Meshing on IAP205: pro's / con's

I'm looking for the pro's / con's using a Mesh construction between 2 IAP205.

 

Can somebody tell me if I loose streams or do I loose a whole antenna? I know a Mesh will be performing less when connecting directly on a cable. I'm looking for a small solution in a house, cabling is an issue right now. So that is why I'm looking into Meshing

As long as there is good RF coverage between both access points you will have decent performance.  The big limiting factor is the resources that you would try to reach.  If your internet bandwidth is 20 megs, and you have good RF coverage between access points, you should not have a performance issue.  What is the bandwidth of the resources that you want to reach?

Bandwidth will indeed be around 20 Mbit. Do I understand correct that I will keep my both radio's so I can connect on both 2.4 Ghz as 5 Ghz?
