4 out of 5 eggsMisleading

Pros: -Works

Cons: -Misleading to say the least.
-Reader not informed that two of these are necessary for a connection.

Other Thoughts: Gonna have to return this and get the two pack one. 40 bucks each isn't the most cost effective way of getting a stable ethernet connection.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: It works well, does what it says it does and is definitely more reliable than WiFi without having Cat 5 cables all over the house.

!!--I have it working through a surge protector and it is working just fine--!!

Cons: Not a waffle iron

Other Thoughts: I did notice some decrease in speed when going to different breakers on the other side of the breaker box

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Product!!

Pros: Easy to install, no software required. Just plug one end into where your router sits and the other where your computer is, connect the ethernet cables and BAM, your good to go.


Doesn't act spotty like a wireless connection. Allows for streaming of videos without having to worry about buffering. Mine is connected on our 2nd level of our town house, the 2nd is down in our finished basement where my desktop computer sits. Had wireless installed and couldn't even stream videos/movies to my XBOX 360 on the second level without them buffering/skipping or the words being off from the people's mouths. Installed this babies yesterday and WOOOOOO, now I have no problems, streaming works flawlessly and it's a GREAT product!!! I would highly recommend for the price. It's going to be cheaper than running cable and having to deal with fishing/re-patching of walls, etc....

Cons: Doesn't get NEAR the advertisement really. I have a 16-20 meg connection and from my desktop downstairs I'm getting about 10 megs on speed tests. Not really a CON just be aware of that.

Other Thoughts: BE AWARE: You must make sure that these are on the SAME circuit within your breaker box. What this means is if you look at the breaker both, both outlets where they should be plugged in should be either on the left or on the right of your box. If they are NOT, the product will work (at least it did for me) but the speeds are DEAD slow due to having to transmit to the power companies transformers and then come back to your home. So be sure to consider this before buying. Look at your breaker box and make sure they are both on the same side. If not, I would re-locate one of your units. That is what I had to do. No big deal just had to move stuff around a little and now they work flawlessly.

5 out of 5 eggsHome Run!!!

Pros: I will admit I was a sceptic when I first started researching this product and others like it. But it works!!
I couldn't be happier!! NO SOFTWARE TO INSTALL!!
Simply plug 1 adapter into wall socket near router or modem. Plug Ethernet Cable into adapter/router or modem. The other adapter can be plugged in anywhere that needs to be connected to the Internet. I game on my PC on the other side of the house and it's 3100 sq ft. So Wi-Fi is not always consistent.

After trying this product, up and running in 5 minutes. It's great!!!

I will update after 90 days of use and let's see if there is any change.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Purchase the Starter Kit of these like I did. You need 2 adapters for
use in other rooms, like with an Xbox 360. Laptop or Desktop PC, etc.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is a wonderful product. I have had almost a full years difficulty with connectivity of my TiVo box to the internet because the cable modem and wireless router are separated from the TiVo by 45 ft. and 2 walls. I have gone threu 3 TiVo N-adapters, an updated cable modem and a wireless repeater. In spite of everything and a couple hundred hours with TiVo tech support the connection remained poor and Netflix streaming dropped continually UNTIL...the ZyXEL PLA401v3 arrived. It has worked perfectly from the first minute I plugged them in. ZERO Netflix drops. Thank you ZyXEL.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: I bought the starter kit one day ago which worked right out of the box. Today I received a second adapter for the kit giving me 3 adapters. The adapter is even working plugged into a 1 outlet into 4 outlets plug adapter and is working. Note however the plug splitter does not have a surge protector so dont know if it will work on a power surge plug adapter

Cons: None so far. Have to see if it works on a surge protector but that is not a con as it is not supposed to be used with a surge protector
