1 out of 5 eggsQuick Setup, Trips Circuit Breaker

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 500Mbps

Pros: I purchased the TP-WPA4220KIT due to the high rating. The installation was very quick and painless, just plug it in to each outlet and router and you're done.

Cons: The device continuously tripped my circuit breaker, literally leaving me in the dark.

Other Thoughts: After much research, I learned that it's may be due to the arc (breaker) faults on high frequencies, and these devices transmits data on the powerline at high frequencies.

I did find a suggestion that HomePlug AV2 supported devices with a ground plug may fair better.

I can not recommend this device and will be returning it.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk-DON'T BUY

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 500Mbps

Pros: less expensive than wifi.

Cons: Link speed was 50 Mbps when both adapters plugged into the same outlet. When plugged into an outlet 15 feet away, speed dropped to 15 Mbps. At 30 feet (where i need to use it) speed had dropped to 1 Mbps. TP-LINK tech support person essentially told me I was out of luck!

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for your review.

Even though the outlets may only be 15 or 30 feet away, the wires in the wall may be looping a lot longer than that.

These long distances could cause the signal to degrade and slow down the connection.

One suggestion to look at if you haven't already is to make sure that both devices are plugged in with the same orientation.

Either they're both facing up, or both facing down. This is mostly due to the polorization which could cause some slowness in the network.

If you still have issues or concerns then feel free to contact our 24 hour techncial support team.


Best Regards!

1 out of 5 eggsflakey from the start

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 500Mbps

Pros: Well it was easy to set up and it worked fine for ten minutes. It came with patch cables, we swapped them to make sure they were good but the problem persisted.

Cons: It started to get flaky and dropped connections every ten minutes or so. After one day it was completely dead.

Other Thoughts: New Egg issued an RMA right away and I'm in the process of getting a refund. I like New Egg, their service is great but once in a while you just get some bad gear...

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

We are sorry that you have had some issues with this device and we hope that your RMA'd device will work a lot better.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Device

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 500Mbps

Pros: Fast
Small
Compact
Does as advertised
Has nice software to update firmware

Cons: Might not operate at full capacity if you plug it in via a power strip or some old power lines. Works great in my house and provides a reliable connection.

Price is steep unless on sale.

Other Thoughts: At first I would lose connection every once and a while, but then I updated the firmware and it works flawlessly. It's just like if I would have an Ethernet cable running through the walls.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for Data not Good for VOIP

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 500Mbps

Pros: Size, price, ease of set-up

Cons: Not good enough for VOIP connection

Other Thoughts: bought these to hide a cat6 cable providing data to a VOPI phone and computer. The connection goes through the phone first, then feeds to the computer, so I know the computer's thirst for data isn't the problem. Seemed to work fine at first, then after about 10 days, both I and the person on the other end of the phone noticed choppy voices. Rebooted several times, it didn't help. I had to go back to a hard connection on the phone. Computer data seemed to work excellent. Not sure why all seemed fine at first, then it developed problems.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 500Mbps

Pros: It works out of the box.

Cons: Bumping either of the adapters even slightly may cause it to lose connection to the power outlet it is plugged in to.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to act as a medium to another access point across the house. It has no technical issues.
