Amazon have reduced the 3 disc version to £169.99. I suppose you could just buy the 2 x pack for £99 and then another for £79.97 but this is still a bit cheaper.
I'm going to buy a set and have submitted this in case it helps another poor sod who's brick/block house stops those little wifi magic rays of goodness getting to back bedrooms or just awkward places.
This normally knocks around the £189 figure and camelcamelcamel shows this as the cheapest its been bar a very short one off at £164.
Anyway, I don't think this is has already been submitted and here we go.
I must say, I though these would have been reduced on Black Friday but the cunning swines waited until now.
Peace, love and cheesy chips.

Some of us got rich by being careful with money
Not everyone with a big house throws money away for no reason when there are bargains to be found

We use these in our office, old building with thick walls and not suitable for cat5/ethernet cabling, we had good speed in but not at the desks, went from 1mb at the worst deg to 30mb, and 40 - 50meg at the other desks, the app is a bit clunky but works fine, I can see who is connected where, move them around to try and find better positions and they hot swap connections as people move around, particularly noticeable on the mobiles.
In short we highly recommend, a £180 solution to a problem we were quoted £3000 to resolve. As a note we had been using a mixture of extenders and plug in mains units, but some desks were just in poor areas.

Details please... perhaps reviews?

Thanks, to be honest, I don't even know what an AP is. I'm guessing its a wifi extender type thing like the BT one.
Its typical that I've just bought the BT one now. Anyway thanks for the advice, I just took the easy option as I had heard of the BT one.
My parents dropped me on my head too many times for me to understand this electronic trickery type stuff.

Irrelevant
This isn't an access point
Unless you can hardware your house with ethernet cables to supply each Ubiquiti AP, the product is useless, whereas with these WiFi disks they are purely wireless. Completely different product category

The problem is, I have tried the 'highly recommended' BT wifi extenders a few years ago and they were cra...rubbish. Not being a technical type, I don't know if simply 1 x whole home thingy is enough, 2 or 3.
I simply played it safe and bought the 3 pack. My place is an 60s Wimpy brick and block estate place and wifi doesn't travel well through my walls.
That's why I why I prowl through hotukdeals, looking for stuff like this, its simply a lack of technical knowledge and guesswork by me.

Try them, my post above was meant as a reply to you, should be able to return if don't resolve. Don't forget to turn off wifi on your old hub. Generally peace of cake to set up.

I had to send mine back couldn't connect to the internet.Superhub in modem mode going to a asus n66u rt router plug it into that got the solid blue light connected through the app but no wifi

Would you not be better off buying two packs of two. Then flogging the spare?

Yup, some of the richest people I know are also the best at getting return on their cash via rewards credit cards / cashback / vouchers / deals etc.

You are completely wrong, I am afraid. You would only need one Ubiquiti unit to be hardwired while the rest can be daisy-chained to it completely wirelessly. Furthermore, you will likely only need one of their LR (long range) units to kick the backside of multiple ones of this BT rubbish.

Cheap ap’s without cluod management, no roaming available in the same ssid in wlan area, also without wpa2 krack patch firmware... only noob without any wlan knowledge can recommended this product....

think about what you are trying to cover, one plugs into your router, then the other two are to cover your dead spots, do you need two to cover or just one dead area, we have one for our front office and one for the rear, the upstairs one covers our meeting room and supplements front office and courtyard, three gives us great coverage, you can always return the three and re-order as a two?

For an extra £20 I'd definitely be getting 2 x 2 packs...

So...bought the 2 pack. Tried it and tested it with my Virgin Super Hub 3. Took some time to get it to work then with some googling discovered that it will not work on modem mode. Just need to disable the Wi-Fi on the VM. Then was doing the testing and discovered that they are giving the same performance as the BT Wi-Fi 600 extender I currently use. Also they don't seamlessly switch like how its described. Also so the speed test on these were embarrassing. Tried them in deferent rooms to make sure i wasn't doing it wrong all the lights were blue with good to excellent range between them. Also I could not switch channels to decrease network congestion nor change/split the 2.4ghz and 5ghz. If at least I was to able to do the latter then I would have just kept them but unfortunately boxed up again and ready to return.

Whole home is pretty good value for the money and I've had no problems with mine they have being running solid for over a month now. A lot of the people in these whole home deals bring up Ubiquiti unifi but fail to mention how much they actually cost. Just for one Ubiquiti Unifi UAP-AC-HD (which has the same wifi spec as whole home) will cost your £300 that is not good value to me, I can get 6 whole home discs for that price.
