Product Review: Netgear - Orbi Wireless-AC3000 Wifi System

This is the NetGear Orbi Wireless - AC3000 Wifi System

It retails for $399.99 at Bestbuy.

Installation of this unit was a breeze.

This unit looks nothing like a typical router.
I installed it on my existing mesh network. It works flawlessly as would be expected from Netgear. I could not log in to my router with the Netgear Genie, but that might be because I'm using it as an access point. It does lack a guest network, but I was informed that it is on the way in it's next update by end of year (2016).
I use the node analogy for this unit. You have a main node that connects to your network, and then you have a remote node that you can place any where in your house where you can provide power to it. When connected to the orbi wifi system, It will automatically switch you to the node with the strongest signal. Thus eliminating any dead zones in your wifi system. This unit is a little pricey, but for an easy to install mesh network, this unit is worth the money.

** I have a material connection regarding this piece of equipment or its manufacturer. **
