There are some issues ...

5 May 2018
As another reviewer has said, check out the Netgear Orbi user community forum and go into this with eyes wide open. Orbi has almost twice the number of negative reviews on Amazon compared to other Mesh systems. Approx 1 in 5 users are unhappy. However the majority (80 are pleased with it.

The RBK50 Orbi stands out from other mesh products by having faster speeds, longer ranges and four Ethernet ports on every router and satellite. This is largely because it has a dedicated 5Ghz channel for WifI backhaul (connection between the router and Sats). It can also be wired for backhaul between the router and sats via Ethernet.

This is a great system. It seamlessly switches to the stronger WiFi signal (router or satellite) as we move about the house. Did a manual setup using WiFi (which was easy) for a couple of reasons. Printed the Spark login and other settings from old router and typed them in.

Great WiFi AP, Terrible R

19 June 2018
Been using the Orbi for 2 weeks now. Great WiFi, but terrible as a router.

The Orbi setup was absolutely a breeze, if all you want is good WiFi and a "working" Ethernet (a.k.a wired) connection. The setup was up and running in minutes.

The WiFi speed was up-to-snuff with full saturation of the available bandwidth no matter where I am in the house, unless I locked myself in a room that's as far away as possible from the router or satellite, even then the connection was stable with very usable speed. Very stable connection with no connection drops reported from my family.

The Ethernet connection however is a completely different story...

Can be better

26 April 2018
There are way too many good review / comments over internet about Orbi, with this price it suppose to be good. However, i strongly suggest you to get on Netgear support forum and read some posts to get more idea of pros and cons. It is excellent when it works as it should, but it drives you nuts when it doesn't. A bit of IT knowledge is required if you want to play with the settings and firmware, or troubleshooting when it doesn't behave.

Worth every cent

21 April 2018
My home office deals with a lot of video content. Our previous system would get bottlenecked when too many devices were running from it. Got this. Streaming multiple uncompressed files from the NAS to various displays, transferring huge files from anywhere in the very large home / office... everything is great. Get it if you need a reliable, fast network.

Great - when it works.. but restarts constantly

9 September 2019
After 2 weeks of mucking about trying to get Orbi to work at home - I think it's safe to say it's average at best. When it works in my environment it's amazing - full powerful fast signal throughout the house - way better than what I could achieve with WiFi repeater etc. But... Orbi just restarts randomly every few hours and has drop outs of the WiFi / Internet frequently. I've had support tickets open with Netgear since I got the device - done everything - including full flash of firmware, a multitude of advanced settings and combinations of frequencies etc.. it's definitely better than at the beginning, but it's still drops 4-6 times a...

Four level house No dead spots

23 August 2019
Purchased two weeks ago and so far no probs. Set up was easy ... Base Station ... used laptop (entering 192.168.1) instead of using App and then instructions given by PBTech for my ISP were identical. Satellite was then just a power up and wait approx. 2mins before syncing by pushing sync button on Satellite then laptop .. all up and running in 15mins. The speed is pretty good on the floors where the Base unit and Satellite are situated (automatically on 5G). The two upper levels use the 2.4G and speed ranges (up and down) between 48Mbps and 100Mbps. The Orbi works out which devices need what so AppleTV, Chomecast and Smart TVs all...

Great system, however having experienced a 3 pack Mesh, this more expensive item does not seem to provide the coverage of the slower spec RBK23 systems.
Still very good value for money just the same when purchased via PB Tech

Flawless setup

29 July 2019
Purchased this over the weekend and have been extremely impressed by it. No wifi dead spots in the house anymore, and the range outside the house is much further than it used to be. One thing to note if you have products that run on the 2.4G channel, you may need to play with the advanced settings to get them to work. Our Ring 2 doorbell wouldn't recognise the wireless network until I manually selected a channel lower than channel 11 on the 2.4G, and I set the 20/40Mhz co-existence to be disabled. Once I did that, the Ring 2 doorbell installed as it should. I believe this is a known issue with Ring 2 doorbells and Mesh networks.

6 June 2019
I’m very happy with the stronger wifi signal- had used other products and this one by far the best. However, I couldn’t manage to get my chromecast connected to it. Customer support is promised when you register your product( with an australian email contact address)- is just not happening. Have given up to try and get some customer support. Seems the Orbi isn’t compatible with chromecast. Other than that I’m very happy with this router/ satellite system
