Netgear XAVB5421-100PAS AV500 1-Port Essentials Edition Powerline Kit with Pass-Thru Outlet,up to 500Mbps
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: I've been using these for a few weeks and they work very well. I have one installed in the same plug as the main router and cable modem. The other one is installed upstairs on the other side of the house where the wifi tends to be weaker. I have this connected to a switch with 2 computers, the backup server, smart tv, and bluray player. Everything works fine with it and I don't have any problems watching Netflix. Considering the house I live in is over a hundred years old and the two outlets are definitely not on the same circuit I'm more than happy with the speed this offers. I would say I get an average of 32 mbps speeds out of the unit. It's not 500 mbps but more than enough to do what I need to do. I have not tried transferring data between computers over the connection but I assume I would get slightly better results.

I also like the efficiency of the unit. I was using a ZyXEL unit which took up more room at the plug and ran very warm. This unit is smaller and doesn't get much above room temperature.

Cons: No many cons to bring up. Obviously I'd love to see 500 mbps but I have a feeling that would only happen in perfect situations. If I lived in a newer home and the plugs were on the same circuit I would guess this would really be nice.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm happy with these units and will continue to use them. I would recommend them to anyone who want a quick, easy way to connect a router with a computer in separate parts of the house.

Pros: Great OEM drive. Works fine at writing and reading CDs. The best thing about it was that I got it super cheap with free shipping. No cardboard box or pesky documentation to throw away.

Cons: It is OEM so don't expect a box. It will be packed in bubble wrap with no documentation/warranty card. As long as you realize that, you'll be fine. There was a CD with some kind of ASUS Suite of software included but was packed snapped in half. I assume it was full of the typical "trial" or "lite" software so not like I was missing anything.

Other Thoughts: I've always liked ASUS products and have purchased a lot of their monitors, motherboards, video cards, and wifi routers. I expect this will be just as good as the others. I'd recommend it.
