Summary: I had one of seven month old Trendnet 200 units die after a power failure, and when I came for a replacement I found Tiger Direct had them on clearance for $27.99. $28 is a great deal for any 500 unit with pass through connections, since they used to sell for approximately $61 on Amazon. I noticed that Trendnet has discontinued this model and replaced it with the 200 speed units. As such, I bout two sets for less than what one set cost a month ago.
Summary: I purchased these through a gold box deal some time ago. I live in military base housing in Guam and I finally decided to hook them up. Set up took a max of 8-10 minutes and works great! Main reason I purchased these is because living in Guam our house is basically a concrete block and streaming movies through the wifi just wasn't cutting it. Now the streaming video is great and frustration is gone. I plan on purchasing more for other locations in the house.
Summary: Product works great and plug 'n play installation. No mess with network cables. Connects virtually everywhere at your home power line. Connections within seconds and one can enjoy the same speed like connected via real cables. It is a must buy item that one would not willing to run tons of cables in the household.
Summary: After several failed attempts to use my Samsung Smart TV features, I bought this Powerline Adapter. My wireless signal was not strong enough to utilize with the TV. The TV would not connect with a wireless range extender even thought my other devices had no problems connecting. No support line could help me connect. I ordered the TRENDnet.
Summary: Love Trendnet - have a few at home and it works great. Two tvs stream Netflix at the same time with no problem while there are three other workstations with laptops working online. Fantastic product!
A great alternative to a wired or wireless connection

Summary: I had a new Blu-Ray player with a network connection in a bedroom that wasn't wired. I tried using it with its wireless connection, but it was too slow. I saw this pop up as a lightning deal and decided to give it a try. It was really easy to install and everything worked instantly. The speed of the connection isn't quite as good as a straight wired connection, but it was A LOT faster than the wireless. It fit my needs perfectly.
Summary: I have been rather skeptical of these things in the past. However, I did have a real need for one and after reading the reviews, I took the plunge. It was very easy to set up and it works very well! I am impressed with the performance. If you have a location that you just can't get to via normal methods, I would definitely recommend this.
