Works great!!!

Daniel E., Newegg
26 March 2013
  • Pros: Dramatic speed increase over my wireless weak spots in the house. Plugged them in and they worked instantly! They also paired instantly and while using the utility the speed actually went up slightly once paired for whatever reason.
  • Cons: The passwords do not work that are on the back of the devices. I have contacted support but have yet to hear back.

Some gotchas

Randy M., Newegg
16 February 2013
  • Summary: These devices are a bit complicated to get right. First of all, understand that they have a range limit inside of your house. This means they may not work between any two arbitrary outlets, only ones that are relatively close on the wiring, depending on how noisey your wiring is.
  • Pros: Low latency (<4ms for me), good speeds, transparent operation (usually)
  • Cons: Can be difficult to link up, heavy line noise may disable it altogether (see Other thoughts)

Easy, fast but large and unreliabile

Reena M., Newegg
8 February 2013
  • Summary: Based on my happiness with the first pair bought July 2011, I bought another pair in November 2011 and a third pair for another location. These devices have operated well during this time connecting a five port gigabit switch for my home theater (Receiver, BD player, TV and HTPC) on which I've been...
  • Pros: Simple to set up, having just one button Fast connection over power lines No software needed
  • Cons: Large devices difficult to position Failure rate

Serves the purpose

Jack P., Newegg
9 January 2013
  • Summary: Got these last March on sale for a very good price. While I am satisfied, at the regular price I might consider others.
  • Pros: Reliable connection in relatively remote areas of the house.
  • Cons: Depending upon location, and even at times within the same location , the connection speed varies at times. According to the TP-Linl software speeds range from 50-60 MBps to 20-40 MBPs. Even at the slower speed, it is sufficient for my needs. My DSL conection is only 6 MBPs, so not a drag. While ...

Works well

Raquel G., Newegg
1 January 2013
  • Pros: I got this powerline adapter to ensure a more reliable connection to a computer furthest away from the wireless router. I would say the connection speed is almost equivalent to an actual ethernet connection.
  • Cons: On occasion the adapters may need to be reset, which is particularly annoying especially if the adapters are far away from one another (which if you are getting this, is probably the case). Despite being a seldom occurrence, there is nothing like getting on your computer to check something quickl...

Bad spacificactions, good pruduct.

  • Summary: The plug is not the European plug format as shown in the picture and comes with the American plug format. You should mention this or change the picture. Everithing else, the product works fina and easy to set up.

Attention!-DON'T HOLD PAIR BUTTON TOO LONG

msteve1967, Amazon
18 September 2012
  • Summary: First of all, let me say that I believe that this is a great product. I have now hooked it up to three different devices in difficult to reach, remote areas of my house and have seen dramatic improvements in streaming compared with WiFi. Why not 5 stars?

Works well, with some caveats

Fredm, Amazon
17 September 2012
  • Summary: It is easy to hook up the two devices to your router and powerline. However, to hook up a third is not clear from the documentation (which indicates all you have to do is press the button, just as when you hooked up the first two).

User Review

Paul Y., Newegg
15 September 2012
  • Pros: Get it out from the box, took couple min to sync and install. Works good so far linking the PC from downstairs which has weak wireless signal. Maintain at 100 speed. Not bad at all.
  • Cons: Hope it will go above 100 or more for the speed.......
