Summary: Update- I don't know what Amazon did, but to be clear, my review is for the "TL-PA211 STARTER KIT" which has two 200 Mbps adapters. Seems this product is that one, but the heading is totally incorrect at the moment! I bought the adapters from Amazon marketplace seller Flytec Computers in Miami and they had a great price and excellent customer service.
Summary: I bought this for my brother as a birthday present and now I'm the cool sis. His 2-story house has his modem and router upstairs, but he needed internet feed downstairs for his TV and he's worried enough about hackers that he refuses to go wireless. Running cable or this solution were our only options. He called to report 1) it had arrived, 2) it was installed (in 5 minutes) and 3) it was working even better than he'd imagined.
Summary: I was very impressed with the performance of this product. It is extremely easy to install, just plug in to two outlets on the same electrical circuit press one pair button, then press the other (don't make the same mistake as I did, only press the pair button for about 5 seconds on each unit, otherwise the units will reset). The units synced very quickly and then I was good to go! I am getting a very fast throughput, much quicker than wi-fi.
Worked fine for a year, then died a total and sudden death, but TP-LINK was awesome!

Summary: This worked well for a year, and then died a sudden and total death. None of the status lights light up, and the unit is a brick. So I am giving 2 stars for the untimely demise. Replaced it with their Nano AV200 product which worked well, but now have to deal with TP-Link warranty service, which starts with a phone call to Asia, and them taking my name and number to get back to me.
Summary: My wiFi gateway is on the 1st floor of the house in a corner and I had real trouble getting wiFi in the family room where I have a laptop hooked up to the TV. After trying a few things (including a WiFi repeater that didn't work for some of the equipment in the household), I tried these. They have worked like a charm since the beginning. Just plug-in the outlets, that's it. Very reliable.
Summary: I got these before they released the new TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 500Mbps . These still work great. You always have to be conscious of the wiring in the building as old corroded wiring can affect the speeds. I used these in an older apartment and they worked great. I stream Vudu XHD through it and it had no issues.
