Was in at Snappernet this morning and they had one sitting on the desk. Anyone seen, or using, these things? Sexy little unit. Looks dam cool. Spec'd quite nicely, and has a decent meshing system (assuming its the same as Unifi Mesh). 

 

All set up is done on an app so ultra simple for a consumer to set up.

 

The guys there made the comment they have only just added VLAN tagging to the latest beta so maybe, like all things UBNT, give it a while to mature.

Yeah, there are some cool video reviews onsite. We see them as potentially pretty good in large homes etc.

Are these fully mesh? Eg no Ethernet over power functionality?

I am interested in these as well. Have looked at them a few times. I have a location in mind that could well be well served by these.

A negative times a negative equals a positive so all is good.......... I think.

It just looks like a standard radio with mesh capabilities "hidden" behind a lot of marketing spin:

 

"For best performance, the Mesh Points should be placed in different directions between the Router and the areas farthest from the Router. Mesh multi-hop should only be used when necessary as performance will degrade with each hop."

 

If you need to run a mesh network then get specialist mesh equipment like the Aruba mesh access points.
