Richard Page, Amazon
12 January 2015
  • Summary: This product works most of the time, but occasionally have to reboot one or both to get a connection to my network. Having said all of that, I am still OK with offering a 5 star, because this product has allowed me to use my network in other rooms which would not be possible, otherwise.

Happily Surprised.

Park Place South, Amazon
23 December 2014
  • Summary: I was leery at first about these adapters but was happily surprised. The setup is easy and I get virtually the same through put speed through two of these, one connected to the router and the other connected to my laptop, as I do with the laptop directly connected to the cable modem.

Not unbearable but still kind of annoying.

  • Summary: It works well but seems to drop connection once or twice a day for about a minute each time. Not unbearable but still kind of annoying.

I suspect the frequency used by these devices looks like an arc on the circuit

  • Summary: Returned this item, intermittently would trip my AFCI breakers in my electrical panel. I suspect the frequency used by these devices looks like an arc on the circuit. I have Seimens breakers.. Net search indicates problems with these both with trips and reduction on throughput.

The Powerline adapter needs to plug directly into the wall so this is great.

Claire Beaumon, Amazon
9 November 2014
  • Summary: Working perfectly to bring internet via "ethernet" to my desktop that is in a separate office away from my wireless router. It is on the same electrical circuit. Having the extra outlet is a huge help since I have a modem and router.

Great item but open box sold as new!

Richard Eisenberg "Meathead", Amazon
9 October 2014
  • Summary: I would give this product 4 stars if AMAZON didn't send me an "open box return" on the first try! This is now the 2nd time in 3 technology gear purchases where we have received obvious open boxed return items shipped out as new.

A nice implementation but don't give up of traditional Ethernet cabling just yet

Brian Warren, Amazon
14 September 2014
  • Summary: Important context: Our house is fairly large so the intent of bringing in Powerline was to provide a high-speed and more stable alternative to 802.11n. Unfortunately our house has two electrical home runs -- effectively 2/3 of our house is on one set of runs and the remain 1/3 is on the other (a...

Technology has limitations.

fast and easy to set up

E. Sieben "movie & music guy", Amazon
25 July 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this to extend an internet connection to our entertainment center as the wifi was semi weak in that area of our home. We haven't had any issues with buffering while watching HD movies through Vudu or Amazon Prime ever since! Installation was easy.
