I got the M5 3pack for my home and love it. Thinking of getting this M3 pack for my parent's house. Would it essentially work the same and be set it up the same? Cuz setup with the M5 was super easy

Would appreciate the opinions of anyone who would like to chime in on TP-Link Deco Whole Home Mesh WiFi System (Deco M3). Thank you!
I don't know about their mesh. Will tell you we have over a hundred IOT devices and this router couldn't handle it. We got Orbi mesh that's $300 right now at Costco. It's a great router if you don't have a lot of devices. Wide coverage. TP-Link customer service is worlds above Netgear. We haven't used it on the Orbi. We had a netgear router for three years until they put out some bad firmware. A lot of people had trouble with it after that and netgear was no help whatsoever.

I bought this from Amazon Treasure Truck for this price. It's not worth saving money for this over Eero (from the reviews on Eero - I just ordered one the other day). There are dead spots literally right next to the plug in receivers. No matter how much speed you pay for the M3 maxes out at 100 down. Customer support is frustrating to deal with when trying to solve these issues.
Hey can you post back and let us know how you like the eero. I went with orbi but still in return window. Couldn't decide. Devices drop occasionally but not enough to go into something unknown. Who knows about the eero reviews on Amazon...fact or fiction.

Deco surprised the heck out of me....significantly better reach vs my Ubiquit setup. Very happy, although nowhere near as advanced management as what Ubiquiti offers.
What'd you have? I've watched several videos by smart home guys on YouTube who did their own ubiquiti setup. Didn't look too hard but it never does until it is. Wasn't too sure so went with mesh.

Should I get a Mesh System or a Wifi 6 Router? Have a 2000 sqft home And no I dont have $699 for a Wifi 6 mesh system
My experience with Asus 1900 mesh wasn't that great. On the other hand, unless you are goning to change WIFI clients to WIF6 too, it is unlikely you will see much benefit. Even your existing WIFI clients can receive stronger signal from the new router, they may not have enough power to send the return signal back.

Could I use this for my parents to get WiFi across their house. They have a horrible time getting wifi on the far side of the house because of the concrete walls.
We have a 3500sf brick house with a detached brick three car garage. The rachio was at the furthest bay of the garage and this router was at the furthest possible point from there and it was always connected. Coverage isn't an issue with this...I could connect to my wifi two houses down. If too many IoT devices, they won't all connect.

I have the TP-Link M4 3-pack of tall cylinders. They work very well.
For Ubiquiti, I have a TON of their stuff. In-wall units, mesh units, USG, POE switches, and the 1st gen Cloud Controllers.

In actual commercial applications, I haven't had any problem with Ubiquiti. But for my home, I couldn't get the wireless Mesh or directional units to send a signal across the street to my neighbor. We switched hardware units, tried the Long Range AP, then the fancier AP, then the stock AP, then additional in-wall units....then adjusted the mesh antennas with one person on a ladder and me in the yard with the WiFiMan app trying to get the best signal. It was a cluster.

Then I just decided to try the Deco and it worked in 10 minutes. It was defeating/ revealing at the same time. And the signal is very, very good. I've never even noticed the handoff to other APs - it's that good.

Now I can't really administer much with the TP-Link Deco app. Sure, there *are* options, but very basic stuff. Not even a speed test is available for my version of Deco's. Which is fine, because at the end of the day, the signal is great and my elderly neighbor is getting wifi from me and saves $80/mo. (He's on a budget).

That is awesome of you to share with your senior neighbor. That is one good thing about netgear...you can go in and change settings not on the app of course. Same goes for this TP-Link. Appreciate the response from someone who knows more about this than I do...makes me feel better about going with mesh.
