This looks impressive.  Another booth to chat with at CES.

Two units for $380 but they are touting a tremendous amount of range.  AVG protection for malware and viruses and the ability to turn off apps just like Circle.  Let me tell you, Circle is nice to have, but built into your wireless system is so much better.  This is nice.

The built in AVG and Circle functionality definitely looks good. With them being so specific as to the technology being used, I can't see them launching without those features like Luma and eero did.

This looks like an interesting device however I have some concerns.

 

1. They talk extender but don't say the technology used such as mesh.

2. There is no Ethernet backhaul for the 'extender' and they don't say if there is a dedicated radio used to communicate or it's shared with the 2.4/5GHz radio? If its shared that' bad as there will be a 25-30% loss in performance on average.

 

Update: Bad news, Just had a chat with online support and those extenders are "repeaters" and not mesh. Well that shortens the list of options by 1
