I have been using this router for about two weeks now. I bought it to replace the first generation Linksys mesh router (https://www.linksys.com/us/p/P-WHW0303/) that I used for a few years. So far this router has been very reliable and does not drop signals like the older version mentioned above. I had lots of problems with Airplay with the older version. Additionally, the range is much better. I am using the two nodes to fully cover my 3500 sq ft house without any weak spots. I am using one of the older nodes in my detached garage and it works well with the MX10. I believe the older router just did not have enough power. These nodes are much larger than the pervious generation and weigh three times as much so it would appear that they have more powerful radios. Overall, this new generation is a huge improvement over the previous generation.
Pros: Coverage, range, speed, four ethernet ports
Cons: Expensive somewhat large.

Very impressed, from order to delivery to setup and use. Ordering on Crutchfield is a breeze. No hassles or gimmicks. They delivered promptly, and I was especially happy with the degree of safety in packing they do. My package was very well padded to protect from potential rough handling. And the internal Linksys packaging also well protected the two routers. Setup was straight forward and well explained in their instructions. Having four Ethernet jacks at each device was really nice to have. I put one in my media center to allow connecting devices directly for maximum speed. Once setup, I tested coverage throughout the house and was happy to see solid, strong coverage in every area of my home and yard.
Pros: Extremely fast and stable connection Each node has four Ethernet outputs and super-fast Wi-Fi-6 (ax) wireless speed.
Cons: Power supply is larger than most (4.25x2x1.5").

I would give at least four stars if Linksys Velop supported Apple TimeMachine backup. They don't 'yet', is what I hear from Linksys tech. Yet is a big problem for me. Given a choice, I would choose ASUS Zen WiFi.
Pros: very fast and easy to setup
Cons: Tall nodes that take up large space, no TimeMachine backup
