Cons: Specs say Windows 7 or 8, but not 10.

This review is from: TRENDnet TPL-406E2K Powerline AV500 Nano Adapter Kit, up to 500 Mbps
Pros: Plug it in, it works. No fuss, no software installation needed for routine setups.
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: I tested this in my house, and compared short and long wiring paths. On a 20 mbps DSL line, I measured 17 mbps directly at the DSL modem, 16.8 mbps via the Powerline using a fairly short wiring path (about 30 feet, on two circuits, so there were two breakers in the path), and 15.4 mbps via the Powerline over the longest path (about 100 feet of wiring, including two power panels and three breakers.)
No complaints at all. This is my first experience with this kind of ethernet-over-power line tech, and I was very pleasantly surprised at how well it works.
Pros: It's an ok display, but ...
Cons: This monitor can't be used with a monitor arm, or any other kind of mount, because it does not have any VESA mounting holes. Yes, you can detach the stand, but that's only for shipping.
This is a common shortcoming of many Dell monitors, so be careful when ordering.
Why Dell decided to ignore a simple industry standard is a mystery.
