      Ok, to start with I am good with tech but not a "wifi" guy. I have consistently purchased top of the line routers over the years looking for a "great" one. I have a two story house and about a acre yard with a pool in the back. My router needs to be in a upstairs office in the corner of the house. I have tried many many routers trying to get rid of dead areas. I have a bonus room over the garage on the other side of the house from the router and no system I have used could get me a decent divinely over there, I did not want to mess with repeaters or have to configure a lot of stuff. If I wanted wifi out by the pool in the back yard......we'll just to bad haha, was not going to happen so I I heard about these mesh systems and here's how it went: My first one which I purchased about two months ago was the Google wifi. I went with it just because it's google and I had never heard of AmpliFi (as I have said I'm not a wifi guy) I took the google system home and started to set it up. The setup process was super easy and I was excited to be rid of all my dead spots!.....but wait.....not that easy haha. I found the goo ugly routers to be underpowered, if you were not in the danger room as they were your siginal would drop 50% easy, if you were two rooms away when you mise well be on Mars. I still had my close to dead area in my bonus room, kitchen was still weak, and pool was still a no go. I had three of the google routers and sure I could have purchased more and had one in every room but who wants to spend $1000 on wifi? I finally gave up on the google, it was no better then my Linksys Wrt1900Acs that it replaced I started watching YouTube videos and after a long debate decided to try the Amplifi HD, to tell you the truth the 20,000 sq ft coverage scared me off a little a first. I thought it was just marketing and I would rather be told the truth. I get the AmplifiHD home and open the box, when I pull out the router my first thought was: "WTF, look how little this thing is, it's going to suck!" Haha. I thought maybe it would work better then one of the google wifi pods but now way would it work half as good as my old Linksys WRT1900ACS. It was not even a quarter of the size and had no external antennas. So I proceed to follow the directions to hook it up ( I was really not expecting much at this point ) the directions and pictures were some of the best I've ever seen and anyone could hook this thing up. After I hooked it up I wanted to run some test around the house to see how well it worked ( or didn't ) before I connected the two mesh points. It was a real shocker! The base unit by itself had more range and better siginal then any wifi router I had ever owned! I even had a decent siginal in the dreaded bonus room over the garage. So I hooked up one mesh point in the bonus room to get close to perfect speeds and I put one downstairs in my kitchen. I started walking around doing speed test and was amazed at the results. I had my stated speed are faster than what I was paying for (300mbps) just about everywhere in the house. I think the worst area was a small hall downstairs and it averaged 250ish! And here is the best news.......WIFI BY THE POOL!!! Not only do I have wifi out by the pool but I have super fast wifi. It averages about 200 around the pool, and not only do I have Wi-Fi by the pool, I have Wi-Fi everywhere in my acre yard and at the farthest point the slowest the speed gets is around 90mbps which is still fast enough to do just about anything. Needless to say I'm super happy with this purchase and I highly recommend this unit. If it holds up then this will be one of the best purchases I've ever made

      Wireless coverage with speed and flexibility

      I reviewed the market extensively for a wireless mesh system for my new 5000 sq.ft 2 floor + basement house and finally landed on this one. With AT&T gigapower fiber in the house, I wanted a device which would support faster speeds, reach all over the house and also give me the flexibility to move around as needed. After researching Eero (expensive), Google Wifi (not enough throughput for me), Orbi (liked it but expensive), Velop (seems another good one), Milo (not enough throughput), Nighthawk (extremely powerful but only one device and was concerned about total reach on all floors and basement), I landed up with this Amplifi device. The device is sleek, setup is easy and everything can be controlled from the app, which is extremely convenient. Also the two additional antenna type devices plug in to wall outlets and keep coverage across the house. There are a number of features I like about this device: (1) internet control for kids, (2) device prioritization for streaming (3) dual band automatic switching based on where I am in the house (4) guest access control and expiry (5) ability to move the mesh around to the farthest corners of the basement (6) route prioritization (7) performance checks without the need for okla...the list goes on. In some areas I am getting close to 780 Megs/Sec download speeds, in others as low as 180 Megs/Sec, but for someone who had Xfinity 100 MBPS and was getting only 30-40 gigs in the past, I am a very happy camper. Especially, since I have cut the chord on my cable and only use online on-demand TV. And no more phones at home, just my cellphone which uses wireless inside. I have 2 phones, 3 tablets, 3 TVs, 1 Apple TV, 1 Roku, 1 Alexa, 2 desktop computers + guests who use the wifi network, and it runs without a glitch. Streaming is awesome and there is never a blip, thanks to this device. In fact, I keep it hidden even though it looks awesome and from inside the cabinet it works. And it is less expensive than many. I love it and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a device that provides good coverage, good throughput, flexibility to move the mesh around, sleek and easy to setup at a less than $350 price point.

