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 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
Summary: I've used Ethernet-over-powerline adapters for about 3.5 years now. They are ABSOLUTELY awesome, and SUPER convenient. I had 4 of ZyXEL units. However, first one died after about a year of use. It simply stopped responding. So I just plugged in another one and off I went... The second unit stopped getting synced about a a year or so after, and lastly 3rd unit stopped getting synced in September of 2010).
Summary: Picked this up on sale -- At $75, it's basically the cheapest powerline kit out there. I'm using this kit in a room about 3 or 4 meters away from the router. I don't have a Gbit router around, so my speeds were locked to 100 Mbit from the router. Transfer speeds between machines were basically on par with the regular setup. All in all, it does the trick.
