I'd buy them again, but I don't have to: they just keep working! More than 2 years now!

  • Summary: Two years ago--that's right--two years ago, I bought these units for a new home that was much more "spread out" than our old house. Recently a friend was "b........"(complaining) that his powerline set up sucked. I recommended mine, and then decided it was about time I let other people know how well it has worked for two years.

Good for a few years....

  • Summary: Been using these for years. Get about 20MBps through the wiring in my house. They go bad after a few power outages, so it is good to have extras on hand. Eventually, they start locking up and you have to unplug and reset..... Then after a few more storms, even the reset does not work. Took a broken one apart and found the wires toasted. They do run hot but overall, work great.

  • Summary: I've got my biz internet (cable modem,- LAN) network, network drive and some printers in the basement so I have this (TRENDnet) connected down there and a home office 2 levels up in the house. Some of my clients have VPN access and I wanted the best connection speed even from the home office upstairs.

  • Summary: I know that this is a prior generation product, but I have been using a pair of these for a good while, and needed to add connectivity to another room. I am operating two Roku 3 devices on the receiving ends. Data speeds are excellent and I have no buffering issues.

Good but could be better!

  • Summary: In today's day and age, you usually expect to plug something in and just start working with it. I had this expectation of this product. I will take part of the blame to say that I had an improper perception. I plugged both of these units in, plugged them into network equipment...... and no data. I need to spend 15 minutes to troubleshoot and just have not had the time. I think that they are good pieces of gear, I just had improper expectations.

Good but not great

Bryan DeWolfe, Amazon
1 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought a Smart TV and I was looking to boost the internet into an area that the wireless was not so hot. For this purpose the device was successful. The device seems to have issues communicating to other devices on my home network (e.g. Smart TV gets disconnected from one of the PC's). When I called, I spent an hour of my life on the phone explaining my issue and was cut off. The support person did call me back and said they can fix my issue but it would cost me money.

  • Summary: The design is for places without internet connection, and use the power line to transmit the internet signal. However, it reduce the internet signal speed a lot.

Worled great for awhile

  • Summary: I did my research on this product and paid the extra for what I thought was quality. It was easy to hook up and worked well right out of the box. I used it to stream movies on my TV maybe twice a week and after 5 months and it quite working. I tried all the troubleshooting tips and nothing worked. Stopped syncing to each other. I sent a request for tech support at Trendnet and have yet to hear back. This should still be under warranty and will see what happens.
