The Orbi looks nice but then there may be more of these mesh WiFi solutions around at these high prices.
Also depends on what are you trying to cover an American paper house or a reinforced concrete house? You can have the best router but what good is it if it's range is small due to weak wireless/antenna.
Mikrotik I've heard before for sure but not popular for user devices, maybe more business, they sell "routerboard" and it's often as a separate section on shops. No idea what's that supposed to be, looking it up. It seems they use their own RouterOS which used to be or maybe still is a Networking focused distro of Linux, only now they also make devices (small so you don't have to use a big PC) to run this RouterOS. Seems more of a business oriented devices and configurations. In the end in such cases you would often stick to one or two systems, you start using Cisco for some big network it's not a good idea to to mix it with 10 other systems (routers with 10 different OSs on them, different configuration options capabilities, hardware capabilities etc.) XD For home doesn't matter much unless you have a technological mansion.
You will likely also find that business solutions don't always offer the highest wireless speeds, say AC3000 etc.
