I bought this for a customer. Got it at 39.99$ for the kit. Performance depends on your electrical wiring. SOme place, I had bad performance, but when I plug it into the same circuit or close, it works perfectly.
Plugged it into a socket near my router, plugged the other one upstairs next to my desktop and was up and running in no time. My house is around 35 years old, and currently, I get around 6 to 7 MB/s (That's megabytes per second), which is around half the maximum rated speed of 100mbps. It's a slight improvement over my wifi speeds, but more importantly, I don't have to worry about the wifi occasionally dropping during a large download, or while connected to my work VPN. I've only been using it less than a week, so we'll see how it holds up. Hope it holds up to power spikes, as you must plug it directly into the wall socket (no power bar or UPS).
I'm upgrading from the 200Mb version from TP link. I had a weird issue previously, I have a 2 year old house and was only getting 1MB/s during the day and 0MB/s during the night. Granted my house it 3 stories and it going from the basement to the top (4 levels) but still I thought throughput was pretty bad.
Just upgraded from the TPL-308E2K/A 200 Mbps kit to this one. The 308E2K worked well in my single level rancher from one end of house to other and streamed video on You Tube on my smart tv at 103 Mbps max..occasional stutter and delay loading web pages. This kit comes in at 153 Mbps ...an improvement for sure but still is some delay loading web pages but I'm blaming that on the Android box with Android 2.3 as not having the power I'm looking for. Overall I think these are great solution to the dead zone my TV was in with my WiFi at the other end of house and I didn't have to crawl under house to run cable.
I got my kit for less than 30 bucks, so it's definitely good value.
However, the rated speed, like others have noted, is just for show. I get anywhere from 150 to 220 mbps when doing files transfer. But on some outlets, I got flaky connections. However given that the wiring of my rental unit is quite old and never upgraded, I can't really blame the adaptors. I also don't like the fact that they don't work well when connected to a power bar (is that done on purpose so we have to buy the more expensive kit with extra outlets ?)
I really recommend this kit to anyone who need to expand his network but does not want to run the cable all over the house. hook up with a hub, I use this kit to connect a pc for my parent who watch youtube all day long. plus I also connect it with 2 surverance camaras 24/7. This kit also are working another kit that I bought before(Netgear I think), so far no compatibility issue found.
I just plugged and instantly leaped from a 19mbps wireless connection into the wonders of 39mpbs internet.
I live on a rental, and based on the sorry state of the outlets, the wiring has been there since the pilgrims, so powerline was a total shot in the dark. But I get all green lights from the adapter and the amazing aforementioned speed.
Got these to connect a couple of windows 7 computers. I actually used these in conjunction with the older TPL-401E2K kit. Easy to set up with the older kits. Basically you have to use this new kit as the base and the older kit is re-configured to work with the new ones.
The speed of the these is no way near the advertised speeds as others have mentioned. It is faster than the wireless G connection that i had but i maxed out around 5MBs. I was on the same house phase wiring but three floors apart.
