Orbi AX6000 pre-order - Did you??

Has anyone else besides me pre-ordered the WiFi 6.0 Orbi AX6000 system?
I’ve been waiting for it for so long that I decided to go for it. Yet, I am wondering if this was unwise or premature. I cannot find much discussion about it. Have others, like me, pre-ordered the new system??

Read my lips, "no way in hell."  Thank goodness for early adopters who will discover "what works... and what doesn't".

Seriously, I have absolutely zero devices that are WiFi6 certified.  Spending $700 gains me nothing.

When your package shows up in November, please post how things are working out.

I love my Orbi.

The new iPhones are 802.11ax. So there’s that..
Yet, will this new system handle more devices even if not all are 802.11ax compliant?

Before I pre-order the AX6000, I need to know whether additional satillites will be available and what will be their price.  No one seems to know Smiley Happy  Also, the pic shows a black back but the description says "White".  Does the description reflect the front and is the back always black?

You'll have to wait for launch day to see what is availalbe and supported. For now it only seems that NG is just coming out with just the RBR and RBS only in the box on launch day. 

 

What you see in the pictures is what you'll get in the box. 

 

After launch day, make contact with NG and get the info you need.
