# TP-Link Launches Affordable Wi-Fi 6 Mesh Router: The Deco X55 Pro
TP-Link has recently released an affordable Wi-Fi 6 router that may make you reconsider upgrading to Wi-Fi 6E or Wi-Fi 7. Called the Deco X55 Pro, this whole-home Wi-Fi 6 mesh router system is available in a three-pack on Amazon and the TP-Link webstore. Currently, there is a special discount price of $239.99 if you use the promo code 20DECOX55PRO. After July 31st, the router will go back to its standard price of $299.99.
## Powerful and Convenient Features
The Deco X55 Pro mesh router comes with two 2.5 gigabit ethernet ports for each node in the three-pack. TP-Link claims that the router’s Wi-Fi 6 capabilities can provide wireless speeds of up to 3Gbps. Additionally, it features an “AI-driven” mesh system that automatically switches between network sources for a better connection.
## Extensive Coverage and Device Support
Covering up to 6,500 square feet, TP-Link claims that the Deco X55 Pro can eliminate weak signals and dead zones in your home. This makes it ideal for areas where other systems may struggle to provide a strong connection, such as bathrooms, garages, and basements. Furthermore, the router can support over 150 devices, surpassing the device limit of more expensive Wi-Fi systems like the Eero Pro 6E.
## Dual-Band System at a Competitive Price
The Deco X55 Pro is a dual-band Wi-Fi system, supporting the usual single 5GHz and 2.4GHz bands. While tri-band systems with a similar price point are hard to find, the Eero Pro 6 offers an additional 5GHz band, although it comes at a higher cost of $399.
If you are interested in exploring Wi-Fi 6E, TP-Link also offers the Deco XE75 tri-band system, priced at $299 for a two-pack of base stations. However, it is important to note that the Deco XE75 has a smaller range compared to the Deco X55 Pro triple-pack, and the availability of 6GHz-compatible devices is still limited.
