5 out of 5 eggsWorks very well!

This review is from: D-Link PowerLine DHP-601AV AV2 AV1000 Gigabit Starter Kit, up to 1000 Mbps

Pros: Had to try a few different outlets, but was very surprised to be getting very close to gigabit speed through these! Setup was as simple as plugging them in. Have it feeding to a switch on the other side of my house- enough bandwidth for streaming local 1080p video!

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsterrible. didn't work right out of the box

This review is from: D-Link PowerLine DHP-601AV AV2 AV1000 Gigabit Starter Kit, up to 1000 Mbps

Pros: no pros to mention im afraid

Cons: I bought this to replace my flakey old dlink 300 series power line network. The two devices will not see each other, even on the same outlet. there is nothing more i can do except drive back the the store and return it. These are very simple...you plug them in and they are supposed to work. My old ones at least see each other, even though the data rate is atrocious. I will not buy dlink again.

I have years of experience with wiring and networks, but that doesn't help, as these devices are plug and play. If they dont work...they dont work!

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: D-Link PowerLine DHP-601AV AV2 AV1000 Gigabit Starter Kit, up to 1000 Mbps

Pros: full inet speed, main pc wired directly into router at 112mb/s and one wired into this device across the house speed test at 99mb/s. very pleased
easy to install, open box plug them in and done.

Cons: speed reduced when plugged into a gfci outlet, by about half.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked really well for me

This review is from: D-Link PowerLine DHP-601AV AV2 AV1000 Gigabit Starter Kit, up to 1000 Mbps

Pros: Ease of installation, reliability, low latency, speed.

Cons: Not sure... it would be nice if they were smaller.

Other Thoughts: I guess I am lucky and the wiring in my building is good. These adapters paired up painlessly and I cannot find a workload to max them out - I use them to connect two Wi-Fi end-points and when I test file transfers I hit Wi-Fi limit first.

5 out of 5 eggsDHP-601AV Gigabit Starter Kit

This review is from: D-Link PowerLine DHP-601AV AV2 AV1000 Gigabit Starter Kit, up to 1000 Mbps

Pros: 1. Easy Set-Up
2. Small Footprint
3. Just works

Bought this setup and used with 2 5-Port un-managed switches. Easy to setup simply plugged in the cable from my router to the adapter upstairs and one downstairs in the family room. both on same`sh side of the home.
We have a busy household with PS3/PS4, Roku, Xbox 360 and Xb1, 2 ipads, 2 iphones, 3 laptops, desktop , treadmill and smart TV. Most of the stuff we ran wireless in the past all now hard wired and running great!
I have no trouble playing on Xbox Live with others streaming from Hulu/Netflix/Amuhzon (You figure it out)
HD videos buffer almost instantly and speed is much faster than the wireless setup was in the past.
I did not test data speeds for file transfer but I have easily streamed HD videos from anywhere on the network and large downloads of 18GB or more run seamlessly.
I strongly recommend giving this a try before spending time and money trying to upgrade to a newer wireless standard with the same problems that plagued previous wifi standards.

*Make certain this goes directly into the wall do not use a power strip etc.

Cons: 1. Pricey for what it is
2. Might not work in your home depending on wiring and network infrastructure ?

4 out of 5 eggsGood Product

This review is from: D-Link PowerLine DHP-601AV AV2 AV1000 Gigabit Starter Kit, up to 1000 Mbps

Pros: This is a good product. Just plug and play. But speeds is low. i may be getting around 3-4 mbps. Anyway better than my wifi smart tv streaming videos alone. I have LG 55LM8600.

Cons: power consumption. Less than 2 months of ownership. so not sure of the reliability

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than Expected

This review is from: D-Link PowerLine DHP-601AV AV2 AV1000 Gigabit Starter Kit, up to 1000 Mbps

Pros: Easiest setup ever. Plug one in next to the router, plug in another next to the TV, connect the Cat5 cables, and it works instantly. The directions instruct you to hit the black button on the lower side of each device to connect, but I did not find that necessary. No need to put in the network password. Setup could not be easier.

Cons: I paid $70 on sale, and would purchase another pair for the other TVs in the house if the sale was still on. Much more reliable in comparison to WIFI. 3500 SF house, with the router more than 100 feet from the TV. Followed the recommendation to use an outlet on either end that was free of other plugs.

Other Thoughts: Spent a bunch on router after router and range extender after range extender and cable modem after cable modem until I put this device into play, and now just enjoy watching Netflix without interruption. Very occasionally, I will need to reboot the router.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid D-Link PowerLine Adapters

This review is from: D-Link PowerLine DHP-601AV AV2 AV1000 Gigabit Starter Kit, up to 1000 Mbps

Pros: Didn't catch on fire?

Cons: Worse performance than my Gen 1 PowerLine AV adapters that are several years old. Could not get above a 20mbit connection unless I had them directly in the same wall outlet.

Tested with Iperf and with Lan Speed Test; In the same configuration I used with my old first generation (AV1) adapters, which achieved 50-70mbit and I could get no better than 15mbit.

Other Thoughts: My old adapters will literally (yes literally) work from any two wall plugs in my 3 story house. The measured speed ranged from 50 to 70mbit depending on if my AC or electric heater is on.

These adapters will only work on about 1/3rd of my outlets, they are twice as large as my old ones, and get very hot.

And when they do function, it is at unacceptable speeds.

I purchased these because I thought they would be a significant upgrade to what I had before, but instead I find they are worse.

Manufacturer Response:

We value your input and appreciate the feedback you gave us. We are sorry to hear that the DHP-601AV did not meet your expectations. Please make sure that your adapters are not plugged into any power strip or surge protector as this will negatively impact it's performance. Also, the power adapter might not function properly if it is plugged in a power outlet that is near high power consuming appliances. In the future do not hesitate to contact D-Link technical support to solve your problems. Usually an agent will be able to diagnose the problem and will guide you through the solution process. We thank you for choosing D-Link.
