It is probably a fair point, no logs. They have clearly tried to make this device as consumer friendly and just work, which it does. They have added some additional features that are accessibly via a web browser to see connected devices and network topology and where all the devices are connecting into the network and transfers, I use that quite a bit. The Viewport also works, I have used that a couple of times, effectively a VPN back into your network from anywhere that is easy to turn on/configure.

As I am away a lot, wanted something simple for the rental home use. If I was there all the time (i.e. my property), I would probably go down the Ubiquiti UniFi mesh route, although a lot more expensive option. (my UK home is kitted out with Ubiquiti edgerouter, switch and AC WiFi points)

I guess it is what you want from systems, I have had many wifi routers over the years, and I could say the same for them, that log / diagnostic features is poor, unless you go more semi-pro / enterprise level. So, see the Amplifi no different to those, the difference being, it works so much better than typical consumer hardware.

The guest WiFi feature is also great, people coming round/kids wanting access to the network, you can turn on guest mode which segregates off the internet access from home network and you don't have to give them any wifi password. No devices cluttering up and no access to you local hardware.
