Great alternative to stringing Ethernet wire to our family room!

Griff450, Amazon
25 April 2014
  • Summary: Have been putting off for years a project to hard-wire Ethernet access to our family room smart TV, DVR’s, etc. With the greater throughput vs. Wifi, I was most pleased with this solution. Did have to find the best transmission fit with the source outlet for this signal but once I resolved that issue, this system has been perfect!

Not much better than the 200 units

Bruce Murray On Travel "Murray On Travel", Amazon
25 March 2014
  • Summary: I have several 200 units. Some would work with this 500 unit others will not. Can't figure it out. Can't really see any speed increase with this 500 setup. A bit disappointed. It works, but not much faster.

It's OK while connected.

Edward Rho, Amazon
3 March 2014
  • Summary: I have had this unit for three weeks. It works well when it's connected. The problem is that I have to recycle the power quite often, even though all the three LEDs are lit solid, it just won't connect.

Worthwile upgrade

  • Summary: I got the 200 mbps adapter kit last year and wanted to upgrade to the 500 mbps this year. I replaced the old equipment with the new 500 mbps and it works great. Our LAN speed is improved and stable.

Simple, elegant and effective.

AllenPar, Amazon

  • Summary: These powerline systems have improved a great deal over the years. The powerline wireless untis that I first encountered, years ago, were very difficult to set up. Now they are virtually plug-N-Play. This four port "switch" component worked perfectly with my already existing NetGear powerline devices.

Would recomend this over wireless for streaming video.

Joseph D Niffen, Amazon
9 December 2013
  • Summary: I have two systems and use the one base and two hubs. I use this to connect my DVR to the internet and to view DVR recordings from other rooms. Much better service than wireless and easier to setup and more secure. You may have to power up and down the systems a 2-3 times a year, but that takes about less than 3 minutes, depending their location.

Good for streaming video

nerdslifeforme, Amazon
3 December 2013
  • Summary: Installation and setup was easy. It streams HD video well. I would have given it 5 stars but once and a while I have to unplug both devices and plug them back in to get it to work again.
