Every year I have been upgrading my eero mesh network. I got my
eero (1st-generation) in 2017. And in 2018, I added an eero Beacon.
In 2019, I am going to replace the gateway node with an
eero Pro. eero Pro – Box Front

One of the main concerns of the
Linksys Velop (Tri-Band) wi-fi mesh system is the price. Linksys Velop (Tri-Band) retails their 1-pack for S$349, 2-pack for S$599 and 3-pack for S$749.
With the introduction of the Linksys Velop (Dual-Band) on 28th July 2018, Linksys manage to solve the pricing problem. It is friendly to the wallet because is about two times cheaper. Linksys Velop (Dual-Band) retails their 1-pack for S$139, 2-pack for S$269 and 3-pack for S$399.

Three years ago, Linksys launched their first MU-MIMO router with the

Fast forward to today, Linksys launched their first DFS router with the
Linksys EA8100 Max-Stream AC2600 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router. DFS stands for Dynamic Frequency Selection. More on that in the later part of the review as that is the only selling point of this router. Linksys EA8100 – Box Front

eero Beacon usual price is US$149 (S$199). But on 27th December 2017, they had a sale where it was discounted to US$99 (S$132) with the discount code BEACON99.
Shipping within the US is free, and hence I sent it to my favorite fright forwarder,
HopShopGo, and get them to ship to Singapore for me. eero Beacon – Box Front
