The TP-Link Deco M4 Mesh Wifi system (newest model) is up on Amazon with a $20 clippable coupon, plus you can stack it with the 10% off code from a YouTube reviewer. Code is 10UNLOCKER

Take the 179.99 original pricetag down $38 - and makes it a steal for a three point mesh system. (If you can do ethernet backhaul, this is the one to get)

Deco m5 owner here, id say after a lot of research that the Decos are probably the best value mesh routers on the market.

This may be a stupid question, but why would you want to do ethernet backhaul vs wireless backhaul? Couldn't you just do a wired access point instead if you had a way of running cable?

These are essentially WAP's.

I know, but OP said "If you can do ethernet backhaul, this is the one to get", so wondering why someone would do that vs wireless?

Speed like guy above said, but also these are only AC1200 so if you have a wired backhaul you won't lose as much compared to competitors where it might make more sense to have a AC2XX where you don't have as much loss.

I am am considering this and I can do a wired backhaul, but I am also considering a ubiquity setup.

So you want to pay 3X as much to get the same performance with Ubiquity, lol.

Also the M5 is better if your deciding between the two for everyone else.

Yes all of this is true. The biggest benefit to the TP-Link systems is the ability to tweak advanced settings thru the app.

Google WiFi is AC1200 as well, but this is about $100 cheaper. Definitely a bargain

Ac1200 seems slow to me, I know this has 3 access points vs 1 but I don't know how future proof this is....

I've had a TP-Link Archer C3200 for a couple years. Would getting this be a significant upgrade for the home? Not too savvy on routers.

After a clipped "coupon" the M5 three pack is $155. Anyone have opinions on whether it is worth it to pay the extra $14 to get the M5?

Honestly, I'm not 100% sure exactly. I have heard that the M5 has some boosted components inside, but I also heard that the M4 makes up for it with more types of access(?). Something about the types of WiFi or etc supported.

What I DO know (lol) is that the M4 is newer (Released this spring) and has a totally redesigned form factor (probably for a good reason). They are both around $175 on Amazon right now with $20 off clippable coupons, but the extra 10% promo only works with the M4. I just received mine today, and I'm getting it all set up this weekend - so if you'd like, I'll let you know how it compares to the Google Wifi I'm returning.
