Is this in-store also?
Yes, they're the same price as online. But availability in store are limited.

Picked this up yesterday at my local Costco. So far I'm loving it. Getting 200mbps which is basically what I'm paying for. In my detached garage, and backyard, getting about 30-40 Mbps . Ordered the deco m9 should be here Monday, going to try that out, and whichever I like best I'll keep.

This is not a true mesh system as satellites do not communicate with each other but just with main router. In other words you cannot extend coverage in Single direction without repositioning the router.
This is absolutely false.

i already have the same system. Can I buy one more to add them as satellites?
Yep. I bought the same second set almost a year later and added it to my existing network. Both same model.

Does the satellite have an ethernet port for connecting a device that does not support Wi-Fi?
Both units have 2 ports each. However, since you need to connect the cable modem to the main satellite, that leaves only 1 port for another device.

Jesus you have no idea what you are talking about, yet come on here and proclaim lies as the truth.

Satellite can backhaul over wire, which is what you want to do anyway Applause

Anyways these are old tech. Notice everyone is saying they bought it a few years ago and they are great, well yes they were, but they are getting cheap for a reason. AC is old tech

No WiFi 6 so like no HDMI. If you buy this you will buy a new one in a year or less depending on when you get new stuff you connect to it. What good is WiFi 6 on your new iPhone 11 if your wireless doesn't support it

I have 3 levels and yard. Home is about 3600 sq feet. I'm guessing I need 3 units? What do you guys recommend.

Actually this tech is two generations ago. WiFi 5 and 6 are newer and faster. For folks with <200 speeds should be fine. And if you buy this and add it to an existing system, you can use the satellite as an extender but not a modem. You can daisy chain it for a second router if you need it for some reason
Two generations ago would be 802.11n. Wifi 5 = 802.11AC. Wifi 6 = 802.11AX. Per the specs, this is an AC mesh router.
Wireless Standard: 802.11b/a/g/n/ac

How does this compare to the TP-Link Archer C4000 Tri-Band Wi-Fi Router that Costco has for the same price?
I am not satisfied with it. When it works it works great. Excellent coverage and speed but I have multiple instances of devices dropping out especially on the 2.4 Ghz band. connectivity issues at times.

Forgive my newbie questions here. I have never used a mesh WiFi system.

This is a tri-band system but it appears to be an Orbi model that's over 2 years old. I saw an old review that says this particular Orbi Satellite only works well when it's connected via WiFi as opposed to ethernet). Would that have been fixed by now via firmware? What are the drawbacks to this vs. a newer model?

(My situation: I have an old FiOS Gateway router on one side of the house and an old TP Link access point on the other side of the house, connected via ethernet. Performance is acceptable but can be inconsistent. I don't NEED to replace it all, but it seems like it might be the time with all this WFH going on.)
