This review is from: ZyXEL 500 Mbps Mini Powerline AV Ethernet Adapter Kit (PLA4201KIT)
Pros: Connected instantly which was very nice, plugged in the side that goes to the router first, then the end that goes to my computer. My house is a three level house, and my router is in the basement. My room is in the opposite corner of the house and on the top floor, so the maximum distance I could get and it worked flawlessly. Tested this vs a straight ethernet cord, and I got the same speeds. My antenna connector on my wifi card built into my motherboard broke or something and stopped connecting to the internet, so I was running off my phones usb hotspot for a long time. The speeds are atleast triple and my phone was a 4G LTE hotspot. My home internet isnt the fastest but I maxed out my download and upload with this so it works great and no lag.
Phones 4G LTE Hotspot:
DL: 5mb/s (Max my internet can do no matter what)
UL: 0.75mb/s (Max my internet can do no matter what)
Cons: Ethernet cords for both sides are only 2 feet long
Other Thoughts: Would definetly buy more if needed for other computers in the house. Cannot be plugged into a power strip, needs to be straight into the wall which can be a pain for some due to the short cords.READ FULL REVIEW
