Does not live up to promise

  • Summary: First the good Setup is easy, plug in one, plug in the other and push the button on the first and then the second. It syncs quickly and to add more, repeat. For the most part they are reliable, only occasionally have I had to unplug and I'm not 100% sure if it was this things fault or not. As for speed, it's better then wifi, but this is where we go to bad. Bad: While much better then wifi, it does not attain 500mbps.

Does its job with a few noticeable flaws

  • Summary: I bought these to avoid running cables through my apartment, which has an extremely inconveniently located coax port. They definitely work at a basic level. I have three main complaints about them: 1. I was unable to achieve a high quality signal between them. Maybe the fact that I'm in a building with so many residents causes noise in the electrical system, but I had a difficult time finding two plugs to use that provided adequate performance on these devices.

I returned it.

  • Summary: It comes with 2 CAT5 cables. I have a gigabit network at home and I routinely transfer files between my computers at 100 MB/s (800 mbps). The one place I am missing such speed is the 2nd floor where the bedrooms are, and I was hoping that I could fix that problem with this device without having to feed a CAT6 cable thru the walls, but alas this fell far short of what I was hoping. I tested it in steps.

OK - I hope!

  • Summary: Replacing wireless connections w/ poor signal. Currently not sure whether this is an improvement or not. Not sure if this is normal, if I've got a bum adapter(s), or if there's an issue w/ units going into power saving mode.
  • Pros: 2 kits, 4 adapters Worked right out of the box exactly as stated in instructions.
  • Cons: Worked pretty good until they didn't. After a few days the units lost connections. Wouldn't reconnect by simply using the pair button on the bottom of the units. Had to unplug units and start over. Currently working, but well below 500mps - more like 50 according to the utility software provided.

speed is NOT 500Mbps

  • Summary: I have never read a review about anyone testing more then 2 of these and I bought 2 kits to use in 4 rooms of this house. I can say that everything works, no problems talking to each other and (I don't think) there are any speed hits going over two. I gave this a 3/5 for the fact that it works as advertised but -2 for the horiffic speeds. If I bought a gigabit router and only got 20M/s max it would get the same response.
  • Pros: They are very quick to setup, push one button and go. Works with 2+ devices just as easy.
  • Cons: Nowheres NEAR the 500Mbps these are advertisted as, the absolute highest I have ever gotten is 8M/s (64Mbps). This is a 2 year old house and from what I have read this is the absolute best case scenario to expect. With all the false advertising that are surrounding products these days this one has to take the cake. There is no way in hell this would ever get near the 500Mbps this is advertisted as, or even 1/5 of that, and that includes every single review I have ever...

TP Link TL-PA511KIT AV500-Gigabit-Powerlineadapter

TL-PA511KIT User , Conrad
2 October 2013
  • Summary: Die Erwartungen wurden nicht wirklich erfüllt. Obwohl das Produkt gemäss Tech Specs einen ordentliche Durchsatz hinbringen müsste, ist dieser eher Bescheiden. Ich habe max. 40'000 kBits/s hinbekommen bei eine 150er upc Leitung. Direkt am Modem angeschlossen habe ich die vollen 150. Durchschnitt ist 28'000. Des weiteren hängt es noch stark davon ab, was sonst noch alles an der Leitung angeschlossen ist und wie weit der Abstand zwischen den beiden Geräte ist.
  • Pros: günstig, schnell installiert
  • Cons: leistung mässig und hängt von vielem ab, braucht viel platz an steckdose

Bon

  • Summary: Utilisé en remplacement des PA210 par rapport à ceux-ci : +/ Les PA511 sont plus sensibles aux perturbations des multiprises : Si cela pose un problème, je pense qu'il vaut mieux s'orienter vers la série PA551. +/ L'appairage de deux kit (soit 4 prises au total) a été nettement plus complexe que prévu : Obligé d'aller sur le site du constructeur, pour télécharger l'outil et paramétrer chaque prise. Je ne me rappelle pas avoir été obligé de faire ceci avec les 210.

  • Summary: Están bien, pero la tecnología todavía tiene pegas. Si estás alejado del punto de origen, pierde pero mucho señal, no llegando casi ni al 10%, dependiendo si lo conectas a regleta, calidad de instalación eléctrica y distancia. Analizar bien antes de comprar.

Rapport qualité prix excellent

  • Summary: Tout mon réseau (sauf mon NAS) est de chez TP-LINK, routeur, clef wifi, etc... J'ai acheté ces CPL pour connecter mon boitier WD TV LIVE HD à mon réseau et donc pouvoir accéder à mon NAS. Cela fonctionne, tout passe sans problème... sauf les dvix Full HD1080p sur lesquels on observe des saccades tout les deux ou trois secondes. La distance câblée n'est pourtant que de 15 mètres, et la maison est neuve (01/2012).
