Customer Reviews

Deco M5 Whole-Home Wi-Fi System (3-Pack) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable, Consistent, Secure Wi-Fi for Large Homes. The Deco is simple to set up. It's plug and play. It provides the latest features and functionality. Setup requires a device running Android 4.3 or later, iOS 8.0 or later, and Bluetooth 4.2. This is a review of a free demo unit received from TP-LINK, for testing and feedback, as part of their review program. Submitted as part of a free sample program. The Deco covers my entire home with perfect Wi-Fi, providing whole-home connectivity, even in my large old brick multi-story house that has plaster wire-lathe walls. Deco units cover every nook and cranny of my house with reliable and consistent Wi-Fi. That includes a basement, cellar, first floor, second floor, attic, deck, driveway, and garden. There is never any buffering when streaming Netflix. Mesh networking is seamless. There is a solid Wi-Fi signal reaching into the far corners of my home. I have lots of Wi-Fi gear connected. Everything works perfectly. Deco Wi-Fi was the key to making all these products work better for me. The Deco M5 is an ideal fix for Wi-Fi dead spots or dead zones. It's a good solution for places in your home that have slow internet speed or see a signal strength drop. Anyone who has ever been attacked and devastated by a virus, malware, or ransomware, will value the added security that the Deco offers. The Deco protects all the devices on your Wi-Fi system. It is like putting a security fence around your home. The Parental Controls within the Deco app are intuitive, robust, extensive, and a distinguishing feature. They insure that your kids have a safe browsing environment when they go online. Adaptive Routing Technology (ART) keeps your network running optimally. It automatically optimizes the band and path for each device. Options and reporting are very flexible. It's possible to adjust priority of devices and activities. Internet speed and usage can be monitored, by user and device. You can get monthly reports on usage and content, blocked content, and security threats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly a Thing of Beauty This technology is amazing and the Deco embraces it beautifully. Out the box it was very easy to setup and integrate into my existing network. I have a 5000 sf house and it feels like the entire property has just been draped in wi-fi. No dead spots and consistently high speeds from the furthest reached of the home. Everything from setup to control us managed by the Deco App and it truly makes things very simple. The Deco units seamlessly switch as you move around the home providing a consistently strong signal everywhere. The features and benefits are numerous but here are a few of my favorites: * Built in Anti-Virus that is located off site that protects the network from attacks. * Easy to set limits to help parents control kids access * Integrated USB and Ethernet Ports for more flexibility * Stylish and unobtrusive * Works great with Alexa (Amazon Echo) and IFTTT * Has IP Address Reservation, Port Forwarding and TP-Link DDNS.for advanced users. This is a very exciting and well thought out product. It will enhance your network. It will enhance your LIFE !!! Submitted as part of a free sample program.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK for Whole Home, but not for power users The Deco offers a good whole home entry point for those who are part of the 'mobile app generation". The entire system is configured and deployed through the user friendly mobile application available for both iPhone and Android device. The system offers acceptable throughput over a significant coverage area with the base package of 3 units. Additional units can also be added (up to 10 per the documentation), but it would be interesting to see if the additional extenders would reduce the overall throughput to the base. Device setup was quick and painless once the mobile application was installed. The base unit was capable of detecting my Internet speed up to 450Mbs+ My devices performed well while connected through both the base unit and the 'extenders', although throughput was less than when connected to the base unit. CONS: I am not fond of having to create a TP-Link ID just to setup my home wireless devices. I get that the world seems to think that everything needs to be interconnected, but I would prefer to have the option to setup my stuff and not create yet another account on some company's servers. I do not like that the app is the only way to manage these devices. No local web application, even after they are setup and running. I just feel that is a gross oversight in design. I also do not like that if you do not grant the app access to your photos and data storage, you can not move forward with the unit setup. It would also be nice if the units were capable of using POE or POE+ for power opposed to having to use the power adapter. This product could be a good whole home unit for those who want simple setup and maintenance, built in anti-virus and malware as well as Parental controls that can restrict content and access times. One final word. I am selecting that I would recommend to a friend, if I knew that they needed something with a wide coverage area but was not a "power user".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Whole Home System This whole home WiFi system by TP-LINK is amazing. It is super easy to setup and with the Deco App it makes it an even better experience. The app will guide you as to where the best place to put units so you get the best coverage. The speed is also amazing with the devices and I have not noticed any performance hit or dead zones at my house. Submitted as part of a free sample program.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product getting better Bought this a few months ago after doing research on other mesh devices. It was a toss-up between cost and performance and I met in the middle with this. For the most part I am happy with the product. I have found a few times where I have had to manually power cycle one of the devices to reboot it because it had lost its connection. Other than that they have performed well. TP-Link has been releasing firmware updates frequently that either fix bug or introduce new features so they aren't just releasing the product and forgetting about it. I like that each device has two ethernet ports so that you can hard wire devices to them if you need to. The Parental Controls are also nice if you want to set time limits for your children. It would also be nice if they would have some sort of computer browser management instead of just the phone app. All in all I am happy. They just need to work out the buggy disconnects of the devices and I will be completely satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neat/fast little devices This is a review of a free product received from TP-Link as part of the review program. The Deco M5 what is this? Are they smoke detectors? Hockey pucks? No, what they are is basically a home router with range extenders built in. This is done to cover you home the best it can and eliminate dead spots. I would like to call out something right away if you like to customize your network the Deco isn't for you. However, if you want to quickly and simply cover your home in an umbrella of Wi-Fi goodness this is for you. Each device is packed with some cool features I especially like the parental controls which allow me to select devices to place controls on. You can also set time limits and even set bedtimes which is cool. There is also an antivirus feature which can stop some malicious sites and pick off viruses before they are downloaded. However, this is not a replacement for AV on your computer but it's a nice extra layer for the hostile internet. The setup of each device is pretty painless, plug it in, wait, hit connect on the app and pick your settings, on the remainder of the devices you just basically hit next a few times and move on. The nice part about the app is no matter where you are you can check on your network. You also get notifications when a new device joins your network. There is also the ability to have a guest network isolated from your home network. This is great alternative to giving friends or relatives your Wi-Fi password or saying "no" like I do which always causes someone to whine. The app also allows you to share your Wi-Fi password via anything your phone will share which is neat. I will never have to repeat my guest password again as they never get it right the first time. As far as speed goes they are pretty speedy, I have seen faster and I have seen much much slower devices. I would put the speed at the high middle level. The bad is the lack of advanced options like DHCP settings and more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of Junk - DO NOT BUY One of the worst purchases I have ever made. Filled with bugs, unreliable when it comes to connectivity between the different DECO's. Backhaul does not work and there is no clear explanation as to how to get it to work. Android App constantly crashes.
