Barely any difference from the old generation Velop... Not worth the upgrade
I upgraded from the tri-band AC velop to the Wifi 6 velop and the results are disappointing. After installation I separated the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands and set the security setting to WPA2 and WPA3 respectively. I have a 1Gbps connection to my home and the speeds I was getting on my iPhone 11 was about 30-40 Mbps on the 5Ghz band. I reset the router and tried again but the results were the same. Then I changed the 5GHz band to WPA2 and i noticed a slight increase in speeds. The speed test on my iPhone11 for the old velop at 5GHz would max at around 380Mbps. And for the new one, I was getting speeds upto 430Mbps. On the previous generation Velop 2GHz band, where i had approximately 55 smart devices connected, my speeds were around 30Mbps and on the Wifi 6 Velop, my max wifi speed increased slightly to 70Mbps. Surprisingly, I saw a slight increase in speed for my wired connections. On my iMac 5k, I'm able to get up to 940Mbps, while on the old Velop, I would max out at 830Mbps. I believe this is due to a faster processor. I would not recommend upgrading to this because you will not see speeds exceeding 500Mbps on your iPhone11. In addition, it isn't "future proof" because there isn't a 2.5G or 10G ethernet port. Linksys also needs to fix its WPA3 performance issues.

What a Disappointment
I bought a MX5 back in November 2019 shortly after they first came out and another in March 2020. Prior to that I had a first generation WiFi 5 dual Triband Velop system so getting this new single WiFi 6 MX5 seemed like good way to check this out. Initially this looked like it was going to really be a good product. With close to 50 smart devices in my house I was starting to outgrow the initial WiFi 5 Velop Triband system. I do not have any WiFi 6 devices on my network so I was not sure I would be doing myself any good, but I wanted to find out. I soon found out that having this new WiFi 6 MX5 router actually did speed up my network. In spite of alleged backward compatibility with the first generation Velop, I was not happy with the overall performance so I bought the second MX5 as the second (child) node and retired the legacy Velop system. Now I essentially had a MX10 system operational. I could see a basic improvement in network speed throughout the house. Okay so why a 2-star rating? In short features, reliability/stability, app, and product support. I could write pages about all this but will keep it short and let any readers draw their own conclusions. By most standards I consider myself a pretty advanced user, having gone through many routers, computers, devices, etc. On features this system has enough for me to get by fine with one critical exception. There is no way to back up your router configuration. There are people in forums that have been asking for this since at least 2017 and it is still not there. When I install a Velop system with a lot of devices I take a lot of time and devote a lot of effort to identifying each device and assigning a recognizable name to it. This is no short or easy task. Further I need to do various port forwardings and make a few IP reservations. All of this takes a lot of time. If you just had to do it once it would not be that big a deal. In my case I have had several technical issues with this MX10 system and if you ever do get someone in Tech support that doesn't hang up on you then about all they can do is to get you to do things like master resets, swapping devices (same thing), or other configuration destroying changes. On a recent conversation with tech support they told me there indeed was a way to back up the configuration, but that actually turned out to not be true. So on missing features, my big thing is no no way to back up configuration. It is a basic feature that virtually all other routers have. Reliability/Stability - When everything is working well it's great. Then there is a node that goes offline and tells you it is offline (in the app). Generally unplugging and replugging will fix this. Then there is a node that goes offline but the app says it is online. A whole new problem here. Then while the router continues to report 240 mbps down my actual wifi speed slows to about 40 mbps. No problem, just restart everything and it usually comes back. Okay enough of that, the system is a little flakey and unreliable unless you are willing to keep your eye on it a lot and often do soft and sometime hard restarts. Not acceptable performance to me. The App - At times the app works fairly well. It could a lot more features for sure, but the real problem is that the app too is very flaky and unreliable. It can show things not connected when they are and vice verse. One theory I have (only a theory) is that this app is merely reflecting problems with the router and child node and would work fine in a trouble-free environment. I can only judge by what I can see though, and I pretty much see a crap app. On tech support - Oh this is so bad. The people you will talk to are obviously their tier 1 and that can be okay. Unfortunately in the many times I have tried to get help I have not had any good results and have often gotten clearly wrong information. Further I have heard some references to perhaps having an issue elevated up a to the next level, but I have never been able to talk to anyone at that next (imaginary?) level. Also in those instances the case just died and I never heard from anyone again. Okay folks that's the short version. MESH systems are clearly more complex that single point routers and I understand there are challenges, but these systems need to be stable, reliable, and robust. The Linksys MX10 and its associated app all look very good on paper, but in my opinion they will disappoint, and I would not buy it again or recommend it. One of the problems with all reviews of these systems, is that they focus on speed and range. These are important variables, but a few more feet in range or a few more mbps will quickly become meaningless when a user runs into reliability issues, product support issues, setup quirks, and other issues that will govern how things go day in and day out.

Solid Mesh Router
It was a fairly easy setup setting the MX10 through the Linksys app. Recognizing the child node via Bluetooth didn't work for me, but i got it to join the network and finish the install via the non-Bluetooth method. Despite that, count about 10 minutes for both nodes to be up and running. I upgraded from an EA7500 and I can tell that the signal / range is already much better probably thanks to the 7 internal antennas of the nodes. The speed through my house however is fairly similar to that of the EA7500 (when it worked - i don't think that the EA7500 V1 could handle the sheer volume of devices on my network anymore). The 29 devices seem a little snappier now thanks to this upgrade. I don't own any AX devices (yet), but shall soon and I can't wait to see what the MX10 can do with WiFi 6. The footprint of the nodes is actually refreshing: not bulky at all compared to the EA7500 I owned. The white color is also nice. Overall good design. (A black option would be nice). Cost is high, definitely paying for the novelty of WiFi 6 here, but I couldn't wait to upgrade. I would recommend this product.

Despite strong signal, modem doesn't deliver data
Installed and operated the system for about two weeks now. Setup was easy via the app and started with just the 2 nodes in this package. Performance was uneven, and added 3 more Tri-band Velop nodes to make sure there was plenty of signal throughout the house. Despite very strong signal, data movement is inexplicably poor and even when in line of sight with the nodes I often get a fraction of the connection's speed and even just 15 feet away through a masonry wall I get less than 1mbps on a 250mbps connection. I really wanted this system to work and to like it, but my spouse is FURIOUS with the money I spent on this system and is begging me to bring back the old Apple Extreme router setup we had that never encountered these problems. I also see problems moving between floors, and despite tweaking every imaginable setting I can't get the system to "just work" like the old Apple routers. There is a "report a problem" feature in the app that I have used at least a dozen times, but never heard a word back from anyone at Linksys, makes me wonder where those messages go. This might be a great system in a not very challenging environment, but in a large house of masonry construction I have had unacceptably poor performance. If you don’t mind going to settings and turning your WiFi off and back on each time you move a different room in your house this is the system for you. When I do this I get great performance.

This might be a great system in a not very challenging environment, but in a large house of masonry construction I have had unacceptably poor performance. If you don’t mind going to settings and turning your WiFi off and back on each time you move a different room in your house this is the system for you. When I do this I get great performance.
