Summary: The entertainment devices in my living room all have wireless capability, but none of them can get stable and reliable wireless connection at their location. I needed to hard wired all of them, but my house doesn't have network patches like in the office.
Excerpt: I chose the product for compatibility, since I already use a Linksys E2500 Wireless router. I plugged it and it played. I get internet access in the lower floor in the house, streaming Netflix without a hiccup.
Summary: These network adapters could not be easier to install. It was less than 5 minutes from the time the package was opened until the time my second computer was hooked up and connected to the internet. Simply put, at least for me, it worked exactly as represented.
Summary: Unbelievable and so easy to use too. Tried a wiFi extender to reach my Roku (Across the house from Verizon Fios router) Still not enough to stream any video without constant buffering. Plugged these puppies in and great wired connection.
Efficiency at it's best when Wireless can become a problem.

Summary: I'm a voice and telepresence engineer by trade so I hope that has some credibility to make this review worth reading. For years I have always preferred ethernet cabling versus wireless. At some point I got tired of running cables to every device and went wireless.
Summary: I am no techie, but I hope my layperson's input will be of value to other Amazon customers. I had a LONG network cable snaking through my house, because the wireless approach to my Roku was not successful, and my new "on demand" DVR required a hardwired connection.
Excerpt: Just plug it on the wall, connect the Ethernet cable, done! Contrary to other units, it works when the other plug on the wall is occupied.
Made video streaming like YouTube and Netflix easy as pie!
Summary: I purchased this because I was having increasing problems with WiFi devices in my home theatre setup, in particular devices that only support 2.5Ghz. I can often 'see' as many as 6 other 2.5Ghz networks from neighbors and I have 6-10 WiFi devices in my home connected to the network at any given...
Pros: Quick and easy setup! (2 minutes...including un-boxing!), 4 Ports allow for connection of multiple devices without having to invest in a separate switch. (for same price as other models with a single port), Has provent to be more reliable and faster connection than 802.11N (2.5 and 5Ghz) in same ...
Cons: Not as fast as CAT5., No power pass-through. (other brands offer a power pass-through but not with 4 ports)
