Summary: I purchased one of these through Amazon and it has only worked for 10 days before stopping, very disappointed as I had to wait a few months for amazon to get it back in stock as it appeared to get better reviews than most of the alternatives.
Summary: Wow item arrived earlier than predicted, packaged well and securely. Open the box took off all the packaging and checked instructions. Plugged item in pushed the button on my router and the button on the Bridge and connected and working in less that a minute
Summary: After a very brief setup and test... I bought this to replace a much more expensive Gigabit homeplug solution from Belkin that never performed up to scratch. HD streaming was impossible due to stuttering / bandwidth issues so thought I'd give this a try. The setup was very straight forward (which I done manually), connected my Sony TV and PS3 in my living room to it and everything worked perfectly.
Summary: I was looking for a product to wirelessly link a Smart TV, Blu-ray Player and Digital Video Recorder to the Internet for streaming content, (e.g. iPlayer and Lovefilm), and also to Windows laptops, Android smartphones and a NAS via Wi-Fi for DNLA Media Streaming (e.g. music and photos). This was about the only product that I could find at a decent price that fit my requirements. I've had it for a month now and so far it has performed faultlessly.
Summary: When first unpacked and connected to my PC and switched on, it failed to be recognised.I ultimately tried three different browsers and a different Ethernet cable and also borrowed another PC to try it on that. It failed every time! I had downloaded the manual from Trendset's site and it refers to a non-existent Troubleshooting Section for help.
Works well, but needs to be power cycled if router wireless fails

Summary: This unit works well. I have mine installed in the loft with a NAS and a couple of security cams connected. The cams record to the NAS which I also use as backup from my main machine. My only issue with this device is that if I need to power-cycle the router, the Trendnet 640 will not reconnect to the router once the wireless comes back up again. This issue persists until I also power- cycle the Trendnet 640.

Summary: This box was purchased in order to connect 2 Humax PVRs (Foxsat HDR and HDR Fox-T2)to my home network. I've been using this for the past month and it has performed faultlessly since setup. Some have experienced the box dropping the link to their router but I haven't had this happen and it is used almost daily streaming HD video back and forth. This may be because I'm using static addresses on my network or maybe I'm just lucky.
