Internally, everything is packed together very orderly. The router sits on top exposed once you open the box while the satellite and cables sit underneath.

With this being a two-device kit, we have two power adapters and an Ethernet cable adding to the scope of delivery.

The Orbi is quite easily the largest setup as far as "mesh" or Wi-Fi "systems" are concerned. Looking at these devices online, one would think they are small with nothing next to them for comparison. The Orbi is about as tall as a bathroom trash can or two 120mm fans stacked vertically. Netgear has done great with the aesthetic of these devices; the bottom is a soft white plastic while the top is a glossy gray color with a blue led ring.

All of the antennas for Orbi are internal giving a smooth appearance. On the back, you will find a WAN port in yellow and three LAN ports. The router features a USB 2.0 port as well as a sync button to the far left.

The satellite is identical in appearance but has a different I/O panel sticker. This time we have the sync button to the left followed by four LAN ports and a USB 2.0 port.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town, tech wasn't around, unless it was in a tractor. At an early age, Tyler's parents brought home their first PC. Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
