how big is your home? 

Many times its better to optimize the placement of a router than it is to add an extender (unless  the home is big enough or home material blocks wifi). Many extenders reduce throughput and increase latency because that have to receive and retransmit data. 

I would state that I'm a fan of the tri-band extenders. They reserve 1 band just for router<---->extender communication. this helps preserver throughput and reduce the latency issue that most extenders have.
