Nighthawk Ax6000 vs Orbi Ax4200

Hi - I can't get a straight answer anywhere - can someone give a low tech person a hand?

I got both the Orbi ax4200 and Nighthawk ax6000 (one person recommended one and then when I went to pick it up the best buy person told me nighthawk was far superior). What is the difference? Both are wifi 6, both are AX... I seem to be getting 10 percent better speeds with the Orbi which seems counterintuitive.

You trust tech people in a store?

 

As to the the Orbi ax4200 and Nighthawk ax6000, neither is a Netgear model.

 

What is best for you may not be best for someone else.

 

Orbi is designed to be easy to use and to deliver good wifi. When it comes to speeds and stuff, the differences might be impercetible.

 

They just come with different features.

 

A good place to start is with the product pages. Fill in your needs and circumstances, and see what comes up.

 

Routers here:

Fancier stuff with a focus on wifi here:

Compare the features and make up your own mind.
