Netgear PLP1200-100PAS HomePlug AV2 MIMO AV1200 Powerline Gigabit Ethernet Adapter Kit with Pass-Thru, up to 1200Mbps

2 out of 5 eggs Excited to try it, but not what I was hoping for 06/14/2016

This review is from: Netgear PLP1200-100PAS HomePlug AV2 MIMO AV1200 Powerline Gigabit Ethernet Adapter Kit with Pass-Thru, up to 1200Mbps

Pros: Bringing wired ethernet to rooms that didn't have it.

Cons: The speed is so inconsistent.
Connectivity issues overall.

Other Thoughts: The concept of this is great -- I have always wanted to try it. However, I have always had my doubts on whether or not it would actually work. After seeing an incredible sale on these, I picked up two packs (4 total), thinking that if they worked well enough, I would offer the extra pack to a friend. However, the speed has been inconsistent, and I expected that it might work even better in a newer home (my house was only 4 months old when I bought these), but that certainly was not the case.

For most general internet users, the speed and connectivity may be acceptable; for me, with my 4K HD streaming and online gaming, it was completely insufficient.

If you are a gamer like me, wireless is more consistent and stable than even these things. With my Netgear A6210 adapter I get way higher speeds and consistency. To be honest, with the A6210, I can honestly say for the first time that I don't feel the burning need to even have a wired connection anymore.

NETGEAR CM600 24 x 8 960 Mbps DOCSIS 3.0 High Speed Cable Modem Certified by Comcast XFINITY, Time Warner, and Other Service Providers
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Having owned this for more than a month, I have to say I am truly impressed. The best part is that it is compatible with TWC. Simple to activate, haven't had one issue in more than 30 days. While that is expected, I had the stock rented modem from TWC for my first 3 months and it was not stable like this modem.

Cons: None I can think of.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking to get away from rental fees and want something you can break even on in less than a year, this is the way to go.

CM Storm Stryker - White Full Tower Gaming Computer Case with Handle and External 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is an amazing case. Has plentiful space for my 280mm radiator with push/pull config as well as my dual video cards, 4 SATA HDD's, 2 SSD's and easy cable management. I have a Storm Trooper case as well, but I actually like this design better (subtle, but great updates). Highly recommend to anyone looking for a full tower case. You'll be amazed at the dust control and space!

Cons: The Storm Trooper version had an eSATA port on the top. The Storm Stryker case I got seems to have removed that port. Not a big deal as it was rarely used.

Other Thoughts: I like the sleeker feel of this over the original Storm Trooper case. In fact, I like it so much, I would like to pick up a few more of these.
