Linksys bid its time before jumping into the consumer mesh Wi-Fi router market, watching Eero, Luma, Netgear, and Google wade in with new products in 2016. Now Linksys is making a splash at CES, where it debuted its Velop Whole Home Wi-Fi system. We’ve benchmarked the heck out of a three-node system and found it to be one of the best yet. It’s also one of the most expensive, with a single router priced at $200, a two-pack at $350, and a three-pack going for $400 (a substantial discount over buying three singles).
You’ll find benchmarks conducted with a MacBook Pro further down, but I performed the same tests with an HP Envy x360. (Click here if you’d prefer to read that version.)
