Great price point for this kit.
I have the downstairs unit plugged into my Netgear C6300 AC1750 Wi-Fi DOCSIS modem/router and the other unit plugged in upstairs. About 40' through the floor.
All Powerline's are classed as either 200/500/1200Mbps but the fastest I've managed to get is about 115Mbps.
I do two tests on Powerline. One is not very real-world but I put both Powerline's on the same wall power socket and transfer a large file from one computer to another.
On this test the TP-Link AV1200 equaled my previous top speed of 410Mbps, by transferring a 1.5GB file from PC to PC in 30 seconds.
But the more realistic test is with the second Powerline adapter a floor above the first one that’s connected to the router.
In this tougher test the TP-Link AV1200 managed just over 115Mbps.
Every house is different so you may well get faster speeds than this, speeds vary quite a lot depending on multiple factors. For example, powerline speed is also heavily affected by what else is using your home writing at the time. Battery chargers and microwaves will noticeably slow Powerline speeds.
The TP-Link AV1200 Gigabit Powerline Adapter Starter Kit TL-PA8010 KIT match other rival Gigabit Powerline adapter sets in my real-world speed tests.
If your house suffers from weak Wi-Fi consider the WPA8010 Kit that includes functionality to add a new Wi-Fi hotspot in your house.
The TL-PA8010 Kit especially represents great Powerline value.
Cons: As stated in earlier review. Applications and firmware for this item is not listed in the Network Expansion list so you have to use the TL-PA8010P KIT but the software works for this model.
They just need to update the web site for this item. Not a huge deal at this time as everything works out of the box as it is.
Other Thoughts: If this is a reliable as the TL-PA8010P KIT Then I will be very happy with it.
I have been using the TL-PA8010P KIT for several months now and have never experienced any drops or disconnects.
This will take up one plugin. And in some cases may slightly impede the second power plug but not always.
