Experience: 1 Years
-Cheap(Bought for 30$ at the time)
-Works well enough
-Comes with Ethernet cables
-Better than WiFi for stability
-Can have connectivity issues
It works well enough but can be slower than WiFi in some cases but seems to be more stable most of the time. The came that comes with the kit does the job but could have been longer or a different color but it is okay. I have had some issues with connective recently after having it setup for a while but it seems to fix itself once it is paired again. You can also pair any other set to have more than one outlet, but I don't think you can have two different lines at same time.

Experience: 1 Weeks

Works perfectly, fast setup
None so far
10/10 would buy again

Experience: 1 Years
Allows you to connect to a router that is rooms away from a none wireless computer.
A little bulky and ties up 2 house outlets.
I was not happy with the Purolator delivery that took 12 days to get here. The delivery person did not make any effort to contact the occupant (who was home all day) and he just left a notice. This PowerLine adapter works well from my modem in a computer room to the living room. The first unit was easy to set up and I am still using it after almost a year. This one is for a friend of mine who moved into a 3 story house and does not want to have cables running all over the place.

Don't need 100 foot Cat5 Cable across the house
Looks Clean
As fast as wired.
None so far
It was recommended to me by one of the NCIX store associates, It's been working really well, No notice in speed, even after doing a speed test.

Awesome product so far, but its only been 2-3 weeks.

Experience: 1 Years
Fixes "microwave interruptions" for some Wireless users
Not the fastest on the market
Cheap build
Takes one slot and space from a power outlet
Decent powerline, I bought this while it was relatively cheap, so it was a good buy for me.

There are better powerlines than this one, but for the price I bought (30$) it was a good quality/price ratio.

fairly fast, syncs up quickly, saves wifi bandwidth and processing overhead
500mbps is bad misleading to non-techies
Using this in my bro's house for his plex media client enabled smart TV streaming from his plex server. Was having trouble before since his wifi is so crowded, but now, runs like a dream.

Speeds are about 8 MB/s or about 64mbps (about 80mbps if you include overhead). Yes, its not gigabit or 500mbps (no such thing) ethernet, but it will get the job done for browsing, streaming, transcoding, gaming, and almost anything else needed in a home environment.

If you know anything about networking, you know that these results are VERY good. Anyone complaining in their reviews either has no idea what 100mbps speeds really are, or has horrible wiring in their house.

Plug and play
Works with my WD powerline networking
Fast enough to run Netflix
Only one ethernet outlet per plug
I bought this to connect our bluray player for Netflix access without running cable from the other room. I wanted to buy another Western Digital powerline networking kit as it works well in my house but unfortunately WD does not make them anymore. Picked up this kit on sale, plugged it into receptacle, bluray player and voila, Netflix is working.

I haven't done any speedtests because Netflix works and thata all I care about.

Good and stable speeds, very compact and does not runs as hot as the first generation of powerline adapters. 3 year warranty is a bonus.
500Mbps on the box is kind of misleading, but that goes for all the powerline adapters out there.
Great gadget to have, especially if you just need something close to hardwire 100Mbps, without the need of drilling and feeding wire through the walls.

Experience: 3 Days

Plug and Play
Affordable at $30
Works as advertised
None so far
Took me 2 minutes for setup. Rock solid for last 3 days without any hiccup. If your router cannot give you strong signal because of thick walls, this lil twin will fix it up right away.

Long range
Need to be plug straight in the AC...
I bought a new router Asus RT-AC98U and I wanted to extend my wifi range with my old router. So the power line is used to shared my Internet connexion between my new and old devices.
