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.

Works

Ennoble, Amazon

  • 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: So far so good. Occasionally will need to reset the device (just unplug from both outlets for a minute)... but, very nice to be able to make a wired connection away from my switch without having to run tons of cable.

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.

NETGEAR Home Theater Internet Connection Kit Rocks!

B. Wells, Amazon
19 August 2011
  • Summary: This device worked exactly as advertised. It was very easy to configure and use and took about 5 minutes to hook up. My goal was to enable my Sony DVD player to stream video from NetFlix and Youtube.

Gets the Job Done Very Easily

SGTGWJ, Amazon
12 March 2011
  • Summary: I did not want another wireless product in my home. I thought about running a long wire from where my router is to the TV area but that would have included making some holes and minor construction. An IT guy at worked suggested this because he uses the same product.

It worked and secured!

  • Summary: If you live in a house (not condo or apartment) and your living room or entertainment room is rather far from your home office which houses your router, this device is great since it will work with anywhere in the house with outlet.

David M. Andrews, Amazon

  • Summary: This product works just as described. It is easy to setup, (plug and play) and I had it working in less than 5 minutes. Works great, its as fast or faster than my wireless and you dont know its there after it is up and running.

Great product, but a little overpriced

N. Johansen, Amazon
18 January 2010
  • Summary: The Netgear XAVB1004 Home Theater connection kit is a Homeplug device that allows you to access your home network through your power line. Simply plug the gray brick into the wall, attach your modem or router to it, plug the switch into another power outlet and you have an internet connection at...

NetFlix, Pandora at Last

Brittany Dog, Amazon
18 January 2010
  • Summary: It wasn't as simple as I had hoped. The easiest plugs to use gave me 31 MBPS, which was much less than I had hoped. Using an extension cord, I checked all the plugs in the Home Theater, and the best was 41 MBPS, but that was on the other side of the room from my gear.
