Just want to make sure everyone is clear. This is not the Google Home (Amazon Echo-like) device. This is a system to make wifi work better in your home.

This is google's version of a mesh wi-fi router system. You position the white pucks around your house to get seamless coverage everywhere. I am using a 3-pack in my house and am very happy with it.

List price for the 3-pack on google's store is $299. Amazon currently has the 3-pack for $270.

If you'll forgive a technical diversion here, a question. I was convinced that a mesh network of this type was going to be the salvation for wi-fi in my house. But then I read that if you DO already have wired Ethernet to several points in your house (and I do), that you can do as well if not better by just adding a couple of access points (e.g. an RT-N-12 router that I got for about $20). I did not realize that wi-fi clients would seamlessly hand off to different access points without mesh technology, but it appears that they can.

  Yup.  When plugged into wired ethernet you can add access points to spread wifi coverage throughout your home.  I use a Verizon Fios router as my main router along with an Apple Time capsule and an old Airport Express and have almost no dead zones.  Works great!
