TP-Link Deco M5 Whole Home WiFi System Review

Performance Testing
Performance testing is a little bit different with Deco. Deco uses a smart system to determine 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands on your device, so we cannot test 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz connections separately. We will be testing the Deco system against three different routers we have on hand, which include the Synology RT2600ac, Synology RT1900ac, and the Linksys WRT3200ACM. We will be testing throughput speeds in three different locations which include my office, bedroom, and kitchen.

As you can see the Deco is not the fastest at location one or two, but overall it provides better coverage throughout my entire apartment, especially in my kitchen which is basically a dead zone typical router coverage.
