Summary: I had not used Powerline networking so I thought I would try it out. Devices seem to work fine with throughput around 100mbs separated by 3 floors. Very cryptic software to set it up though and limited instructions in manual or site.
Summary: I got these as an open box item on NCIX eBay outlet for $45. They work great. From my computer room to my living room I get 180 MBPS. From my computer room in my apartment all the way to the furness room 3 floors down and on the building meter not my apartments one, 38 MBPS. I figured I wouldn't be able to connect at all on another power hookup.
Pros: Does not take up 3nd plug, Fast, Can go apart far away from each other and not fully on the same lines can work
Summary: over all i would get it again if it on sale 79 is too expensive. I like it alot hoping more conventional type similar to this one will be on the market in the future. This is definitely better than wireless or bluetooth if it use withing a building.
Pros: easy to install, can be use almost any where in the house with power outlet.
Cons: heats up over time but to be expected, some times doesn't connect properly. Some outlet might not work on it.
Summary: I've used an 85 mbps "Turbo" Powerline ethernet kit for a couple of years in my house. Substituted in the same location, this Trendnet kit shows a connection speed of 95 mbss where the older kit showed 55 mbps. Although actual effective throughput is only about 25% of the nominal connection speed for both, it's more than adequate for a high-speed internet connection, and it's more stable than wireless.
Pros: Works just like all the other 200mbps HomePlug AV adapters
Summary: I bought this for family in Europe, works with that current as well, it worked well while I was there, used it myself, just bought a second set for myself for Canada, have not tried to hook up more than just a pair in the same time… I am just adding to my original review after having used the pair I got for myself.
Pros: Connects on its own within 3-4 sec of second unit having been plugged in
