Anyone use standalone RBR850?

I am in process of procuring a standalone RBR850 - someone purchased two RBK852s to get additional satelites.      I understand the limitations of using the router without the satelites.  I was wondering if anyone has any experience, results, issues and reviews of just the router in standalone mode.

Yes. RBR850 works well as stand alone. Depending on the size if you home and building materials. I presume the RBR alone will suffice. Placement will be key. Central and on a main floor for best coverage. If you need an additional RBS, you can get one later on at some point.
