The Multy X is a two-piece tri-band AC3000 mesh Wi-Fi system with a dedicated backhaul band.

You can only use the Multy X app to set up your network, but it offers helpful tips like telling you if your satellite unit is in a bad location.

While each Multy X unit is larger than most mesh devices, they look normal enough to place out in the open -- which should give you better Wi-Fi coverage.

Each mesh device has one gigabit WAN port, three gigabit LAN ports and one USB 2.0 port, but it doesn't support network storage.

You can't use a web interface to customize your network, but the app has a variety of features for testing your speed and managing some settings.

During testing, I saw consistent speeds from both mesh devices, but its top speed was only about average.
