Mesh is an expensive fad.

The Amplifi HD is the model below this and does not include QoS and the latency improvements. I've never seen the HD system below £300 and that's been out since around 2016.

The HD system is well reviewed.

Having a shield, this does appeal to me but my current router has QoS options so would be so much better than that?

QoS is just one thing this has. Having tried several Wi-fi solutions in my house. Ubiquiti equipment is the only successful one I’ve had. I’ve gone down the Lite AP and separate router and modem path. However I have confidence in their products.

well apart from millions of home users I suspect at which the product is aimed at.

Business will always favour hard wired solutions but for home use or very small businesses it probably offers a good solution,.

Shame Ubiquti have followed the 'Gamers' route when they already make decent products that are nice and plain white looking... still I imagine there are lots of gamers out there with more money than sense

Well we can agree unequivocally about 'gamer' or 'gaming' being slapped on this needlessly.

I don't think this offers much more than an access point. higher electric cost and similar coverage if placed correctly.

Granted, you would have to run a cable... Most likely with a Poe injector, but I think that's a much cheaper solution

Yes I can't say I'm taken in with the gamer labels slapped on over priced items either. I suspect for most home users that need more wifi coverage would be fine with a proplery setup wap or a regular Ubiquiti access point over PoE would be just as effective as this gamer thing.

I've got a regular Ubiquiti PoE WAP which is super reliable and fitted in middle of house to give whole house coverage from 1 WAP, works well and could be meshed if needed but they've made it a bit too unfriendly for many people to setup.

Thanks for your comments and opinions, maybe it will help someone who wants a more advanced setup and doesn't mind installing cable runs in their home. For this I recommend looking into the Unifi system.

In my opinion, mesh systems are an easy way to ensure good coverage around the home without the need of ripping it up. I've moved into a three storey new build and feel it's the best solution for me.

Poweline adapter would do the same... For a quarter of the cost.
I just don't get spending £200+ on something that you can get for under £100 in a different form

Power line is terrible for any more than point to point use, it never gets anywhere near its theoretical max speeds and gets worse the more traffic you put on it.
Having said that I do run it to one room in the house as I haven't run a cable yet.

I agree, for most home users or small offices that's sufficient. I found my powerline adaptors occasionally dropped for no obvious reason so replaced with hard wired ethernet and a wireless access point.

Jokes aside, thanks for your review... Do you have the HD or this black version?
I've been toying between this and the amplifi HD (white) version. Is the hardware and firmware the same?

I did read that the mesh points are hard-coded to the router is that the case?

Hey, both of them have the same router hardware. The AFI-G is newer and has additional features to improve QoS as well as an improved communication link through the mesh extenders. My understanding is that they are hard coded to the router but you can buy addition extenders to add on. Generally the AFI-G is around £30-40 more expensive than the HD (apart from this deal).

These are more geared towards home consumer rather than businesses due to more basic networking options. The WiFi range though is something else and cannot be beaten by any usual consumer device. Forget the nest and you won't regret it.
Edited by: "Aiadi" 28th Mar
How does this compare to others?
I have the Amplifi HD - It's excellent hardware but has some major flaws. The worst being is that the mesh points are hard coded to the router so if your router breaks out of warranty the whole kit is toast and completely useless. The same applies to this gamer edition.

It's also dumbed down so there's no advanced features you would expect in a modern router.

No VPN
USB ports on the back don't do anything and they have no plan to enable them (Yes seriously) so you can't share a drive on the network without connecting a second router.

Yes they're hard coded so if the router dies the mesh points become paperweights. There's differences in the hardware and firmware. You can check their site for the breakdown amplifi.com/ personally I wouldn't buy this again, yes it's very good hardware but very flawed.
