Summary: I got this in the hopes of improving our LAN, but unfortunately, the wiring in our place isn't up to the challenge. We used to use the Actiontec units in our old place and they worked well, but in the new place, they all show the orange connection light, meaning the connection is poor.
Summary: Like others, I got 2 PLS400 units instead of one PLE400 and one PLS400, so the picture is wrong. Also came is with 2 short ethernet cables. The "source" unit gets over 80 MB/S, but I only get 10 MB/S out of the other unit. Plug and play, thank god, because no instructions were included.
Summary: Delivery was on time and price is $24.95 not bad. When I bought the 3 pairs and placed the order I thought one main PLE400 and one PLS400 for each pair based on the posted picture. I did not pay attention to the title listed 'AV 4-Port Network Adapter Kit'. So I got 6 PLS400.
Summary: I have a home media server where I stream 1080p movies at > 8000kbps. This really taxes a SOHO wireless network that is already dealing with handling 15 devices on it. I decided to go Powerline as it was a simple method of dealing with the issue. Everything sync'd up great and took off.
Pros: Much better than the WiFi speed I was getting. Now I get high bandwidth streaming to my TV. 4-ports are a big plus since I can connect multiple devices to the receiver instead of having to use an Ethernet switch.
Summary: Bought this device on sale for 49.99 + tax hooked it up not knowing if it would work in my house. Sure enough pushed the sync button on both of them and was online within seconds works wonders with my Dlink Router also.
Summary: I agree with many of the positive comments that other reviewers have posted, but you should be aware that you cannot purchase additional receiver units outside of the kit that contains both the transmitting (PLE400) and the receiving units (PLS400).
Summary: I think its wonderful that no matter where the modem is I can connect to it without using wireless. Although, I get a direct connection I am not receiving the bandwidth that our package offers or that the power line advertises. But overall a good product, would recommend to anybody!
Summary: I spent quite a while fighting with this unit, I thought it wasn't going to work for me and that the wiring in my building was one two circuits. It turns out that these don't work through powerbars (or maybe just surge protectors).
Pros: Very clean, fast speeds, easy to set up once on a viable line.
Cons: Doesn't work through power bars, slides around in outlet.
