4 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy, Would Use Again

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

Pros: This unit is great, setup literally took minutes; plug and play in the true sense. I have no idea what you'd need a utility software for to use this unit. Does exactly what it says on the box; You get two ethernet jacks that share a connection over your house's power hookups, and that's what they do.

Cons: The wife who uses this has said it very occasionally drops her connection while web surfing and emailing, but she never has issues with it during heavy use (Netflix, games, file transfers) so I'm chalking it up to noise on the power lines causing it to lose it's "handshake".

Other Thoughts: We used this to get ethernet to the bedroom that's square above the garage in our duplex. Since we rent, drilling is out of the question, and we didn't want an unsightly ethernet line running around the hallways, so this seemed a perfect match. The wife doesn't ever notice the 500 mbps speed limit she's under, and only has occasional and momentary drops in the connection. All in all, we're very happy with the product and would buy it again.

1 out of 5 eggsActual sped is 230-270

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

Pros: N/A

Cons: Very disappointed with this purchase. As per box specifications, this should provide 500 mbps speed. But actual speed is between 230-270. Even when the wiring distance was 10 feet. I tried all the power socket in the house. I have Internet connection with 75/75 mbps speed. I called Newegg and I was told to contact vendor.
I cannot return either use. Really a waste of money.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked great while it lasted

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

Pros: -Stable connection for about 3 months but now it gives out and doesn't sync properly.

Cons: -Syncing issues after 3 months.
-Don't expect anywhere near 500 mbps

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this product since this is actually a prevalent problem for many people who had purchased this product..

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Data Throughput

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

Pros: Easy to set up. No configuration necessary - just hit a button to pair two or more.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Great for streaming media vs. WiFi. I have four kids who have AppleTVs, ROKUS, PlayStations, Xboxes etc that are bandwidth hogs. Take those off WiFi and put them on Ethernet and use these guys. Those who have poor throughput it's due to the electrical wiring - NOT THESE DEVICES...

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome product and great deal

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

Pros: Plug and Play. Great range. Worked out of the box.

Cons: The are a bit bulky but no more than other adapters.

Other Thoughts: Bought the pair on a great sale price, almost half off. These worked right out of the box no set up required other than plugging them into the wall and one into the router. I use the pair to bridge 2 wireless routers, one as the main router and the other as an extra wireless port and hub. Had them for almost a year now and no problems. Also I moved while owning them and they worked in both different homes no problems. At the first home I used the pair to bridge a wired connection to my entertainment center. Used the endpoint with a hub to network my Xbox, PS3, and BluRay player. Each performed with no issue including online gaming and streaming Netflix. I currently have one of them now in my outside workshed and it gets very hot outside. Still no problems with either unit. Just rock solid all around. I'm actually looking to buy another pair now and decided to post this review.

The only feature I haven't tried is the secure link, but according to the included instruction booklet it's pretty simple, just a few button clicks on the units.

1 out of 5 eggsdisconnects randomly

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

Pros: Ethernet over powerline is a great idea when running cable is not an option.

Cons: Randomly disconnects and keeps doing that every time i'm online or connecting to my lab.
it is annoying, fortunately i have a wireless adapter and i keep switching between wireless and wired through powerline adapter.

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't work for me out of the box

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

Pros: None I discovered

Cons: Unit A and Unit B would never link even when placed in outlets adjacent to each other. Pairing process did not work.

Other Thoughts: Firmware upgrade did not help. Included instructions and software did not help. Returned under RMA. Cost to me $4.50 restocking and $6.50 shipping. $11 for $29 item. First real bummer I have experienced from NewEgg after many years of using NE as source of computer stuff.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good!

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

Pros: Easy setup, Fast speeds

Cons: Nothing to report after a week of ownership.

Other Thoughts: Super simple setup. I unboxed them, connected them directly to 2 wall outlets in the same room for setup. Simply pushed the pair button and about 3 minutes later they are talking to each other. I then connected one to the router with the supplied ethernet cable and moved the other one to a room on the other end of the house and connected it to the Xbox One. Gave them about 2 minutes and verified they were still talking to each other. Fired up the Xbox and did a connection test. I was receiving about 15mb of my 18mb uverse connection. Zero packet loss. Latency was around 70ms. Much better than wireless N from my poor uverse modem. Streaming stuttered a bit the first night but since has been flawless. This might have just been the system getting used to itself. This is in an older house with wiring that doesn't even have the grounding plug. I was skeptical on how well it would work in this environment but its been great thus far. In the future I may add more or maybe add one with more ports. If your on the fence give it a try. I wish I would have done this sooner.

1 out of 5 eggsConstant disconnects

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

Pros: Easy to set up, when it works it's great.

Cons: Random but frequent disconnects for no reason.

Other Thoughts: I've had these units for a bit over a week, I bought 2 pairs. It was easy to set them up to be on the same network, for the first day they worked reliably. After the 2nd day, I get random disconnects in both computers they're connected to, it is not noise related since when the disconnects have happened there's nothing in the house that's running except the PC, adapters and the router. I've swapped the units between locations, reset them, re-sync'd/paired them, same random disconnects. I've tried the firmware reflash, same issues. Wireless may have been slower but at least it was stable, unlike these units.
