Highly recommend - this works really well and the app on the phone is great
I have a WiFi dead-spot in a separate building outside our house and dreadfully slow internet - which I blamed on Wireless NBN. I replaced my WiFi router with the Deco M5 and placed the stations in two other places around the house and they work wonderfully well. After checking the internet speed I was pleasantly surprised when it was considerably higher - which would indicate that my previous Telstra router wasn't working properly. The Deco M5 is small and easy to connect thanks to the app downloaded to my phone. Highly recommend.

No WiFi Dead spots, Easy Setup and good Parental Control features
I bought the Deco M5 2 months ago and connected it with NBN 100 Mbps and it has solved the wifi dead spots in my house. I got the 3 satellites set and it works quite well with IPTV, PCs, Rind Door Bell and Phones. Haven't had any issue with the device connectivity or dropouts. The setup is very simple using the Phone App and adding any additional satellites is quite easy plus you can use any of the satellite as the master base unit. One of the coolest feature is the Parental Control with heaps of pre-configured options as well as custom setting...s. The Parental control also provides summary of the internet sites and options to setup usage time during weekdays, weekend and bed times. The App can be used to manage the Home Network both via Wifi network as well as directly over the internet in case you'd like to manage the devices remotely. Very happy with the experience. The unit is quite small and good looking. I have used the 3M tapes to mount it on the wall and the look pretty good like a smoke alarm and don't take up any space.
Eliminated WiFi dropouts
Wifi dropouts were the bain of my life.
Even though my computer was telling me I had a strong wifi signal, dropouts were occuring.
I blamed the ISP for these dropouts, but reading an article on the emerging home mesh systems prompted me to trial these devices to eliminate wifi dead spots.
Best thing I could have done to improve my Wifi connectivity.
It was between the TP Link M5 or the Google WiFi.
It was really a flip of a coin, or rather, a special deal at Harvey Norman that determined the final choice. I suspect either would have been fine.
Setup using the app was intuitive and seamless.
An added attraction was the built-in Antivirus.
