We started with a Netgear Nighthawk, as recommended by Spectrun/Time Warner technician. With a $240 price, I was very disappointed in the Speedtest. We were getting around 35-55Mps, which is pretty good. When we tested it far away in a single, level home, we were getting poor signals. Granted, there was about a 75 ft distance from the router. I had been reading about mesh WiFi, and we decided to give the Netgear Orbi a try. Since there was a 14 day return window, we went ahead and bought it at $282. It was extremely easy to set up, and the speeds we are getting are exceptional. It was placed directly next to the Netgear Nighthawk. The speed tests were giving us 117 mps where we could hardly get a signal. Needless to say, the Netgear Nighthawk was returned. We have had the Netgear Orbi for a few weeks now and we are extremely satisfied with the results.
