3 out of 5 eggschange of heart

Pros: Update to previous review....

Cons: We've had some time with these units now and its been a little hit or miss. Here's what works - Netflix streaming to my PS3 works beautifully, no problems. Here's what doesn't work - Vudu movies on the same PS3 would barely load, and XBMC is very unreliable and almost not useable. Even my wife's old macbook pro hardwired into these units is experiencing a lot of latency. I analyzed her network traffic using wireshark and there are tons of retransmissions. If she downloads a file off the web over the powerline units and i do the same over our wireless, I get done MINUTES before her. I think it has something to do with the two devices being in separate rooms as I don't experience any latency at all on the machine (hooked up to a third unit) which is in the same room as the power line unit that is cabled up to my router.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Plug in Play, provided cables, oh and it works!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Being an I.T./Network professional, I was skeptical at the performance of these little units, however since I bought a few of these kits and installed them in my home, I am impressed. Netflix streams to my PS3 flawlessly, general internet browsing is a breeze from any connected machine, and is super convenient when wireless isn't the best option (and lets be honest, wireless never really is the BEST option).

I didn't buy these particular ones from newegg, but I do own them. Seriously, if you're not a fan of wireless and having to put range extenders everywhere in your house, these little guys are for you. I suppose there is the chance if you live in an older home there might be issues with the quality of the signal over your home's electrical system, as I live in a home that is only a few years old, this system works flawlessly.

5 out of 5 eggs2 years later, going strong

Pros: I'm a network IT for a local company, bought 3 of these kits for my home and 2 for the office from a competing site because they had a crazy $20 dollar blowout deal on them, much cheaper than fishing rj-45 cable, even if you do it yourself. They aren't as fast as the new models that are out, but when do you use more than this speed, except when doing local ftp anyway?

Cons: they are picky about static in the powerline, which can be caused by various appliances like ovens, microwaves, heaters, air conditioners, and fluorescent lights, but this is a known issue in the technology itself, not just this product.

Other Thoughts: this is my home network setup: dual gigabit from server to switch, gigabit to wired devices in that area (bluray, wifi router, ps3 #1, media pc #1), wifi repeaters on each floor, netgear 100nas to office workstation (2 floors above) my gaming pc (2 floors above) boyfriend's gaming pc (2 floors above) bedroom switch connecting another bluray, ps3, smart tv, media center pc (1 floor above) guest bedroom switch connecting bluray, and w/e the guest wants to connect.

All the powerline adapters never break a sweat unless i'm doing heavy ftp stuff, but even then the lowest speed I saw was a consistent 9.5 megabytes per second, which is 76 mbits per sec. All my pcs do 2x weekly backups to the server, and yes it does take a long time and yes it would be faster if I had gigabit, but I don't need it.

BTW: compressed 1080p streams use 10-20mbits per second, depending on the 1080p bit rate. Don't be shy of using this for HD video.

5 out of 5 eggsfinally, a solution!

Pros: As a guy who gets spotty wifi on the second floor, I was looking for a solution that would be a consist connection. I had talked with various tech friends of mine and had doubts, cause they told me it had to be on the same circuit. I took this for a test drive and it works absolutely amazing! Just plug and play at the very truest level. I run xbox live, stream videos over netflix, and have not lost connection at all. Highly recommend if you don't want to wire your house ($$$).

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: I think it took me longer to get this out of the box than to setup. so simple, no software to configure.

5 out of 5 eggsFinally strong signal at other end of house

Pros: Netgear´s XETB1001 85Mbps Powerline adapter is the greatest thing since sliced salami. Our house is fairly long, with four walls between modem and our main room -- and we like it that way. But despite excellent Cisco wifi setup, Netflix, computers and VOIP phones were spotty in that location. So we added two powerline adapters to try them out -- and the same day they arrived, we ordered two more for another part of the house. Super easy plug and play, NO difficulty whatever, and very strong reception for Netflix, computer, and phone.

Cons: Nope. No negatives whatever.

Other Thoughts: Builders should add these to their McMansions. Cheap and perfect solution for whole-house internet.

2 out of 5 eggsworks if you don't have a wireless kb/mouse

Pros: Easy to connect, faster than my older powerline unit, config utility was nice. Netgear support was very quick and responsive (within 15 hours).

Cons: As soon as I plugged it in, my wireless Microsoft keyboard/mouse combo (mostly) stopped working - about every 3-4 keypress or mouse movement would show up. Apparently this is relatively common with powerline adapters - however this model does not have a "Enable 27mhz mouse notch" option to fix it like the older Netgear HDX111 has in its configuration utility. Netgear told me it was a known problem for this model and had me return it to Newegg.

Other Thoughts: Learned from this experience that both Netgear support and Newegg's return policy were great.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for MediaCenter PC streaming

Pros: Plug in and go, can't ask for an easier setup and the best part is it works flawlessly. I've had this set for over 3 years and never once have I had any issues.

Cons: Can't plug into a surge protector... not that it's mattered.

Other Thoughts: 85mb/s may seem pretty slow compared to the 200mb/s and higher models that are out now, but I'm still able to stream 1080p movies (compressed) to my MCPC without a hiccup.

5 out of 5 eggsForget about wireless, this is it.

Pros: Can be setup as Mesh, Gateway, or Hub-and-spoke network configurations.

Very simple connection. Works like running cat cable, but without the work!

Connection signal, latency and speed is far superior to any wireless protocol for SOHO.

Cons: Encryption setup is a little buggy, but does work.

Other Thoughts: I connected three workstation and a Xerox Workcentre printer to a server with these in a large commercial building..

For two way encrypted PC connection, use the software included to add the passcode on the unit's sticker to each PC.

For a NAS or printer, just enter the remote unit's passcode (on the sticker) into the client PC for full r/w access.

If you would like PC-A to share files with PC-B, but not have PC-B share with PC-A, then don't give the input the non-share PC's passcode into the share PC.

Very simple, but hard to explain.

4 out of 5 eggsXBOX Live Gamer

Pros: My XBOX is on the 2nd Floor and my PC internet connection is on the 1st, yet there's absolutely no lag on multiplayer gaming.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: just plug-in & connection

Cons: not yet

Other Thoughts: I chose this model because I was worry about "encryption" issue. No problem at all!
I get almost flat down-load speed around 800 kbps w/ my cable internet. No more WiFi ...
