What customers say about "Key Specs"
Ubiquiti Amplifi HD 4-Ports Home Wi-Fi System AFI
  • Very good product - full house coverage, even with router upstairs.
  • The whole downstairs is now getting excellent speeds.
  • Now we have full strength coverage all around the house and into the garden.
  • Our kit has now been in use for two months and not once have we had to reboot the system - strong, consistent coverage and worth the money given how many devices we connect to it, including home security.
  • I have 3 altogether and boom I have pretty much full speed wifi in my whole house.
Google GA00158-UK Wi-Fi Whole Home System (Pack of 3)
  • A 40mbs increase all because of the single Google WiFi unit. It's just a miracle, amazeballs, incredible!
  • This has sorted out our problem completely with really good wifi coverage throughout the house with speeds pretty much the same as if I was standing by the router.
  • I got the mesh units up and running and talking to each other and apparently all giving very good data speeds.
  • Easy set-up, good coverage of flat, speeds are good.
  • WiFi connections says it is connected to the WiFi but no speed at all .network dropping off . Happens on all my devices.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Ubiquiti Amplifi HD 4-Ports Home Wi-Fi System AFI
  • Best ui, small, easy set up, get wifi thru whole house without ethernet ports throughout.
  • Replaced my nighthawk, its just as fast with much smaller box and mesh range covers my whole house instead of half.
  • Great design and minimalist size. Best looking router I seen so far.
  • I like the small size and as a blind customer, the setup process was simple and accessible.
  • The satellites are large and ugly and easily knocked off their bases. Greatly excessive packaging.
Google GA00158-UK Wi-Fi Whole Home System (Pack of 3)
  • They are small in size and unobtrusive sitting on a living room table. Very pleased with this product.
  • It is the size of a traditional whiskey glass, and weight just about the same.
  • I like the small size of the units though, and the scheduled offline times for devices + parental filtering.
  • My only criticism is the big price tag and the big size of the devices. I expected the "pucks" to be much smaller to easily hide away.
  • I completely underestimated the size of the routers... each one is fairly substantial and definitely stand out when plugged in in a visible location.

What customers say about "Network Specifications"
Ubiquiti Amplifi HD 4-Ports Home Wi-Fi System AFI
  • Since upgrading our home WiFi to this we no longer have any dead spots in the house, get our full download speed in all rooms and have no signal drops.
  • Its excellent and provides great coverage across our three storey house. Directing the satellite aerials at the base station made material difference to speed.
  • I'm getting a 50 Meg WiFi connection even at the far end of the house.
  • You can't have your choice of separate SSIDs for 2.4Ghz and 5GHz: instead it suffixes the one you choose.
  • You can't disable 2.4GHz or 5GHz guest independently of each other. This makes it unsuitable as a drop-in replacement for anything other than a very simple existing setup.
Google GA00158-UK Wi-Fi Whole Home System (Pack of 3)
  • Seems that it more than doubled my wifi bandwidth, and has removed all the dead spots. Can highly recommend!
  • I like the fact that Google Wifi uses the same network name for both 2.4/5Ghz bands, it's a nice feature which allows devices to select the band automatically.
  • Super easy set-up, convenient app to monitor things from, 2.4 and 5 settings are combined so no more switching to the faster on.
  • The google wifi puts out a simultaneous 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz signal and each of your devices can choose with signal it needs and if your device can do both, it will choose the frequency with the strongest signal.
  • Smart home sockets mostly use 2.4 GHz and typically require the managing device to be on 2.4GHz. iOS devices connect to 5Ghz. Looks like google is using this to force us all to Android. This surely is an anti-trust violation.

What customers say about "Features"
Ubiquiti Amplifi HD 4-Ports Home Wi-Fi System AFI
  • The kit looks cool and is user-friendly; so simple to tap the screen on the router to scroll through various read-outs such as download speeds.
  • It has a number of ports so you can plug in plenty of ethernet cables.
  • The app made it very easy to set up the system.
  • The mesh extenders have small LEDs which light up depending on the signal strength; I moved one to a better spot for full-strength coverage. The app also shows you how well the system is working.
  • Does what it says. Easy to install, good coverage and simple status monitoring via an App (not a browser).
Google GA00158-UK Wi-Fi Whole Home System (Pack of 3)
  • Software wise, it's more than functional, and allows you to see all the devices on your network, as well as gives you an idea of the speed.
  • The app works well and helps you get the hubs in the right place. It does things behind the scenes which make sure you get the best signal.
  • The app, shows all connected devices, shows if they are using the wifi and how much.
  • The units look great, the app is very well designed and easy to use.
  • There are no advanced settins on the Google wifi app which is a shame. I get why not. It is meant to be plug and forget.
