Do you know if the eero support separate SSID for 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz?

One issue I have with the Orbi is that I cannot do this manually (my old Apple and Netgear router support this). So what happen is that my Orbi will force 5Ghz capable device to connect to 2.4Ghz, even when I am only 25 feet away from the router. This slows down traffic a lot.

With other routers, I can specify 2 SSID (Wifi-2.4 and Wifi-5) and for my 5Ghz capable device (iPhone, iPad, Macbook, etc.), I added the Wifi-5 SSID while the rest uses Wifi-2.4 SSID. Works great.
eero supports a single SSID across the 2.4 Ghz and the two 5Ghz bands (eero pro). With Band Steering feature ON It works pretty well encouraging clients to move to 5 Ghz I have Apple and Android devices. It is still being refined and improved since some clients are reluctant to switch bands.

Do these support USB connected Hard Drives? I read a review that said they didn't, but that review was from 2017.
eero pro doesn't support usb connected hard drives. the usb-c port is for the usb-c pd power adapter. You would need to attach a NAS through the ethernet port or an ethernet switch

Anybody know if this is better/worse than the Google mesh? I bought both and will return one, just not sure of any real differences.

These are ranked at #6, but google's didn't make the top 10 (it was #11). They had a strong initial showing (google's) but didn't continue to get better whereas the software for these apparently keeps improving constantly and seems to have few problems. Orbi's are apparently stronger, but as you are seeing in this thread, a lot of people have constant problems with them, which many consider a disqualifier.

For those who ar emore price conscience, it may be worth checking this out:
D-Link COVR AC3900 Whole Home Wi-Fi System [amazon.com]

It came in #7, right under the eero, and is $120, easily it's best price and obviously much cheaper. can't vouch for it, just thought i'd toss it out.

Right? This is why I'm second guessing my eero purchase....I don't know what Amazon is going to do in the future with this and what additional pieces of my soul they are going to request next...and....and I don't want to give them anymore of it.... Frown

See my link above - it is presumably slightly better than the M5, which came in #9 of the top 10, but only by a little.
The M9, which is the update to the M5, is slightly better in theory than the eero.

Worth going for more than one Pro if I'm not going to hardwire it? Router is in the basement, that's where the Pro would go. Thinking I'd add a beacon on the first and second level. Otherwise I could spend the extra $50 for 2 pro's and a beacon.

Some of the Eero developers are in the r/eero SubReddit forum and as far as I read from their responses, Amazon is letting the company run mostly independently and do not have plans nor have used/accessed private user internet traffic data.

If they do, I may have to consider Ubiquity products

Yea, if they start snooping on my stuff anymore than I already let them, it will likely result in me listing these things for sale that same or next day.

Hmm... looks like eero won't have separate SSID.

Similar size house I'm moving into as well. I went with the pro and two beacons for $199. I think it would technically have more coverage, having the pro in your main area and two beacons upstairs.

Main different between the Pros and the Beacons if you're not going to hardware the Pros is that the Pros have a dedicated third radio for linking to each other.
