Summary: Purchased these on sale; excellent value compared to other Powerline adapters. Features and construction quality are good considering the price point. Performance is reasonable (but I'm only need it to max out my 10 Mbps internet connection). Sometimes, I need to cycle the power once a day to restore internet access to my PC, but this is not a consistent pattern and I can't be sure it is the Powerline adapter.
Summary: This unit works well but setup can be a bit difficult. Just do as the instructions say. DO NOT plug into a extension cord DO NOT plug into a power strip DO NOT plug into a uninterruptible power supply DO NOT plug into a surge suppressor or isolation unit. Once I got the units synched and found the spots they liked it was easy. It took a little work to find the right spots but they work well and are fast. I am pleased and would recommend them and would buy them again.
Summary: I admit I was quite skeptical when a friend suggested I try an ethernet-over-powerline solution, after my wireless USB adapter died. But after about one week with this device, wow, am I very glad I was wrong! This was literally plug-and-play, and I was up and running very quickly. There was no need to install any software at all. I am running Linux Ubuntu (12.04) as my desktop OS, and it recognized immediately that there was an ethernet cable plugged in.
Summary: These are basically plug and play. I would have liked the utility software to work with the devices without having to plug them directly into my PC. I had a problem when they went to sleep, but the firmware update fixed that issue. The speed is good if you can plug them into the same circuit side of the breaker box (outlets on the same circuit). These solve my problem, but the speed is similar to wifi.
Summary: After years of weak wifi signal in our home office I replaced the connection with these. They work great. It's not as fast as a direct connection between router and NIC but a whole lot faster than the wifi. I would buy them again. Also hooked up our media PC on the TV in the living room that was wifi and get a lot less buffering now.
Summary: Simply put it does what it's supposed to. Plug it in and connect your devices and you're done. Much more reliable than Wifi in my experiance. Instead of buying a wireless dongle or media bridge for you Xbox, PS4, TV, BlueRay, etc. just plug one of these in and hook up a small switch to connect your entire home entertainment center.
Summary: This product works as advertised; it deserves all the praise it's been receiving. On the personal side, I'm very happy to be able to turn off the wireless function on my router and have only hardwired internet throughout my house without stringing cables everywhere. The performance of this unit beats wireless hands down-- no more frustration from dropouts, skipping, etc. that came with wireless. And of course this is much more secure.
