Unless there is a huge database of supported zigbee devices that functionality would be useless pretty much. I guess it's not a bad price for a 3-pack Wi-Fi mesh system even forgetting about the zigbee..

I bought a 3 pack of Google WiFi and have had continuous issues with internet failing for random devices. I bought that on Amazon so of course I'm SOL on returning it.

I want to go with Ubiquiti equipment but I don't want to buy something that I can't return if it is garbage. Sometimes issues aren't discovered during the return period.

Do you know if these are better than Google WiFi?

Yes they are. This is one of the best high end mesh systems available and a great deal at this price. My only personal hesitation is the wifi6 stuff coming out later this year.

I am a very happy owner of the Deco M5, but if I were in the market today, I would get this M9 instead.

I bought the Orbi Rbk53 and it was awesome at first but now I'm having issues. Considering getting this system since I love all of my other TP-Link stuff. Anyone have experience or comparison with Orbi vs M9??

Thank you! I pulled the trigger. I love Costco's return policy. Not to abuse it.. But just to be realistic with things. 15/30 day return windows are not good for me.

We briefly owned the Orbi (Rbk23) about 18 months ago but returned it because, at that time, Orbi's firmware was garbage. I have heard that since it has gotten better. Maybe not true?

Instead of the Orbi, we bought the Deco M5.

With M5, we have had ZERO trouble from the moment it turned on. It has been the most trouble-free technology hardware that we have ever owned.

Good going. We bought our M5 from Costco too. What with the very generous return policy and the added warranty, you are pretty much risk free buying from Costco.

Same, m5 is working great.
However, the antivirus I hear maybe free for only 3 years. Anyone knows ?

You are correct about that.

And the antivirus part goes away if you run the Deco in the access point mode.

Thanks OP!

For anyone wondering if these are miracle devices, they are not. I purchased this when it was posted a few months back. We have a 4500 sq ft three story house and the three units did not provide enough coverage. I ordered another three a few days ago. I had about the same coverage with our AirPort Extreme and two airport expresses that were hardwired. Hopefully having 6 total will do the trick.

It is possible there might be too many hops that slows the internet down with 6 units. However, add Ethernet backhaul to all 6 units with a gigabit switch and it should improve a lot. Ethernet Backhaul is the key to having a faster and better mesh if you can go this route.

Interesting. I have a friend who says that his 5,500sq-ft house is adequately covered with just three Google Wi-Fi units. I know that he uses the Ethernet backhaul for his Google Wi-Fi. It may also be that his house is particularly porous to the signals.

Had rbk53 for 1 week. 3 drop connection with modem. So will return orbi and try this one.
