I had a bad experience with it one time at a tradeshow environment.  6 access points setup for public wifi.  The radio levels were quite good in various areas of the tradeshow however traffic would keep dropping out at random intervals as soon as about 300 users were online.  It wasn't my idea to use UBNT but it definitely turned me off of their product after digging into their gear...

Again as someone pointed out, for residential and perhaps SOHO applications it can probably work well - and in my opinion it's priced for that market.

What problems have you had with UBNT? 

It's zero hand-off doesn't work on unsecured networks, but that's about the extent of the issues I've heard of other than stadium density environments.

Dear nanog community 

I was wondering if you can recommend or share your experience with APs that you can use in locations that have 300-500 users. I friend recommended me Ruckus Wireless, it would be great if you can share your experience with Ruckus or with a similar vendor. My experience with ubiquity for this type of requirement was not that good. 

Thank you and have a great day
