Great price on a three pack! Sell one of the satellites if you only need two.

I wonder why the down votes? Seems like a pretty good deal to me for the rbk33 ya it's not rbk50 but still... I've been wanting to get the orbi for a whole now but I've read so many bad connection drop stories.

Main difference I've read about is rbk50 helps with connections over 150mbs anything else? What have you considered besides orbi?

Anything that is tri-band with a dedicated backhaul I suppose I just figured Orbi was one of the better ones out there but I'm open for any suggestions as far as performance reliability and ease-of-use I suppose

I have this kit and I do not like it. The satellites always continuously disconnect, and two of my Android devices always get booted off. I also had an LG Smart TV that would not connect over Wi-Fi, and a laptop that would continuously disconnect for 10 seconds every 20 minutes. Never had this problem with any other router the same home setup of devices.

In other threads...people have mentioned that too many satellites can cause interference with themselves and that removing one satellite resolved the issue.

You should probably try that unless you have a really big house.

I've had the RBS50 with two satellites for 3 months now. Haven't had a single issue. It is smoking fast and would definately recommend it.

There have been issues with Android, but believe that is Android, not the Orbi system. I am an apple household, with ip camera's, smart doorbell and Roku's throughout the house and everything just works great.

I have the rbs50 with one satellite at my house, and did Plume at my Dad's house.

I like both - for ease of use, simple controls, no need for parental features - Plume is very good for the novice. (Plus wired backhaul support built in - just now added to Orbi)

I did Orbi as that I wanted more controls on the setup. dhcp range, port forwarding, vpn, etc. So Orbi has better options for advanced features.

Both have been working very well for over 4 months now. Would recommend either one.

I have three Orbi's in my house and also have an LG TV, and have not had any issues. Have you tried repositioning the satellites? This shouldn't be needed, but it is worth a try.
