Seems to work well. Set-up was un-necessarily tedious 1/23/2020 10:53:05 AM

Pros: Good coverage across my house with three devices
Simple to connect to network once set up -- WPS works okay
Phone-based control app simple to use

Cons: Initial set-up trickier than it had to be (see review)
App a little bare-bones
More physical ethernet ports would be nice

Overall Review: I haven't had these long, but so far they are performing well. Did run into an irritating thing on initial set-up: Set up first device, no problem. Says it needs a firmware update, so I let it do so. Afterwards try connecting other devices to WIFI network, fail miserably. Took a while to find out that they needed to have *their* firmware updated as well to connect. Had to tediously connect the other two devices to the internet and update the firmware. Once that was done, they connected to the network easily. No idea what would have happened if I had waited until all devices were up and running to try and do the update. Anyhow, all is good now, but be aware of that firmware thing before setting up your network.

As advertised and really is 9/19/2019 6:10:01 PM

Pros: Easy setup as long as you use your phone. Loaded the App , followed directions and set them up. Only setup 2 at the moment.. The signal clears my house and extends to the curb.. HAH! Take that Spectum! (Specturm has a broad area wifi sending point literally next to my house and it kills the wifi. ) It's fun having signal in the back of the house and in my workshop!.

Cons: Had to download and install yet another app.

Overall Review: I'd purchase more of these if I needed them.

Works fairly well for my use case. 6/5/2019 8:54:57 AM

Pros: Using with wired back haul and in wireless access point mode. This means I am running my own separate router and switch and each of these Deco M5s have a cat6 network cable running back to the switch. Allowed me to put throughout the house and get good coverage most places.

Cons: does not seem quite fast enough for the steam link; though most will tell you to only run steam links with a wired connection... other devices all work fine. and If I tune some settings down on the steam link it works well enough being only a bit less pretty.
In Wireless Access Point mode there are even less settings. so if you like or need lots of settings or options this won't work for you.

Overall Review: I would get this again. but maybe the next step up version next time; m9 or perhaps a future ax version. just to hopefully increase speed with a few devices. But otherwise works great not having any drops and devices work great!

not what i expected 11/29/2018 12:11:15 PM

Pros: It works, though not as expected

Cons: One of The 3 units acts as a transmitter

Overall Review: Reason for the low review is that you need to keep one of the units plugged in your modem/router. This creates a second network between the decos, not an extension of an existing one. Therefore, you only get two units that you get to position at a distance from your main network gear location. It is not a bad product or anything, just overhyped. Using it to provide internet to my 3 vacuum cleaners and fitbit weight scale because of that. Plan was to use it for coverage in the garden/pool too so i can "go play games outside, on the fresh air", but with just 2 usable units, no dice....

Hi,

Thank you for sharing your experience with our product. The Deco M5 Whole Home Mesh WiFi System is designed to provide a conveniently manageable, central WiFi system for your home with robust coverage, speed, and features. The Deco Mesh WiFi System is not a WiFi Range Extender; it's intended to either replace your existing WiFi Router, or operate in conjunction with your existing router as a Mesh Access Point system. In either case, at least one Deco unit must be connected via Ethernet to your primary router, as is the standard for Mesh WiFi systems.

We would appreciate the opportunity to follow up with you to discuss your particular network environment and help provide a potential solution for your needs. At your convenience, please send an e-mail with your contact information and a link to this review to USSupportTeam@TP-Link.com and we'll gladly have a Support Agent follow up with you directly.

Thank You,
TP-Link Support

Inexpensive mesh router! 10/16/2018 11:37:19 AM

Pros: Simple setup. Covers my 4,000 sqft (single story) home with just three units. Less than half the price of other brands.

Cons: Like others have said, it's pretty light on features. This wasn't an issue for me because I just turned off the wifi on my existing router and plugged these in and used them as WAPs.

Overall Review: I replaced a mish-mash of Linksys, Netgear and D-link routers, WAPs and powerline networking gear with this simple system. Now my entire house is one single wifi zone with better performance and reliability. Can't believe it actually works as advertised. Great value for the money.

Great & Easy to Use 10/1/2017 7:50:25 PM

Pros: - Super simple setup with a smartphone

- So far changing between the "Decos" as I have moved from one side of my house to the other as well as the garage has been trouble free

- Built in security.

Cons: - I would have been nice if there was a way to mount the devices but it has worked great by sitting slightly hidden behind some end tables and other appliances.

Overall Review: - I would definitely recommend this setup for covering large areas.
