X60 is dual band. The x68 is Tri-band (dedicated wireless backhaul). If you are doing a wired backhaul the x60 is a great performer- bang for the buck. If thinking of using wireless backhaul go with x68

With the free parental controls on the ax3600, you can set bed times (7 day rule). You will need to upgrade (Subscribe) the parental controls to do Weekend/Weekday Bedtimes and for device timers. Some of the higher models and actually lower models (M5 & M9) come with lifetime free upgraded parental controls and also network protection/iot protection. Even with this minimum parental controls, the Deco ax3600 is still better than other brands that do not provide any parental controls.

Got my Ax3600 today. Everything set up just fine and I am seeing nearly double speed compared to the M9s

Heads up for Google Fiber users (at least in the Kansas City area). To bypass the fiber box you have to set up VLAN. ID = 2 and Priority = 3. The latest X3600 firmware does not seem to be passing the priority setting correctly. I was seeing 800 up and 10 down. Reverting to the previous firmware took care of it. The X3600 isn't listed on the main download page so here is a link in case anyone needs it

I've had mine installed for almost a week (6 days to be exact).

I finally installed my 2nd delco and I have full coverage of 4000sq ft 2 story house and a 1000sq ft garage. The signal now extends all the way into the street and the very end of the backyard. It's been very reliable/stable.

About the parental control it gets the job done. I keep sleep time between 10pm-7am. If my daughter wants more time after 10pm I change the sleep time. I can also disable her device anytime.

The reporting feature is nice and tells me who uses the most data and the most time on the net.

It's a keeper for me.

Thinking about ditching my 3x eero pro (2nd gen) setup for this. Was happy with eero until the last couple months where the gateway node reboots itself almost daily now. Contacted support, said logs looked fine and blamed my ISP. I pushed back and they gave me a few suggestions like swapping nodes and changing my dns. No luck, and the best support will do now is offer me a discount on the new models since I am out of warranty.

And of course, I can't view the logs myself since eero owns all that doesn't share. But that's a mistake on my part buying into a locked ecosystem in the first place.

Was thinking of going with the M9 Plus at first, but I figured I might as well upgrade a little in the process.

Edit: since it wasn't mentioned, this is an online only item. not available in store.

Which version did you downgrade to? I have 1g fiber 1000/300 as well and the x3600 system is throttling me down to 500/200 even over ethernet. My Deco M9+ was giving me 950/300 and the X3600 does the same for the first 30 mins upon boot up, then throttled the speeds down to 500/200 ethernet and 400/200 wifi.

Seems like this is the cheapest mesh 3 pack you can get if you want both wifi 6 and Tri-band. Gonna grab this one.

Just bought the Deco M9 Plus set at Costco for $160, replacing google mesh. Is this worth the extra money over the M9 plus? TIA

Really depends on if you have wifi 6 devices or not. I had the M5 and worked great, but the x3600 does have better coverage and speed. The M9 does perform better than the M5 due to the 3 wireless radios (1 is a dedicated wireless backhaul). I would have purchased the M9 if I was just replacing my M5, but just got the family some iPhone 12s which are wifi 6. So it really depends on if you have wifi 6 devices, since M9 is wifi 5. One other thing, M9 had better Free parental controls and malware blocker. X3600 handicaps the parental control unless you pay for the upgraded parental controls.
