If you've read their forums you've likely seen my posts. I have both this kit, a USG 3 and an 8 port switch. Also have FiOS GB service. It's nice gear, reliable with a pretty UI, but it comes nowhere close to my internet speed. This kit in particular, it's lucky to get clients past 200 Mb/s.

It is very easy to set up and very reliable, so if speed isn't your primary concern, this will serve you well. I think it's overpriced, though.

Nice deal. I just got these two weeks ago for just over $300. I don't have google wifi to compare with, but these have been quite nice for home use. I was using Cisco enterprise APs, but they don't play nice with home IoT and some consumer gadgets. Ubiquiti APs have been well liked by the other WiFi guys I work with. These are very consumer oriented (home router, easy UI, etc) unlike their other models, and they've been working very well for me in bridge mode (AP/no router mode).

This is a great product but I read they had issues getting true gigabit speeds using it (wan and lan). Not sure if that is resolved yet or not.

I have multiple ubnt products and all are amazing.

I love Ubiquiti products. I have this same set on my 2 story house (6rooms, 2 garage, big backyard) and had absolutely no issues of any kind and they are easy to install.

I get a very stable my maximum (fiber optic) internet speed of 50mbps 3-4ms all around the house (of course I manage to locate the mesh antennas very strategic for optimum performance).

This is definitely a good price. I'm tempted to return the Orbi RBK53 I picked up a week ago to try these. But I might not as they are only dual band instead of tri band.

Speed is the primary reason I opted to pick up the Orbi RBK53 set recently. That and reviews point to QC issues. Otherwise I've heard great things about this kit and I'm still considering trying it out just for range. I have an old house with thick plaster walls, and my 2nd satellite is in a detached garage so I can cover my property, that goes over 250' behind the house. I think range is really where this kit shines, not in speed.

The range is definitely outstanding. And it's very reliable, rock solid. No reboots or other nonsense needed. The only disappointment is speed, and again, if you're not doing anything really heavy with it, the speeds it accomplishes should be just fine.

In my case, where I have a lot of streaming and a heavy duty internet connection, it's disappointing to see it top out where it does.

It's also kind of a PITA to configure to run as a bridge only, as you lose some of the features that they advertise (namely guest network access). There are workarounds, but they're not pretty. Considering I'm running this behind a USG for FW services, that's disappointing.

Last nit, which would only affect people who don't have Ubiquiti kit, is the fact that this doesn't integrate to their latest UI like their other products do. I'm half tempted to rip it out and replace it with UAPs for that reason alone, although IMO it's more cosmetic than anything else (the UI still tells me everything I need to know about clients).

Bought this near the beginning of the year for my Dad's new home. They were having all kinds of signal problems (possibly from the foil lined insulation and noise dampening products used in the walls), They have had great luck with these units and it easily covers their 3000 sq/ft multi-level home. Base is installed in the utility room in the center of the basement, an AP in the 1st floor (also covering the 3rd floor area) and the other in the middle of the 2nd floor area.

When I visit I just pull up the app, make sure it's updated, and run a speed-test so they can complain to their crappy ISP and show a history of their 3/1 service.

If I didn't like my pfsense setup, I'd happily move over to this.

Velop and Orbi both have the option to hardwire the backhaul link which is a much better option if you house is prewired.

Plus Orbi I believe is the only one to use a dedicated frequency band for the backhaul over WiFi which would reduce interference and lag.

Orbi and eero are the only ones that dont lose speed between nodes
