this afternoon I went into Officeworks to buy a mouse when I came across the Netgear Orbi RBK12 AC1200 on the clearance table for $77.25 (Original $329 took that with a grain of salt). Part of me wondered why it was so cheap (the box was sealed but maybe it was a return and Officeworks reshrinkwrapped it), however, I already wanted to buy a Wi-Fi mesh since the master bedroom has poor Wi-Fi and drops out. After some quick researching, it seemed better than the Tenda MW3 I was going to buy so I bit the bullet and bought it.
I asked one of the staff whether I could refund this and she said yes as long as it hasn't been opened so now I want to thoroughly research it before I open and use it.
So with that being said what are your thoughts on Netgear Orbi RBK12? Am I going to encounter any issues with not achieving acceptable speeds, dropouts, it dying in 2 years time etc or is this a decent mesh system?
I use NBN 50 but have been currently upgraded to NBN 250 for 6 months.
Looking forward to seeing whether this deal was too good to be true
