5 out of 5 eggsReliable, fast link speed

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV 500Mbps Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: Easy to pair; fast data transmission rate (can't remember measurement results, but faster than my Wi-Fi link).

Cons: Can't think of any. Oh, right, it occupies a power outlet.

Other Thoughts: I am using this adapter to connect a bunch of non-Wi-Fi enabled devices via a switch to a router in another room. It does what it is supposed to, running 24/7 without a glitch.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat fast power line adapter

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV 500Mbps Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: I highly recommend this device the TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT. I was having range issues with my Wi-Fi to a guesthouse on the back of my property. The guesthouse is on the same electricity as the main house and ever thing worked out great. My Internet speed is 25mb the same as my speed directly form the router. The file transfer speed between devices is about 8.9MB so its work better than Wi-Fi also.

Cons: none for the price

2 out of 5 eggsDidn't last

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV 500Mbps Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: Worked great for the first couple weeks, averaged 25-30 mbs download speed.

Cons: After the first couple of weeks they started going out intermittently for a few minutes at a time fairly often. Have tried different electrical outlets and different computers. Still does it. Owned them for a bit less then 2 months so far.

Other Thoughts: Sent an email into TP Link customer service asking if there is a fix or if I need to just return them, I guess I'll see what they say. Only gave 2 eggs since right now it doesn't seem to be a very good product.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than USB Wireless Adapter

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV 500Mbps Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: My house happens to have newer (10 years) and relatively interference free electrical wiring so I get very close to my max 60Mbps (55Mbps) through this powerline networking method. I bought this particular kit that handles 500Mbps and it was serious overkill but for the awesome (as usual from NewEgg) pricing and free ship deal at the time. Excellent product and I suspect (actually I know) even if you do not have "great" electrical wiring the internet connection won't drop out on you or be really that much slower than your actual speed should be. Also, this seriously could not be any easier to install, it was like a 3 minute process, literally plug and play.

Cons: Same con since the inception of this whole powerline networking system, so no egg taken off - there can be some internet security issues but for normal consumers it should be negligible.

Other Thoughts: One of my neighbors has much older electrical wiring but pays for the same level of internet service (60Mbps) and he achieves about 42Mbps. Also, I purchased some more of these units and popped them in very easily (basically plugged it in and connected ethernet cord to device then waited 30 sec like all the rest of them) but I bought the 200Mbps limit ones (they are cheaper) and they work perfectly as well, giving me just about same speed, right around the 55Mbps that I get at the other locations around the house (2 middle floor, 2 upstairs, 1 basement).

2 out of 5 eggsOkay while it lasted.

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV 500Mbps Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: Seemed to get full speed through the network: I could transfer files quickly enough that I didn't bother counting, and external downloads were clearly limited by my Internet connection.

Cons: The adapters failed after 2.5 months. They no longer sync.

Other Thoughts: Given the price, it's probably worth buying, but they failed pretty quickly for me. I'm going to try another manufacturer before I buy another TP-LINK product.

3 out of 5 eggsWas hoping for much more...

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV 500Mbps Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: Easy to install and small
While it works, it works well

Cons: Speed limitations (I am only able to get around 30Mbps using this powerline adapter, while my weak wifi signal still gave me ~60Mbps) Seems to "reset" itself or drops signal every 45 mins or so on average.

Other Thoughts: I wanted for this to work so much better, and had hopes that it would stop packet loss and instability found with wifi. It is actually at times more finicky than the wifi and half the speed. It is a shame, I wanted to start getting away from having wireless repeaters spread across the house, but it looks like this won't be the thing to fix it.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat If Used Properly

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV 500Mbps Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: -Allows for wired-esque connections in locations where wireless won't reach.
-Great up/down speeds
-Multiple units can be added besides the included 2.

Cons: -Interference from appliances on the same circuit can cause major speed fluctuation (I have seen my connection go up and down from 30mbps to 5mbps within seconds).
-Must be used on same circuit for best results. If not, speed can be halved.

Other Thoughts: I love this product and continue to use it since the day I got it. However, since I am unable to plug the units in on the same circuit I do have a large speed drop. Also, I have seen the connection drop all together, despite the firmware being up to date. I am certain this is because of it being on another circuit, however I still highly recommend this product.

3 out of 5 eggsNot very reliable. Not recommend if you play Diablo hard core!!!

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV 500Mbps Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: The connection speed is very good when it connects. On average I only experience 3 disconnections per week.

Whenever it loses connection, simply unplug and plug back in, it will connect again, within 10 seconds.

Cons: If you play Diablo in hard core mode, I don't recommend this... My character died because of this... on a Saturday night... I really should have rated it 1 egg... but guess what... thanks to the tragic death of my character, now I have more time to appreciate other aspects of my life... like Starcraft II....
