Netgear XAVB5221-100PAS AV500 1-Port Essentials Edition Powerline Kit, up to 500Mbps
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Small but efficient for the purpose it was intended to fulfill 07/05/2015

This review is from: Netgear XAVB5221-100PAS AV500 1-Port Essentials Edition Powerline Kit, up to 500Mbps

Pros: This is a super small unit, almost micro for the size of most Powerline adapters.

Light weight so this allows for maximum snug fit when plugged into an outlet that is sideways.

The LEDs on this show a connection has been made, making it easy for someone with little to no technical skills for home networking to be made easy. The setup takes a few minute right out of the box.

The two 6 feet cables are included, so this is a complete kit with cables to get you up and running right from the start.

The range was successful for testing purposes. I had this in a few different locations in my home and had an average of 80-88MBPS.

Cons: No possible to ever get 500Mbps as listed on the product as this is only a 100Mbps.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a solid product if you can get past the marketing specs of 500Mbps.

A power plug pass through would be an awesome option for an upgrade to the next model for this Powerline.

TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 500Mbps
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Super small but massive performance! 06/10/2015

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 500Mbps

Pros: This has got to be the smallest powerline I have ever used. Small compact form factor.

The wall plugs are very light so that it does not matter what direction the wall outlet is positioned, the device will not fall out of the wall outlet and cause a loss of connection.

The one button security is a great option and allows for security without the extensive interface to set the security of the devices.

This powerline delivered a solid and steady stream for HD content. I had a laptop on this powerline streaming HD video at 1080P and had zero lag of buffering.

I know the distance says 900ft, but I had this successfully running at a very high speed in the garage. Only a very slight drop in the speed between the house and the garage compared to being tested in the house alone.

Cons: I have no cons to report at this time. The device worked on the first try.

Other Thoughts: The fact of the power in the house being used as a way to extend the network with a hardwire connection fascinates me. I love these devices and feel they are a very good simple easy to use device for those that are afraid to do at home networking.

Belkin Thunderbolt 2 Express Dock HD with 1-Meter Thunderbolt Data Transfer Cable, Designed for Thunderbolt 2 Technology with 4K Resolution (F4U085tt)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The design is nice and sleek. - Nice Aluminum feel that is consistent with Apple devices.

Fits nice on the desk with the rubber feet keeping the device in one spot when being used.

The ports are properly spaced apart so that you can grasp the end of the cables easily and not pull from the cable to remove the device you choose.

This Dock acts as a great one stop hub. You can have multiple USB 3.0 devices or drives plugged in and transfer or use them as needed. This is more of a mac feature and not a PC feature.

Has all the major ports for a high end device.

Cons: The 4K display is a bit deceiving as the Dock can only do one 4K resolution display but leads you to believe the dock can do more as it is labeled 4K until you read the fine print of the limitations.

Other Thoughts: It would be nice to see the device do multiple 4K resolution displays.

I would like to see another HDMI port added on and another Thunderbolt as you can use one to go from the laptop to the displays but not both displays being done by Thunderbolt connections.
