5 out of 5 eggsRosewill Powerline adapter

Pros: Works flawlessly just plug-and-play! It took me about 5 minutes to get them working but I was setting up security so it was probably just me too slow. I get my full 6Mbps connection 5 rooms away! About 100 feet. and hasn't lost connection yet after 2 weeks. and also get about 80Mbps connection with one going to my PFSense box (NAS Connected through Gigabit to PFSense box) Through to my NAS. Will update after having longer time with the adapters.

Cons: NOTHING YET!

1 out of 5 eggsInternet browsing only- unreliable and low-quality.

Pros: Light, cheap, easy solution, nice boxing, good colors.

Cons: Only good enough for internet browsing. Drastically reduces speed, is unreliable, drops calls constantly, no doubt is a failure at gaming.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy. There are better options.

4 out of 5 eggsWork great

Pros: Just installed the first set I bought a few weeks ago. Boy what a difference. I've always had problems with our WiFi in our house. I have tried modifying antennas, moving routers, and have never had complete success. These things work great! No more lost signals or “buffering” during Netflix. You don’t need a computer or any operating system to use these, they just plug in and work. I just ordered a second pair today for the downstairs.

Cons: The only con (and it cost them one egg) is they cover enough of the other plug connection in the duplex outlet to render it almost useless. you can't use anything with a grounded plug.

Other Thoughts: To bad the engineers that designed this didn't have a USA duplex outlet in front of them when they did the design..

2 out of 5 eggsOnly as good as wifi

Pros: Cheap, with pass-through socket, easy to install.

Cons: Slow speed
Poor design
Only one Ethernet connection

Other Thoughts: Bad design as it occupy two sockets of a wall outlet, although it has a pass-through socket, that nullify its advantage. The advertise speed is up to 200Mbps, and although I don't believe it even before I bought this product as its hardware is only capable of up to 100 Mbps max, I was still expecting I could still get closer to 50 Mbps. But even with that, I was wrong. I can only get 11-19 Mbps. My Wifi is even better at a closer range! This is totally a waste of money. Even at this price range, it's not worth the money.

5 out of 5 eggsMuch better than wifi.

Pros: Much better than wifi. Went from 200-400 KBps on wifi to 3-4 MBps through powerline adapter/ethernet. Latency went down slightly as well and so far my latency hasn't been fluctuating as much as it did on wifi. It pretty much stays at a constant 80ms in wow.

MUCH cheaper than typical wireless/network equipment.

Cons: The only way to use the second wall plug is to use a cord that doesn't have the ground prong under it because this thing will get in the way. It wasn't a problem for me but I can see how it could be problematic in some situations.

Other Thoughts: HOW HAVE I NEVER HEARD OF THIS?

4 out of 5 eggsNow I'm fast, finally

Pros: Went from about 15Mbps up/15Mbps down on wireless to close to my cap of 50Mbps up/50Mbps down. It's amazing, now I can confidently download anything, like large games, insanely fast, while browsing the internet as well. Seems stable, I've been playing Counter Strike and a few other shooters, and it's never been better.

It's got a pass-through so you don't lose an outlet, but it's kind of counter-intuitive. (See cons.)

Cons: This goes without saying, but it's huge. Unfortunately, the top of it will block the grounding prong on the outlet above it, which looks like it could've been avoided if it was designed with different ergonomics. This prevented me from putting my power strip with my computer, monitor, stereo, and a few other things into the wall, and instead I have to use the pass-through for it. While I'm sure I will be fine, and it probably is since I've been on the computer for a few hours now, it's just a bit worrying and seems like it could've been avoided.

Other Thoughts: I maxed out my speed. Now I'm actually making use of my absurd internet bill.

But, I had to sacrifice a few wall outlets. (And, well, in my room, the outlets are in the weirdest places.)

Glad this went on sale. I may have to pick up another and hook up every other thing in the house.

4 out of 5 eggsso far so good

Pros: Tested speeds on initial plugin; 45Mbps down and 26Mbps up on Eatel Fiber...basically my maximum speed for my service. No qualms with that.

Cons: Units do sorta block other plugin space; there's some adjustments that have to be made but not a deal breaker.

2 out of 5 eggsSluggish Upload Speed

Pros: It connects fast an easy. It's very simple to use.

Cons: I connected to Speedtest to conduct a test, and the download speed was about 13 Mb, but the upload was only about .75Mb. On a direct wire connection or even the ipad, I was getting an upload of 4Mb.

I'm unsure why it doesn't work well in that direction.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Fine

Pros: Worked fine out of the box. Use it to extend my network to my Roku which is out of wireless range. I've not had an issue as far as I am aware. Want another set.

Cons: I have none that I can definitively assign to this device. When accessing streaming media across the web, there are a lot of potential places for bottlenecks. So I have seen a few drops/buffering episodes, but I think the issue was somewhere else.

Other Thoughts: This does exactly what I wanted it to do. I can pretty much use my Roku with no awareness of bandwidth issues - just like regular cable, which we would like to replace with Internet streaming video.
