What customers say about "Key Specs"
TP-LINK Deco M5 Whole Home Mesh WiFi System (Pack of 3)
  • Step up TP link and hey presto, we have decent speed WiFi throughout the house, plus some of the outbuildings.
  • Unobtrusive, took just 15 mins to set up and brought my WiFi speed almost to the same level as a wired connection.
  • Best ever used home wifi .. very easy to setup and top speeds across our house.
  • Fast in the room the initial deco was installed. Deco in next room is only getting speeds of around 10% of original. Actually slower than my virgin router from the other room.
  • Excellent in initial room - very poor in room 5-10 metres away.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
TP-LINK Deco M5 Whole Home Mesh WiFi System (Pack of 3)
  • Each of the three disc are identical in size. The one you choose to attach to your modem becomes the “main” one.
  • Small size but powerful and easy install.
  • Super happy with this wifi system so far and its also smaller in size and the price is fair for three units.
  • The Deco system comes with three small units, which are each the size of a small plate.
  • It is so lightweight that even weight of slightly dangling, connected Ethernet cables can actually put it off balance and make it tilt.

What customers say about "Network Specifications"
TP-LINK Deco M5 Whole Home Mesh WiFi System (Pack of 3)
  • I stream 4K content ... my download speeds in the far reaches of the house are 180-200Mb ! Why I never knew about these earlier I’ll never know.
  • I have good speeds around the house. Well done TP-Link.
  • It really works brilliantly. Very easy to install and really does give you a strong fast signal in all rooms.
  • Dead zones and restarting was a routine process. After installing these Decos just 2 filled the house with almost full speed adding the third was just because I could but nonetheless they just work and there are no regrets.
  • Now with Deco I have consistent straight through wifi speed of up to the 73Mbps (again using Speedtest on the device and not the Deco speedtest), rarely going below 60-65Mbps.
