Though this simple router is about three years old, the Wi-Fi 5 standard it supports is much older, so you wouldn’t be missing anything cutting edge. It has stood the test of time, and with features like four gigabit LAN connectors, a USB drive port to discuss content on your own system and an app for remote management, it delivers the essentials. The $58 price for this can not be beat, especially if you’re updating from an even older Wi-Fi 4 version. It has sometimes been a couple of dollars cheaper over the course of its lifetime, but not too much it is worth waiting for still another drop.
It does not support Wi-Fi 6, however, the AC1200 version of this Netgear Orbi is still a solid and dependable mesh router, and it impressed us with surprisingly strong signal power if we tested it out at the CNET Smart Home. Back thenwe called the two-piece version of the system a terrific value at $129, and today it’s back to its Black Friday pricing for the three-piece version with an extra range extender for only $100 ($120, with another $20 voucher employed at checkout).
A three-piece net system like this one is the perfect method to cover a large-size house with a steady, dependable Wi-Fi connection, and $100 is as low a price as you’ll ever see for a well-reviewed, name-brand option that can cover a lot of ground like this .
$130 isn’t an all-time low price for this entry gaming hub, but it’s still the lowest by far at the moment and it appears to be creeping up gradually, so you might want to think about grabbing it — if not today, then during another sale . The Nighthawk AX4 features a dual-core chip and service for 4X4 MU-MIMO links to aggregate quicker speeds to devices with several antennas of their own.
If you’re trying to find a net system on the economical, the most recent version of Amazon’s own Eero dual-band net Wi-Fi 6 router and extender is a superb alternative. It’s available today at a historical Prime Day all-time-low selling price of $129. It’s not the fastest mesh router available, but it’s sound and the price can not be overcome.
