eero Home WiFi System (Pack of 3) [amazon.com]

This represents a 25% discount of their regular price, and it beats the Black Friday price by $14.

This solution is not for everyone, but WiFi mesh is the future and these (along with Netgear Orbi) are as good as it gets.

Thanks. Have been waiting for this. Got 2 sets. This is the best in the market right now. Only thing comparable in terms of speed is Orbi with a dedicated 3rd band for backhaul. But eero supports ethernet backhaul which is huge if your house is semi-wired LAN like mine.

This is $100 more than the Google WiFi that is faster. Google WiFi also has wired ethernet backhaul and supports Beam.

Kind of no brainer to get the Google wifi, IMO.

Totally agree. Was able to pick up the Google WiFi 3 pack for $269 off of Amazon and this is easily the most impressive network product I have ever seen.

Easiest network device I have ever setup. Google has a nice iPhone or Android app to configure. It uses your Google account so no forgetting the router password, etc. None of the overly technical menus but instead made for just plug and play.

What is cool is it tells you where to place and finally solved our WiFi dead spots. But what is weird is our wired network is now significantly faster and apparently there was issue with our old router that we never knew about.

You get a better product for $100 less.

Thanks. I guess you need to dig into the weeds to understand the real product differences. Google does not support some advanced features like dynamic Qos, IPV6, multiple IP schemes, etc. There has been some reliability concerns especially with ethernet backhaul. Google's paper with claims of faster speeds was before eero released its "true mesh" updates in nov. Personally, i have hard time trusting google as my router due to concerns of collecting my personal network data as its connected to cloud all the time. At the end its personal pref. Eero still is the market leader and it remains to be seen how google competes in that space in 2017.

biggest problem with Google wifi is apparently availability. if I could get it for 269 I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

are you looking for higher local network or internet speed? For local network Orbi seems to be the best.

The reliance on the cloud makes this a non-starter. I'd get the Orbi which doesn't have that weakness.

Just the lack of MU-MIMO on Google Wifi makes Eero the superior of the two. This coming from a guy who almost bought Google Wifi after doing way too much research into it.

Most reviews and comparisons have shown google wifi to be significantly inferior to eero and Orbi in terms of speed, range, and advanced features.

AmpliFi is the best for strength/range, but if you care about software features then yea go with eero

wonder why people don't compare with AmpliFi. http://www.businessinsider.com/go...gle-wifi-8 shows eero is faster FYI
