    Only complaint is that it doesn't have another Ethernet port. Other than that it gives us fast Wifi all around the house.

    First one I purchased had a faulty ethernet port, so I could not hardwire my xbox. Left a bad taste in my mouth questioning the true quality of the product. I exchanged for a new one and it works great.

    My house doesn't have Ethernet ports in all rooms. With this I don't need to route cables everywhere. Just a power port.

    Easy setup High download speed mesh network works great between the two story house. Only bad part is one ethernet port only on the back for connecting more devices. Adding a cheap networking switch fixes this problem.

    This thing packs a punch for being in such a small package. The setup was easy (app does all the work). The only downside that I can see is that it only has one Ethernet port out.

    This router was easy to set up with interaction on my iPhone. The addition hubs connected into the wireless web in my home quickly and with no delays. The remote hubs also provide an Ethernet port for devices that cannot connect via Wifi.

    Coming off a nighthawk + I have a networking background these are a solid set of devices. I hard wired mine and am getting a much more reliable and better wireless and wired connection. Only 2 draw backs are lack of features in app and a single Ethernet port. Nothing bad enough though to avoid.

    Google Wi-Fi has one of the simplest set ups that I have ever encountered with a tech product. It is actually easier than setting up a new tv!!!! The one downside (as has been mentioned) is the lack of ethernet ports. Since there is one, I added a network switch for my wired connection devices.

    Adequately covered our 2700 square foot 2-story home and a basement. Our router is in the second story where we have 100 mbs and the basement smart TV received 30 mbs, so good enough for streaming. Very easy set up -it actually guides you on where to set up the devices based on the strength of signal. Only downside is that the main device doesn't have any extra Ethernet ports, which is minor for most folks.

    Very simple to setup and use. The app works great and it's very easy to manage the network and devices. The only complaint I have is there is only 1 Ethernet port on each device. But well worth the money. I have a 1500 sq house and there is full bars in every room.

    Extremely easy to setup and use. Love it so far. My only complaint is there is no way to add anything wired to this network it is only wireless. It would have been nice to have at least one ethernet port. But that is minor.

    I bought this Wi-Fi because it was time to upgrade my N wireless router since it was suffering from speed performance issues with the addition of several wireless devices. I did not see much improvement with this system when I installed it. It also did not have enough Ethernet ports. It is also too expensive. I returned it and bought a cheaper but better dual-band router which works great and is exactly what I needed.

    Google wifi, is the best wifi-router system you can purchase. Easy to install and well worth the cost. You can't go wrong with this wireless router. Only issue is that, it has only one Ethernet port. If you need more ports, I would recommend the Linksys 5-port gigabit Ethernet switch, Model SE3005. It works well with Google wifi router

    I replaced my Securifi Almond 3 routers with the Google Wifi recently after a firmware upgrade apparently bricked the Securifi routers. Right away I noticed better coverage and better speed throughout my 3600 sq. ft. house. My only complaints with the Google Wifi is 1) lack of ethernet ports. Although, it isn't a huge deal since they provide solid wireless performance. I used to hardwire my video streaming devices (e.g. Amazon Fire Stick) but that isn't required with these routers and there is zero lag. 2) Lack of configuration option other than with the mobile app. It would be nice to use a browser to configure my routers like every other router I've ever owned.

    Noticed my smart TV streaming was shoddy and game consoles were slow to download. Purchased these. Downloaded the app. Set up quickly and the internet speeds have significantly improved. App allows for a lot of customization and control of access and device priority. Only issue is my wife works from home and requires hard lining computers and phones and there is only one ethernet port for each device. This was easily remedied by purchasing a port switch. Uploaded a quick comparison of speed between old router and google wifi.

    Great WiFi - missing WPS

    I traded in my nighthawk x10 for this. Setup was super simple with the app. Great mesh system: 3 access points/ 1 SSID (WiFi name). 3 stars because in spite of WiFi coverage that was superior to my old nighthawk router, it is missing WPS which a few of my devices relied on. Also, only offering 1 Ethernet port per access point forced me to buy an Ethernet switch. Ultimately I returned this google WiFi for the more expensive netgear Orbi. I now get the same great reliable WiFi with the WPS and 4 Ethernet ports on every access point. If you just need WiFi, Buy this item, works well with a simple setup.

    I had been using Apple airport expresses to expand my Wi-Fi. Always had issues. It constantly dropped out. I replaced it with this google Wi-Fi and it is awesome! Super easy to setup and track. The 3 modules cover all my home including my basement. The only negative I can say it that it only has two Ethernet ports per module. Other than that I highly recommend.

    This is an update from my old 2nd gen Airport Extreme. This Google Wifi does great at signal strength through out my 900 SQFT apartment. There are no longer any dead spots. The AC dual band is great for my range of devices. I love some of the smart features built into this system. The app is intiuative as well. The only downside is having just ONE auxillary ethernet port. Otherwise. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

    Using Comcast Xfinity and needed something that would accommodate my desire to manage devices proactively (read kids use) of the network with range. Xfinity router isn't good enough for a large home. I have tried Orbi and ran into some issues and the app isn't nearly as user friendly and feature rich as Google's product. Returned the Orbi and have deployed this solution. A ton of flexibility. The only drawback thus far is the lack of ethernet ports on the back of the unit to connect other wired devices (Sonos etc.). I will buy a switch to cover that. Otherwise, impressive with strong speeds. @@@@@ Note that I replaced my original Apple Airport Base Station/Expresses. The Orbi solution was an option but have returned it.

    The Best Wi-Fi I've Found...and I'm Picky!

    I'm one who is constantly tinkering in the garage, changing out cables, cleaning them up with bundling ties, etc. I love electronics and the latest technology. I'd bought a new house recently and forgot to ask them to add a data jack in the office of all places!! I had an Apple Airport Extreme with an Apple Airport Express in my office, but it just didn't work well and I lost of lot of signal. I bought the Google Wi-Fi 3-pack mesh network to try to alleviate the issue, and I've VERY happy with it. It was easy to set up, has a lot of great features and is self-sufficient. Each of the three (3) wi-fi points has a network/ethernet port on the bottom so you can plug in a device that doesn't work on wi-fi, or, that you want to hard wire. This is an excellent system. I recommended it to a guy at work and installed one in my parents house yesterday. I'd highly recommend it.
