what about Google WiFi makes it so popular when tri band systems like the deco m9 sell for about roughly the same price as the gen 1 refurbished Google WiFi pack? Is it because of the Google ecosystem? I only have good things to say about the m9's but with how popular Google is, im always intrigued.

Just name brand, these from a performance standpoint are not even in a top 5 or top 10 anymore. I would not pay over $100 for a set new, let alone $180 for a refurbished set, lol.

Personally I just prefer to avoid Chinese companies.

$70 bucks for a refurbished version 1 of this router is not a deal. $40 would be.

I currently have Deco mesh from the a deal a couple months ago. I waiting on a Google deal forever. Should I switch? The only reason I would consider is the ecosystem. Thoughts?

These are certainly an older model but for someone looking for reliability, they fit the bill. I just picked up a pack of M9's from Costco and I could not return them fast enough. Coming from a TP-Link 6000 router, coupled with an old G router acting as an access point I expected the M9's to be an upgrade, but I found them lacking in both range and performance (dl/ul speeds) compared to my hodgepodge setup. I've replaced them with the Google Nest WiFi (newer version of these).

The main advantage of the Google WiFi system is maintainability. There are better mesh systems out there, to be sure, but few are as easy to setup or check on as theirs. Very good for people that need a router in a less tech savvy house.

what makes the 1st gen better is every unit is both a router/access point. second gen has 1 router, and you add access points.

I set these up for my parents house and it's been perfect for the last 2 years. No disconnects, no reboots needed. The range is not the best, but the added bonus of expandable via cheap OnHub units is great , I added a couple of them to resolve the range issue. In total we have 3 Google units and 2 Onhub units, spent less than $300, and covers their big 4500 sq/ft house with big backyard perfectly.

Got one last time it was on sale on Woot. It shipped in a white box (not original) with cables and an instruction sheet (which is fairly detailed even including some tips on updating the firmware). It's worked perfectly fine so far.

I have 5 of these and they work great. I haven't upgraded as the new systems for a similar price seem to lack Ethernet ports. The nice thing with these is you can plug in two Ethernet cables or a switch and have 'wired' connections for devices like TVs and NAS devices that don't have built-in WiFi, or want to run some devices without adding to all the radio signals in your house. You will get ~200 mbps this way on the devices hooked up to an access point on a wire.
