1 out of 5 eggs100% failure rate for 4 adapters

Pros: When it worked, it was working as expected with good throughput.

Cons: 1. Too big as it takes up too much space for the 2nd free wall outlet being used.

2. I purchased 2 kits for 4 adapters in August. 2 of them failed within 2 weeks with data light being off for good. The other 2 also failed within 3 months. I have to pay 50% of the original cost to get a replacement in the first month. It is likely to ciost as much to replace the 2 dead ones now. I think this could be a design issue or low quality components being used. Does anyone have any good experience after 6 months of normal use? By the way, I have similiar adapters working for years from different manufacturers thus my environment should not be an issue. Statistically, it is hard to justify for 100% failure rate. I think this adapter should be recalled.

Other Thoughts: Statistically, it is hard to justify for 100% failure rate with all 4 adapters I purchased. I think this adapter should be recalled.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked for a little while

Pros: Worked as advertised for a few weeks.

Cons: Like someone else said, it worked for a little while then nothing. Possible that I was trying to draw too much power through it. It got pretty hot and I'll be honest, I didn't read any directions. If it said to not use with a power strip, my bad. But from my past experiences with Rosewill, their products work well for a little while then just stop. But they're all so cheap, so I'm not too bent outta shape. Went to a retail store to pick up a pair of TP Link Powerline adapters for not much more than the Rosewills. Hopefully they'll last a little longer.

Other Thoughts: Like I said above, I didn't look for a warning saying not to use with a heavy load, so if it did say that, then this is my fault. But I was running a receiver and an HDTV on the power strip. Not a big deal. Oh, and 3 pronged power cords won't fit in the top socket on a standard outlet when this thing is plugged in. Only two prongs so no power strips.

4 out of 5 eggsOdd case design

Pros: Seems very reliable. Easy to set up. Encryption.

Cons: Makes single-socket outlets out of dual-socket outlets. When inserted into a "stack" of sockets, the adapter manages to block the socket above from being used with a grounded plug. Particularly odd is that there doesn't seem to be a reason for it, only that side of the case has a rounded edge/"roof." It's like whoever designed this has never actually seen a dual outlet.

Other Thoughts: I haven't measured bandwidth and I have neither equipment nor skills to confirm that the claimed encryption is actually there, much less secure.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy setup, great performance

Pros: Newegg rocks! They shipping out the order 2 hours after it's placed, and delivered in two days, just amazing! The Rosewill set worked perfectly for my Roku 3, day and night!!! My Roku 3 sits in a bedroom two walls away from the router and the connection hasn't been perfect. Recently I've wasted lots of time waiting for the "buffering". Tried both 2.4G and 5G, same results. With the Rosewill powerline adapters the connection is now fast and reliable, as smooth as playing local media. Setup is nothing, just plug and play. Cannot be happier! Hope it lasts.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsThis is like a stone

Pros: plug and play

Cons: It just works for a short while, then Data light off and no more connection, no matter how you reset it. You have to leave it for a day or so, then plug-in and work another short while. I hope I can return it.
I had very good experience with Rosewill products, so this time bought this without any hesitation. Unfortunately, it's so bad, totally unusable. I have another set of similar adapters and know how it supposed to work.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great in my double wide. Faster than Wifi

Pros: Easy to install. Faster than Wifi. Price. Pass-through.

Cons: Hard to give a con because these a such a great price. Only 2 I could think of is that the case is big and takes up almost both plugs. Not encrypted out of the box.

Other Thoughts: Someone else mention that they get hot? I did not see this with the ones I got. I like these so much that I bought another pair the next day.

5 out of 5 eggsNetworking made simple

Pros: The kit just worked and I was able to run networking to downstairs without any issues. Very simple to use and works really well. Supports video streaming using Roku and works much better than wireless. Very stable, in over 6 months of use it did not lost connection even one time. It is as fast as 100BT Ethernet and adds very little latency

Cons: The unit is a little too large. It blocks upper outlet in the dual wall outlet so 3 prong plug is no longer fits. 2 prong plug will fit though.

Other Thoughts: I wonder why I did not buy this earlier. The networking over power line is the future. Builder's charge arm and leg for running CAT6 in the house. After the house is built it is a huge pain to run Ethernet cable. These little devices are the thing - plug one in each room and you have your house networked in no time.
Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsMuch better than wireless

Pros: A Newegg Eggxpert review for the "Rosewill RPLC-200PKIT": I was anxious to re-try this technology. I had tried similar products years ago and they failed miserably. First, I was pleasantly surprised by the super easy setup. My modem/router, an Actiontec Q1000 (Century Link), coexists nicely in a basement cupboard sharing a power outlet with Remote Power Line Connector (RPLC) #1. The included 5 foot ethernet cable was 4 foot longer than it needed to be. DON'T FORGET to press the "Reset/Security" button where the ethernet cable plugs in to turn on encryption.

