I think you'll find Ars' latest mesh review informative. It basically makes the case that it's still too early to upgrade to WiFi 6 systems.

Thanks for remembering and thinking of me, Dave.

It seems like it may still be a bit early to make a final determination on 6E as the article suggests more testing needs to be done.

However, I don't regret holding out for the new 6E mesh routers to be introduced. Thanks again!

I keep an eye out for reviews on wifi mesh systems since I've been looking for an excuse to upgrade for like three years now! :laugh:

Me, as well, though I am becoming lazy and depending on someone like you to post the interesting ones.

The two companies I am most interested in hearing from are Eero and Amplifi, neither of which has released 6E mesh units as of yet.

Target has the eero 6 3-pack for $84 off, only $195.99. No idea if this is a one-day sale or not.

Not a bad price. I would want the PRO though.

Yeah, just say no to dual band units, especially for this kind of setup.

They probably waste the wifi-6 band on the wireless backhaul, leaving you w/ slow-ish, 2.4Ghz actual connections to all your devices. It *might* be better than the old wifi-5 version, but probably only marginally so, if at all, in actual usage...
