My experience is consistent with all the reviews I've read. The Orbi RBK series delivers BLAZING FAST speeds in my home, unlocking the full potential of my 2Gbps subscription. Even though it delivers strong coverage, somehow the walls in my 1350 sq ft apartment unit are quite thick so I needed to purchase a 2nd satellite after I discovered that my RBK852 (one main + one satellite) still resulted in some dead spots. The set-up is fuss-free and very easy. Highly recommended for speed demons.
I’d have given it a 5 star and here’s why. Great chat support and fast delivery. I think the syncing process could be improved. There were times when my network was suddenly disconnected and wasn’t sure what was going on. I had a very poor signal in one of the further room and this satellite just boosted my signal big time! Happy customer. Would I recommend this product? Definitely.
This product isn't available here in the Philippines yet so I'm glad I have few friends in SG to help me ship this item. I have RBK852 and it wasn't enough since our house has thick concrete walls and flooring which is pretty normal built here. I have installed the main router at the 2nd floor of our house and one satellite on the other end at the same floor. It couldn't reach the ground floor so I really need satellites. Now I installed another one downstairs and another one on the attic, both thru wired back-hauling since it really can't penetrate the concrete floors. Now our whole house has WiFi signal in every corner and getting the subscribed speed from our isp which is 300mbps. Current setup is RBK850 and three RBS850 (one wireless back-haul and two wired back-haul) in our house with a roughly 400sqm floor area. A quite expensive setup (costs around US$1800 all-in) but it's all worth it.
I bought a RBK50 kit (1x router, 1x satellite), but it wasn't enough to cover our landed house here in SGP (3x floors, concrete floors and walls etc.) So it was great when Netgear released the standalone satellites (RBS50's). Now we have 1x RBR, 3x RBS config. We're getting 300+Mbs in every nook and cranny of the house. 3x people can browse/stream/game seamlessly. I was going to go with the Google Nest Home Wifi setup, but held out for the Orbi AX6000 ready solution, so I'd be future proof for a long while from now. Love the setup with the Orbi app, configuring the system, adding satellites was a cinch. Nice job guys! Would def. recommend to anyone who wants bullet proof, future proof and super fast wifi covering a large or difficult space.
