Bought three pieces today and they give a good first impression. I think they are stylish and generally easy to work with.
Has a device connected with ethernet backhaul and an over wireless connection, and it works well. Tip is enough to power all devices directly during installation, received an error message if not connected device when I would "configure" those that were "delayed". Took a while before I realized it was not relevant.
One question I had, after a review I read, was whether the devices really sync AC standard above 300 Mbit / s. And yes they do. Gets sync at 866/866 Mbit / s which is the max on my computer which "only" has AC protocol.
I do not get any crackling / hacking sound when playing grouped Google Home that someone had problems with on Deco M9 plus V2.
Not 5 plus because you can not see sync speed but what you see is traffic utilization momentary. It is not possible to see the total traffic per purity or similar analysis. However, it is possible to see which access point the units connect to which is good. But, simply think TP-link can develop the app more.
Just an SSID. Is a bit oldschool, so I have to get used to the fact that you do not have an SSID for 5GHz and one for 2.4 GHz. :)
Update July, then update ”FIRMWARE VERSION: 1.2.4 Build 20200527 Rel. 42769 ”I have a problem with the deco that is not ethernet connected. It randomly loses the clutch, and requires a restart to reconnect. Works some day then it happens again. Trying to get Tp-link to understand, but is met by Monkey desk answers.
I hope I'm not the only one who has a problem so it fixes the bug! (If it's not a bug, a device has broken.)
Now an update has come that solves the problem of sporadic disconnected satellites. Everything is stable again. Firmware 1.2.5 Build 20200709. I became part of a community group where we provided feedback to the issue was resolved.
