Packaging is a solid upgrade for TP-Link. The colors are attractive, and the new company logo revitalizes the brand. On the front, we have an image of the mesh units with a slight amount of marketing below.

The spine houses a full specification sheet for the router.

The Deco M5 delivers an experience with each of the devices laid out in a molded compartment.

Below the initial experience, TP-Link has put together a second with all of the power adapters in their own boxes along with the ethernet cable.

Removing the adapter from the box, each unit has a USB-C power adapter.

Each unit has a small footprint compared to other mesh platforms. These are 120mm discs with TP-Link branding on top, and an RGB LED in the center.

On the backside, we have two gigabit ports, either can be your WAN and the other LAN.
