Did you check the RBK 753? Its the Orbi mid-range wifi 6 tri-band. I'm going to try and source this from abroad, will be around 25-26k

 

I am a bit worried about the 40 device limit though. I have many wifi based switches around the house, total count goes well above 50 at the moment. 

I have. RBK752 is similar and that's what mainly available in US as well. Available for 35k in India which is pricey. From US, you can get it for 26k.

I would have gotten it too if I were able to source it.

It does say 40+ devices but I don't think all the 50+ devices will be hitting it at one moment which is what I think they mean by the word "concurrent".

 

RBK50 going for 19k right now.

RBK 753

 

https://www.tomsguide.com/reviews/netgear-orbi-rbk752

 

Says it hits 500Mbps at 15 feet on AX, which honestly isn't that great. You will get same performance on a good AC router (I get full speeds (500Mbps) at same distance with Wifi 5). Plus it only has 2 LANs on satellite compared to 4 on RBK50 kit. Pick what you need best. 

I think if one's looking for Wifi 6, get the RBK852, else stick to Wifi 5. Wifi 6 is undergoing so many revisions that it's probably better to stay put till next upgrade cycle.

Wifi 6E is kind of an addendum to Wifi 6 to use the 6GHz bands.

RBK852 is wayyy too expensive even to pick up from the US. I'm looking for a solution for when my home will be ready to cover about 2000 sq. ft. The way floor plan is, I think using the RBK753 with 2 satellites should give me a uniform coverage through out the house. As for the LAN ports, I will use a switch to add more. All my wired devices will be in the living room, so just need one 8-port switch for all of them. I am also planning to get another switch to connect Cat6 cables which will run through the walls into each of the rooms. This will also help me get a wired back channel. Will have to check feasibility once the interior work starts.

This, it is separate and doesn't have devices supporting 6Ghz as of now whereas a lot of devices already are wifi6 capable such as PS5, iphone etc. For any new purchase I'd suggest getting wifi6 as even cheap routers have it

It’s all very costly affair. 10 years back we used to think router above 3K is expensive and here we are talking about mesh system costing 30k.

I pretty much have decided on the mesh system I want but with that I need a great standalone router too for my sister's house

Any suggestions? Range is key.

Thanks why is the mx so expensive compared to belkin 

It’s made of aluminium, and 15A spike buster is not easy to come by (not there by Belkin). I needed to run my RTX2070 Super gaming PC along with 32” 4K monitor and 3.1.2 soundbar off the spike buster, so I needed the 15amp one.

Can anybody recommend good iPad repair shops in Delhi/NCR ? I need a battery replacement for my iPad, and have booked a slot with Rapid Repair. In general, looks good. 

My previous experience with some phone repairs in some shops in Noida has not been great.

Any other repair shops recommended ?

Hi fellow community ,

I am new here. First of all a big sorry if I am disrupting the community standards.

I am getting an Xbox one X from ❤️ .

I would like to know the options  about choosing a 27/24 inch 144hz gaming monitor or 32inch HDR10 Enabled Hd(60hz) ready TV.

 

My room is small and there's is 10 feet distance between the TV/MONITOR and my reliable sitting position.

 

WOuld like to use for streaming Netflix and  prime 

Putting more priority in Performance and  visual quality as well as viewing angle also.

 

Thank you 

happy Sunday

Forget about HDR10 monitors, HDR of an form isn’t good in most of the inexpensive monitors. If you are looking to spend 70k+ then LG CX/C1 48inch is a better option than any monitor.

 

Example of a new HDMI 2.1 monitor priced at 73.5k But it gas VESA HDR400 rating, not even 600.

I'm doing as it says - but wtf why. should I be worried? I'm worried if I've lost all my data and sh*t.

 

Its a consistent issue. Happening to me every 3-4 days. I switch on PS4, and play once a day.

 

Obviously something's f**ked but any idea what? 

 

Each time I have to re-initialise PS4, re-download Apex Legends, set up my game all over again

Hey everyone,

 

Can someone please suggest a good mechanical keyboard under 6-10K? I may upgrade from my entry level red gear piece. Some stuff I'm looking for is:

  • Full size with the keypad since I'll be using it for work too
  • Keys with the lowest noise option since I may carry it into office later this year (I think one type of key produces the least sound?)
  • Need to buy in INR and the bill has to have my full details (Like and Amazon bill)

Some optional stuff for this purchase:

  • RGB lighting is optional, and I am fine if all lights are a single colour. Just need a way to turn them off when needed
  • Media volume controller Knob like the read gear piece has, I am fine with pressing function + volume up/down too
  • Wrist rest since I can also purchase something separately 

Also, does anyone have ideas for a good quality cooling pad under 5K?

 

Spending all my money before valentine's so I can go broke in front of the GF:fear1:

Saw videos and Amazon listings for many keyboards, confused af between the choices. Some Cosmic Byte and Read Gear models are well withing budget but that won't be an upgrade. Then I saw the Logitech G213, not a mechanical one, but reviews seem positive overall. The other Logitech models are stupidly overpriced in India. :wacko: No clue what to go for...

Need to invest in a great laptop.

 

Use case: Research, lot of video calls, presentations and data science projects.

Won't game much but decent battery and good internals.

 

I know Mac fits the bill but I don't like MacOS and just more comfortable with Windows.

Need good speakers and trackpad.

16" preferred, else 14" is fine too.

 

Budget is flexible but ready to spend if I can get good value for it.

Not too heavy.

 

Please suggest.
