You should look into ubiquiti then. Same price, but great coverage.
I personally like Netgear, but I also like Ubiquiti.
Do I have a Netgear R9000 sitting here? Yep.
Do I also have a Netgear R8500 in my second DSL line, coupled with a Netgear D6220 V2 using the modem side, with the R8500 doing PPPoE for me....yep.
And I have a Netgear D6000, a TP-Link Archer C3200, and a Linksys something or the other. Then I have some repeaters and powerline adapters, and some powerline adapters with wifi built-in..
Netgear has a very nice repeater in the EX6150v2. But also, TP-Link has a nice repeater in the RE650.
I've been lucky in my endeavors to acquire the above mentioned devices and really like them all. I recommend each one of them and never had any trouble with the stuff I listed.
One of the best products I've had was a pair of Netgear powerline adapters...something like the
I'd have to actually go look and see which model number it is, but it's a Netgear Av500...those things ran like a champ for over 2 years without me touching them. Never needed a "reboot" or to even be touched...
I just plugged them in and left them. I got a smart tv back in 2013 and needed a hard-line internet to that tv since it didn't have wifi built in..and lucky for me, the option to use Netgear AV500 powerline came up without me struggling too much..so I chose that. I plugged it in, ran it's setup..and finally, 3 years later I moved the DSL line to another room.. and finally decided I could retire the AV500 pair for the time being.
If you want something that you won't have to worry with for extremely long periods, then try a non-wifi powerline adapter...especially something like the netgear with a pass-thru port for power so you can still use the plug and not lose it's outlet...
Very little energy draw...not much heat generation..and they don't need to be checked on constantly to be sure they work.
Half the time I never noticed my powerline setup..and never had any problems with it working with other devices.
I even got to a point where I plugged a router into the client Powerline adapter and used 3 of the 4 ports on the router, plus the 2 ports on the PLA (tho it was equipped with 3 ports).
Since Linksys was bought by belkin, I haven't had much of their products to play with...except the Wemo lights. I do like those, but haven't really touched anything belkin in a long time (or linksys either).
Mostly I play with some new Netgear stuff from time to time (4-5 times a year or so)..and every now and then, a TP-Link thrown in..
It's usually stuff I can't talk about until waaaay after it's been launched, but I'll gladly recommend some products if you have any questions about hardware.
