Experience: 2 Months


Just works.
It does not seem to interfere with other lines and I have one connected to the source and another to my Netgear router no problem.
Runs a bit warm
Seems to break easily as one of the adapters unusuably crumbled after putting under luggage
A bit expensive overall

Experience: 20 Days


Provides flawless streaming. Easy to install.
Software is a bit hard to understand what is required, but works anyway.
Excellent product particularly at the sale price I got. I have enhanced DSL, so not really high speed, but all the streaming I have done so far, Netflix, YouTube and PC music has been played flawlessly. HD looks terrific.

Experience: 5 Days


Works perfectly, easy set up and even higher speeds than expected.
None yet.
Works a lot better than i had expected. Downloading at 3.5mb/s and have had no problems gaming,

Experience: 1 Days


not getting Gigabit, but it works

Experience: 2 Days


-works great
-very little setup required
expensive compared to other kits
Works great for the most part. no disconnections yet and setup was easy

Experience: 7 Days


Easy to set up.
Always connected- good for transferring large files
Faster than wireless
runs a little warm
NO way close to direct CAT5 transmission rate
Got this one as it is rated top powerline kit in one magazine. Three to four times faster than my Netgear 3700 wireless router when paired with dual band USB Linksys AE3000. It doesnot time out when transferring large folder. Only got it one week ago. No problem so far. Almost double speed of D-Link powerline DHP-309AV kit.

Experience: 90 Days


product works great
none if on sale
well made and very easy to install and set-up. Surprisingly good transfer speed. Satisfied with performance.

Experience: 2 Days


Easy to use and works flawlessly
A little pricey
I bought two sets of these because I live in a big house with 3 people who use a lot of video streaming. I tried setting up a wireless network for the family a while ago but it would often d/c or be way too slow. I was a little skeptical about these because I heard they weren't very great when they first came out, but I'd have to say not anymore!
In summary, they are:
-very fast
-very simple to set up (I didn't even have to sync--plug and surf!)
-decent size
-Slightly expensive for me
-Supports multiple HD streaming

I think I might buy another set for the tenants in the basement suite!

Experience: 10 Days


Works as described.
Very easy setup and seems to be working great.

Experience: 1 Days


Fast for powerline ethernet
None yet
I tried a D-Link kit (the one with an adapter and 4 ports switch) and after 3-4 hours trying to have them see each other, I just quit and return them to BB. I decided to try again with those and I just work...

You plug them and that's it. They are pre synced and pre encrypted, not like the D-Link one who you need to hold the button, pray and sacrifice a pig... On the same breaker, I was able to get around 400mbps, on different breaker with around 70 feet of wiring (mid 80' apartment building), I'm able to get around 100mbps with low ping (around 2-3 ms more than using a cat6 with Gigabit ethernet), I also test with Stream in-home Streaming (tested Deus EX:HR) and I didn't notice any difference between those and my gigabit network. I bought this because I gonna move in a 5 years old condo in 2 month and I didn't want to install cat6 for now and I need network for my HTPC in the living room. Wifi is not an option because I used this HTPC stream game in steam alot. So I bet I will be probably able to get better speed in Condo because of newer wiring.

Comment: The Good: The plug-and-play Trendnet Powerline 500 AV2 Adapter provides some three times the speed of a regular Ethernet connection. It's affordable, especially when you purchase a kit of two. The Bad: The adapter is relatively bulky and doesn't have a pass-through power socket. The Bo
