5 out of 5 eggs Works Great / Great Service 10/23/2010

This review is from: NETGEAR XET1001-100NAR Powerline Network Adapter Up to 85Mbps

Pros:

It is about 2x 4x faster than the xe102 units I Presently have. It is about the same to set up as the xe102 and a big plus is that it is inter operable. The price is very good. The use of AC wall plug is very nice since they are in every room.

Cons:

The use of the AC wiring is like wireless networking. Noise and interference make the real data rates lower than advertised. You can expect 1/2 to 1/4 rate advertised rates. This was the same for the older xe-102. So as an upgrade it has advantages. I had one out of the 6 dead out of the box. New egg is replacing it no charge w/o rma. GREAT DEAL

Other Thoughts:

There's a lot of gripping in the reviews about not advertised data rate. This is unrealistic. I am a long time Electronic Engineer, and I am amazed you can send anything significant over AC power lines give their noise levels and conditions.

They do offer a 2x to 4x upgrade from the older Homeplug 1.0 units like the xe102.

As far as the bad unit I recieved goes, I have bought a about 10 of the xe102s that were refurbs, alll of them worked, so out of 16 units I had one failure. This is not hat bad considering the discount against original list price.
