wifi only has 2 (1 for the cable modem, 1 to plug something in), so if you wire things into your network that may be a consideration as well.

Google's setup is a bit more simplified, while Netgear's gives you some more options.

So, for casual use, Google's is probably fine. If you're a heavy user and/or want to be able to tweak any and all options, the Netgear may be worth the added cost.

In Google WiFi each unit can act on its own (in case of failure) while orbi is more of master-slave config. Bought Google WiFi couple days ago and couldn't be happier.

I originally had the ac3000 but my girl thought I paid too much so I returned it. A few months back got a good deal on the 2200. I am getting the exact same speeds. The 3000 can handle more devices at the exact same moment but at least with a 300Mb connection both sets do the same speed.

So when comparing the 2 3000's vs the 3 2200's it comes down to are you going to have 30 devices going all at the same time or would you prefer better coverage.

Google WiFi is utter trash. Managed through a very limited app only (no admin webpage), no way to get the main router to renew release and renew its WAN IP (which totally screwed me over when I was assigned a dynamic IP through my ISP that had a threat level associated with it), and Google has accidentally remote wiped them before. Only decent thing about it is the coverage. Biggest tech purchase regret of the past year. Avoid.

Keep refreshing it I thought the same thing when I went to order one for my boss. I thought I was going to get fired for telling him about this good deal and it being out of stock. Refreshed a couple times and it came back.
