[LatitudePay] TP-Link Deco M5 3-Pack $174.10, Deco X20 $399.10 + KC115 IP Camera via Redemption + Delivery/ C&C @ The Good Guys

HOUSE10

Original Coupon Deal
$50 off $150 spend with Latitude Pay

With a free KC115 via redemption the TP Link Deco M5 looks like a fantastic deal if you're looking for a light mesh with easy setup ie. for your folks, a second home etc (or you don't want to pay too much!) or you only use your wifi for mobile devices and you have use for a free IP camera for monitoring. If you've got a large home with multiple users you'd be best looking at at least the X20. Personally I'm still rocking Asus AI Mesh with AC but my home is all Ethernet linked and I use the wifi for portable devices and I find it fine for now.

Note that there's another redemption deal on X60s and other routers that I haven't covered if you've got more to spend and you want to do more research.

  • Pity no latitude pay.

  • That’s a good price for M5 - debating to changeover to this from my M3….

  • The Deco x20 3 pack is $499 before 10% off. How do you get $399.10 after the discount code?

    Edit: Latitude Pay reduces it by $50 as well.

  • +1

    Deco X20 2 pack comes down to $219.10 after discount code + $50 LatitudePay.

  • Up to 5 business days to verify identity with Latitude. Otherwise I would've nabbed some M5s.

    • I just applied for Latitude Pay just then, was approved instantly - so if you really want the M5s you could give it a go. No way I can guarantee it will be the same for you though.

  • Don't fall for the WIFI 6 marketing, firstly not many devices support it, secondly, WIFI 6E is meant to surpass it quite easily. I went for the TP Link M9 Plus (3 pack), over the X20. More than happy to recommend it, great coverage and speed throughout the house.

      Just because there's not much support now, doesn't mean there won't be in the future. Also, people tend to hold onto their wifi routers for many years. I can see wifi6 adoption becoming mainstream in the next 2-3 years. Pretty much all high end phones have wifi6 support now, while mid-range are slowly adopting it. Not too mention latest gen laptops are equipped with wifi6 now.

      • +1

        Yeah I get you, but with WIFI 6E infiltrating the market already, you're more likely to see flagship devices be compatible with 6E. Meaning your WIFI 6 Mesh, in a few years would be considered old, and won't get maximum performance out of your devices.

        6E is compatible with 6, but not the other way around. So instead of getting a WIFI 6 router, save some money, get a 2.5ghz/5ghz with proven excellence, and upgrade to 6E straight, so both you WIFI 6 and 6E compatible devices are working at maximum threshold.

        Unless you absolutely need WIFI 6 compatibility now, then sure, rather than that, it doesn't make sense.

          With 100mbit being the max internet for a lot of people I think AC still makes sense

          M9 plus would be fine for a small to medium sized house or unit and M5 for a larger house with lower speed coverage

          I picked up the M5 kit for a friend who doesn't need high speed having a baby and the free camera will work very nicely for monitoring

          I'm skipping Wifi 6 too since I don't have gigabit internet yet and I'm all cabled anyway

          I can see where if you're not cabled more back-haul is needed but the cost of some of these systems is so expensive enough for me to consider cabling it anyway

          By the time I become a gigabit power user I'll probably be buying the next gen devices like 6E anyway having to upgrade my entire router set

          At a couple of hundred to tide people over until they make other plans this seems like a good deal

        • Wi-Fi 6 can do over Gigabit and that is plenty fast for our <Gigabit speeds.

          Wi-Fi 6E has other benefits than speed however Wi-Fi 6E is under industry feedback and requires approval before any routers go on the shelf in Oz. Wi-Fi 6E routers are double and triple the price of Wi-Fi 6 routers and you need Wi-Fi 6E laptops, phones and so on to go with it. A big hit to the wallet.

          • @Twix: Right so what's the cheapest easy to use reliable Wi-Fi 6 mesh with similar coverage to the M5 you've seen?

            • @s3n: I'd say the Deco X20.

              • +3

                @Twix: Yep so $400 is a fair hike for not much better overall device performance when taking into account most people's use cases who don't have new devices

                I could cable a couple of rooms for that much

                Most people are using the lousy router that their ISP gave them too that's not going to give them great performance

                Just don't see the need for most people

                It was hard enough sale for my friend who I had to convince that $50-100 wifi extender wasn't going to be reliable

                The camera pushed them over the line haha!

                • @s3n: Yep the Deco X20 would mainly benefit those with Gigabit. Cabling is the way to go where possible.

                  Wi-Fi extenders ewww. Good convincing!

  • Jfyi.. Netgear-orbi-ac3000-tri-band-mesh-wifi-system-rbk50, this is on sale at Costco for $170 (not Wifi 6 though)
    Everywhere it's around $400+

    • That’s a great price

      I can’t find it online for that price so is it only in store?

      • Yes, it's an instore only deal at Ipswich Costco, QLD. Not sure of other stores

    • that is good price, Costco online selling $360 but out of stock.

  • Damn ordered the m5's from TG Commerical on the 9th.

  • Is the key difference between the Deco M5 and M9 Plus dual band vs. tri band? If I plan to use ethernet backhaul, I should be ok with the M5 right?

    • And a built in Zigbee hub

      https://www.androidcentral.com/tp-link-deco-m9-plus-vs-deco-...

      Yes the extra band would in most cases for a few simultaneous AC devices be used for backhaul

      If you've many users obviously better to go M9

      I'm planning to use the M5 x 3 for wider placed lower speed focused coverage for a large block maybe get some of the backyard rather than higher speed x 2 coverage

  • I don't have latitude and so i got the M5 pack from Wireless1 for $225.40 (code: Networking8 + free delivery) as TGG were charging $8 post making theirs $232 in total.

  • Can anyone confirm the Deco m5 is getting the kc115? Not the kc105?

    The T&C state it receives the kc105
