Amazon has the eero mesh 3-pack with a free Echo Dot on sale for $199 (or lower if you're eligible for the current Amex promo). Decent deal if you need one now, probably the lowest we'll see until Prime Day.

You are only one third correct.

The eero pro is tri band. The beacons are dual band.

So by now I know what you're thinking. "But why would they bundle a dual band with a tri-band? The beacons are using the same radios for receiving and transmitting."

Yep. It's a marketing point. They can advertise try bands and then in the fine print to say that beacons are dual band. I would never ever ever purchase the eero pro with dual band satellites.
I got fed up with shit reception in our house, especially to our security cameras. I was ready to spend whatever, a month ago, and got the Eero Pro 3 pack from Best Buy for $399.

The range issue is fixed and it turns out my 11+ year old Linksys E4200 was unable to handle even the simple-ass "up to 200 Mbps" plan from Xfinity and was giving us 80-100 Mbps, at best.

With the eero Pros, without wired backhaul, I get 150 Mbps at the furthest end of my house and from the third Pro unit. With wired backhaul, I was getting 220+ Mbps, as per Fast.com.

I don't know if Best Buy still has that deal or not, but $400 was pretty steep but it fixed all the issues we were having with our cameras getting their video cut out. And download speeds for files went from about 8 MB/s to well over 20 MB/s. Since we don't have ethernet ports in our house and our modem could only be installed in a corner of our basement due to the Voice plan from Xfinity, this eero basically made all of that a non-issue. Even my ping while gaming went from 50-70 and down to 20-35ish.
According to the CNET reviews, these radios are absolutely horrible for distances of 37 ft. It's not a matter of not placing their satellites at 37 feet. But if they had to, and if they had line of sight, every other dual band system in existence trounces this thing.

To the bar chart where they compare 5 ft 37 and 1/2 ft and 75 ft.

It's not a bad system, but it goes to show you that it is poorly designed, an entry-level system, and if you are going to be close to 37 ft away between access points this is not for you. Remember I think the instruction said to place it two rooms away from each other. Meaning the access knows.

Even if using the Ethernet backhaul, this system might not be for you... There are many systems out there for only a little bit more.

This is a good deal if you're going to use wired backhaul since this model is only a dual band. I opted not to get this and will likely get the Asus mini ax system that was recently released. The main reason for my decision is to have some future proofing with WiFi 6

For anyone wondering, these aren't tri-band. The pro with 2 beacons is tri-band but costs $100 more

Anybody know when this expires? These are perfect for clients that I already proposed Eero to... but they have been dragging their heels on giving yay/nay. Want to light a fire under them.

Folks,

The BEST $200 Mesh Router now is the TP-LINK DECO M9 PLUS (tri-band).

(TP-Link Deco M9 Plus Tri-Band Wi-Fi System with Built-In Smart Hub, 3-pack)

AFTER testing so many Mesh routers since last year, within $100 - $200 bracket, NOTHING else beat DECO M9 PLUS, for that price.

They have it in Costco.com now.

Have a great day to y'all...

I've had the Samsung mesh router for a couple years. Bought it when it was $99.
Has worked well, no major issues. Wifi is stable, speeds are good.
We only use 2 hubs, so we have an extra one in case one breaks or something.
