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.
