Might be useful for anyone changing a TV - I got a Hisense Roku TV to replace a broken Philips "Smart" TV

Philips was awful. Hisense can add channels/sources to home screen for NowTV, Amazon, Netflix, Disney+, Deezer, YouTube & more with no boxes, sticks, dongles or remotes to worry about

eero would be a bit better, but, unless you want to tinker stay with what you have is coverage is good.

the next option for an upgrade would be something like ubiquity nano hd

but, that gets into "procumer" level stuff

Deco is excellent very simple setup. Plug and play following the Deco app. Very customisable also. I use three of them in a farm house with 2 feet walls in places and has given me really good coverage throughout the house.
Couldn't recommend more. Particularly if you get the 3 pack for £99.

I’m hoping the Kindle goes on sale.
In the market for a new one and already bought the official case for it a few weeks ago(even though I don’t have a kindle to put into it! Older ones don’t fit it).

Does this Ubiquiti create a Mesh?

I'm eyeing the Synology combo RT2600ac/MR2200ac and the Netgear Orbi RBK50, and counting on Camelcamelcamel

Yes but iirc it creates it on a 5GHz channel only. So throughout over distance won't be great, probably.

Probably zero discount on Prime Day.
During Black Friday last year, there was a small discount on Nintendo Switch Bundles (console + game), but I don't remember there being any discount on the console if bought alone.

yea the ubiquiti stuff meshes, but, the mesh is a replacment to your current routers wifi, not in adition to it.

so for my purpouses, i have 3 nano hds, one wired connection which the other 2 mesh to, with the isp routers wifi turned off.

they were all wired, but two were only on cat5 so speeds were limited, its faster for me on mesh.

if your intrested in it, check out :

it can be a bit ... dry...

to be clear , if you dont want to tinker, dont get the ubiquity stuff

Hopefully they discount the annual prime membership again this year for prime day. Can anyone recall how much it was last year?
