A great item that dramatically increases my music playing ability

Summary: This is a great little gadget that does a great job of extending my ability to playing music on my various devices. In particular, I am able to play far more music on things like my Kindle Fire and Samsung Galaxy S4. The past few years has seen an explosion of gadgets of one sort or another. Many of the ones I have I don't make much use of, but his one has already become of of my more widely used items. Definitely a recommended itm.
Summary: These two units solved a problem. I love having my AppleTV hooked up to the living room home theater, not just for movies but for listening to my iTunes library or zapping something from an iPhone to the TV. But once you get used to that, you want your music in other places. And some of those places don't have wifi, and you don't have ipad docks or whatever. These two (sorta bulky) units do the job. It worked! And for this particular problem they may be the best fix.
Does exactly what it promises--with simple set-up.

Summary: The NETGEAR Powerline Music Extender promises to turn any outlet into an Internet connection, allowing you to wirelessly stream music from your smartphone, tablet or PC to any speaker/stereo system in your home or office, whether or not the unit itself is bluetooth enabled, such as an older Hi-Fi system. And it makes good on that promise.
Simple, effective, and you won't know what you did before you had it

Summary: This gizmo is pretty nifty. You can easily share sound throughout your house, using a variety of interfaces. Plug both into A/C outlets, without a surge protector (it communicates with little fluctuations in current), plug into your computer (and use the app) or media device, and hit play. Sound quality is excellent, as you should expect as it's digitized. It blows my FM transmitter out of the water. It just works, no hassles or reliability issues despite a ton of use.
Summary: I ordered this product hoping it would allow me to play my music on more devices using wireless technology and this product. I was blown away by the performance and ease of use. This product is so easy to use and set up. Literally, it takes less then a minute (not counting the time reading directions). After installation - viola! - you can now stream music to older devices that are not set up to be wireless.
Summary: Netgear's Powerline Music Extender is a great versatile product that really only has one limitation - it works so well it just needs more! More USB ports that is. By limiting the product to just one USB port the user has to choose between music, a network hard drive, or a network printer. With an additional USB port the choice would not be so hard, there could be music plus an additional device, with three ports, all bases are covered.
It works! Make your old stereo system wireless, play Ipod or Android through your wired speaker system.

Summary: It works and it works well without a lot of fiddling. I was playing music through my receiver (to my regular wired speakers) in about 15 minutes from my Ipod. The hardest part was finding an outlet where I could plug it in directly. It does have a pass through outlet ( and they even suggest you can plug your extension cord into it because you are not supposed to plug it into an extension cord). It is a three pronged plug.
Summary: I've used a number of powerline Ethernet technologies (AKA "Ethernet over Power") and found this to be a good one. I was able to plug in both ends of this Netgear setup to my home power system and within minutes I had Ethernet working. I didn't have to do anything special, I just plugged it in and it worked. I was most interested in this product for the USB extender feature.
Summary: Other devices that I have tried for the same purposes have been a disaster thus far so when Vine sent me this I thought 'well...plug it in...watch it fail...then give one star review'. Imagine my surprise that this pair of technological marvels really work!! You may have to install some usb software (available on their website)and/or the included powerline music extender software (included on a cd) to use with your pc but that's all I had to do.
