This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV 500Mbps Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit
Pros: Easy setup
Cons: Low File Transfer Speed
Other Thoughts: I live in a newer home built in 2006 so I thought the wiring should be good enough to give me some good file transfer speeds with this powerline kit but I was horribly wrong...
The two adapters are plugged directly into wall sockets and are literally 12 feet apart with one up in the bedroom next to the cable modem and the other one directly below it in the living room next to a media center PC. The setup took less than a minute and that is the best part of this kit but once that was done I tried copying a number of files from one computer to another and the top speed I was able to reach was barely 3 MB/s whereas my Wireless-N router provides sustained transfer speed of 11 MB/s.
I also tried installing (on the computer connected directly to one of the adapters) the latest version of TP-LINK "Powerline Utility" downloaded from their website to see if there are any settings that could speed up the connection but I kept getting "The local device hasn't been connected" error message even though the devices were connected and I was able to transfer the files and access internet.
All in all this was a total waste of money in my case and I would not recommend this kit to a friend.
I understand that the transfer speeds could depend on wiring and other factors but as I mentioned this is a newer home so if you already have a Wireless-N or AC and getting speeds over 5 MB/s your are most likely not going to gain anything by buying these.
All speeds I mention here are in Megabytes per second MB/s, not megabits per second.
