This past week, I bought the velop system and tried it. The range/speed is not really impressive at all. The real advantage of this is wireless.

I returned the one i bought and upgraded my router instead. I bought the asus ac88u and it provided much better range and speed on my 1500 square feet home.

Here is what I suggest based on the below condition.

Option 1

Under 2000 square feet home : Get a good router. I got the asus ac88u and got full speed 100/100 anywhere in my home. I also get signal out in the street.

Option 2 : 3000sqf+

If you can run ethernet, get two asus router and run them in AiMesh. This is a feature that Asus have. Allow you to use single SSID.
According to review, this can cover a 3000 square feet home. It depends on the layout of your home.

Option 3 ( wireless + large home)

You can go with these and give it a try.

Everyone's experience will be different. I have both the Orbi AC3000 3 satellite setup as well as this Velop 3 node system. The Orbi is slightly faster when it works but I have connectivity issues like many others because of new firmware updates pushing out new features. If my modem goes down and comes back up, my Orbi never reconnects. I have to manually reboot the Orbi system, where as my Velop system comes back online by itself.

Wow, that's a great price! I just scooped up the target clearance (2 nodes for 175) but this is still a great price!

Waiting for more feedback on this before I decide to pull the trigger on this or Orbi. Been researching the firmware updates on the Velop and it's not looking good. People with Velop or Orbi, please provide more feedback! Soon to be a homeowner and I need good network system ASAP.

Thanks for your feedback and the time writing this.

I did looked Into the router route and mesh it together but buying a compatible asus router is not cheap either. I want at least ac4400.

Based on people saying here, Orbi is the way to go.

I'll wait for more feedback.

Again, thanks for your time.

This is tempting. I'd be all over it only if I hadn't gotten a 3-pack samsung connect home from Lowe's clearance. I love my Samsung Connect Home - admittedly, the wifi is not as good as Velop, but I only have a 2700 sqft home and a 100 MBPS internet connection so wouldn't make any difference for me. I was able to get rid of my smartthings hub once I got the connect home and reselling that also helped.

I have a 2000sq ft house and I originally purchased the 2-pack Velop.
I have 2 floors in my house and upstairs was always super spotty and in some rooms 1 bar.
I hooked up 1 velop in office downstairs and one velop upstairs and it blanketed my upstairs.
I connected a desktop to the Gb port on the velop upstairs and I get 300Mbps out of it

I ended up buying a 3rd for my bottom floor to cover a back bedroom.

Worth 400? Probably not.

I have never tried another mesh competitor, but I would have to say that I am satisfied with this. I still dont have full 5 bar coverage in all of my home even with 3,. but the places I needed wifi, now have it.
