5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

This review is from: ZyXEL PLA4211 Mini Powerline Pass-Thru Ethernet Adapter Up to 500Mbps

Pros: Plug-N-Play
Fast connection speed
No lag, skips or hops sharing video over network with Media Center.

Cons: A tad bulky, makes the plug above it useless. Hard to hide behind furniture if that is your plan. But if you don't need to hide it behind a dresser, it is great!

Other Thoughts: Last week I purchased the starter kit that included two of these. One hooked up to my router, one all the way on the other side of the house in my living room. They worked great. So much faster than wireless. Not dropping off like a small number of reviewers experience. Once I was convinced it would work, I ordered this one so I could add another computer to the electrical wired network. Plugged it in, it instantly found the others. Same great connection and speeds. Could not be happier...unless they made a thinner model that leave you access to the plug above it. These might be the mini version, but they are hard to conceal behind furniture that would normally be flat against the wall, such as a dresser. Other than that they are perfect. Very glad I won't be trying to run Cat5e through the small space above my vaulted ceilings!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

This review is from: ZyXEL PLA4211 Mini Powerline Pass-Thru Ethernet Adapter Up to 500Mbps

Pros: Connected right away to a ZyXEL PLA4231 Powerline Wireless N Extender.

Cons: It's a bit bulky, and as a result the cabinet it sits behind can't fit as closely to the wall.
