Anyone using an eero Home WiFi System at home? Besides the cost, what are your observations?

Is there some reason that a "standard" wireless router won't fit your needs ?

I opted to go with better Orbi. My Wi-Fi range and ability increased significantly. I also like the Ethernet ports which allow me to hardwire my external hard drive for media server streaming, my 4k roku, my phillips hue hub. Here's a good review of the two

"The Bottom Line The Eero is super convenient and reliable for internet sharing, but you're better off going for a competing system that's cheaper and faster."

BTW ref your motto: my experience with women was sometimes bad judgement but was certainly not worthless [emoticon]

Hey - I never thought of that in terms of experience with women! I can certainly say the same thing!

I just bought the Orbi this week as well and I am impressed. If you take an old router or modem into Bestbuy at the service desk and ask for the trade up coupon you can get 15% off.
