Reviews from the release earlier this year were a little middling, but when it comes to the cutting edge routers, it typically takes a few firmware updates for them to clear out any bugs.

Personally, I plan to use this as a dedicated 6E access point, and leave my other access points for the non-6E clients.

This router Wifi 6 performs the same as a Asus AX58U or AX68u that cost around $100 less. It's wifi 6 performance is midtier, only consider it If you have gigabit internet and S21 Ultra or another 6E capable device than can take advantage of the 6hz band.

See the performance of it on regular Wifi 6.

Looks like a good deal for my existing Velop interface; I have a bunch of the original dual- and tri-band devices, and was looking to add Wifi6 to the system with their new nodes... but those are mainly Wifi 6 and not Wifi 6e (with the Atlas version and a high price tag). This looks like a cheaper option to add 6e, and use my existing nodes for outside regions.

with exception of the 6E feature, how does this stack up against the Costco TP-LINK AX-11000?

The Costco TP-LINK AX-11000 is HORRIBLE.... I tried it out for a week and it was slower than my 7-year old WiFi 5 Netgear router...​

This is not my experience with AX-11000. On the contrary. I am using the AX-11000 for more than a year now and while it had some issues in the beginning, they were fixed by firmware updates. It has great coverage and speed. I wouldn't say it's the best router out there but far from horrible for me.
