Was 18k something lightning deal
Ah ok. It's back to the old price now.

I had picked up the Netgear Orbi RBK50 during the last sale. Had to return it as the speeds weren't all that great across the house. My current TP-link TL-WR941HP gives better range and speed compared to the Orbi which i found very surprising. All the reviews you see online are for American/European houses which don't use a lot of brick during construction. For comparison, i was getting around 8mbps in my hall with the Orbi compared to 30 mbps with my TP-Link. The total area was less than 2000 sq.ft.

Its got a slow cpu, half the ram and is missing the second 5GHz band. I'd avoid it unless all you care about is coverage.

i am personally very happy with the orbi - as a result have a netgear R7000 for sale in warranty!

Bought this without seeing warranty information :( Amazon customer support say it has one year warranty... Is that right? Flipkart says 5 years warranty.

Should i reject the delivery?

You got a great deal I guess. It's no longer listed
Yes, the moment I bought, item was removed... Looks like it was the last one.

OT... My existing drive is hynix nvme 512 GB one... Is there a cheap way to use that in Dell poweredge t20 server?
