Engadget Review

Google’s updated mesh WiFi gear is great for novice users looking to set up, and forget about their wireless network. The new hardware is better at joining your home together, and it’s simple to use. Power users may find it lacking in features, though, and the absence of ethernet ports on the Point is frustrating.
