CNET First Look
The Linksys Velop is not as fast as it is expensiveCNET editor Dong Ngo explains how Belkin's first Wi-Fi system, the Linksys Velop, is just too expensive for its own good.
Hi, guys, this is LINKSYS VELOP. VELOP gives a quick WiFi system, very quickly, a system because it comes with not one but up to three hardware unit. You can use one of them to connect to an inner source such as the broadband modem and it will look like a normal router and that's it. If you live in a small home like 1,200 square feet or 1,500 square feet. But if your home is larger you can put the rest of unit all round that you need here to automatically extend the wi-fi coverage. Quick and easy. Now in terms of performance, develop here is right in the middle between the Google wi-fi and the Netgear Orbi I have here in my testing. [UNKNOWN] it actually [UNKNOWN] among the three. Take a look here, the Linksys mobile app which is the only way you can set up and manage the system gives [UNKNOWN] feature and the feature themselves don't work very well either I'll take ready control for example, you can edit to above website such as Facebook and in this case well I cannot access with using the mobile web browser anymore but the mobile apps still work. That's kinda easily. But don't worry let all wi-fi system that would be improve your update. And for now, the Velop [UNKNOWN] have something that tops them all, the price. Is the most expensive system on the market, costing $500 for three units or $200 for one unit? If you wanted to get two units, $350 Now the Google Wi-Fi [UNKNOWN] $300 for three units. And the Netgear Orbi, $400 for two units. But here's the thing, the two units fo the Orbi has enough Wi-Fi coverage and faster Wi-Fi speed than the three units of the [UNKNOWN] Now the reason why the Linksys develop is better than the Google WiFi because a part from being a dual band WiFi system that include [UNKNOWN] mega hertz band and [UNKNOWN] band for the WiFi [UNKNOWN] to connect to. It also comes with a third [UNKNOWN] band to do the job of linking the [UNKNOWN] together Also known as the back-haul. That means it's bands either need to either receive or broadcast the signal at a time. Not both, which translates into faster wi-fi speeds. Now the Orbi is very similar with one major difference. It's third back-hail band actually has. Twice the power as that of the [UNKNOWN]. And that means you can place the extender you need even further out [UNKNOWN] the WiFi coverage while maintaining faster WiFi speed. So long story short, all things considered, the links developed here is a very effective WiFi system that will deliver WiFi to almost all corner of your home. But it's too expensive. So maybe you should wait for the price to go down before getting your own. In the meantime, I don't see any reason why you shouldn't get yourself the Netgear or the Google Wi-Fi. You save at least $100. If you don't know what to do with that savings, well, just send me direct message. I will give you my mail address. Because I know your PayPal or Venmo And that's because I'm [UNKNOWN] and this has been mostly about the Linksys developed WiFi system. [BLANK_AUDIO]
