That's a nice price. Any idea how good this mesh system is?

I have this setup at home (3400 sq ft.). Works pretty well. However, current firmware fixed the "hack" to separate the 2.4GHz and the 5GHz wifi signals. Just personal preference in device connection. If you do not care about separating the signals, then this is a winner.

Is it impossible to add IOT stuff without manual splitting?

I have the 3 pack version of this and was able to add 2.4 GHz only devices as well as other IoT Wifi devices.

Yes, this just happened yesterday as I upgraded the firmware. I was so pissed.

Don't own the Orbi myself but I saw Voxel has firmware for it. Maybe that lets you have better control? I use his firmware on my R7800 and it opens up a lot of options.

Thanks for the tip. Is this firmware trustworthy?

When I was researching these a year ago, I concluded that the big and little versions of the Orbi had the same internals with the exception of antenna size (so same processor and RAM). Flash forward 1 year and my heavily connected home hiccups every so often using the smaller version.

Is there compelling evidence that this big brother can handle more volume rather than more coverage with fewer satellites?

I have a pair of these. I love them. Great range and excellent speeds no matter which unit you are connected to. Like others, I soft modded to separate the 2.4/5ghz channels. It wasn't necessary but I'm a computer nerd so I enjoy having control over my network. It was really easy. Google will find you a nice tutorial. I have about 2 dozen devices connected with no issues. I'd buy these again in a heartbeat.

The satellite can't be used as a wired access point because it doesn't have a WAN port. Is that correct?

How do these compare to the Nest 2 router pack?
