Nice bit of kit, both aesthetically and in functionality. It's not going to be for everyone, but a worthwhile shout either way. It's a simple set up, just connect it up, use the iOS / Android app to complete the set up and off you go. You can access all the advanced setting via the app also.

As for the mesh points, they are basically plug and play, they just take a 30 or so seconds to start working once plugged in. Do be aware they aren't as small as they look in the images. They are connected to the main plug unit via magnets, so if you end up knocking them, they won't just snap, they should just pop off and easily re-attach again.

The main router is actually really sleek looking, the base lights up nicely and the touchscreen lets you cycle through, Real time BW usage / port status / data usage and also a digital clock. Probably one of the nicect looking set ups around imo

Like I say, it's not going to be fore everyone, but I actually really like it and might consider it once a better ISP enters my area Pretty slow here.

If you're lucky enough to live near SCAN, then you can click & collect making it £299.98, delivery on top makes it £305.46 if not.

Scan have a video on YT covering the basics, and you can see how big the mesh points are, but I don't think they are too bad considering what you get out of them.

Excellent! Been waiting for theses to come down in price over £60 off is great. Thanks.
Will this give significantly more coverage than a ubiquiti ac lr?
So tempted, but this unit performs consistently poorly in most mesh tests. If only there was a deal on the RBK50.

Although this is a much better looking set than the RBK50.

Worth checking your local Maplin store. They're selling off their remains RBK50s for c. £197 - they had a couple left in Chelmsford when I picked mine up today. [Ironically I'd been awaiting for the Amplifi HD + 2 Mesh Units (UK plug) to come back into stock on Euro DKs site]

I know. I am torn between looks and smaller size of Amplify vs speed and cumbersome large size of the RBK50.
I live in a flat and i was looking into mesh systems and took my chance in the ac pro and the wireless range means i dont even have to bother with the mesh since it covers even outside, never seen such range and i can see why they are targeted at companies.

So the rbk50s are better for speed? Can you point me to a comparison? Thanks
Equally not for everybody, but If you want power, flexibility and more control you're probably better off getting two AiMesh capable Asus routers.

Shame with AmpliFi for such and attractive base/router, you've got those gawd ugly paddle mesh points.
Just a quick one. You can get free delivery if you are a member of AVForums, so potential for £299.98 delivered.

Just out of interest, with a fair amount of people experiencing drop-outs with mesh kits, or not covering the area stated - then wouldnt something like this suit better?

amazon.co.uk/Lin…BwE

Or even this:

techradar.com/rev…86u

Central location would cover your home, cheaper and more powerful with great speeds?

I'm asking out of interest as I am trying to figure out what to buy for a new home to ensure I have full WiFi coverage - so any advice appreciated in this area.

This kit isn’t the fastest or cheapest, that’s for sure.

I’ve watched and read a lot of reviews. This is the only one that reports consistently good strength with no or very few drop outs.

Ubiquiti have a good grounding with this tecn from the commercial side so I feel confident it will be a well supported product.

Clearly I can’t comment on the other products and they may well be better in several aspects.

I know for me, my fibre speed is reasonably poor anyway, but I need good coverage for my property due to IP cameras and a whole host of the usual WiFi reliant devices throughout the house, this I’m confident will sort me out.

Should I come back eating my hat, I’ll let you know! Mine arrives Thursday so will give it a good test.

Thanks for reply, much appreciated.
I'm currently looking at a complete new set up, but as the new house is still awaiting its roof I have time. I'm happy to hard wire Cat5/6 all around the house, obviously want good WiFi for ipads and phones and like yourself I want some IP Cameras, inside and out but I need to do my research in this area still. Ultimately I just want strong good internet/Wifi around the house for various equipment.

Be interesting to hear how you get on with this kit!

What are your early thoughts on it Jim?

After spending money on Home plugs then being plagued with dropouts I paid out for a tp-link router to try and improve my woeful Virgin 3.0 Hub. That’s not really doing the trick either so final extreme step is toplough into this Amplifi HD setup!
So had it running for a month now...

Coverage and speed is fantastic. No drop outs so far.


Very easy to set up and the app and features within are great.

I’ve only got 37Mb max speed but on doing speed test it’s getting pretty close each time.

I’m full bars on the WiFi on my iPhone virtually everywhere and only drops one bar at worst now.

Have coverage in my entire garden where I didn’t before and even down the road! For the bit of gaming I do, it’s definitely improved the lag I used to get.

It’s obviously expensive for something that you set up and don’t really pay any attention to, but it’s easy to forget what a great job it does.

Highly recommended.

Any questions or if you want to know how something works on it let me know.

Hi, it provides virtually full strength WiFi coverage throughout your home with little to no dropouts. That said, dropouts can happen with this or any kit due to various factors such as interference from other devices like cordless phones to what type of construction your house is.

You don’t necessarily need this particular kit to solve your drop out issue, this is more about full coverage inside and outside of your property if you have dead spots or poor signal in certain rooms.

Pending which supplier you’re with, look at whether they have an updated router they can supply.

Also, are the drop outs due to the actual broadband coming into the house, as in is your kit actually fine and the provider has issues at the exchange.

If all that is ok and your coverage in the house is good with the router you have when it works, then rather than spend this much, look at Netgear or Linksys routers.

Hope that helps. I’m by no means a whizz with all this, so I’m sure there’s better advice on what to do out there.

Jim
