This review is from: NETGEAR XAV5001-100NAR Powerline AV 500 Adapter Up to 500Mbps
Pros: Easy to install. Easy to setup. Can you say plug and play? It's that easy.
Cons: If there is one, I haven't found it yet.
Other Thoughts: I had another unit setup in my house already. So for this one, I plugged it in the wall, connected the ethernet cable, and boom I was on the network. I didn't have to do anything else. That was it!
Some say you should use MoCa vs Powerline. I have ready where people have difficulties with the powerline. As long as you are pluggin straight into the wall and not a strip I don't think you will have a problem. Rated 500mbps which is double that of MoCa and I stream HD over this without an issue. I have watched Netflix on my TV going through my Tivo box (who say as well not to use it), I stream HD TV to another PC via my Ceton InfiniTV setup without an issue now. Could not be easier to configure and setup, plug one into your router, and then add a unit whereever that needs to tie into the network.
Pros: USB 3.0. HDMI Hookup. Etc etc. It has all the plugs and connection one could want. Except for a card reader. But it is a very nice unit. Colors were sharp and vivid on it. ASUS never ends to surprise me with the quality of there products.
Cons: None I can think of.
Other Thoughts: Was a little difficult to remove there stand so I could install it to my mount I have. Even at the angle it just didnt want to slide backout easily and made me afraid I was go to crack the case with the force I was applying. I didn't and it is mounted nicely now on my dual monitor stand.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Lots of plugs. Cables have braided sleeves over them. Long so they reach in side of large cases.
Cons: Because they are little longer means a little excess cable. So be sure to have the room for wire management. I don't see this as a reason though to score them poorly.
Other Thoughts: Couldn't be happier. This is my second power supply from them that I have used and as always it works and performs just how I want. I don't have a need for 950w but it is nice to have something that is over rated so as I add more devices I know it can handle it.READ FULL REVIEW
