5 out of 5 eggsFast & easy to set up

Pros: Did not work in my condo, so I gave the units to a friend who lives in single-family home where they have been providing reliable and blazing performance. Easy set up. They lost sync with each other only once in the past eight months. Unplugged and re-plugged in the units; problem solved.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsFits my needs perfectly

Pros: Got it for a reasonable price, compact and I can plug it in upside down. I am able to stream 1080p media through it just fine (though normally just use Netflix)

Cons: I did have to experiment with where to place the adapters. One had a non-negotiable placement behind the media PC. The other was supposed to go in an unobtrusive spot in my office. They couldn't connect well. I ended up having to try several outlets around the house before I got a really good connection. Now I have a cat5 wire running to one of them that isn't where I would like, but everything runs great.

1 out of 5 eggsLasted all of 5 minutes

Pros: Seemed like a good price for the advertised features.

Cons: One of the pair lasted about 30 seconds before powering down.

Other Thoughts: Plugged the two units in and they auto-synced, thought everything was up and running. About 30 seconds later, lost network connection: one of the units had no lights. Unplugged everything, let it sit 2 min and tried again. Same unit powered down within 30 seconds. Now it won't power up at all. Unfortunately beyond the return timeframe.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid, fast Powerline AV2 product - recommended

Pros: These were easy to install. My Tivo Roamio has an internal antenna and sits near the floor, and the wireless just wasn't punching through the walls to reach the WiFi router. I was getting 3 mbps or so with WiFi, slower than the cable modem.

I am looking at the TrendNet PowerPack Utility, and it is showing that I am getting 94 Mbps now to the Tivo over the Powerline adapters. Now I can order a Amzn Instant movie and start watching it, and the streaming will go faster than the movie (the Tivo Roamio caches Amzn Instant purchases - great for fast forward/rewind). Before I would have to decide on a movie in the morning because it took hours to trickle over the WiFi link.

The TrendNet PowerPacket Utility is easy to navigate, and much more helpful and powerful than I expected in terms of being able to manage and configure the network.

I have had zero problems in the last 4 months. Appears rock solid.

I thought the lights were helpful when I installed the devices, although I no longer quite remember what they indicate, other than flickering is network activity.

Anyone who can fumble their way through installing a Wi-Fi router should be able to handle this install.

Cons: You may want to consider models with a 4 port hub on the remote end, but I didn't need that this time.

Other Thoughts: These really solved my network problem. I feel obligated to write a review because the product deserves a higher egg score.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little boost of reliability

Pros: Very simple and quick to setup and run. Great for replacing my failing WiFi with no visible lines.

Cons: Defanatly should have gotten the version with power passthough. didn't think the loss of two plugs would be that great, but now I'm realizing otherwise.

Other Thoughts: Not good crossing 2 breaker boxs. Having issues staying connected in the detached garage. Already knew it'd be a problem, just thought I'd try, and suprised it works at all.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing performance

Pros: Small footprint, easy to set up if you are not adding them to an existing powerline network

Cons: Disappointing performance. Not appreciably faster then the 200Mbps adapters I was replacing and in one case slower! (Performance measured by TRENDnet's own speed utility.) Do yourself a favor and buy their 200Mbps devices and save $$. Also TRENDnet's tech support is a bad joke. Spent 45 minutes talking to a woman in India who was not familiar with the products, spoke marginal English, couldn't comprehend my problem with syncing, and was confused with different model numbers. Finally she said she would have her supervisor call me within 24 hours. That was 4 days ago and still no call. My suggestion is that if you need tech support with a TRENDnet product, don't bother to call. Just return the device.

Other Thoughts: If you are trying to add these to an existing PL network, sync the new devices to the old ones and not the other way around.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 10 minutes

Pros: Easy to set up and seemed to work well for all of 10 minutes; one of the adapters suddenly stopped working after that. I spent 40 minutes on the phone with TRENDnet tech support, but nothing could be done.

Cons: Quality control seems lacking. I've used powerline adapters from other companies for years with zero issues.

Other Thoughts: I was pretty excited to try these out, but the poor quality rained on that parade. I am ordering another set, but quite hesitant about their longevity at this point...

1 out of 5 eggsGreat speed but...

Pros: Setup is an easy step. I used two 1Gigbit NIC card connect to ends and use iperf to test speed. The uplink/downlink can reach 10MBytes/s between living room and bedroom in my apartment home. This is much better than Linksys PLEK500 I had before. PLEK500 only reach 1MBytes/s.

Cons: After 3 days use, one of adapter was dead. LED light was off. No clue what caused it.

Other Thoughts: I will stick to use my 802.11 ac wifi adapter. Although my 802.11 ac can reach 15Mbytes/s, I want the low latency of power line adapter. I hope Trendnet can build a more solid one. I will definitely buy it again.
