I got the 3-pack eero Pro 6 for US$389 (S$535) as there was a discount a few weeks back. If not, the usual price is US$599 (S$823). Since eero doesn’t ship to Singapore directly, you must go through a freight forwarder. In my case, I am using my usual HopShopGo. Shipping to Singapore is an additional US$55 (S$76), which excludes the 7% GST you have to pay since the item and shipping exceeds S$400 in value.
Linksys Atlas is a new series of wi-fi mesh systems from Linksys after Linksys Velop.
The first wi-fi mesh router in the series is the Linksys Atlas Pro 6.
One might think that based on the model numbers MX4200 and MX5300, the Velop MX4200 might be a more inferior model. But it is actually not true, and in the real world, you might not notice the difference.
Linksys Velop MX5300 Wi-Fi 6 was launched in Singapore on the 20th February 2020 for S$569. At launch, it was exclusive to Challenger and Hachi.tech. Other retailers started selling from 20th March 2020 onwards.
In 2019, I am going to replace the gateway node with an eero Pro.
The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac was launched in Singapore this week at a recommended retail price of S$199.
You can get it from Storage Studio on Lazada at a slightly higher price of S$220. Stocks are a little constrained right now but expect more stocks to arrive in January 2019.
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.
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.
Finally gotten my hands on Google Wifi.
Google Wifi was launched officially in Singapore on 31st August 2017 through a partnership with StarHub. Singapore is the first country in Southeast Asia to introduce Google Wifi.
Aztech AIR-706P is the first mesh router from Aztech that was launched in July 2017 and is retailing for S$269.
The AIR-706P is a budget router that can expand its range using another AIR-706P via mesh network rather than a wi-fi extender.
