I've been looking for a right priced mesh system and this looks like it fits the bill.

I picked up the 2 pack for $75 on prime day. A couple of caveats for some users.

1) Only a single combined SSID for both spectrums.

2) Unable to see/modify advanced wireless settings (channel, channel width, etc.

3) No DMZ setting (does have port forwarding)

Those things aside, for the $75 I paid for two, I am very happy. Previously had an Archer C7 and due to location was having spotty coverage on one side of the house.

Setup for this was super easy, and it supports wired back haul that I plan on implementing on the future.

Price is only ok (I paid $140), but it's a great, reasonably priced mesh system. Coverage is awesome and transfer rates are good. App is easy for setup and monitoring.

Is this problematic for setting up a Plex server?

Not the best price around it regularly drops around $130ish. That being said I recommend this system to people who want mesh but are on a budget. Its way better than some of the big names, including google.

Any decent mesh systems that have usb ports usable for storage? I know Orbi has USB, but last I heard they will not work for storage, and the firmware has issues.

Even outside the home? I found to get to my Plex server when at my parents house I had to change settings on my router.

No actual Mesh kits have usb ports for storage, you would have to add your own device into the network with that functionality. If you want the make your own Mesh route then AI Mesh offers that functionality if you buy two Asus routers and enable their Mesh networking, this is the most powerful consumer grade Mesh you can get currently depending on the routers you choose. To be perfectly honest its a expensive ($400ish) but well worth it route if you want the best wifi throughput and capacities. The new netgear mesh kit RBK50 is the only prepackaged kit that comes close in performance, but still missing the usb port for storage.

For true no fiddling prepackaged Mesh kits the best well known and mostly cause of performance are the netgear offerings. Their AC2200 kit has been the highest performer since it came out, only to be currently surpassed by their AC300 kit. Orbi WiFi System (RBK50) AC3000 from netgear has almost double the capacity of its next closest competitor which funny enough is the previous AC2200 from the same company, thats how far ahead of the game they are in performance over the next one in line which would be the Linksys Velop Tri band system. I have not checked recently aka last few months about the newest offerings from Dlink and Zyxel but still pretty positive the above two are better.

Now not everyone needs this high level of performance which is where these awesome Tenda Nova kits come in, they for most house holds will far surpass most peoples needs. If you really do need or want the best mesh performance possible then you have to go the self construct route as I mentioned above to the previous poster, AI mesh right now from Asus has the best performance and highest capacity depending on the routers you chose.

Yeah, I just looked at my port fwd's and it's not listed. Plex (for me) was install and that's it, it just worked. If you want assistance, pm me and maybe I can help.

I bought these around $130 right after they came out. They do create a good and strong wireless mesh network that covers all 3 levels of our house well, but the routing functions and other features are simplistic and minimal. To the point that I now use a ASUS AC1900 as my "back-end" to handle the routing features (and also connect to USB devices) and connect the first cube in the MW6 system in bridge mode so that they are ONLY doing WiFi.

This sounds very appealing. So I can set this up IN ADDITION to my Archer C5400? I like that router, and don't want to lose it's connected USB drives. But I have a 1gb connection, and would like to get >400meg over my wifi. Currently I get 90-220meg.

I just turned the wifi off on my ASUS router to make it easier to manage and since I don't really need another network. This also lets me use assigned/static IPs and control individual devices better... Which was basic at best with the built-in routing functions.
