Came across this deal as I was looking to get one of these for my new house.
Was best price of $299 but dropped over last few days.
This system has pretty good reviews.
If your wiring up a new house you would be better to wire in access point
100%, and these mesh points are not good for gaming at all.
Exactly this. One single Ubiquiti AP is going to crap all over these mesh systems. It's a gimick.
This m5 has access point mode as well, which is a very good future.
Its 2 repeaters in quality. So not as good as 2 wired in access points
You wont get full speed out of the other two units, there is youtube videos that compare mesh wifi with multiple hardwired access points, might be worth checking them out
Is this the same thing at mwave? https://www.mwave.com.au/product/tplink-deco-m5-wholehome-me...
Looks like it is, Google let me down when doing a price search!
Very likely a higher total with mwave though, at least with shipping to SA.
They have standard pickup service
Came out to $261.95 for me using Courier Delivery, so I guess it's same price.
I do prefer getting 'free postage' using Amazon Prime rather than know I'm wasting money on postage. It ends up costing the same but I feel better.
@Rockgod70: Plus Cashreward :)
@Maki: Yep, I remembered to activate this time
Seems they come with EU power adapters. Isn't it illegal to sell without an AU adapter?
Not in Europe…
I bought a 2 pack in January 2019 and it came with AU plug.
This or Google wifi?
I read that although Google introduced the technology other company's have improved it.
I read that about Tenda, not TP Link
for the price you would be better of with buying unifi AC APs and wiring them in at either side of the new house

I already have a Ubiquiti USG, managed switch and NanoHD upstairs at the front next to the modem. Unfortunately, down stairs isn't getting the strongest connection. Connecting another AP via ethernet downstairs isn't an option. Any recommendations for a different solution that doesn't require ethernet connection?
Have you tried EOP adapters?
You can't run a duct outside and down?
