This review is from: ZyXEL PLA4205KIT 500 Mbps Gigabit Powerline Wall-Plug Adapter Starter Kit
Pros: Provides solid 100Mbps connection in reasonable environment. Good wireless replacement where signals are weak or spectrum is shared by large amount of users.
Cons: It's 500Mbps "capacity". It's no more than doped up 200Mbps standard. It's a full duplex capacity, so it tops at 250Mbps one way. They should have advertised as 250, not 500. I have to say I was disappointed when I found this out.
Manual was somewhat inaccurate. It seems that I have to tap button twice instead of holding it for 2 sec to enable encrypt.
Other Thoughts: While my 130Mbps wireless is better in peak performance, I prefer hard wire over wireless as I live in highrise and wifi spectrum is very busy in most of the channels.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 1 Gbps switch. Remains cool. Good price.
Cons: Well, it's a switch, and it works... No complaints.
Other Thoughts: It's a 8 port switch at good price. One thing to note is its "VIP" port. Instead of port #1, it has port labeled "VIP". It is supposed to be prioritized for streaming devices, but I have not yet confirmed its effectiveness.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low profile, fan less design, HDMI out.
Cons: Not for hard core gaming.
Other Thoughts: It's good enough card for my HTPC/Server machine that is connected to my 70in TV. Plays movies without issues in 1080p.READ FULL REVIEW
