    Very well designed router that is easy to set up.

    • Meshing works well over Ethernet backbone
    • Very easy setup with the app
    • Beautiful design
    • Expand endlessly with extra mesh points
    • Setting up an Ethernet backbone is a bit of a hassle
    • Speed is good, but not lightning fast

    After first having a set with an HD router and 2 mesh points, I switched to 3 HD routers. One of these works as a router, the other 2 as APs that are controlled via an Ethernet backbone. Achieving the latter is not difficult in itself, but do find out beforehand how to do it. If you do not follow the step-by-step plan, it will become a hassle.

    1 router with the 2 meshing points already gave excellent range throughout the house, but with the 3 HD points it is now completely party. Handover of the WiFi signal is going very well, when I walk down the stairs I see the speed slowly decrease, and halfway up the stairs, it slowly rises again, when an AP is picked up one floor lower.

    A big plus is the design. You can argue about taste, but the Amplifi looks a lot better than many of its kind. And the ease of configuration can also suck the competition.

    The nice thing about the system is that it is so modular. I can always choose to add an AP or a mesh point in a place in the house where the range is less.

    • nice design
    • strong signal
    • easy to use
    • Price

    I bought it because my cheap router was not strong enough for my apartment in the city. I first tried another router but I find it too big and ugly, so I bought this router. This router has a very strong signal (without mesh), nice design and is easy to use.

    Uniquiti AmpliFi makes a professional network accessible
    • Easy to set up
    • Huge range for such a small device
    • Easily expandable with other Uniquiti devices
    • Good app, haven't really felt the need to check if there is a browser login yet
    • Just checked, it's there too
    • Configuration through app is easier than through browser
    • It is not yet clear to me whether unify is compatible, for example with the WiFi cameras

    For anyone who simply wants to set up an easily expandable network. To do! Uniquiti makes it very easy, not unimportant is that the price is very favorable.

    Should have bought much earlier
    • design
    • Ease of use
    • Wi-Fi can be switched on or off per device
    • Speed
    • possibly the price

    Meets my needs exactly. In particular, they can decide whether or not to use WiFi for each connected device. Ideal with teenagers at home :)

    • Ground hole is on the wrong side, your antenna is upside down

    Our house was built in the 1970s and the walls are made of concrete, pulling UTP cables was not a solution. So we had to look for a good router that can cover everything.
    After much doubt, I decided to invest in a Mesh router. I started with this base station and installed 2 extra Mesh Points yesterday. The installation of the router is very simple. You install the app on your smartphone, connect the router and you're done.
    Reception at home is top! I have perfect reception from the living room to the bathtub. My speed is between 110Mbps-190Mbps. It never drops below 100, unless you're sitting in the back of the garden (30Mbps).
    In the app you can create schedules so that your children can no longer surf after a certain hour. You can also easily start a guest network for x number of users and a duration of your choice.

    Do you want fast WiFi everywhere in your home? Look no further and order the AMPLIFI. You can always expand with extra mesh points afterwards. Unlike repeaters, you do not lose speed with this.

    Nice, small compact router with stable WiFi
    • Nice design and nice and small
    • Useful Info screen
    • Good stable WIFI
    • Get started quickly
    • Firmware support
    • Slightly limited in functionality

    Started with just the router. At 2.4Ghz a big improvement compared to my old router in terms of range. Wifi throughout the apartment. However, I also wanted a 5Ghz connection everywhere, which of course has a slightly less range. So that didn't work everywhere. Finally bought an AmpliFi AFi-P-HD Multiroom WiFi extension and that now gives a good and stable WiFi in my entire apartment, also at 5GHz.

    Setting up was super easy and done quickly, updating the firmware with regular new features is also much easier than with many other routers. The App on your phone is also super easy, even when you're not at home.

    The disadvantage is here and there some limitations in functionality compared to other routers, but not so many problems for me. Does exactly what I want and need. Just have to be simple and work well stable and this router does that completely.

    World router, very long range and super easy to use!
    • Super quick to install using Amplifi App
    • Excellent performance
    • A feast for the eyes, must be seen!
    • Top support from Ubiquiti
    • No

    After moving to a bigger house, we had a lot of problems with places without a WiFi signal. After reading a number of reviews, we decided to purchase the Amplifi AFi-R (HD) router so that we could always add extra Mesh-Points if necessary.

    The installation is super simple, install the Amplifi app on your phone, connect the router (it's behind my Ziggo modem) and follow the instructions in the Amplifi app, done! No cumbersome web interface with 100 different options, just everything you need is taken care of with the Amplify App.

    The Amplifi app provides a lot of useful information and management of your router (clients, guest network, etc.) is super simple and fast.
    I had some questions about the router specifications and possibilities and asked them via the "chat" to Ubiquiti, super support! Knowledgeable, friendly and . . fast, TOP!

    All in all, very satisfied and impressed with the performance of such a beautiful router that can simply be seen in any interior.

    And of course, as always, delivered super fast by Coolblue

    Nice start for my mesh network at home
    • Option to create a mesh network so you don't have to manually choose a new network every time
    • Looks good
    • Easy to use WPS function

    Purchased because of the option to create a mesh network so you don't have to manually choose a new network.
