Great plug-and-play alternative to unsightly wires or unstable wireless connections.

Summary: These are a great alternative to routing network cables all over the place in an attempt to get a wired connection going. There's no software to install or manage, and you can be up and running as soon as you plug everything in.
Summary: Just installed these units. Here are the highlights: Instructions ----------- - Poorly written manuals - Poorly designed web site - Poorly designed Tools/Configuration CD The confusion mainly centered around the sequence of how things need to be plugged in, and how to upgrade the firmware.
Works well. Compatible with the PLA407's we bought with it.

Summary: No practical way to hardwire the house without doing a lot of finish work, and wifi performance is poor due to the density of the neighborhood. This fit the bill for several devices where we wanted good bandwidth and low latency.
Summary: Plugged them into the wall, plugged switches into both of them, and they worked out of the box with no other setup required. Didn't read the instructions or anything (no shock there). Works well for streaming 1080P as well as Xbox live. No buffering/connection issues at all so far after a week.
Summary: I own three of this item to link my basement, first floor and second floor. I used to have 85Mbps from another company, I got actual 6.5Mbps. For this product, I got 16Mbps, so its quality is comparable to other brand.
Summary: The Zyxel PLA401v3 is a pretty good product, with some caveats. If you're lucky, you'll plug in the units, connect your machine and router, and everything will fire up. Mine did, at least for a week or so. Then, the units seemingly failed.
