So to be honest, basically I'm just flipping a coin and hoping that since the Orbi didn't work for me, maybe the Velop will! I have a 2 story home with very poor connection on the second floor without some kind of mesh/extender setup so I'm hoping I'll get lucky.
If not, I'll return it and try Google Wifi next.
That sounds like a very good strategy - I wish it wasn't too late for me to adopt it. You may also want to look at Asus AIMesh (which is what I would give a go if I could, rather than let Google see any more of my data!).
Of course, it does require a considerable investment of time (and a forgiving family) - not something that should be required for an expensive consumer product.
