Summary: If you are looking for speed, non of these powerline adapters are the answer. Find a high quality wireless adapter or better yet, run some wire.
Pros: It does work if you are on the same circuit but don't expect speeds anywhere near 600 Mbps.
Cons: I hooked this thing up in the same room only one plug over, (That's 6 feet) and the best I could get is 78 Mbps. When hooked in the next room over on a different circuit, the max speed dropped to 4 Mbps. This product is unusable. I don't think this problem is isolated to ZyXEL. I tested the TP-Li...
I'm Happy if These Work for You - All I got was Worked!

Summary: Three hours of trying to setup is my limit. Bought these to replace a first gen Powerline adapter setup that I've used for years as an early adopter of the tech. I bought two kits for a total of four adapters to use on three outlets with one extra in case I wanted to get a signal in another room...
Summary: Maybe the connection is not poor, but when I attempt to copy the files from one end to the other, I get less then optimal speeds. Sometimes I can't even break 1 MBit. If you have a wireless option, I would recommend it over the powerline solution.
Summary: I already had a set of panasonic home network units. Worked great. Reliable, but they were about 4-5 years old. So max speed was 100Mbps. I wanted to upgrade to faster line speed. These were rated the best.
Summary: Given that the performance on existing Homeplug AV 500 adapters can be better than these Zyxel adapters and that the prices on older adapters can be much lower, you should consider skipping these adapters and going with something else.
Pros: Compact compared to other powerline networking adapters. Works with Homeplug AV 500 adapters from Belkin (the Powerline AV500). Easy to install.
Cons: I ordered these expecting Homeplug AV2 adapters to provide an improvement in performance over others I've been using. I've used Belkin Powerline AV500's and have been satisfied with them in the past. I replaced them with these Zyxel PLA5205's and found that Zyxel's own utility software reports th...
Summary: Presterar sämre än mina två år gamla Netgearpluggar. Får ut ca 20 Mb/s i två olika ändar av huset (olika fas också). Det är ju dock den maximala kapaciteten, dvs ifall jag ska ha både till och från samtidigt så blir det ju då 10 Mb/s i vardera riktning. Sedan så är det flera designmissar också.
