Next cheapest price was $229.99 on Amazon for refurb. These seems to go in and out of stock on Costco.

I have this - bought it for the same price from Costco few months back. It is super easy to install and has been rock solid since the day i first plugged it in. However, once awhile I feel as if my internet "stutters." that is, a page takes too long to load. This started happening only after I installed the product, but could be an coincidence. I stream to Roku stick using WiFi, no problem there.

I wish they implement a real guest network and perhaps a VPN server as well.

I have eero pro 3 pack (1st) gen, wired backhaul and set as access points, and everytime we move around it seems like the system is trying to switch to a different router which causes pauses in the connections. I wonder if this will help.

Thanks for the heads up about a lack of a guest network. I was ready to buy until I saw that.

I've tried both the Velop Tri Band and Nest. I liked the Nest more than the Velop but my brother in law swears by the M9s so I'm going to give them a try.

After reading your reply, I googled to see the status of firmware update to enable a true guest network and quickly found that I may have been incorrect - check this out: https://community.tp-link.com/en/...ic/175944. It seems that when Deco is used in the router mode, the host and guess networks are isolated from each other as they should be but they share the same DHCP range. In the AP mode, however, the host and guest networks are not isolated.

Got this at $99. It's a great system and works pretty flawlessly.

Worth $199, although that seems to be the regular price now.

The key to this system is that it's tri-bad, so your backhaul is on a separate channel. That's critical to optimize performance. Older systems are two band and don't work nearly as well (unless you have a wired backhaul, which most people don't).

Interesting - I feel like I get the same thing with a page freezing once in a while. No issues with Roku.

Love the free built in virus protection and parental controls that the other highly rated Orbi charges $50/year for.

I don't want to tc here, but I picked up this set late last year and had a lot of issues. Speedtest.net looked great on my 500/500 fiber, but FaceTime, Zoom, and gaming were completely unusuable. When I checked other sites like dslreports, I found that I was getting 1500-2000 ms lagspikes. Average lag was generally OK but those regular lagspikes killed any kind of video conference and online gaming. A quick google search turned up several support threads with the same issue. I switched back to the non-mesh router provided by my ISP and all the issues vanished, even though I was getting 1/5 the average download speed due to distance from the router. Even streaming looked better, probably because the algorithm adjusted for those 2 second lag spikes by lowering the resolution. I ended up sending the Deco 9 back to CostCo.

I was running the wireless backhaul, so it's possible wired would work. Just wanted to throw out an FYI so anyone that jumps on this should check for this issue before the return period runs out.

I tried TP-Link Deco M9 Plus Tri-Band TWICE.
The first purchase performed really good but unfortunately, the main Deco keep getting too hot so I end up returning.
The second purchase was horrible, it kept disconnecting nonstop so that had to go back.
Then I give up on M9.
Now I ordered TP-Link Deco Wi-Fi 6 AX1800 2pack from Walmart for $169. So keeping my fingers crossed hope this works better.

It was a Costco price mistake.
