I have this and it has been absolutely flawless. One unit downstairs (plugged into router) and one upstairs providing good coverage in a regular sized detached house. The App is very slick and allows setting family permissions, reports your average speeds, traffic prioritisation and port forwarding. I'm not sure it is the fastest of the Mesh systems, like Ubiquiti or Orb, but it has given rock solid connectivity. Highly recommended if you have flaky wifi.
As you said it is not the fastest of the mesh systems and is now considered 'old' compared to the new orbi

But does the job for most peoples requirements and you probably have to pay an extra £100 for a 'better' one.

hot.
Installed these yesterday from the Argos deal (free delivery to local sainsburys, next day having ordered at 8pm). Very happy, was starting to get more and more issues with VM Superhub2ac and regularly rebooting twice to resolve, often either all Wifi or all wired LAN devices would loose connection.

Make sure to stick existing router into Modem only mode to avoid double Nat, which unfortunately means you loose switch ports on VM hub, except one for the Google Wifi primary. Had to buy an extra switch (the 8-port metal Netgear is £15.99 currently on amazon:
amazon.co.uk/gp/…PKO
recommend it), so where I had just the Superhub before, I now have 3 devices (Google, VM and Switch), something that may be a problem for some locations so bare that in mind, but no issues for me as all mounted to the rear of highriser bed in kids room.

Very happy, very robust, happy to see they added subnet options, as would have been a nightmare if I has to change my IP addresses on some devices (hardcoded SQL library), one thing still lacking is more advanced options for routing and firewalls, but there are so features I'm not fussed. Parental controls are excellent, pausing devices, guest network with allocated device connection, remotely connecting and seeing usage, including speed testing (handy for support call to VM just now from work!).

I planned on ethernetting the 2nd unit too, however tried placing without as no great place to run the ethernet to and back to the FireTV I had in mind without being on display. Was surpised how well it worked and as the Wifi down that end isn't for high performance, works brilliantly as is.

TLDR - Would recommend thoroughly
