Netgear XAVB5221-100PAS AV500 1-Port Essentials Edition Powerline Kit, up to 500Mbps

1 out of 5 eggs Solid speed increase at the cost of malfuntions elsewhere 01/05/2016

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

Pros: Fairly cheap, and very easy to set up. Plug and play, no adjustments made.

Cons: Directly after installing this units at my router and computer a touch lamp in the bedroom began randomly going on and off, or changing brightness. I chalked it up to lamp failure but after unplugging the powerline networking units it returned to normal.
The computer began to take 3-4 minutes to return from sleep mode, never had done that before. I took out the old wireless card which made no difference. Unplugged the Cat 5 cable from the Netgear unit and the computer returned to normal function.
Upon re-installation of the wireless NIC I now have network again, the computer doesn't take 3-4 minutes to return from sleep mode, but I have this Netgear Powerline 500 kit to return. MEH.

Other Thoughts: I would love to hear from others about similar issues, or once again I have a very unique situation on my hands with strange goings on after purchasing a new tech item.

SanDisk Ultra II 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Arrived undamaged. Worked, sort of. I get to spend time with my computer trying to figure out why the drive is so slow.

Cons: Very slow drive in my aging AMD system. I have a 970 chipset, quad core running at 3.7ghz and 8GB ram. At first I cloned and that was a no go, computer locked up. After a fresh load of Win 7 Ultimate it does boot and function but at a slower rate than the 10k spinner that it replaced. I'm seeking a solution now and will get back to you.

Other Thoughts: I have a 128GB Sandisk drive in another computer with a newer mobo and a I5 and it functions normally for an SSD, boot time was appreciably faster. Maybe it is the 2009 mobo and older chipset that is the problem with S-L-O-W boot times and software loading. Windows updates just drag along.
Not what I was looking for when I spent my $100.

Plextor M5M 128GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PX-128M5M
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cool factor, it's so tiny and plugs into the M-sata spot on my mobo. It's still working and it's fast, 20 secs to useable desktop.

Cons: Cost per megabyte

Other Thoughts: If your motherboard has an m-sata slot these are so cool.
