Summary: I bought this to have a better connection between the main desktop and the peripherals connected to the router (and the NAS I am about to buy). I didn't need this for faster Internet access since the WiFi I already had was already fast to use all of the bandwidth supplied by the provider.
Pros: It did increase the bandwidth of my network connection (but not dramatically). Seems pretty stable so far.
Cons: Not truly plug and play with Win 8.1. Had to install a component from the included CD-ROM and ran the utility. Takes some time for the units to find each other on the network. When all is configured, connection speed nowhere near the claimed 500 Mbps limit so there is a tiny bit of misleading adv...
Summary: Works as advertised, had no setup problems. Use is very straight forward, just plug them in to outlets and connect Ethernet cables. I plan to get more of these to use as an alternative to wireless.
Summary: Truly plug and play. Tested it between my computer and Mini PC. I'm able to get around 93 Mbps UDP traffic. TCP traffic is a little less than 80 Mbps. Please realize that the 500 Mbps rating is the PLC speed and not UDP/TCP data rate.
Pros: Newegg delivered quickly, as usual. Good Price, if they worked.
Cons: Everything. I bought these because they are supposedly plug & play. My tech knowledge is average, but I'm not a network expert. The lights show good across the board, but the XBox it's connected to cannot access the network (when I go back to the extremely long and unsightly cat5e cable, it works...
Summary: This product claims to support 500Mbps, which everyone should understand is theoretical as none of the Homeplug devices are actually capable of such speeds. However, this is known or should be know by most users. Edimax takes it one step further by including only a 100Mbps ethernet port.
