"Works... sometimes..."

davidmaw, CNET

  • Pros: When the units are connected it works resonably well.
  • Cons: Works, some times.. I have 3 devices. Two are very close to the electrical panel. They stay connected. The third unit a floor farther away. It drops off regularly and takes minutes to hours to reconnect. I switched them around. Same result.

"Simple Ethernet using your house electrical wiring."

  • Pros: Simple plug and play setup. Fast connection (faster than wireless), great for streaming video, perfect for getting your TV or Blu-ray player hooked up to the internet.
  • Cons: Haven't come across one yet. It's a bit pricey I suppose, but cheaper and less of a hassle than pulling cable. It's really a good value for what it does and for it's ease of setup.

"Awesome device"

djcovarrubias, CNET
4 June 2009
  • Pros: Bought at the store, plugged it in, and it works. No drivers to download, software to install, just plug and go in the internet. Expanded it with a PLE300 for the computer downstairs, where the wireless signal wouldn't reach. Very satisfied.
  • Cons: The PLK300 is available in store. The PLE300 isn't, had to buy online.

"PLK300 uses your electrical outlets to enable internet"

Bogeyson, CNET
11 February 2009
  • Pros: The PLK300 is different from other powerline adapters because it allows you to connect up to 4 devices and only taking up one electrical outlet. You will not need a computer to setup the adapters.
  • Cons: The price is a little high compared to other products but the benefit of having 4 devices connected to the internet through one device is worth it.