It took me longer to walk up 2 flights of stairs than it took to setup the second RPLC. I use my laptop in a spare bedroom where in can sneak to when I can't sleep. I also use that room to charge all our small devices - phones, tablets, RC cars. The only reason I mention this is that there was only one outlet available for RPLC #2 at it would need a much longer ethernet cable. I used a 15 foot spare. Again in the time it took to relocate a power strip (~30 seconds), my Windows 7 Home had already located and installed the proper drivers. From the laptop I turned off the router's wireless service, then the laptop's wireless. That was 12 days ago and it's been working flawlessly since.

Cons: The units are large, too large if you need to plug 3-prong power cord into the second outlet, I didn't so no dings.

Other Thoughts: I didn't get the transfer rates others reported, but the RPLC is at least a 30% improvement over my wireless. But most importantly, it doesn't "drop signal."
RPLC - 3.8 MB/sec up & down, large files. Wireless 2.9
RPLC - 3.5 MB/sec up & down, small files. Wireless 2.4
Newegg has an error on their "Rosewill High Performance Powerline Adapter" chart. The RPLC-200KIT and RPLC-200PKIT allow speeds up to 200Mbps/sec not 500Mbps, as the 200KIT and 200PKIT have 10/100baseT connections.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty decent powerline adapters

Pros: Very easy to install and connect, basically just plug them both in, make two Ethernet connections at each end and you're connected.

Achieved decent connection speeds overall (see "Other thoughts" below.)

Connection was stable and reliable, no disconnects noted during lengthy gaming and data-transfer sessions.

128-bit encryption prevents eavesdropping by other powerline adapters.

Power pass-through allows use of the outlet by other devices, this is a big plus since AC power outlets in the vicinity of PC equipment can become scarce.

Includes two Cat 5e cables, everything is included to get connected immediately.

Status and activity LEDs are not overly bright.

Power-saving mode automatically enables when no data has been detected for a period of time.

Units run relatively cool, even after extended usage they were warm but not uncomfortable to hold.

Cons: The units are nearly HUGE in comparison to several other makes/models. They do not blend in at all and are visually quite obvious.

The AC power pass-through is a great feature, but the housing is so large it nearly blocks the other AC outlet above it, larger plugs may have a difficult time clearing.

The LAN port is only 10/100 Fast Ethernet, so individual connection speeds above 100Mbps are not possible. The 200Mbps rating is the maximum theoretical speed of ALL such devices together on the same power circuit, not each individual pairing. This is the same concept for all powerline adapters, not only this one.

Out-of-the box, the default connection between these units is NOT encrypted! You must force encryption by activating it on one device, then connecting the other device(s) to the power circuit within 2 minutes. Users should NOT run these un-encrypted, as any other compatible device on a nearby power circuit could potentially intercept any and all network traffic.

Other Thoughts: I ran a comparison test between these devices and a 300Mbps WiFi router, using all the same hardware at each end, only the connection differs between the two. The test was conducted in the far-upstairs bedroom of a two-story home, with the WiFi router being located in the basement.:

1.23GB .avi video test file

(all speeds are averaged)

Rosewill RPLC-200PKIT
--------------------------------
DL: 4.55MBps
UL: 4.4MBps

300Mbps WiFi
--------------------
DL: 2.4MBps
UL: 2.25MBps

As you can see, the Rosewill powerline adapter did quite well against WiFi when the radio connection was strained by distance and intervening floors. This is where powerline adapters begin to shine, right where WiFi leaves off due to proximity, blockage, interference, etc.

If you can run Cat 5e or Cat 6 Ethernet cable, you should do so, always, but in lieu of this, the powerline adapter can be a viable, quick and reasonably-secure connectivity solution as well. Especially if the need is temporary, these devices can be utilized very well.

If it were not for their overly large size and lack of default encryption, I would have considered giving them a 5-Egger, which is something I rarely do.

For clarity I will state once again: When using this or any other powerline or WiFi connection, be sure the encryption is ENABLED! Also ensure the encryption is 128-bit or higher, anything less is too vulnerable to brute-force cracking these days.
