Still can't find any Eero gen2 hands-on reviews. Anyone else seen any? 5 days from launch.

And not a single hands-on review yet. Strange.

Maybe they are embargoed until a certain time today or possibly release day?

Must be. IIRC they had a similar problem during their initial launch. Even so, they've certainly compressed their delay provided they hit 7/2 ship date.

These reviews aren't exactly beaming with positivity and encouragement. May cancel my preorder and stick with Orbi.

Eero Gen 2 shipped today. Can't say that I'm overly impressed with the reviews. And Orbi's beta firmware 1.11.0.8 is solid. More stable than latest production 1.11.0.20 which apparently doesn't contain many of the same fixes.

I'm going to go with the 3 Eero's even though my house would be fine with the 1 Eero and 2 beacons (two of my areas just don't have as much traffic as the primary site).  I'm currently deciding between the Eero, Plume or Ubiquity.

 

More reviews are hitting the net:

      Hey all,
       
      I'm putting together a plan to outfit my home as a smart home.  I want to do this for a couple of reasons.  First of all, I am an electrician and I'd like to make smart technology more a part of my business, as no one in my community does it.  Second, I love smart technology and I want it!  I'm looking for suggestions and tips as to what is going to be the best to not only outfit my home with, but is good to sell in a lower income market (nothing like crestron or control 4). 
       
      I think the essential things to put in to make a home smart would be heating control, lighting control, door control, as well as some control to bring them all together.  Here are my current thoughts, and I'd love to hear what any of you think about these things.
       
      Lighting - Lutron Caseta - I'm a RadioRa2 installer, but I don't have the money to put that into my house, so the next best thing for me is Caseta.  I already have Caseta switches in my home and I love them.  I sell them quite often already and I think Lutron is fantastic.
       
      Heating - Ecobee - I like ecobee in theory because they aren't nest.  Even though I'm a Nest Pro, I just have always liked the look and sound of Ecobee.  Am I completely off my rocker for thinking that?
       
      Door Control - August Lock with Ring Doorbell - Seems like these are the best things out there right now, but this is a category that I know very little about.
       
      Central Control - I use Apple right now, so HomeKit seems to make sense, but I think I'd like to use voice control and so the Echo seems like a good product for that.  Would a Google Home be better?  Again, don't have much knowledge of this section yet.
       
      Finally, I currently have an old Apple router, one of the old airport extremes, and I don't know if I should be thinking of upgrading my router in this process.
       
       
      Thanks for reading my post, thanks for any input you give.

      I've got a NETGEAR AC1200 Wi-Fi Extender, which I use in the back of the house. Back there I've got a Roku, which connects to that AC1200 Wi-Fi Extender. We keep the AC1200 Wi-Fi Extender in the wooden cabinet of the headstand above our heads. We do that because the AC1200 Wi-Fi Extender has blinking lights which interfere with my wife's ability to sleep.
      What I'm wondering about is if Wi-Fi extenders should be kept in the open, especially with the warm summer months coming on?
