Orbi routers are tiny oval-shaped devices, which can be placed in different corners of the house. However, Netgear has changed the design of these ultra-modern routers. Now, Orbi routers are being manufactured in box-like design, but it’s just the new design, which you will see in Orbi routers, but many new features as well. Let’s delve into the details as to what new Orbi is going to be equipped with.
Orbi Wi-Fi router is a square-shaped device with every side measuring 4.1 inches, and a height of around 2.5 inches. The dimension of this device clearly shows that this isn’t a huge device that will occupy a lot of space, but on the contrary, it can fit into any corner of your room. Where previous Orbi models required special care in terms of placement, the new version can be placed anywhere, as they are more durable.
Similar to TP-link multi-antenna routers, Orbi routers have a flat surface, but antennas are way too delicate. They needed to be kept in a proper secure environment, or else they may break. With the latest ‘not so fragile box’ of Netgear Orbi, you can expect to have a wireless network at your home with a great network coverage area.
According to the specification chart presented by Netgear Orbi, they claim that the device can reach a speed of 400Mbps over 2.4 GHz bands and 866 Mbps over 5GHz bands, which we would say is quite well for a non-complex device like Orbi. Again, as per the Specification sheet a single router combined to the Satellite, it would provide network coverage for around 3000 sq. ft.
Well, to talk about Ethernet ports in the device, then you are going to find two of them. That means, two devices can access wired internet connection at once. If Netgear Orbi suits you, then you can get this product and enjoy fast and seamless internet at home or office. Although if you use Amazon’s Alexa or Google Assistant, then the Orbi Wi-Fi router is compatible with these devices. It will accept the voice command given by you to control your home network.
We have covered all the necessary aspects of the Router but the price of the product, so let’s move on to the price of this new Orbi router. Sometime back, Orbi had launched its Orbi Mesh Wi-Fi 6 router, which costs around $699, which is a big amount but seeing the features the device has in the offing, the price seems justified. However, the new Orbi router is cheaper than its predecessor, as two routers (RBK12) will cost you $149 at Walmart, but if you keep on adding the device, then the price will obviously increase, which means, three routers (RBK13) will cost you around $229. As far as four routers are concerned, then their launch date is yet to be decided.
