Works well but order 2 of these, or a powerline kit, if you don't have an existing powerline setup in place. 02/19/2014
This review is from: TRENDnet TPL-401E Powerline 500 AV Adapter Up to 500Mbps
I got this on a Shell Shocker for $20 expecting that I was getting an amazing deal for a powerline 'kit' with 2 units. What I got was a pretty good deal for one unit. As other reviewers have mentioned, make sure you get 2 of these if you don't already have existing powerline adapters on your network. I was able to get this one unit to easily work with my 2 Actiontec PWR500s. Now I have one PWR500 plugged into the router, one plugged into the desktop and the TPL-401E plugged into the Xbox. All in all I am glad that I don't have to buy another one at full price to get this unit to work.
Well it might be my fault for not double-checking the package contents before purchasing, but I really don't understand selling these individually - especially for $55 full price for one unit. You can get a decent kit with 2 units (maybe not 500mbps theoretical) for $40-50.
