Eero vs Velop - Please advise
New eero owner here and love it so far, just got the 2 router pack without the beacons. However, I also have a 3 pack velop Tri-band with a couple weeks left to return. I don’t want this to be a vs thread but I couldn’t really find any real world comparisons of the two units, unbiased, detailed ones. Some people are like, the velop is garbage, but don’t really say why. Others are the Eeros are too expensive, etc.
my go to router was the AMPLIFI HD, rock solid connection and range, but with nearly 50 devices, I’m thinking the dual band AMPLIFI is starting to take a hit. So,..... I purchased the velop, tried it out and not too bad, but their app is terrible, crashes, slow, etc. Also purchased the eero, which I’m on it’s connection now. I also tried the Orbi,and with random, constant WiFi disconnects, it was just too unreliable so I returned it.
It also comes down to price. I was able to get the 3 pack velop for $300, Black Friday sale. The two pack eero was 350. So considering, cost, reliability, WiFi speed and range and any other factors the eero community might add, which would choose and why?
