However, with the advent of new technologies, Wi-Fi has also changed a lot.
Wireless routers have got a lot slimmer and smaller than before, but the speed and range are much better than the other routers.

What is Mesh WiFi?
Well, you know what is mesh? A mesh is an inter-knitted and interlaced structure which covers a big area and you can see how well the fibers are woven into each other.
A Mesh Wi-Fi system takes more than one routers. One main router and two sub routers weave a net or mesh of internet for you. This is kind of a setup that you use only in case you have a small office or a big house.
In this blog post, we are going to discuss 4 top of the line Mesh Wi-Fi systems: Google WiFi System, Netgear’s Orbi, Eero Home WiFi system and Linksys Velop WiFi system.
So, Without further ado, here’s the review.
Google WiFi vs. Orbi vs. Eero vs. Velop: Reviews
Google WiFi System Review
Considering how all big companies were already into the WiFi router manufacturing business, Google and Apple also followed the suit.
Google takes the credit of the market’s most uniquely built and effective Mesh WiFi system. It is a complete system and it is unique in many different ways that you cannot compare to other products.
It comes with three small and lookalike units. However, one of those units is primary and the remaining two are the secondary units.
You connect the primary unit with your modem and then it ensures equal supply of internet to the secondary units.
This way, you get three units to spread WiFi mesh throughout your home or your office. Make sure that you evenly distribute the units to have a bigger and better-connected internet supply mesh.
Here are the pros and cons of Google’s WiFi system.
Netgear’s Orbi WiFi System
If apart from Apple’s Airport Extreme Base Station, if there are any Mesh WiFi system that challenges Google’s WiFi system in terms of cool looks, it is Orbi from Netgear.
The pair of Mesh W-Fi system set looks more like some chic side table lamps instead of what they are.
And they do not only look like magic, they also work like magic. They cover an area bigger than Google’s WiFi system.
Let us take a look at the pros and cons of this mesh system.
Eero Home WiFi System
When you take a look at Eero Home Wifi mesh system, you cannot think of a router. It looks more like those small pocket routers that you keep with yourself on go.
While it does not cover as much area as Google or Orbi Mesh systems do, it still covers 3,000 sq. ft. an area which is good enough for a small office or a medium-sized home.
If you learn to manage the area coverage budget, you can even use it in a big house.
Here are the pros and cons of this product.
Linksys Velop Home Mesh WiFi System
Linksys followed more or less the same style and shape that you notice in case of Apple’s Airport Extreme Base Station.
You get to see 3 white towers’ like routers that you place all over your home and office and the coverage area that you get at the price same as Eero’s is simply unbelievable and more than the coverage area offered by any of the mesh systems reviewed here.
Here is the detail of the pros and cons.
So, that was our comparison between Google WiFi vs Orbi vs Eero vs Velop. Considering important aspects such as coverage, bands, speed, and set up, etc., here is the tri-band Mesh WiFi system that we consider the best.
As it has been mentioned earlier, the way they allotted bands to the units, the coverage area, the throughput speed and how easily you can set up the entire thing within a few minutes, make this mesh system the best among all 4 that we reviewed in this blog post.
