Western Digital Livewire Powerline AV Network Kit
23 October 2010
Conclusion: To test the performance of the WD Livewire Powerline AV network kit, I used Ixia's Qcheck software. Built using IxChariot technology, Qcheck is capable of testing a network's throughput and response time as well as the packet loss of data streamed between two endpoints.
Pros: Very easy to setup, Four Ethernet ports on each adapter, Fast enough for 1080p HD video streaming, Data transfer protected by 128-bit encryption, Works with other HomePlug AV devices, Reasonably priced
Cons: WD Livewire Utility is Windows only, Does not work with power strips or surge protectors, Only a 1 year warranty in North America
