TRENDnet TPL-405E 4-Port Powerline AV Adapter Up to 500Mbps
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs TPL-405E 08/16/2012

This review is from: TRENDnet TPL-405E 4-Port Powerline AV Adapter Up to 500Mbps

Pros: Nice concept of 4 gigabit ports, up to 500 mbps

Cons: Slowww connections. I bought 2 (new) of these from another online reputable vendor at a lesser price. I got these to replace 2 TPL-303E (200 mbps).

I tested them first on 2 outlets which were maybe 7-9 feet apart and gave 400 mbps based on the trendnet powerline utility. I thought wonderful! All light are solid green. Note that the powerline connection indicator will be green if connection is really good, orange or maybe red if not that good.

I then replaced my existing TPL-303E which was currently giving me DL speed of 10 mbps from a 23 mbps from my main router.

The TPL-405E gave a DL speed of 3-5 mbps. And the powerline indicator was orange.

So, I got better connections from the TPL-303E which are 50% cheaper than the TPL-405E

Other Thoughts: I will try returning the 405E if I can
