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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

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.
