Looks interesting and good to see more providers trying to solve the problem of full wifi coverage in the home.  A bit pricey though, as I can pick up a couple of Unifi APs for the equivalent price.

One would be better off buying a cheap router (if one does not have an old one knockiing about) and converting into an extender...there is a lot of guidance on the weeb about this and I haver a couple of friends who have done this with very good results...and for a whole lot less money. ;)
