4 out of 5 eggsinitial review was "X-FED"

Pros: Works as well as my old wireless, without the drops; the firmware update was easy...a bit scary, but easy and get good reception

Cons: NEWEGG...why use FED-EX? Obviously, they cannot deliver on their promise of 3-day delivery...and then no update or reason why delivery is/was late. A REAL nonchalant attitude...so -1 egg for shipping choice...

Other Thoughts: Got Nano power-line on a discount (31.99), just to remove my PC from the wireless internet traffic at the house. Kids were complaining I was soaking up the "router juice". Now I'm off the wireless network and still ticking along at 30 Mbps. Which is about par for what Comcast is offering in my neck of the woods (forest). Item works nicely.

5 out of 5 eggsI bought 2 sets. Great product!

Pros: I used one set in a house that would not do wireless more than 15ft. After months of trying, I broke down, installed the adapters and had perfect wired connection in the time it took to walk the 30 ft from the router. Solved the wireless issue, period!!
I installed the second set in a small business to hook up a credit card machine. Again, no effort, just plug in and walk to the unit, plug in an it worked. No configuration.

Cons: None for me!

Other Thoughts: I wish I had some more unit's as I would be installing them quickly. I will be ordering more!

4 out of 5 eggsEasy to setup and use

Pros: Easy to setup and use.
Cheap
speed as advertised so far after 1 week use in a townhouse. Your mileage may vary.

Cons: No configuration needed. May be able to connect to network via outlet in the backyard with another unit from hackers.

Other Thoughts: I got it on sale with free shipping for $25 + tax. Cannot beat that price for what I am getting anywhere else.

3 out of 5 eggsMy speed has decreased

Pros: First year (Sept 2014) of usage my monitoring utility reported 90mbps-120mbps steady. Recoverable connection outages occurred once a day during heavy usage; kind of annoying to have to wait the 1 min. of time to resume what I was doing.

Cons: Now (Oct.2015) my AV500 adapters are reporting an average best 60mbps speed worst speed of 50mbps. Just a hair under my slowest wifi 54G speeds.

I'm going to retire the AV500 adapters and try to get new powerline adapters that can run faster. My need is to have the gigabit ethernet interfaces and get at least 100-200mbps speeds.

Other Thoughts: I prefer to run hardwire ethernet to my LAN Switches and Routers but some times it's not cost effective or convenient.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We are sorry to hear that you are having an issue with the TPL-406E adapters. You can try different outlets and disconnecting electronics around the units to see if you can identify a device that may be causing interference and then relocate the unit or the device. Please also ensure you disconnect chargers that aren’t actively charging devices as they can cause interference on Powerline networks. Also avoid using GFI outlets and outlets on AFCI breakers as they can also impact your Powerline network.



Regards,

Adrian

1 out of 5 eggsGARBAGE & FRAUD

Pros: NONE - no wait, it makes a good door stop.

Cons: Never worked at anything close to advertised capacity.
It regularly and with excellent consistency reduces my Internet speed from 90 Mbps down to at best 18 Mbps. Even a bad wifi connection with a cheap single band adapter only reduces it to around 40.

Other Thoughts: Simply don't waste your money.
Do your research and get something that works.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

5 out of 5 eggsSolves wifi problems

Pros: My ps4 was slow as molasses before I found this product, if you have bad wifi signal due to interference then this is the product for you. Hooked right up and worked as intended easiest thing ever for 5x the speeds I was getting compared to wifi.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Great product

2 out of 5 eggsDidn't work out for me

Pros: Cheap, easy install, good when it works.

Cons: I was using them to avoid running a cable for an ATA modem (voip) but they lose sync and require resets so I ended up having to run a cable.

Other Thoughts: Don't use if you need a reliable connection.
