Summary: This worked like a charm. I was a bit worried the wiring in my house was going to be in some way "wrong", but it works great. The one thing I've noticed is that you can't have anything else plugged into the outlets you're using. MOST of the times that the device isn't working, I go check, and someone has plugged in a computer charger or toy.
Summary: From poor wireless in our back bedroom to near-cabled connection speed. Very nice. Unfortunately, the labeling didn't make it clear that this was the 200, not the 500 version of the product. Would have been better if I'd have known I wasn't get top of the line.
Summary: The wi-fi to my home theater was "iffy", and I had more than one item to hook up at that location. This was the perfect item for that use. I have another port elsewhere in the house that gets the full 200 MBps speed. This location is closer to 100, which is still faster than wi-fi.
Summary: I had been using a 802.11n wireless adapter for my Sony Bravia's internet connection and moving it to my Sony Blue-ray when I need to (yes, it was a pain in the rear). Performance with streaming NetFlix and Amazon movies seemed to be okay, an occasional stutter and sometimes NetFlix didn't want to stream HD. Overall I was pretty satisfied and thought that was about the best anyone could expect.
Summary: I don't know how exciting a review can be that is supposed to emulate a cable. The good news is that it works and the 4 port switch on is particularly handy. The tool to configure encryption isn't amazing, but it works for OS X so that is plus that many other ones don't have
Summary: Plugged it up and made connections and it immediately started working with increased download speed over wireless. I would recomend this to anyone needing better internet in areas where wirless just dosent cut it.
Great alternative to wireless or running Ethernet cable

Summary: While this little power line network connection device may not match the speeds of a direct wired connection, it *can* be quite fast! Fast enough for 1080p HDTV to your game consoles, etc. My issue was that I have a Playstation 3 and an Xbox 360 in my bedroom. I'm using the Playstation for Vudu, Netflix and Hulu Plus and I'm using the Xbox 360 as a Window Media Center Extender (for live TV).
NETGEAR Home Theater Internet Connection Kit - as good as advertised

Summary: After several months of having the NETGEAR Home Theater kit on my Amazon Wish List, I finally decided it was time to pull the trigger. Not only does it continually get great reviews, but there seems to be no equal alternative and the price has dropped significantly since this product was released. My situation is not unlike many others.
Summary: I really love this product, but the 4-port adapter in this kit was a dud and the NETGEAR service is poor. I had problems with the 4-port adapter and had to call for support to get it working the day it arrived; the tech I talked to was hard to understand but helpful. He had me reset, unplug, and move the adapter to various outlets, and finally it started to work; it should have worked immediately, and I should have realized there was a problem with it, but this was my...
