This review is from: TRENDnet TPL-308E2K Powerline 200 AV Nano Adapter Kit Up to 200Mbps
Pros: These devices will save you time and money. Even as a do it yourselfer they will save you time and money. Great way to get a computer wired in to the internet without running cables throughout the walls in your house. Enables you to have plug and play internet through the use of your electric wiring.
Simply plug one unit in at the router and the other into the location that you want internet in the house and you will be up and running in no time. The CD-ROM is not really necessary for setup, but it does have the software for the utility setup and the user's manual.
If you want to step away from wireless and have a wired network (depending on the number of computers in your household this would be the route to go. It doesn't get any simpler. There is no problem with NetFlix, or Skype, or even Youtube...online gaming ran smoothly also.
Cons: There is no wall plug pass through for the device. you will lose a power socket on the wall. There is a small noise factor once these units are plugged in and in use. Connection cable should be longer.
Other Thoughts: These (and others) have a problem when they are used in add on offices and rooms to houses and businesses. Tried these in a building I was doing a charity network install and they would not connect in the add on room of a recreation center. Ensure that you are plugged into a straight circuit when trying to connect these units in buildings that may have separate wiring grids. Other than that this is a great product.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TRIPP LITE TLP1208TEL 8 ft. 12 Outlets 2160 Joules Surge Protector
Pros: Purchased 2 of these on sale and they work perfectly. with the spreading of sockets on one side it is easy to plug in power adapters with built-in transformers at the plugged. Great buy at $29.99 when I purchased in March 2013 and remains the same today.
Other Thoughts: Great surge protector.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Allows you to use ever plug on a power strip, surge protector, or UPS when plugs are close together. They establish a stand-off for right or left angled power plugs. Worth the price at the time $3.95.
Cons: None, but the price is a bit steep.
Other Thoughts: You can get packages of 5 on Newegg for $12.99 (less than $2.59 each) and $5.39 shipping ($3.67 each w/shipping).READ FULL REVIEW
