Tenda P200 Powerline Mini Adapter Kit Up to 200Mbps

  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Unreliable in the long run 01/08/2015

This review is from: Tenda P200 Powerline Mini Adapter Kit Up to 200Mbps

Pros: They worked fairly well, and were extremely easy to set up. I bought a second pair because I liked the first so much. Definitely easier than running wires through the house.

They also look very good and take up very little space.

Cons: After a certain amount of time, for me, on average about 1 year, they fail.

Three out of the four I owned failed in the exact same way. I assume the fourth would have failed as well, but a single device was useless by itself, so it was filed in the round bin.

The failure mechanism was quite annoying as well. When they starting to fail they would emit a high pitched squeel that was audible throughout the house, but quiet enough to be hard to pinpoint.

Other Thoughts: After an autopsy on one of them, I found that the main capacitor in the power supply had blown. As these devices get quite warm, I'm sure the problem was that the capacitor was not rated for the environment. I'd still be using these if they had spent an extra few cents on a better cap.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Extremely easy to setup, lots and lots and lots and lots of configuration options beyond just being a NAS. There are tons of plugins that do everything from being a webserver to an authentication server. All of it is quick and easy to use, and if you really want, you can log in to the shell and manually install whatever you want.

Cons: One of the drives I bought did not line up with one of the sata connectors in the back. I switched which drive was which slot, and that fixed it.

5 out of 5 eggs Works, but not through power strip 12/11/2012

This review is from: Tenda P200 Powerline Mini Adapter Kit Up to 200Mbps

Pros: It works fantastically.
Very plug and play if connected correctly (ie. if you follow the directions and actually plug it directly into the wall).

Cons: Gets a little warm.
The odd shape disallows other plugs right next to it on a power strip, but since it works Vastly better not on a power strip, the odd shape is fine.
The "reset" button has three different functions depending on how long you depress it: 2-3 for find a device, 9-11 for disconnect, over 15 seconds for restore to factory defaults.
None of the cons beat out the awesomeness of it once it is set up, which is very easy to do.

Other Thoughts: The LAN light doesn't blink on data transfer, but rather the "device is connected to another device" light blinks. Seems odd.
