  • Summary: Connected one adapter upstairs connecting into the Xfinity modem. Plugged in the other adapter in the basement. Note: Not on the same circuit as recommended. Adapters linked up without any problems through the electrical panel. I'm averaging 45-50 mbs and 0 drop packets.

Pops CAFCI Siemens Breakers

Jason A., Newegg
1 week ago
  • Summary: Avoid if you have newer breakers or you will be sorry. You might try the newer homeplug V2 with a groundprong. It seems seimens breakers are esp sensative to this issue.. other brands may be ok.
  • Pros: Worked as expected
  • Cons: Would randomly pop my CAFCI breakers (arc fault sensing) It started after a few days so I had no lightbulb moment that a 2watt device would pop my breaker. Ended up buying a new window AC after my old one would pop the breaker randomly in conjunction with the TPlink. While a 1500w heater wouldnt.

Solid units if expectations are not too high

Erik N., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: I was sent this product for review by NewEgg. At it's sub $40 price tag I would recommend it in most situations. Powerline networking is simply not made for pure speeds. They are a simple and reliable alternative to WiFi. I have two rooms in the house where my WiFi coverage is spotty at best.
  • Pros: -Very small footprint. Will not block the second outlet. -Consistent speeds -Reliable connection, even at range -Solid build quality -LEDs for connection information -Two ethernet patch cables are included.
  • Cons: -Rated @ 500Mbps but built in port is 10/100Mbps. Although most networking product ratings are theoretical, this product can not and will never be able to exceed the ethernet port's 100Mbps limitation. -Like all powerline networking devices power strips are not recommended.

Not terrible, but not the best solution.

Cory L., Newegg

  • Pros: - Easy to deploy - Fast in short distances - Seems to transfer breakers flawlessly (see Cons) - Great for smaller needs (see Cons)
  • Cons: - After a short distances across the house (same breaker) device because very erratic with throughput. - While they claim 100 Mbps (approximated) device can only deliver 40 Mbps in my usage once I went 2-3 rooms away. - I think this would be fine as long as you didn't want to do any large bandwid...

Good Product

  • Summary: This is an eggpert review for the TP-LINK Model TL-PA4010KIT Nano Powerline Adapter. These devices are used to add network/internet capabilities to a device through your electric outlets. The Powerline came undamaged and is well packed.
  • Pros: Easy Setup. Great for Adding internet to a room where WiFi or Ethernet cord distance could be an issue. Device is small.
  • Cons: Can't use it connected to a surge protector. All PowerLine and Powerline like devices share this limitation but. When you outlet has only 2 sockets it is a pain to dedicate 1 of them for the Powerline. This Device and other like it the quality of the signal is based of a few factors. Distance fro...

  • Summary: It works like it was designed to. I used it for my VOIP system at home, sounds great on the other end as well. I would buy a couple more to extend my network over my house.

Decent little powerline network adapters

Joshua M., Newegg
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: Since I am an EggXpert reviewer, I decided to take apart one of my units (not recommended for a buyer to do as this voids your warranty and poses a safety hazard). I am an electronics tech by trade and internally these units seem to be very sound and solidly built.
  • Pros: These units appear to be fairly quality built. They use an Atheros chipset. They work all over my apartment without much trouble. Setting up these units was a breeze and they worked right out of the box without needing any technical support or trouble shooting. I saw decent speeds as I tested the...
  • Cons: These units will need plugged into the wall, not a surge suppressor or battery backup, in which case this is a slight downfall, as you lose power protection and if you use battery backups your network connection will drop if the power goes out. The units advertise 500 mpbs, but this is a figure d...

Seamless. Works as advertised.

Gregory B., Newegg

  • Summary: I ordering more as soon as I finish this review.
  • Pros: Set up was about 2 min. Not counting walking down to router in the basement or opening the box, which took longer. Tried it all over the house. The house was built in 1932 and some of the wiring is pretty old and scary. Depending on outlet, I got between 40 and 55 Mbps download speed on Comcast d...

If you cannot run a wire this is the next best thing

Cruz, Amazon

  • Summary: I have some older model TP-Link powerline adapters and when one failed I needed to replace it (FYI Tp-Link replaced The broken one under warranty but it took several weeks) . This filled in perfectly and I now have some spares around. Works in conjunction with the older model ones.

Screaming Fast

Joseph Shahoud, Amazon
27 June 2015
  • Summary: This product is an absolute God send. I purchased these to replace an older D-Link set. The difference is like night and day. Screaming fast. I use this for my X-Box. With the previous set, I had lag out the wazoo and watching any video was impossible. These scream.
