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....

1 out of 5 eggsTP-Link is Trash

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

Pros: It's shiny

Cons: It's TP-Link...

Unit randomly quits working and needs to be power cycled.

Support doesn't speak English

Support wont replace or assist in resolving the issues

Updates or resetting sleep mode doesn't resolve the issue

Other Thoughts: DONT BUY TP-LINK PRODUCTS! You get what you pay for. In the case of TP-Link, you get a huge head ache.

4 out of 5 eggsmeh ok

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

Pros: Works great! About 300 to 500 feet range with my setup and I have no issues getting about 85Mbit transfers.

Cons: 100Mbit connection only....

Other Thoughts: So...instead of wasting your money on this like I did. Read before you purchase. Make sure you are getting Gbit connections not 100Mb. That negates the 500Mb possibilities. There is nothing wrong with this product. It works as it should but I should have bought the 1Gbit connector version. I hope this helps! Cheers

3 out of 5 eggsconvenient but sloooow speed

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

Pros: Very easy setup and units are small

Cons: Sloooooow

Other Thoughts: I bought this so i could stream video across my home network. The setup was extremely easy but I was a little disappointed that I only received 9 mbps, perhaps it was my house since others achieved a higher speed.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for checking out our Power-lines.

We are sorry to see that you have not been able to acheive the speed that you are looking for.

You are correct as the speeds can varry and may depend on severl factors like the quality of the circuit, distance, and electrical interference.

One thing we suggest is to survey the outlets and see if there may be anything on the same circuit that could be drawing lots of power or causing some interference.

Unplugging these and running speed tests again can help determine if this piece of electronics is causing the issue.

Also, if the distance between the two Power-lines are too far then you will find that you may loose some speed.

If you have any questions or concerns then you can feel free to contact our 24 hour technical support, or you may contact me directly at howard.he@tp-link.com.


Best Regards!

3 out of 5 eggsInexpensive way to get into powerline

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

Pros: These units were very inexpensive and easy to setup. These are very small and can fit behind your furniture. Its definitely better for constant connection than a corner/blocked weak wifi connection.

It worked where the Zyxels I have were interfered by a connection.

Cons: They are not as fast as Zyxels that are rated for the same speed. My current Zyxels have a gigabit port and the speedtests are 300% higher. This is due to the ethernet port being rated only at 10/100M. I used the same electrical outlet.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks

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

Pros: Plugged both sides in and worked right off the bat. Has better ping then wireless in my house. I live next to a school so i get a lot of wireless interference....

Cons: The house was built in 1960. So this is probably why i cannot reach max speed. I have 100 Mbps internet service and i only hit 40 Mbps with this device.

Other Thoughts: As someone else pointed out, the polarity can effect the speed quality. I was getting 29 Mbps and then flipped one of the devices and that brought it up to 40 Mbps.
