Netgear Orbi is the best wifi performance mesh system



  • Very fast speeds at long range
  • Easy for setting up
  • Support Mu-Mimo
  • Much faster performance than WiFi extenders.
  • More ethernet ports than other WiFi extenders.
  • Single SSID makes managing connections easy.


  • A little expensive
  • USB port is currently dormant
  • Compared to other mesh products, physically is larger and more visually obtrusive.

Compared to the other several mesh wifi products, this product has no obvious advantages in the industrial design, and I think it is also a good choice to consider it as an artwork at home. As the world’s leading wifi network solutions provider, this product’s performance is very good, the technical performance will be more obvious.
