I post this everytime this deal comes up:

If you are adding to a existing Google puck mesh, it might not work out of the box due to the older firmware. You need to plug this onhub directly into your modem and let it update the firmware automatically; once it's updated you can add it to your mesh.

If you want easy meshing with Google Wifi this is a great option. Not something I would recommend using just by itself anymore, outclassed by a lot of newer access points these days, even at this price point.

For example? Which router would be a better choice at $55?

At $55 still very few if they are at retail pricing. This for being older is still a very good price and very good performance for a smaller household or a bigger if you plan on buying multiple to mesh with.

Exactly. For $55 from a good reseller you will not find anything better, unless it's a huge price mistake with no chance to actually ship.

Will those newer "access points" (this is a router) get routine updates from the manufacturer like the onhubs do?

I have 4 of these in a 6500 square foot house, 3 in a 2500 sqft 5 story house and 2 in a long skinny 1600 square foot house.

At the main or any non wired backhaul mesh router, I get the full 300Mb/s from my ISP. The 3 in 2500 has about 40 devices on it. Since the router has one port, all the wired stuff device to device internally gives me full gigabit. I can get very good speeds device to device wirelessly.

I'm sure other routers have higher benchmark speeds, but these get the job done, and they're set it and forget it.

One thing to note, the tp-link has a parabolic antenna to focus the signal in one direction more so than the other, which makes it ideal for corner or edge of house placement. The Asus onhub is a traditional 360 degree setup. So use these tp-links against corners or outside walls, and an asus in the middle of the house if you have a big place or lots of floors. They mesh with each other just fine.

They're also good for use with wireless capable devices that can take a wired connection where the devices wireless stinks (looking at YOU original xbox one), since mesh hubs have bigger antennae and more of them, and you can plug a gigabit switch into the mesh routers ethernet port. I get 3-4x the speed and ping times from using the onhubs than the internal wifi for a number of devices.

Yep agreed with your above.

The parabolic antenna points to the front (other side from where the power/network connections are).

For years I bought $300+ routers to get coverage in most of the house, albeit slow 2.4GHz in the parts furthest from the router. Then I had two of those in a row die a month or two out of warranty (bricked), so no more of those. Now I'm @ $55 to replace a node although I have a couple of preconfigured spare mesh tp-link routers already for those occasions when I need faster wifi or wireless connectivity to wired devices somewhere in the house. Haven't had one die so far, over 2.5 years.

My internet comes in on a corner on the downstairs main floor, so I have a tp-link there pointed at the opposite downstairs corner. I have an asus onhub on the next floor up in the middle. Then there's another tp link on the upstairs corner opposite the downstairs tp-link, pointed in the direction of the main router.

I get 5GHz signal throughout the house and since the upstairs one is sitting on a windowsill, I have to walk/drive about 1/4 mile from the house before I lose 2.4Ghz. Speeds between routers are "excellent" per the Home app.

You still get signal "behind" the router, but its built to focus much of the signal towards the "front".
