'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
We're spotlighting a very special deal on a Google Nest Wifi bundle. Wi-Fi has changed how we relate technology. Not only does it allow us to use our laptops from the couch, it also powers many of our smart home devices -- all without wires. But homes and offices are each designed uniquely and the radio waves that drive Wi-Fi sometimes have difficulty reaching everywhere, creating "dead-zones" throughout your home and office.
Wi-Fi mesh networking fixes that problem. By placing a number of Wi-Fi mesh routers and repeaters throughout your space, you can create a mesh of overlapping networking goodness that provides coverage where previously there was merely frustration.
Google has sold Wi-Fi mesh routers for a number of years now, with the version we're spotlighting here being the second generation. Unlike some mesh systems, the Google Nest mesh setup is easy and accomplished through a wizard that runs in an app on your phone. My experience with the earlier generation of Google Wi-Fi was quite good and this second generation promises to be even better.
Over Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we're spotlighting a great deal where you can get a set of three Google Wifi devices for $199. That's $150 off the regular price of $349. Now, don't be confused. You may have seen sets of Google Nest Wifi devices for less money, but they're older generation devices or refurbished devices. But we haven't ever seen three current-generation Google Nest Wifi devices for this low price, so if you're looking to expand your network, now is the time to snap them up.