      Better than average

      I put this system in a 2-story 3000 sq ft "Frank Lloyd Wright" style home with concrete construction. Due to the time period this house was built, all utilities (including cable) enter the property at the ground level which, for half of the home, sits below ground level. Consequently the our wifi base has to live in "the basement"--a less than ideal location--as there is no direct pathway for ethernet or rg6 (coax cable) to get to the upper level of the house. We bought the Amplifi because if it's "high density technology" and the positive ratings it received for coverage in structures like ours. We did see coverage improvement over our older model access points especially between floors directly above the base station. Our antennas are placed at a distance labeled "good" by the phone app (i.e. 4-5 bars). Again, limited by the construction of the home (i.e. no power outlets in the hallways due to hallways housing closets and storage) our antenna placement is not quite ideal, but adequate. We did notice that devices connecting through the antennas rather than the base unit had speed tests significantly lower (35mbps vs. 100+mbps) than those connected to the base station, however, the speeds through the antennas are fine for our needs. The phone app is helpful post setup to monitor speeds and connectivity. We did find some devices falling off the network for unknown reasons. In an attempt to fix that we changed the device optimization to "media" (from "normal") and for whatever reason performance and connectivity improved for those devices (mostly phones and tablets). Additionally, the app provides you with detailed info about devices connecting to your network (or your "guest network" if activated) and allows you to pause connections for all or select devices. Lastly, you can set the network up without the app according to the vendor, however, I did not explore that option. I feel like the Ubiquiti Amplifi was a bit over-hyped but at the same time, it is a significant improvement from our former wifi router/access point configuration (4 yrs old) and works in our hard-to-cover property.

      Blazing fast internets again!

      This unit is incredibly simple to install. The iPhone app couldn't be easier to use. For the novice with little to no special requirements its just a matter of turning on your bluetooth and waiting for the unit to connect with your phone. You give your wireless network a name and enter a password. Thats it. Upgrading from an older Netgear Blackhawk took less than five minutes. It took longer to peel all the plastic off the router than it took to get this running. For those not acquainted with the brand Ubiquiti they are a large enterprise system type equipment provider. This is the first unit in a consumer market and its a home run. The guts of this router have the same DNA as their enterprise equipment. Don't be fooled by the cute looks. This little box means business. Most homes have a couple dozen network devices all fighting for bandwidth on your network. Consumer grade routers choke when all these devices suddenly want bandwidth at the same time. Think of it as what happens when you're on the freeway and they close the right lane ahead... Everyone has to slow down to allow those right lane drivers to merge. This router keeps all the lanes open all the time. The two mesh nodes completely filled my 2500 sq/ft split level with 100% signal on the 5Ghz AC band. The system will automatically route devices to the appropriate network band depending on signal strength or media type. My Roku's all connected on the 5ghz band, while smart home devices connected on 2.4ghz. If you don't like the system doing this automatically you can change the settings in the app to separate the networks. What I really like is the ability to turn off internet access to single devices anytime I like. If you need to set a schedule for individual devices they have a way to define this in the app. Perfect for homework time. I contacted tech support with a question about port forwarding. They have several ways to reach them including 24/7 chat. The person on the other end of my chat session was knowledgeable and got my questions answered in no time. Ever try contacting anyone at Netgear or Dlink for help? Good luck. If you want a whole home network system that looks great and actually WORKS and doesn't look like some UFO or evil spider with tons of antennas then this is for you. Having full bandwidth for all your devices is amazing. It was so noticeable that even my wife asked what changed. The company isn't likely one you've ever heard of but rest assured this unit performs!!!

      Good Wi-Fi Coverage for Older Home

      I read lots of reviews and went with the AmpliFi system because it seemed the best value. Our house has plaster walls, so our old WiFi did not reach well in the living room (despite having a repeater). This mesh network creates no dead zones in our 2,000 square foot home despite the router being near the back of the house. Most of our yard has a great signal too. The setup is simple. Just follow the instructions and you are up and running in no time. The app easily tells you if your mesh access points are too far away. I started mine with the ideal location and then worked my way toward the main router until it had a strong signal. The app gives useful information about your network once you're up and running. The best in my opinion is how much data each device is using in realtime on the WiFi. When the internet is slow, this helps me figure out why (typically a computer downloading OS updates). From the app you can pause or kick off any device. You can also pause all Internet traffic. I would like to see the router be able to set schedules for particular devices, so as our kids get older and have their own devices, they can be Internet off at particular times. The main router has a screen. It's designed to be in plain sight. It's unnecessary but nice and well done. We have a monthly cap to our Internet, so I have the screen set to show our total Internet usage for the month. This has been a helpful gauge to keep an eye on things without going to our Internet Provider's website (although not as accurate). The mesh access points are a bit odd. They plug directly into the wall, so they are low to the ground. The antennas connect to the power by magnets. This allows some movement of the antenna to point in the best direction and also prevents the antenna from breaking off, instead it just pops off and can be put back in. It seems like a good idea but is definitely a different implementation than I've ever seen.

