    The design looks quite good. Anyone thinking of getting one of these?

    It depends on the little details. I am in the process of building a house and I'm probably going to need a couple of different access points with a main router down in the basement. I want to see how these things work in that scenario.

    I'm going to grab one so that my OnHub has a friend. Probably not completely necessary, but improved network coverage is a better network.

    If you're building the house and the walls/ceilings are open, then consider running conduit for hardwired Ethernet ports. You can add a standalone access point almost anywhere.

    It would be interesting if Google offered a ceiling mount bracket. With new construction, you could wire power to the access points and mount them on the ceiling.

    Well, I changed my mind. Went with the Orbi. Got tired of the poor Internet connection and waiting on these. Also, looking into how Orbi works compared to these, it seems there's pretty much no way these will offer better performance for my use case. I still look forward to seeing how these things work for you guys.

    Just pre-ordered a 3 pack. I do have the eero now and while it does give me good coverage over my house the throughput speeds are not as fast as my previous standalone routers. And this is doing speed tests right on the one connected to the modem. So I'm going to give this a try to see if I can get the coverage I need AND the speed (or close as possible) I pay for.

    Can pre-order from Google, Amazon, Best buy and Walmart

    On Google store I order the three pack and the estimated delivery date is Dec 8th to 13th so in three to four weeks.

    Just ordered the 3 pack via the Google Store. Be here by Christmas. The reviews are pretty positive so far too.

    I am in the UK.

    I have ordered two 3 packs from amazon.com. They are showing as unavailble but amazon told me they expect stock by the 20th and volunterily without me asking upgraded international shipping to 2 days and removed the shipping charges! I wasn't even complaining. I just asked the online chat when it would be in stock. Great customer service!

    It seems that no one has stock unless you pre-ordered. And amazon is the only way to get it to the UK until it is released.

    I have two locations I want it for; my parents house and my own flat. I believe two units will do the job in both locations. Which means I will have two left over!

    All I need to do is buy 6 UK USB-C power adaptors to power them!

    Nice. I am highly debating ordering from Best Buy and picking them up on Friday.

    I was going to, but they are sold out everywhere. If Google is going to be serious about producing hardware they need to get better at stocking during their initial product rollout.

    Check Bestbuy online in the morning. They seem to restock each morning.

    Have a netgear r7000 upstairs and have decent coverage but downstairs weak, I have a powerline that goes to a switch downstairs for TV, etc. Was thinking this might be a option for downstairs. Could I have a google wifi hooked to switch downstairs with and a sister one to cover that part of house. Any thoughts?

    Not sure what you're asking.

    Huge (for the area) single-floor house (2,400 square feet, and I'm the only thing here larger than a small insect). Even at the extremes, I get enough signal for full speed. I never thought about that when I was looking for a house - it has a huge garage - both cars are in a single-car garage, and it's filled with tools and workbenches - the "porch" is fully enclosed (and 37'X16'), so I'm outdoors but no bugs, the kitchen is so large that 3 chefs could be working in there at once without being in each others' way - and my router covers the entire house. Just luck, I guess. Now if someone would kick Samsung to come out with a new Note that was actually designed properly ... and no router is going to fix their terrible (so far) design.

    I have 6... I bought a 3 pack for parents home and my place; but I only needed 2 in my parents and I imagine 2 at most at mine. Which means I will have 2 spare for wifi emergencies in my car at all times! Lol

    Amazon have it as "ship when available" so place an order there. They wont charge until it shipped but they are very good at getting things to you ASAP.

    Very easy. Setup is just opening the app and following exactly what it says. Just don't try and work ahead of it.

    Performance on my Google WiFi was great. I went down to just 1 router since it covers my house so the 3-pack wasn't fully needed for me.

    I agree; great performance and easy to set up. Massively extended the range of my Wifi so the Outdoor Nest Cams do not cut out anymore and I have wifi in the driveway and that is on 2 units just like before 3 is overkill. Just a shame the actual connection I have is so slow.
