Summary: These damn things are amazing. They just work. No programming, no fussing and fighting. My PS3 is out of wireless range, so I hooked up the LAN using these adapters. Been using for a year now. Streaming Netflix, gaming, internet, YouTube, and streaming music from a local media server. NEVER any problems with my connection. Also- I bought a third adapter just like these two for a different room. All worked together perfectly.
Good purchase at the time; 500 Mbps is the way to go now.

Summary: I've had these for a couple of years now, so forgive the dated review. These work fine for a couple of areas in my house that wi-fi just won't cover. As online reviews, as well as reviewers here have noted, 200 Mbps is theoretical only and you should not expect to attain these speeds. However, if you have no other solid options for coverage in spot areas, these will improve the situation for not a lot of cost.
A nice easy, economical way to add ethernet from your router

Summary: This really works and set up is easy. You need to plug into a wall outlet, not a power strip, apparently. Faster than my G wi-fi and doesn't degrade. Good for remote places in your house, old computers with ethernet only and streaming on playstation.
Summary: I purchased a pair of these a few years back. I do not feel secure doing purchases or bank transactions over a wireless connection. With this product I can do a direct connect to my router that is located in a different room. I also use this in conjunction with a network switch to connect to my ROKU and PS3. I know both of those have wireless connections, but I find I get less lag with this adapter. I bought a third to go into my bedroom when I purchased a SMART TV.
Summary: Of course there's the wireless for the PS3 but when you live in a multi-story townhome it can get hairy at times with the online gaming. Since I got the Trendnets (yes multiple sets) that problem has been resoundingly resolved! I seriously recommend to any gamer!
Summary: Purchased this product to have a wired connection in one room. Whenever I attempted to hoop it up I would lose wireless connections on all other devices. The directions indicate entering a password from the back of the unit into the software program, but when I tried to do this, the program indicated the password was incorrect. I called technical support and they were clueless on how to use this unit.
Summary: I brought my first set about 6 months ago and had no issues installing. I just purchased 2 additional ones and had some major issues as the direction from the box is not the same way I was assisted with from customer service. I had 3 different customer service reps and the 3rd one resolved the issue. All the devices have to have the same name...which the first 2 reps was not able to explain to me.
Summary: Just plug and play, works great. This was my first experience with powerline networking. I'm using it in a big house to get my internet connection from where it comes in the house down to where the computer is in the basement. This works in conjunction with two Belkin adapters without issues. The powerline network provides better throughput and reliability for a desktop than adding a wifi card would have.
