4 out of 5 eggsBetter than WiFi bridges

Pros: I upgraded to a 60mbps down and 5mbps up connection, to get internet outside and to a nearby camper I tried to use my house wifi, but it wasn't within reach. With a wifi extender, I was able to get the internet there, but very shakily and in the 9mbps range and with constant cut-offs even with four bars.

Then I remembered about powerline kits. I, of course, had power going to the camper, so I hooked this bad boy up and get 30/5mbps. Enough to fully take advantage of my improved upload from there (which was more important to me than the download)

Cons: 30 is still half of 60. I'd say the camper is about 50 feet away from the house, but has to go through probably 200-300 feet of electrical wiring and make a jump at the fuse box so it's still a pretty large distance... but never the less, it's a little disappointing that it's still no where near my max speed (or even 1/10th of the rate 500mbps maximum)

Other Thoughts: There seems to be some confusion on the 500mbps and the 100mbps maximum of the ethernet port... The 500mbps is the total theoretical maximum of the network between ALL connected adapters and you can have a total of 8.

What this means is that while no two computers would be able to connect beyond 100mbps (limit of standard cat5 connectors), you may be sharing an internet connection A with computer B, while computer C is streaming from mass storage device D, in those cases you'd be able to take more advantage of the 500mbps maximum.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Value

Pros: The instructions were easy to follow and each adapter came with a LAN line to connect. In my case, I connected an adapter to my wireless router and plugged another adapter in my son's room (connected it to my kids' 360) and yet another adapter in my daughter's bedroom so her computer will have internet. Everything works just fine. For what I paid, I am getting better than what I expected and better than the USB WiFi I had hooked up to my daughters puter, which by the way, was a long shot on reception any way. My house isn't huge, so I was well within what I call "Line" limits. It is a great way of getting internet to every room in the house (although I haven't actually tried it) without running lan lines all over the place, or having USB WiFi or having to by WiFi cards.

Cons: I had my doubts about this type of technology and was willing to lose the money if it was a rip-off, but to be honest, I can't think of any cons. Oh, how about: It isn't free?

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 sets (2 in each set) which will sync to each other so you do not have to have a direct connection to the router for each set. 1 Adapter is connected to the router and the other 3 are connected to user devices. I haven't checked the impact if 3 devices are online at the same time, however.

4 out of 5 eggsEggcellent

Pros: Easy and fast setup. Has made a 100% improvement in using our bluray players and smart TV's streaming Netflix and HuluPlus apps.

Cons: Nothing so far except that the kit included Cat5 and not Cat5e cords. If utilizing a gigabyte network, Cat5e cable could unleash the full potential of these powerline adapters.

Other Thoughts: Purchased 2 kits on sale for the price of 1 regular priced kit, thanks NewEgg! These kits will alleviate some potential wifi congestion in my house hold. I connected another wireless router on opposite side of home, bridging my primary wireless router with a secondary wireless router, using the powerline network adapter kit. Had it all set up in about 15 minutes.

4 out of 5 eggsPlug and LAN

Pros: This works very well. Installation was unpack, plug into wall socket, connect PC LAN port to one, ATT modem to other, and you are ready to surf. No software or setup required. Plug & surf.
Worked so well I promptly ordered another pair, and connected a wifi router to one of them.

Cons: Internet connectivity has dropped a few times. connectivity recovers after a short period, or by unplugging the unit from the wall socket briefly waiting and plugging it back in.

Other Thoughts: 2300 ft2 4br 2 story single fam home. ATT Uverse coax. Connected desktop Living Room Media PC to internet modem (which is in the garage) and ran speed test. Subsequently connected to modem via TP-LINK units. Ran speed test again. Results were essentially identical. wifi was convenient, but too slow to stream HD content.

5 out of 5 eggs100mb ethernet port

Pros: this price ($45) is good for this type of device, even if the ports max at 100mb.

Cons: JUST WANT TO POINT OUT. even though they say 500mb, the ports on the units are only 100mb. so even if you could somehow get to 500mb between devices, it would be pointless since the port would cap it at 100mb from the TP-Link to your computer/device.

it looks like the next best model, TL-PA511KIT has 1000mb (gigabit) ports. which would allow you to actually reach the claimed 500mb throughput, though that number might be hard to reach.

Other Thoughts: i put 5 stars, because i am not saying this product doesnt work or is bad. i am just letting people know it is not really a 500mb device.

if you are streaming 1080p, might be worth upgrading to the better model. i play xbox live/PSN without any problems with a similar model that also has 100mb ports.

1 out of 5 eggsNot really 500Mbps

Pros: * Does what it says
* Not a hassle to setup

Cons: Not really 500Mbps. The ethernet port is 10/100M which means the real speed of this thing can only be upto 100Mbps. This thing is as good as the next 100Mbps adapter for ton of less money.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Our devices communicate from one Power-line to another Power-line with a theoretical max speed of 500 Mbps - this happens inside the circut. They communicate with each other, send Discover protocols, and other data at 500 Mbps given the particular device. So 500Mbps power-line speed is the BACKBONE speed.

Think about it, you have up to 4 TL-PA411 units in one circuit, and they will share 500Mbps BACKBONE speed.
At such scenario, 10/100Mbps Ethernet port won't be the bottleneck of the power-line network.

We appreciate you trying out the product and glad to see that you were able to set them up easily.

If you need further information, please feel free to contact me.

5 out of 5 eggshighly recommended

Pros: plug-and-play, never looked at the manual, just pluged them in connected and off to the races. Speed test results are basically the sames through these units as when directly connected to the router.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: worked so well I bought another pair and relegated my -n router to back-up role

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing product

Pros: Extremely easy to install. This thing is a miracle. I love it and now wonder why i didnt buy these things before. The connection speed is equal to if not greater than that of WiFi.

Cons: Your house needs to have power outlets that arent from the 1950's, not really a CON. It may be subject to power surges.

Other Thoughts: The instructions stat that it is not recommended to plug these into a power surge because surge protectors can filter some of the signal. It must be plugged straight into the wall. If for some reason it does get fried, I have mine covered with warranty
