1 out of 5 eggslow quality

This review is from: Actiontec PWR511K01 500Mbps Powerline Network Adapter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: Good and easy to use technology
Good bandwidth / connectivity

Cons: poor quality power adapter - won't power up after couple months usage

Other Thoughts: I bought two pair (4 pieces) and three out of four pieces have stopped working. They do not boot/power up anymore. This happened one after the other, first one went bad within 3 months and then one more in the next month and another one just went bad today. Have no use for the last remaining one as it only works in pairs. When the first one didn't power up, I thought it was just a one-off bad piece, but now 3 out of 4 have gone bad within 5 months and that cannot be coincidence. Its just pure bad quality manufacturing.
This product is designed to always plugged into directly to the power source, so it's nothing but poor quality when it can't handle being plugged in 24X7. I am going to claim the manufacturer warranty and see how good their customer service is.

Pros: No need for long cables

Cons: Connection is slower than wired ethernet. Both died after few months.

1 out of 5 eggsnot the greatest

This review is from: Actiontec PWR511K01 500Mbps Powerline Network Adapter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: easy setup, worked good to begin with

Cons: had it for about 6 months, after 4 months started having a few connectivity issues. I thought this was my cable internet. Turns out it was in the process of failing....very frustrating. Came out this morning, 6 months and 1 week after purchase, and it wouldn't even light up. Unplugged it , tried it again, completely dead. very disappointed in the quality

Other Thoughts: I'm going to try customer service, but don't have a lot of confidence they are going to do anything.... owned it for over 6 months, barely

2 out of 5 eggsstopped working

This review is from: Actiontec PWR511K01 500Mbps Powerline Network Adapter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: seemed fairly stable when it did work

Cons: one of the two power adapters stopped working a little over 6 months of using it. the green power light will not light up and it makes a high pitched noise. the other one is lighting up just fine, but it takes two to tango.

1 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for....
