I don't get why people are so excited about this Ubiquiti equipment. Setup is a nightmare even for an IT professional who has done this countless times upgrading to other equipment over the years, the controller software isn't easy to navigate or helpful in many cases, and the results don't outperform easier to configure/operate Netgear setups.

I can see how this stuff might save management time if you're a contractor rolling out larger networks at schools, hotels, or small businesses, but I thought most people here on Slickdeals were home users? And this stuff just isn't better than Netgear for that purpose. So I don't understand the popularity of these threads.

Be warned.
Setting up Ubiquiti is a nightmare? Is this a joke? Even with little to no networking knowledge/experience, once you get the controller up and going it's super easy to provision and deploy.

Try setting up Mikrotik, Juniper, Cisco, etc... Mr. "IT professional" lol

Setup was shockingly easy and I'm and IT pro.

I really wish they made an affordable 8-port router. All the ones I see are 5-port or lower.

Just plug in a network switch into one of the router's Ethernet ports, and you instantly have as many ports as you need. You can get really cheap unmanaged switches in 5, 8, 16, and 24 port configurations- which is probably what you would want if you want to just plug and play and get more Ethernet ports working. For example, the Netgear GS108 or TP Link TL-SG108.

Setup of the USG is pretty easy. Setup of the very similar but still different enough ERLITE-3 can be difficult.

This stuff CAN be a nightmare if you don't do certain things exactly how this system wants them to be. And when a device fails to adopt it won't give a detailed explanation as to why. It will just fail to adopt.

A home networking solution just shouldn't be this way. Most people here on Slickdeals are better off with Netgear/Asus which are truly plug and play and much more user friendly than Ubiquiti, regardless of what you think is "super easy to provision."

Fact is, even for someone here on Slickdeals who wants the latest greatest home networking gear, the Netgear X10 will be easier to setup and more suitable for their home network.

This needed to be said as there have been so many Ubiquiti threads on SD recently and it's just not the best choice for most people here.
