I was looking for a Gigabit one. Thanks for the confirmation ordered one this morning
Are these generally for bigger houses? I get by with the ISP WiFi router in terms of signal strength but due to other issues want an upgrade. I'm guessing I may be better off with a single dedicated access point?
Are these better than the bt black or white discs?
Would these be better than Google WiFi?
Thought they were nut sockets at first.

are these better than the one posted yesterday for Tenda nova?
I have four of these. They work great (for WiFi). You want gigabit (wired features) get something else
I saw the E4 for £89.99 but I assume they’re worse. I have the Linksys Velops and given I have Virgin Media (which might as well be hard-wired only), mesh networks are a huge benefit.

I want to extend my WiFi across a large house and extension. I have VM with 350mb connection so I want to get the fastest WiFi around my house. The cheaper mesh systems seem to have 100mb connection to main node and would not want to limit this mesh system, Hence I was looking for Gigabit connection. If I wanted to use the furthest away nodes Gigabit connection I would need to run ethernet to them all as I understand with all of these type mesh systems to transfer big files between computers. Am I wrong?
Good price for these, only seen them cheaper on prime day. They do seem to get frequently reduced as part of the big sales though so with black friday coming up I'd be inclined to wait.
I picked a 2 pack of these up from Argos today (as I had some vouchers left) for £89.99, so dearer per unit than this deal. Pretty easy setup and I went for AP mode rather than Router mode. They have resolved the lack of guest WiFi in AP mode with a firmware update. I tried using the ethernet backhaul feature but saw no improvement in the already decent speed so Im unsure if this is working as advertised. There's a review on YouTube which warns that a 3 pack may actually reduce speeds in a smaller house if they are too close together. I've gone for 1 on ground, 1 on first and still get same speed on second floor bedrooms (modern house, no thick walls or ceilings). You can only have a single main SSID and a guest SSID (doing client isolation) covering both 2.4 and 5Ghz which could be an issue on some devices. I usually prefer to split the bands into separate SSIDs. Overall they look to be a decent bit of kit and claim to support 100 devices (I'm at 27 currently).
In fact guest WiFi in AP mode doesn't do client isolation, although it's been promised in a future firmware. I've gone back to router mode.
Would a mesh system work about 15 meters away down the garden to the man cave
