Think you can also get cashback from Quidco (5.5%) or Topcashback (8%).
Hmm tempted to buy one to see how it compares to a Unifi AC.
well...

Are you windows based?
Would this solve my dreadful virginmedia superhub 2 WiFi drops and and improve coverage throughout the house?
some people seem to have had issues connecting android devices to it, from the reviews on amazon.
no idea if thats been sorted out now

You could use a different router and just have the Superhub as a modem
Installed three of these at an office - nothing but hassle.

Is it that bad?

​I'm doing this at the moment with a fairly basic router running dd-wrt but the range and speed aren't the best and I'm not able to use 5Ghz, although it doesn't drop the WiFi. I reckon this might work out better, think I'll try it out

Yup. I've tried the latest firmware, old firmwares, setup from fresh again and again. Just anguish. Avoid!
Had Linksys still been owned by Cisco I might have purchased but I'm just a bit sceptical of the parent brand Belkin. Good price though!

That's is what got me thinking. This WAP is suppose to be business grade but ties with Belkin just screams of dumbing down consumer grade stock. Gotta admit though, quite a big drop in price unless it was never at that price point in the first place.

​I ordered this product on Amazon a month back at around £70 in hope it would solve my issues with drop outs.
I live in a victorian terrace and unfortunately it made little difference....

If you have issues with WiFi in a big and/or old house, and you don't want to run Ethernet under your floorboards, then powerline with WiFi is the best solution I have found. I use the Devolo dLAN 120, but there are other brands, some cheaper. The investment is worth it to save all the headaches from poor wifi and buffering from streaming from my server to my TV room

You need more than one of these types of deals for that kind of house. I'd be looking at a proper Unifi setup if I was you.
Linksys? No thanks I'd rather run around with cables
Ultimately you need to get Ethernet cables routed to the weak areas of a house. Only reliable solution. Then use some unifi AP's. V impressed with them so far
OOS on the 2nd link but the main link still works?

​Have the latest netgear 2000mbps mimo plugs and unfortunately even in the same location as the AP (maybe 40meters away from router) I got only 60mbps....
