Noteworthy devices in the sale include the Netgear Orbi Mesh Router. In our hands-on review, we found it delivered super-fast speeds with very easy set up. In a three-story home with lots of thick walls, the Orbi stayed connected with client devices as far as 125 feet away from the router. That's the best score we've seen among recent routers, beating the Google Wifi and AmpliFi HD routers by 20 feet and 35 feet, respectively.

We also liked the Netgear Nighthawk X6S Router. In our X6S tests, the router was able to deliver 571.2 and 628.7 Mbps at 5 and 15 feet. It hit its peak at an unusual distance of 50 feet, moving 661.5 Mbps.
