Recent reviews:

I had a set of these things from NetGear years back. They were big, clunky, and got very hot to the touch. They were also 40% costly than they are listed now, although mine ended up being half that purchasing new off an auction site. Point being, like most tech they have shrunk in both size and cost. I will be completely and totally honest with you. You may not need these. If you have a simple need like a DVR that just needs to update TV programming, a Blue-ray player that needs sporadic updates, or something along those lines, and your home does not block the signals too much, you may be able to just get a wireless bridge for maybe 1/3 the price. But, you’ll most probably have to know comparatively technical settings to configure, it can be slower depending the construction of your home, may dropping signals when a microwave comes on, and if you are someone worried about electromagnetic signals and any kind of adverse influence on health you are pumping out more radio waves into your home. I have a wireless bridge I use also and it took me half an hour of digging through badly translated Chinese and playing with settings to get it to work. That being said, to me the powerline adapters are the gold standard in convenience. You know what the configuration on these is? You plug them in. Yeah, that is it. All you must do is take an Ethernet cable coming out of your router, plug it into one, stick it in the wall, then repeat the procedure in reverse out of the other unit in the different outlet. You are now set up and good to go. You may be able to know nothing at all about technology and the units just work. To add security to the network, just hold a button on the side of the plugged in adapter (it is the only button on the thing) for 2 seconds.

Nearly caught the house on fire. Customer beware .

These work great This is the second set (of two) I have bought. The convenience and easy setup/use is simply great I have wifi with lots of devices and laptops all using it. I have a couple of servers hosting some personal websites/services. Wifi is too slow for serious work, particularly when the family are connected to Netflix, etc. So, I use cables. At least I used to I have replaced all of the cables. You know, those cables that stretch across the house from the cable modem/switch to the machines in different regions of the house. It is so nice I wish I had tried these years ago WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor) is quite high since to get rid of the cables. :)This package comes with a six foot Ethernet cable. It really feels like a pretty good one, too Some clarification about the Powerline models / naming:The & 34;NETGEAR Powerline 500& 34; is the same device/model as the & 34;Powerline AV500& 34; and the same as & 34;Powerline 500 Nano& 34;, which is the same as the & 34;XAVB5201& 34; model. I found the naming/packaging confusing, because they could use them interchangeably. Compatibility:Your computer does not know or care that the network is running over the electrical line Just for being thorough, I have used this with Windows 8, 8. 1, Server 2012, and Debian 6/7. Performance:I do not get 500Mbps with this device, when plugged into the same outlet (not sure if that could make a difference anyway). The name surely implies that you could get 500Mbps. The amazon listing title & 34;NETGEAR Powerline 500Mbps Adapter – Starter Kit (XAVB5201)& 34; says you’ll get 500Mbps. The box obviously states that you’ll get (up to) 500Mbps. But, you will not get it. The speed is close to 100-150Mbps.
