    The latest addition to the Linksys Velop family of Wi-Fi system products is Velop Plug-In.

    The new Velop is a dual-band wireless Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) 2x2 MU-MIMO mesh node that delivers maximum link rates of 867 Mbps in 5 GHz and 400 Mbps in 2.4 GHz.

    The Plug-In has a small profile and is designed to take up only one socket in a standard U.S. duplex outlet, freeing up the other socket for other electrical appliances.

    Plug-In supports all Velop features, including self-healing networking, seamless roaming, modular expansion, app-based management, automatic software updates, Amazon Alexa support, device prioritization, parental controls and guest access for up to 50 guests.

    Velop Plug-In is sold only in a bundle of two Plug-Ins and one tri-band desktop Velop. It's available now on Amazon.com, BestBuy.com and Linksys.com for an MSRP of $399.99.

    $400 seems optimistic when the Netgear RBK33 kit is $300 ($260 after coupon @ Amazon) and that kit includes two tri-band RBW30 satellites with dedicated wireless backhaul with the tri-band RBR40 Orbi Router.

    Don't know why they don't have a standalone SKU for it either.

    Be nice if devices like this used power-line. If one's going to hog an outlet, get some mileage out of it.
