  • Great product and easy set up
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Mike1981 - January 3, 2020

    I’m by no means technology savvy and I was told by a friend that I needed to upgrade our internet to a new router and a mesh system since we were having issues with all the devises we had connected (20 in total). After purchasing the set that had three nodes in it it was 100 times better all over the house but the out door cameras were having some issues still so I bought an additional node and everything works perfect in a 3,700 sqft house we have no connection issues anymore. Set up took less than an hour and is all done through the app and is 100% fool proof. I would highly recommend this to anybody looking to upgrade their WiFi.

  • Awesome product and easy to setup
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Anonymous reviewer - October 20, 2020

    Set up with my existing Linksys router was extremely easy through the app. The nodes have been extremely helpful, having a multi level house we no longer need to switch between different Wi-Fi networks when moving through the house. Exact answer to all our problems, and we got a great deal direct from the Linksys website! Streaming is steady and great for Voip and gaming.

  • Terrible.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Cdean - September 15, 2020

    You would think the great comments, and the description makes it great, but I bet a lot of you are thinking "How could it be good so small?" and it isn't good. Just like it seems its to small to actually do anything good for your internet connection, I looked up gaming internet, it popped up, I clicked on it and read the reviews which made it seem impossibly great. But what you don't think about it how many bots are in there making it seem good, it doesn't help with gaming, honestly it slowed my internet down, terrible product, I wouldn't buy if I were you.

  • waist of time
    Verified BuyerReviewed by kevin k - September 1, 2020

    Received new Velop to extend my current network. I called tech support after I could not get the product to work. After 2 hours with a tech person who was just reading from a list to trouble shoot then sent me to a specialist who waisted another 2 hours to tell me the product was defective. 4 hours of wasted time to fix a 80 part is ridiculous. tried to have a new one shipped I wanted white they called back and said sorry we only have black i said that would be fine. They called back again to tell me they didn't have any in stock. ridiculous processes

  • So far so good
    Reviewed by Atef E. - September 9, 2020

    Solved my issue of a dead zone in my home office. Very easy to install, especially with the Linksys app. It's also quite scalable should I need to add nodes.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
