Summary: We live in a 100 year old house. Wireless connection does not work very well. It would have been expensive and messy to tear apart walls and run wires. This made it very easy. The speed of the signal is much better than I though it would be with 100 year old wiring. I am very pleased with our purchase. We will be adding more adapters in other parts of the house. Netflix works much better when these are used rather than wireless.
Summary: I am not sure it is this set alone, but the speed I see on this quite disappointing. If I connect the two adapters to two plug points in the same room, I get about 128Kbps, and thats the best anywhere I get. If I have one in the basement and one on ground floor, the speed drops to 24Mbps! My wireless cant maintain 24Mbps reliability at where I am using it, so I am keeping it, because it works better than what I have.
Summary: Received my Trendnet 500Mbps Powerline AV Adapter Kit yesterday afternoon. Plugged the set in that evening to setup a FOSCAM wireless IP camera. Worked like a charm in terms of connection. Unplugged the adapter at the end of a nite of troubleshooting FOSCAM network setup. Plugged it into an outlet the following morning near my PS3 and got no lights. Thought the outlet was bad, so decided to check it in the evening when I got home from work.
Summary: I bought this hoping that I would be able to use it for a DirecTV DVR in one of the few rooms in my house without a hardwired ethernet port available. I plugged both adapters in, one to the router and one in the room with the DVR. I tested it out with a computer first and it connected right away. Did a speed test and got the full 25/25 I get with all the other machines in the house.
Summary: I bought a set of trendnet powerline adaptors half year ago. It worked at first, then after half year, one is broken. Since they update their products so frequently, I can't even use the other good one.
Summary: Just because it's 500 Mbps it won't transfer files faster than my old adapter which is 200 Mbps around 2 MB/sec, not to mention loosing sync often. My old D-link adapter at least was stable. I ended up returning it.
Summary: I purchased two of these kits (4 adapters) as a cheaper way of getting network connectivity installed in my existing 2-story house. (Since everybody has WiFi now, the 802.11g spectrum in our neighborhood is so saturated that WiFi has become slow and unreliable.) After a small amount of 'fiddling', I was able to get all 4 network adapters working perfectly. I'm getting just under 400 Mbps between 3 of the adapters, and just over 100 Mbps to the fourth one.
Summary: It seemed too good to be true, so wanted to try, I installed both adaptors in the same room and they communicated at over 400 MBps. I kept one on my first floor and moved the other to my 3rd floor and when they communicated at all it got up to 38 MBps. Might work fine in a smaller place. Returned, I'm going to try wireless extenders next.
