Pros: Very reasonable price, single slot, doesn't require power connector. Can handle most games at 1080p at Medium settings.
Cons: Died after 1 year and 2 weeks. Has a 2 year warranty from Powercolor, but I'm still waiting on an RMA number (5 working days so far). That seems too long to have to wait. I'm posting this mostly in the hope Powercolor will notice and follow up.
Other Thoughts: Card is dead, waiting on RMA number. Will update review if and when the RMA is completed.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: They are affordable.
Cons: I bought two of these and a AC1200 D-Link router to upgrade my wifi. The two desktops average 5MB/s for file transfers. That's about 40Mbps, or about 5% of what it should be. There are no other 5Ghz signals. The router is perhaps 20 feet away in another room.
Other Thoughts: Router is the D-Link DIR-850L
I bought these in November before the bluetooth plug reversal was common knowledge. That was a pain to figure out.
This review is from: TRENDnet TPL-308E2K Powerline AV200 Nano Adapter Kit, Up to 200Mbps
Pros: Great Black Friday price. Allows me to use my ethernet capable printer anywhere in the house.
Cons: They emit an audible noise. It's a high-pitched electrical squeal that's quite annoying. I can hear it with my musically abused ears from about 6 feet away. Didn't expect that.
They may say 200mb/s, but know that this is false. No sugarcoating, they are not theoretically capable of more than 100, and list 80 as a perfect connection. My testing concluded 30.4mb/s under ideal conditions. See other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: I returned a set of more expensive "500mb/s" adapters to a local store when they performed at 38mb/s. 7% advertised performance is criminal. These TRENDnets are nearly as fast for 1/3 the price (at the time). I can deal with that. The more expensive units didn't make any noise however.READ FULL REVIEW
