Great product - with one thiing to remember

Amazon Customer, Amazon
3 October 2013
  • 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.

Nice product

R J Crossno, Amazon
9 July 2013
  • 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.

Better than wi-fi

Jim Elmer, Amazon
22 April 2013
  • 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.

Best Home Theater connection I've ever had ...

FromTheCouch, Amazon
16 February 2013
  • 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.

Works

Ennoble, Amazon
11 January 2013
  • 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

Much better than wireless G

Amazon Customer, Amazon
28 October 2012
  • Summary: I have only had this for a few days, but hookup is a breeze (took about 5 minutes from openning the box to fishing wires under my furniture behind the TV), and it is much faster than wireless G. I am streaming Netflix through my TivoHD without undue buffering, and at the claimed Netflix full HD quality.

Solid speeds works great for streaming video

John A. Sauter "researcher", Amazon
28 October 2012
  • Summary: I chose this unit to hook up my new LG BD-390 Blu-ray player to the Internet. I considered wireless n, but the location of my player was so far from my wireless router that I was concerned I wouldn't get the performance that I wanted for streaming video over the internet. I followed the instructions for setting up the unit. You can encrypt the signal, but since I live in a single family home there was no reason to.

A Wonderful Device by Netgear

Ryan M, Amazon
28 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought this product a couple of days ago because I had a router that I was using as a repeater go out on me. I have a xbox 360 and a PS3 that I play online with and I use the 360 for Netflix streaming. I thought I'd give this a try. I litteraly took 5 minutes to hook up. I plugged it in at the router and the other part at my entertainment unit. They connected immediately. I connected my 360 up and gave a Netflix HD movie a try.

Should have been a 5-star review

Lee, Amazon
28 October 2012
  • 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...
