3 out of 5 eggswifi not in range?

Pros: bought this for my parents house. needed to connect a media player for a tv to the internet. wifi had a really weak signal. wifi router was in the copmuter room as well as multiple computers as well laptops in the other bedrooms. product worked great right out of the box plugged it in to the router and another one in to the media player and they synched in a matter of seconds. No more calls about no wificonnections, no trouble shooting bridge devices, no moving the wireless router to get netflix to play without stopping.

Cons: not as fast as a wireless n connection, but unless you spend the money for a dual band router and have wireless n extenders and bridges, this will get internet to the places your wifi signal is at its weakest.

5 out of 5 eggsThey work for me, but your mileage may vary

Pros: Almost no setup at all. If you live in an apartment, where your power lines may share some common circuits with other residents, you may want to use the included software to link multiple XE104s together into a group with a unique name and password. But for single-family homes, all you need to do is connect one to your router, then plug in others where you need some connectivity. Voila! Instant network without having to run CAT5 cable.
I use these successfully to connect my router to my media room (where I can stream Netflix without problem and connect my DirecTV HD DVR just fine). You can use the included software to monitor the data rate on all units at the same time. Do I get 85mbps? No, but I do see data rates at or above 65mbps at times. Just remember that you must plug these directly into the wall...no surge suppressors or UPS units. Some of those who have experienced problems *may* have some faulty wiring (bad grounds, reversed polarity). It works for me...no complain

Cons: LEDs are bright, which may be distracting if they are within your field of view while watching TV or trying to read.

1 out of 5 eggs2 Sets didn't work in my house

Pros: If they worked, a good concept

Cons: Did not work in my house.

Other Thoughts: I tried two sets of these, exchanging the first set that didn't work. The second set didn't work either. Some outlets in the house wouldn't even connect the devices. The outlets that did work, the connection was inconsistent and slow. I'd suggest you stay away from these.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Really are plug and play
Very reliable

Cons: None, that I can think of

Other Thoughts: Bought a couple of these refurbed from NewEgg over a year ago to connect my CLEAR modem(upstairs) to my router(downstairs). Made sure both power sockets are on the same power phase, plugged them in, and voila! they worked immediately.
Haven't had any problems with them since the day I plugged them in. Don't know the data rate through them, quite honestly, but the end-to-end speed is about what I expect for my ISP connection, up to around 5 MB. Oh, and it's true, the status lights are bright enough to use as night lights.

3 out of 5 eggsOK but not the greatest

Pros: Easy setup, just plug it in and you are ready to go. I do a lot of side repair work and these are great for when I'm working on a computer on my kitchen table that doesnt have wifi.

Cons: 85mbits is very optimistic for performance. They may have got that in a test lab, but in real world you will not get close to that. I live in a brand new house (2 years old) and the best I get is about 5megabits, and thats on the same circuit breaker. I get about the same performance across different breakers in the house.

Encryption software doesnt work on Windows 7 very well.

Flakey performance when they get warm, so if you have them plugged in the back of a desk with poor air circulation you will have reset issues..

4 out of 5 eggsWorks but YMMV

Pros: It's simple to set up. Just plug in the devices, give them a minute to sync up and then you're good to go.

Cons: The speeds through some parts of the house were slower than wireless. The problem with powerline adapters is the further the signal has to travel, the slower it gets.

Other Thoughts: My breaker box is located in a detached garage. So the signal has to go from one adapter all the way there and back to the other adapter. To verify it was the distance affecting it, I plugged both adapters in outlets I knew were on the same breaker and I saw much faster speeds (almost double). In the end, I bought some recertified routers that were DD-WRT compatible and set them up as wireless bridges to use with all my network capable things.

3 out of 5 eggshorrible longevity

Pros: plug and play, works great for a while, fast connection

Cons: Only lasted about six months.

Other Thoughts: I think because these are always on, and frequent power outages in my area, they don't last very long.
