Why down votes? Isn't this $700.. is it worth $550?
Two weeks ago it was $479 at Costco and I think Netgear had a similar price before they fixed a glitch that allowed double discounts. Still worth it though.

How much better this could be as compare to RBK50 which I got from Newegg a month or so back refurbished, but almost like new and since day one working flawlessly, much better than Google Mesh crap.

It was 479 at costco? This set, the top of the line one RBK852/3? Looking to get a set of these and trying to figure out where the trigger pull price is on it, but its a hassle to sift through price history with all the different models because even searches for that model bring up the others.

Keep in mind that WiFi 6E [wi-fi.org] has already been approved. In addition to Wi-Fi 6 it adds the 6 GHz band, so it will require new hardware. Unless you need WiFi 6 right now (which many people might working from home) you may want to wait for the WiFi 6E products around next year.

The Costco set is inferior. They have the 842 model not the 852

Don't know the real value vs high-end WiFi 5. Reliability, range, speed, throughput?

I know it's the latest and best but still seems like highway robber to me.. Unless you absolutely need it now, we all know how the old version dips in price.

I'm sure this is a great device.

But

There aren't many WiFi 6 devices (mainly cellphones and computers) out there that would be compatible and utilize a WiFi 6 router like this one as of now.

I'll wait until most of my devices are up to date AND when price comes down.

While these routers are super fast, they are wayyyy overkill for 99.9% of the people out there. If you have gigabit internet and you want the fastest speeds then this will perform better than the far cheaper RBK50/53 model. However, the rpice difference doesnt justify it (almost $200-$250) and you get one less router.

They do look very pretty though.

I'm still giving it a thumbs up for being a good price in the latest tech. However, I still can't think of a use case for this much performance. I also expect these WiFi 6 items will go down in price over time.... like all new technoloyg.

I have the Orbi RBK53. Before you guys get too excited , read the only review on NewEgg. I think this brand new product has a long way to go before, becoming and being stable for most people to switch and mess with.

- Rubbish and Very Disappointing-

Pros: *Easy to set up
*expensive
Nothing more

Cons: *Not as fast as some mesh systems
*Less coverage
*Wired backhaul not yet supported
*Third node reduces performance
*Erratic behavior
*No USB port

Other Thoughts: Inconsistent results during home tests and It does not have the mentioned range. You will need additional satellites. Which are not available as stand alone units.I was looking for wifi mesh system for my home to get good connectivity throughout the home. After going through so many reviews I went ahead with ORBI.
For initial 15 days it worked well but now the satellite keeps on disconnecting multiple times in a day. It becomes a issues when it happens in between skype business call.
Whenever this happen it needs restart. I scrolled all the related topics in netgear community and almost everyone is suffering from it with no solution.
I passes the return window and now stucked with this waste product.

finally I am decided to not buy any more netgear product
