4 out of 5 eggsTP-Link Nano Powerline

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

Pros: is a great addition to any online home. Just plug one box into the wall near the modem and run your ethernet cable to the box. Now you have a spare ethernet port anywhere in your home where there is a wall outlet. very simple procedure with no software to be installed and no more searching for "hotspots" in your home where your wireless adapter gets a good clear signal, just plug in to hard-wired ethernet anywhere.
also a great addition is when not in use the powerline nano adapter has a power save mode.
offers ~100Mbps no matter where it is in our home.

Cons: i couldn't find any flaw with the design or the functionality. the only con i could see is it advertising 500Mbps but only ever hitting ~100Mbps.

Other Thoughts: could only add up to four of these in our home, it would be great if I could just leave one plugged in every room of the house.
any newly manufactured home should offer this type of connection to fit every room. just an ethernet port on every electrical outlet.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat product with a few drawbacks

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

Pros: I've had a three of these things in my home for about a year. During that time they've mostly worked great. Primary use has been for streaming video and audio from a server located in my home office and from the internet via a router located in my home office. Connections go through breakers in my power system and generally work well. In the first year of use I would occasionally (maybe once a month) need to reset one or the other of the powerline adapters. This was irritating, but not a deal breaker.

Cons: Recently, the living room powerline adapter started needing to be reset more frequently; often multiple times a day. This would usually happen while streaming video from my server and, less often, while streaming from the internet (Netflix, Hulu, etc). I swapped the adapter near the living room TV for a different one (I bought two kits but was only using three of the adapters) and saw no improvement. I suspect that the problem is not with the powerline adapters, but that something has changed in the local power grid that's giving the adapters problems. The adapter that needed frequent resetting is on a different breaker from the adapter the server and router are on. A third adapter in my bedroom is on the same breaker as the home office adapter and continues to work fine for streaming.

Other Thoughts: I got a Steam Link (a device that lets me play PC games on my TV as if I were sitting at the PC) for Christmas. The Steam Link and my gaming PC were connected via powerline. This would work for a few seconds and then hang. I turned on diagnostics and noticed that lag over the powerline connection was normally about 60 ms but would spike to several hundred ms every few seconds. Steam Link is very sensitive to lag and this problem made the powerline adapter unusable for that purpose. I suspect that these spikes are also responsible for the need to frequently reset the living room adapter. To resolve the problem I ended up running CAT5e cable under my house and eliminating the powerline connection between my home office and my living room. The powerline connection between my home office and my bedroom continues to work well.

TL;DR When these work, they work very well. They may or may not work in your particular house's power grid. They work better when they're both on the same breaker. They are probably not a good solution for any application that requires minimal lag time between devices.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

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

Pros: Setup only took about 2 minutes out of the box. Using this over a wifi adapter has gotten me from >1 mbps speeds to about 15 mbps which is as fast as my internet connection gets. This was well worth the price

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to have a faster connection away from their main router without worrying about getting another modem+router and all that. This product has a much easier setup and a lower price.

5 out of 5 eggsI am glad these exist!!

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

Pros: I had moved in with a buddy of mine and his wife to help them in their new home. In the basement they didnt have any drops for cable or anything so he had mentioned "these things that plug into the wall and you can use internet through them" so I looked them up and found these. They arent 1000Mbps so be aware of that if you have really great internet. I was able to play World of Warcraft and stream youtube while he was using the internet upstairs with no latency issues. Easy set up, after unboxing, plugging in and pairing, I was up and running in less than 5 minutes. Even after I moved and used these again, they stayed paired to each other and with nothing but plugging them in again I was up and running on my new internet connection.

Cons: No cons here really, they are a little large so just be mindful of that when plugging into a wall outlet that you have something else plugged into.

Other Thoughts: If people want to avoid having to run cable all through their house, or dont know how to, buy these, or the 1000. You probably lose some transfer rates, but really, even in games I never noticed any issues with home latency other than when my provider went out.

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems

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

Pros: Hooked them up (plug and play) and had a quick connection.. I couldn't stream Emby to my daughters room via wi-fi without stuttering, this fixed the connection problems.

Cons: Only cost me 30, should have probably spraing for the ones with AC pass through. Had to buy non surge protector power splitters because you cannot plug these into surge protectors. I tried and they didn't work.

1 out of 5 eggs1.5 years later

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

Pros: It works if....see other

Cons: Loses connection constantly.

Other Thoughts: My setup hasn't changed at all. There is a sleep mode or whatever that you can configure within the devices. This is turned off. It's supposed to not wait for a queue up from the network cable in order to establish a connection with the other side (PoE adapter).

The only way to fix the constant or random connection losses is to run a constant ping from my computer to my router. That doesn't eat up bandwidth or anything, but it is VERY annoying. I strongly suggest not getting this particular model/company's PoE devices.

Secondly this doesn't transfer anywhere near 500Mbs. And, yes I know how to hook it up and make it connect at that speed. The best transfer I've seen is around 80Mbits.

1 out of 5 eggsdisappointing

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

Pros: Cheap.
Easy to get basic setup.

Cons: Major DLNA problems.
One unit failed after 3 days.

Other Thoughts: Very easy to setup. Was not able to get working with my DLNA server. I guess this is a known problem with these units, with no real solution (or at least I couldn't get it resolved). Had one unit fail on me within 3 days, so I guess I will never find out.

Would not recommend.
