Some things you’re right to have qualms about buying used, like underwear or a mattress.
But a home WiFi system shouldn’t be one of them — especially at a price this good.
Today on Amazon, you can save $90 on a Netgear Orbi WiFi system that’s certified refurbished. (That means it’s pre-loved but inspected, cleaned, and certified to look and function good as new.)
The same setup costs upwards of $349.99 when bought brand spanking new, so this deal is saving you quite the pretty penny.
The Orbi system is one of those cool, newfangled mesh (or “whole home”) WiFi networks, which involve multiple nodes spread throughout one’s abode. Without boring you with the nitty-gritty details — you can find those here — mesh networks are really good at eliminating WiFi dead spots and generally offer far stronger connections than traditional router setups.

For its part, Netgear’s Orbi system includes a Wifi router and two satellite modules. Together, these devices are capable of creating a single network big enough to cover large homes up to 6,000 square feet — so no matter where you are in your home, your signal won’t stop or drop.
The Orbi system comes with its own companion app, which can be used to pause the WiFi connection, test its speed, enable parental controls, and more. Additionally, it’s fully compatible with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant; pair it with either virtual assistant and you’ll be able to control your WiFi with voice commands.
