Pros: When it works, it works fine! I have tried these in two houses now. One was 1960s construction, I think, and the older house I am in now must have been built in the early 1900s. The devices have worked in both houses, however in the older house some electrical outlets provide MUCH better performa...
Cons: Unfortunately about once a week, the devices stop working and I have to unplug both of them to get them to start working again. Sometimes when this happens, I have to unplug them multiple times to get them to work (but usually just once). They often stop working right when I start using the netwo...
Summary: Only used these to extend sub 20 megabit internet to areas of the house, not to hide a server. I'll defer to other reviewers who did want full speed. 20 megabit and under is working flawlessly!
Summary: Apparently there's always a "your mileage may vary" caveat with these due to the wide variance in home wiring, but these have worked great for me in two different residences, with a switch connected on one end to enable me to connect three or four devices to my network.
Pros: Extremely easy installation, doesn't seem to bottleneck network at all
Cons: Takes up half an outlet and apparently doesn't like surge protectors/extension cords
Summary: This set, and I suspect most on the market today, is easily better than the stumbling Netgear set I slugged it out with and on par with the TrendNet set (bearing in mind that both sets were tested in early to mid 2013).
Pros: This is the third set of powerline adapters that Newegg has sent me to test since the program's inception a few years ago. Previously, sets this size came with the moniker "nano" attached, so it's nice to see them coming down in size as well as price. Performance is perfectly fine, too. I tested ...
Cons: I find the 500Mb rating a little bit deceptive with only 10/100 ports, but that 500 Mb is (theoretically) available to you if you buy more than one set and plug five of them in around your house.
Pros: Very easy setup that is practically plug and play I had poor wireless before I purchased this and my speeds went from 1-2mbs to what I actually pay for at 50mbs! I have no packet loss that I can tell in game and I absolutely love this thing.
