Pros
-VERY easy to install
Cons
High price compared to conventional wired/ wireless
Summary
All you need is to plug it into the wall... and it works! I've installed 2 of those in the past weeks, and it works like a charm. Saved me a lot of time, insted of fishing cables in my walls!

Highly reccomended.

Pros
No Signal drop.
Easy to connect.
Different from other powerlines, it can connect up to 4 devices
Cons
short power cable?
Summary
I just linked this from my PC via HTPC & PS3.
The installation was pretty easy and straight forward.
The only problem I had was I wasn't able to connect if it I connect through surge bars. Otherwise I was pretty satisfied with the product.

Pros
-steady connection
-easy setup
Cons
-no connection strength indicator
-fairly expensive
Summary
I bought this to hook up my PS3/Xbox360 and it works fine for this purpose. Probably wouldn't use it for hardcore purposes, but it is pretty good at what I'm using it for. Only thing I have against it is the stand is pretty flimsy and doesn't keep it upright very well.

Pros
. consistent speed, stable connection
. AC Plug has extension cord so that it only blocks/uses one outlet.
. Built in Hub/Switch
Cons
. Negoiating at 100Mb but yielding only 2MBytes/sec ( YMMV on electrical wiring )
. Negoitates 10Mb when the circuits are further away ( eg: 1st floor to 2nd floor )
. Encryption sync forces you to stay with this brand
. flimsy plastic stands
. price
Summary
Decided to try this to replace my flaky wifi-g as I do not have the option to wire my place with cat5/6 cables. It is much better in than my wifi as it provides a consistent transfer speed and does not drop. I am happy with this.
Seems to be reliable/stable at 2MBytes/sec (filetransfer) going from Circuit A to Circuit B in my house on same floor on my PCs. Within one adapter is a built in Hub/Switch( I got 10MBytes per second for a file transfer while using 6ft cat5 cables ).
The box packaging forces you to rip the box. Encryption setup is like how you would do it for your XB controller; no software; that makes it easy but most likely locks you to this brand; I would have preferred to set the encryption myself.

Pros
- Instant networking, no set up required, just plug the units in
- Connection never drops
Cons
- Advertised speed is too much exaggerated (200Mbps??) I get one tenth of that only (~20Mbps). Some plugs perform even worse (<6Mbps).
- Slow file transfer speed, as a result.
- Skippy HD video streaming, as a result. SD video streaming is fine though.
Summary
If you want to have a solid network connection without any signal drops, the kit may be for you. For Internet browsing and SD video streaming, it works well. I would say that the kit performs slightly better than a 10 base T network and on par with my wireless G router. Don't expect to get high speed file transfer.
