Is this overkill for a 2000 sq. ft house? Moving in a couple of weeks and been searching for a new router. Thanks!

Awesome deal. This is $36 less than when I got this kit a few days ago for $286 - $30 coupon. What to do?

This is tempting. I probably only need two pods. Maybe I can sell the third.

I need wifi that will give me 300meg+ when 30-40 feet away from main router/modem.

From the reviews I have seen, Google wifi may be easier to setup and more stable, while Orbi is faster and has better range.

Thing is with Orbi I think you really want the original RBK50 model, as it is faster.

Don't do it. This router will ruin your life. I wasted $400 on the higher end model, but Netgear has NERFED this router via forced firmware updates.

Read the Orbi forums.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

In fairness, I think all the mesh wifi systems have their share of horror stories. If your Oribs are that bad, you should ebay or donate them and try a different system.

If I recall, the Google system was a mess in the early days, but now it seems like people like it.

I am only here to add this comment and confirm - DO NOT BUY A NETGEAR ROUTER. WHY????? Well, as SlickDemigod said, the firmware has bricked a lot of routers. Here's where that gets fun! You but a router from netgear, you get a 1 year warranty, Something goes wrong, like this firmware, or you just have an issue, which is possible, that is covered by your warranty. Well, you are only allowed to use support for 90 days from purchase, and after that you CANNOT get email/phone/text support. Without an RMA, you CANNOT send in a defective unit. Without support, you cannot get an RMA. You have to purchase technical supportm 6 months costs $89.99 for me. So to get a bricked satellite replaced (if they will do it) I have to pay $89.99 to even speak to them to see if they will replace it after owning it for 6 months. To add icing to this sh__ cake, i spent almost 7 hours on hold to be told this. I AM NOT STRECTHING THE TRUTH one bit. As for me, I will NEVER EVER purchase NETGEAR again, and it is my personal duty to inform others of this blatant ripoff scam they are pulling. So, yeah when it works, its good, but STAY AWAY, it is NOT worth it.

How did the router ruin your life? Do you have an internet connected pacemaker?

Come to think of it, I had Netgear firmware brink a Nighthawk R8000. I now use TP Link and like it a lot. I just wish I could better utilize my 1gb connection over wifi. Which is why I am considering a mesh setup.

If you have wired connections you are better by adding access point over mesh network. Mesh network is essentially helpful where access points cannot be set.
