Lowest price ever according to the camels. heat added. Already have the BT system (and very happy with it) or would have gone for this.
I have the RBK50, i get amazing coverage through the house and most of our garden. Highly recommend these. Great price.
Watch out if you have Netflix- appears to have problems.
Got the RBK50 - definitely recommend the Orbi series!
You've got to have a mahooooosive house to make these worth it. Surely solving a problem that doesn't exist? I'm in a 3 storey town house and my BT router gives full strength all around
This or the recent BT mesh system?

Construction materials of the house (thick walls) makes a massive difference. Must admit I've got the bt smarthub and it is very good but I can still see why people go for a mesh system.

Surely nobody would buy them if it was a non-existent problem? 3 storey town house often equals small footprint, small garden and insubstantial/flimsy modern construction.

I personally went from part of my house having no signal to having full signal with 2 Orbi units.

Okay so how did we cope before these?
Google WiFi is down to £100 hence why this is down.

Badly, with extender/repeaters, mains adapters, or ethernet cable runs.

I'm in a normal two storey house & the signal upstairs is terrible.
Managed to get the Orbi Rbk50 for £225 on eBay. Is that a good price? Thanks

That's a good price normally, as they sit closer to £300 a lot of the time new, but it was available for £200 during Black Friday (Weeks!) and I think the best before that had been £220.

That's like saying, dial up was fine because we coped! Before I had this system in my house streaming Netflix or kodi was hit and MISS at times in parts of my house. Now I use iptv in the front, the back room and upstairs, with no issues. I can even get perfect signal in my garden building. To say that your bt router does you fine, so nobody else needs one of these is ridiculous. My Virgin router was garbage and not supplying me with the speeds I was paying for and after contemplating moving to bt, decided to use this option.

You could also ask how did we cut the grass before lawnmowers were invented? Used shears, probably. It's progress, don't question it, embrace it

That's good price if it's new. Cheapest it's been is £200
What's this like for getting signals through walls on a ground floor and then to an outbuilding. Currently using one of the standard Netgear ones which is great for the house but not extending to an outbuilding other side of a small garden.

Yeah, but is it a ‘new build’ with hallow walls?
Good deal but waiting for the RBK50 to come down in price as I missed the Black Friday deal.

We have 5 TVs and 3 iPads. Never have issues with Netflix.
Ok, cool if it works for you, but I can’t understand why somebody would leave a review on Amazon saying Netflix thought it was a vpn, if it worked perfectly. Personally, I wouldn’t take the risk of setting it all up, to see if it did work

I'm not sure about this one, as it's the smaller and cheaper RBK30 and I have the more powerful RBK50, but mine is very good at getting through walls.

I have a house that's previously been extended and so there's now very solid external walls inside and it goes through 4 walls from the router to the satellite with no problems at all. When I tested it, the Orbi actually managed to provide faster speeds to there than an Ethernet cable dd.

Netflix also works perfectly for me (everywhere!). Old bug that's been fixed maybe?

And "setting it all up" is literally a 5-10 minute job anyway. Basically take 2 units out of the box, plug them in and connect the Orbi router to my existing modem, update a couple of things in the app/admin page and it's pretty much good to do.

Anyone have any issues with the Wi-fi connection dropping and having to reboot the router
Bought two of these, I've had to do a complete reset yesterday which took about two hours and have had to reboot today. Both are getting returned and I'll stick with my power line setup.
Price has gone back up
