Wi-Fi that just works
With a large house and thick internal walls, the only way we were going to get proper WiFi coverage within our home was with a mesh router. After toying with the idea of deploying a 3xNest WiFi setup, a friend suggested I look at Ubiquiti's range and I eventually settled on buying a 3xAmpliFi router setup (about AU$660 in total). We needed at least one Ethernet port at one of the mesh point sites which was a factor in going down this route.
Setup is a breeze with the phone app, and there is just the right amount of configurable network setting...s to please a tech-head but not overwhelm someone who has never configured a router before. Sure, it's missing a few advanced features like MAC address filtering, but the typical home user has no real need of these. The WiFi connection is solid and strong, and I was able to locate one of the mesh points further than my previous setup with an obsolete (802.11N) router and range extender while retaining a "good" signal connection to the base router. The LED light and screen can be controlled for each device (and switched off on a schedule), and overall the router is unobtrusively small so it looks good no matter where it's located. Exceptionally happy with this router; reliable and it just works.

The horrible customer service experience
My house mate told me to buy this company product due to we have bad wifi connection.
But he accidentally told me to purchase a wrong product as $110 something for “3 pieces wall mount “.
When it arrived, i discovery it was just 3 pieces of Wallmount metal, no wifi connection products inside, it was kinda missing and confusing with the purchase. I paid another $20 for the delivery.
So I contact the company back, they refused to do the refund with the accounts and faniance team directly, they asked me lodge on line with the disbultion cent...re to get a RM number to get a direction to get refund and post things back, but nobody get back to me regarding the refund and return even I will still need pay another $20 for return postage fees and being charged 20% restocking fees ($another $22). No customer service at all, they just want the money, they have no care for customers at all.

Does the basics, and not much else
The router will connect you to the internet and allows for quick additions, and the range is fine for a small home. The clock face also automatically updates for daylight savings which is nice, and it looks good. However, the software is extremely limited, and having to use an app rather than being able to reach the management software on the computer is frustrating. Good for non-tech savvy people, for anyone who's looking for something that they can have any control over I'd recommend going with another brand.
Great router, very happy
I decided to try this router to try to improve the wifi dead spots in my double brick townhouse. It was very easy to set up and looks attractive. I now have wifi upstairs and in the garage and I don’t think I will need to buy additional points at this stage.
Very happy with the purchase.

Packed with great features
Small little white cube unit and very easy to set up. The manual is easy to follow but you will not need to use it as everything can be set up using the App. One of the best App to use; everything can be control with it. Good price from Pentanet and the router delivered and look great.

A must have for all homes.
I researched a lot of routers/modems to carefully choose the right one for my house.
This router is amazing. The app is extremely easy to use with the ability to control all the wireless connections from your phone while away from home.
Easy to set up 5 minutes TOPS!
2.4/5ghZ wifi connections and 4 Ethernet Ports is perfect for a house.
Zero regrets in this purchase.

Blessing in Disguise - Super Easy & Super Quick & SUPERB PERFORMANCE
Bought this item through Custom Home Theatre Solutions via online. Did check loads of reviews about various other routers but this Ubiquiti Amplifi was also one of them, since I wasnt familiar with this name, did more research and was inclined towards giving it a try.
Well the product lived up to and beyond my expectations !! Very Very easy to set up & Very Very fast to hook up and create all those fancy things that poeple these days do with the router like dual band / Guest Network / Parental Control,, WOW doing all these things was so much fun and seamless .
I have to mention, this looks stunning No matter where you keep this thing it grabs all the attention and my friends and family who visit me go Awww about how cute this looks !

Fantastic coverage throughout the house
Have one AmpliFi router and 5 mesh points around a two storey house and have complete WiFi coverage inside and outside. The setup was really straight forward - just plug and play and you're good to go. Have had other mesh solutions in the past (Netgear) and it's never worked as well as this. Would highly recommend.

Great looking router
Doesn't look like another ugly router you want to hide behind the shelf. Very stylish and nice looking device. Easy set up and excellent wireless coverage. The smartphone app is very useful with plenty of features. Technical supports is quite good. Would highly recommend this router. I have been using it for last two months, no issues or wifi drop offs.
Very impressed. Hard to fault
Spent a lot of time looking at reliable, sturdy & feature packed modems. Needed something with good wireless coverage, lots of features, can handle loads of devices and above all, looks good in the home! This thing does it all. Awesome app features, set-up was relatively easy (some older devices needing 2.4Ghz needed tweaking in the app) and incredible wireless coverage in and even outside the home. Highly recommended
P.S. At the time of writing this review, I have been advised of a recall of this item. Specifically the mesh point extenders ...which have been identified as potentially at risk of falling apart at the powerpoint and thus, exposing the internal electrical contacts inside. Note the modem itself is not affected and not named in the recall, only the mesh extenders. I was contacted by the retailer where I bought the bundle to power off & disconnect the mesh extenders and return them for a new pair over the counter. Now waiting on the retailer to advise as to when replacements will be in stock More info here: https://www.productsafety.gov.au/recall/leader-systems-pty-ltd-amplifi-afi-hd-au-and-afi-p-hd-au-wireless-mesh-points
Ubiquiti Amplifi HD nice stylish wifi router
Set up very easy with smartphone app. Serious networkers will be disappointed with the lack of options to change but port forwarding and dchp server settings are accessible. Wi-fi coverage good even without mesh points attached. Easy to monitor via app and guest wifi system works well and easily.Looks good as well.
Super Simple, fast, reliable Wi-Fi
I purchased this to replace my Optus Huawei E5186 router and TP-Link RE350 range extender, which were providing spotty coverage and mixed/terrible throughput speed (<70Mbps) making it difficult to stream HD video from PLEX and TV from my HDHomeRun, especially in the upstairs bedrooms of my 2-story (~170 m2) 4 bedroom house. I initially got just the main HD Mesh Router, which was incredibly easy to set up (a couple of minutes) and gave significantly better coverage than the Huawei router. It's surprisingly small and looks nice enough that you ca...n leave it out on display. Most importantly, I could now get access upstairs, however, the signal was still a bit weak (1-2 bars) and throughput (<100Mbps) was not much better than with the TP-link extender, although streaming was now working well. I picked up 1 additional mesh-point on special, which I simply plugged in an upstairs wall socket and with a few clicks on the iPhone app, it was connected and my speeds were now a very respectable 700+ Mbps. The Amplifi HD completely fixed all my internal streaming and file transfer issues and with the benefits of a single SSID and whole home mesh wi-fi. I couldn't be happier!
Simple and reliable Wi-Fi
I purchased this Wi-Fi router to resolve some airplay and Wi-Fi coverage issues I've had at home. I am very impressed at the performance. It was also very quick to setup, however if you are into adjusting advanced settings, you will be disappointed. That said, the basic NAT/PAT advanced setups was available, and the WiFi performance solid and reliable. I am no longer having Bonjour issues and can happily AirPrint from my phone. Not as configurable as their corporate products, though seems to have the same good Wi-Fi chipset/antenna's inside. This is NBN suitable with a Gigabit ethernet WAN port.
