It's really great if you need that 3rd point. I had been doing research for a couple of weeks and ended up with this. Won't arrive for a few days so can't comment on how it works yet. I think you can easily find the packages with 2 points for $300 or a little less. But the 4 packs are more rare and adding an extender by itself to a 3 pack at other stores adds $129.

The new mesh units, while they have assistant, they don't have ethernet ports, like the first gen google wifis. Only the new router unit has ethernet ports.

I just bought both of these to see which works better in my house. I tried adding two Unifi UAP-AC-LR (one at a time, 2 floors away from each other) to replace my ASUS dual router/AP setup... horrible experience with Unifi. Wasted 10+ hours. All the Unifi fanboys convinced me to get it. I'm a technologist , and near network expert too. Not to try the Mesh 'thang' to see it that helps.

Costco for about the same $...

I only need 2 points, do you think I can sell the third points on eBay or something for 100?

Do the wifi points slow the speeds down at all? Theoretically

I received mine today. It's actually 2 individually boxed items that show up. There is one box that is the Nest Wifi "Router and 2 points", and a second box that is the Nest Wifi "Add-on point". So, it appears the point is totally separate and could be sold as such on eBay if you wanted.

the orbi 6 is the only one i'd consider as an alternative and while the numbers sound great most homes simply dont need 800mbps of throughput. Also, netgear as a company simply stinks all around. their nighthawk routers were terrible, and coupled with their poor firmware updates and support, meh.

As a network professional it sounds sort of cool to have that kind of expansive network at home, except that most people are not even getting that kind of throughput to the internet. for example, I have 200mbps down, and 10mbps up.

It's all gimmicky -- most important for good service at home is to have adequate coverage so there arent any drops or disconnections. Getting this through costco is worth the extra bucks as in the future if it starts acting weird or glitching out, the return policy will likely be worthwhile.

No. Not even close. Third party apps have the router and one point going for $70.....

If not wired, they can only offer the max wifi speed they can get from the router.

The advantages here are a self identifying channel system, which identifies the best channel at a given moment for a device, to get top speeds. And the fact that points can piggy back off each other, meaning the point doesn't have to have direct contact back to the router, but can use the other points to get the data back.

This being said, walls, floors, and other forms of interference will slow down connections just like it does with other routers and wifi devices.

I have the last gen Google wifi, and have much better numbers than that, even 2 floors away from the "router".
