    "Great upgrade from a standard router....I purchased the Google mesh WiFi home system a little over a month ago, and I purchased it to go along with my Ring Pro doorbell, because something they don't tell you about the Ring doorbell is that it needs a substantial amount of WiFi in order to work properly, so I had to purchase an additional single satellite and put it on the back side of the wall where my ring Pro doorbell is located in order to get a better wifi connection to the doorbell"

    "Great upgrade for the price....I love that it takes up very little space, but due to not having external antennas, it goes out a lot if being used for wifi access for smartphones, but is fine with being used for laptops and computers if you don't mind a few delays and even though it's a dual- band wireless-n router with built in cable modem, it's difficult to get the secondary band to function and wouldn't recommend it for large homes but it's rather more suitable for apts"