      Good package, Improved my internet speed

      I would have easily given 5 star, but reducing 1 start just to showcase some points which I would consider as rooms for improvement. 1) Setup - I had some hiccups, surprisingly. First, the USB-C power connection was not perfect when I plugged in first time although the device powered on. For a long time, I could not figure out the issue due to an ambiguous error being shown in the device display. I am still confused as to how the device can be powered on through USB-C and still not have a good connection. But once I unplugged and reconnected, the issue went away. 2) The mesh points switched between offline and online a couple of times in the beginning. This could be part of the firmware update, but the app did not indicate anything but that the mesh points were offline. After about 15 minutes, the 2 mesh points both became online and everything was good. But it was confusing during that process as to what was going on. 3) The USB-C power wire is only about 2 ft long. I would have very much benefitted if it was at least 1 more ft long. 4) LCD lighting at the bottom of the main device does not dim to my liking. I wanted a very feeble light which I could not achieve. Since it was too bright for me even at the lowest setting, I chose to set it off. 5) Styling is very nice, but I would have preferred a black one if it was available since all my other electronic devices in the living room are black. But it is what it is. None of these issues affect the core functionality of the device though. I have a small house (1800 sqft, split entry) and my 7 year old Verizon router still works fine. But behind every closed door, network connectivity used to drop by 25-75% and now with Amplifi, it looks to be around 10-25% max. That is way better. I don't have too many devices and I would prefer to keep it that way since wifi and radiation is never good for health. So I don't anticipate the device overload issue that many people complain about Amplifi. Also, the App is simple and very easy to understand and configure.

      Great Mesh System

      Have had several high dollar routers over the last 3 years, Netgear Nighthawk/ Asus etc... Have been decent but always having to reset them because phones/roku/game systems stop connecting. I usually have at least 23 devices on my network at any one time. Have been looking at going to mesh system for sometime but was kind of worried about the lack of management features and logging that comes with the higher priced routers. I looked at the different models on the market and decided on the AmpliFi from Ubiquiti. I have installed their access points in the past with excellent results in commercial settings so I figured it should be similar in performance. I liked that you could plug the extenders directly in an outlet... of course that can also be a negative depending on where it must go. The base unit is really pretty slick looking and the fact that it has a clock built into it's display means my wife doesn't necessarily mind it out in the open as much. The extenders are a nice size (you definitely aren't concealing them easily) but it is manageable. There is really no setup involved sothat means there is very little to manage on the router itself. The app is great and gives you who's connected, you can cut that device off if desired and how much bandwidth it is using at that point. Not very much else except a speedtest to check your ISP and a diagnostic screen that shows the current WAN status. Since installing I have not had anyone complaining that there device was not connected to the internet or any kind of speed degradation. Not for the person that likes to tinker and control every aspect of their device but for someone that wants a solid reliable home router/mesh system I highly recommend this.

      We have a large house with a lot of kids and a TON of devices. Seriously. I'm sure we have more internet connected devices than many small businesses. At any rate, after reading reviews from dozens of expert tech sites, and after watching hours of YouTube video reviews, I bought their recommendations only to learn none of them work as well in real world conditions as they did in the review labs. In the comments of many of these sites and videos, there would always be people who said they tried so-and-so mesh or wifi router too, but it didn't pan out as expected... then they tried Ubiquity's Amplifi system and it's been trouble free ever since. This makes sense. Ubiquity makes the business wifi that covers shopping malls and huge offices, and they've been doing it right and reliably for a very long time. So I returned my latest disappointment and bought an Amplifi mesh router, and WOW, what a difference. We have strong, 5 GHz (not the slower 2.4 GHz) coverage everyone in the house, garage, front yard, back yard, etc. And best of all: it keeps working. Maybe some other product has a faster speed in a laboratory benchmark, but unless your family works in a lab where no neighborhood wifi interferes, save yourself the headache and get this Amplifi system instead. It's fast enough, and it is so reliable that your kids won't threaten to take your DAD CARD from you because of all the outages and dead spots they put up with.
