4.0 out of 5 starsAnnoyed it was reduced by quite a margin less than a month later, but overall happy-ish...
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 4 February 2023
It's a good product, well packaged, very easy to set-up, the units look very cute and discreet, and works perfectly downstairs even through two external walls and then some, but the limited functionality and options available are very disappointing.
Simple, expected at this price options (like port forwarding) have been traded in for ease of set-up and no-thought use. Plus, when upstairs, my laptop keeps trying to connect to the base unit (which is too far away, so while it says I'm connected I lose internet), rather than the extender less than three metres away in the next bedroom (through an ash wall, not brick).
To correct I've had to turn off my WIFI, turn it back on, and I'm then good for a minute or two, maybe a bit longer, but then the mesh forces my laptop to connect back to the base unit, which while it shows a perfect signal on my device, I lose internet. I've now had to move the extender to sit on my desk, using up my last spare electrical socket, but at least it is finally staying connected with it. Just one option in the settings to select which unit you'd want to always connect to would have resolved this.
One last thing, Amazon dropped the price considerably a month later. I'm fairly happy, but also very disappointed. A complicated four stars. I would have had three if not for the speed of the set-up and downstairs reliability.
