Good quality product for the price Verified OwnerVerified Owner


Good quality for the price.
Easy to install
Mostly reliable
Drops the signal intermittent.
Used for upstairs bedroom wired access for computers/TVs, Being reliable most of the time. Sometimes, it drops the signal, but not sure if that is due to my power line inside of the house or the product itself. For video streaming and internet surfing, it is just perfect. I used for my gaming computer as a wired access as well, it does have intermittent hiccups, maybe once or twice per day. yet mostly reliable.

FYI: Found this is quite reliable device, so bought another one to use for guest bedroom. Unfortunately, if you use two devices on a same power line, it does not work.

Experience: 2 Weeks

very easy to set up


fast and convenient
easy set up and nice to help me extend my line distance limit

Experience: 4 Weeks


compact and works well
missing the plug in that my other one has
I have been using trendnet products for many years they work very well and I will continue to recommend and use them in the future so keep making great products thank you

Experience: 36 Days


Truely plug&play, no setup required
I cannot find anything bad
I was expecting at least some trouble, but not even !

Experience: 1 Years


Reliable, stable connection
Acceptable speeds
Still some stutters when streaming high bitrate full HD content
I've had this set for more than a year now, and one thing that strikes me is the reliability. Not sure if I'm lucky or what but I've not had to unplug/reset these devices yet!

I'm using these to connect an Android TV box to my router to which is upstairs. Wireless is a bit flaky on the box so I'm using these as an alternative to running a hardwired ethernet connection.

No problems at all when streaming internet content, but when streaming high bitrate 1080p content from my NAS, I do get some stutters but that's to be expected.

Overall highly recommended for the price.

Experience: 60 Days


easy installation
Not the fastest one on the market, but it's still a decent product when it's on sale

Experience: 3 Years


Works without setup
Loss sync once in 2 years
I used one set in a house that would not do wireless more than 15ft. After months of trying, I broke down, installed the adapters and had perfect wired connection in the time it took to walk the 30 ft from the router. Solved the wireless issue, period!!
I installed the second set in a small business to hook up a credit card machine. Again, no effort, just plug in and walk to the unit, plug in an it worked. No configuration.

Experience: 1 Months


Effectively transmits internet connection
No loss in internet connection despite light blinking an amber color (Tho may differ)
None as of so far
Great product, got it on sale as-well! Produced a better effect then an $100 wireless range extender that i purchased.

Experience: 1 Days


Reliable,affordable, and easy to install.
not that I've known of, yet.
Bought the same set more than a year ago. It works really well, so I decided to get another set for another room when it is on sale again because we have poor wifi signals. Super!

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.
