3 out of 5 eggsDecent but not great

This review is from: ZyXEL PLA4201 Mini Powerline Ethernet Adapter Up to 500Mbps

Pros: Plug and Play simplicity

Cons: Poor performance. The throughput of these devices is roughly equivalent to the wireless-G I had previously used. Our house is small and single level so the distance is not great, but perhaps the house wiring is impacting performance. Nonetheless, I think the money spent would have been better used toward the purchase of a wireless-N bridge instead.

Other Thoughts: I'm a little nervous about the quality of ZyXel products as I had a Zyxel router before that began having connection issues after a few months usage. I also noted the reviews of other ZyXel powerline products stating that the devices often died within the warranty period. If these had not been on sale, I would not have purchased them.
