Meshforce M3s vs Amazon Eero Wifi System

Meshforce is one of new comer startups that produce whole home mesh wifi products in electronic market. Will Meshforce be able to compete with Eero which is claimed to be the pioneer in the mesh wifi system products that has now been acquired by Amazon?

Meshforce

The first product is Meshforce M1 and then followed by Meshforce M3 and the last series in early 2021 is Meshforce M7, where these three product series are increasingly becoming popular with affordable prices and good product performance.

Meshforce M1 and M3

Meshforce’s first product was the M1 which was then followed by M3. The main difference between Meshforce M1 and M3 lies in the Ethernet port where M1 is only equipped with two fast Ethernet (10/100Mbps) 1x WAN and 1x LAN ports. While on M3 there is an enhancement of the Ethernet port from 10 / 100Mbps to Gigabit Ethernet port, although it does not change the number of ports remain two.

On Meshforce M1, you can only connect maximum of up to 100Mbps to the cable modem, so it’s only stuck on low internet services up to 100Mbps downstream. On an M3 with a Gigabit WAN port, you can use internet services up to 1Gbps by using a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem for example Surfboard Sbg6190, even you can also connect to Surfboard S33 DCOSIS 3.1 cable modem that supports up to 2.5Gbps internet services.

AC1200

Meshforce debut is a mesh wifi product with simultaneous dual band ac1200 network segment (867Mbps + 300Mbps), the standard network segment at the lowest level of mesh wifi products using wifi 5th generation technology.

This first debut is almost the same as most similar products that work on the ac1200 network segment such as TP-link Deco M5 and Amazon Eero. Amazon eero does not specify which network segment eero works, although it is generally believed that eero works on ac1200.

Meshforce M7

At the early of 2021 Meshforce released a new series of Meshforce M7. Unlike the previous series M1 and M3 which are simultaneous dual band mesh wifi, M is a simultaneous three band mesh wifi system and works on the ac2100 network segment.

Unlike the m1 and m3 series which are only equipped with two Ethernet ports; the M7 is equipped with three Ethernet ports, one Gigabit Ethernet WAN port and two Gigabit LAN ports.

Meshforce vs eero

Before Eero was acquired by Amazon, the first generation of Eero was tagged very expensive which is indeed a pioneer product of mesh wifi system. Although now under Amazon, the price of Eero is classified as standard; it is not too expensive compared to other products in the same class. It is natural that many people compare Eero with Meshforce products which are classified as more economical products.

There are two models of Eero, namely Eero 6 ax1800 Standard and Eero Pro ax4200, and then the latest series from Eero are based on WiFi-6, Eero 6 and Eero 6 Pro. Until now, Meshforce has not released a wifi-6 based product.

Like the eero which comes with two models of eero kit with two eero beacons as the extender and three eero router kit, Meshforce also offers two versions of the kit, meshforce m3s kit (3 unit meshforce m3) and m3 plus two m3 dot as an extender.

M3s vs Amazon Eero

To make a fair comparison, we will compare Meshforce m3s (three units m3) with Amazon eero (three units eero router).

One thing that attracts customers about this new Amazon eero is the price that is far more economical than the original eero. Amazon redesigned the eero product into an Amazon eero with a more beautiful design, although it is a bit physically fat compared with the original one but the price could compete with products in the AC1200 class that had flooded the market at affordable prices such as the Meshforce M3 and Deco.

You can read customer testimonials who have already tried and used eero, Amazon eero or Meshforce m3, each of them gets a very good customer rated, but technically if there are differences can be seen from the spec comparison table below.

Same Features?

Look carefully at the comparison table of these two products and you will find that almost these two products have the same spec and the price is almost the same. Amazon eero with a much cheaper price than the original eero and eero Pro is a product that is expected to be able to beat similar products with the same price, considering that the performance of original eero has been tested to be very stable and good and now is redesigned under Amazon umbrella.

Processor

One more thing, Eero is embedded with a quad core processor with a capacity of 4GB of flash memory that is large enough to enable complex data programming and 512MB RAM for data processing. Remember your laptop with a large RAM memory will respond faster in gaming. The bigger the capacity of RAM memory the faster the processing response will be. Meshforce doesn’t specify the embedded processor and memory. Click the link below to SHOP the product in Amazon (#ads)
