- William C.
""I do have line noise and old wiring but the units worked fine right off. I never did have to re-install them or touch them which I think is amazing.""
- Robert F
""It does not get any more plug and play than this. And while the 100mb ethernet may hit performance a bit, the overall value of cost vs performance cannot be denied. This is a bargain - and certainly has been more reliable and consistent than any of the wifi routers I had been using. For those who gave it a try and it didn't impress, you might need to do a little homewhork with regards to your home wiring - certain types of breakers can cause problems. And you can't plug these into most power strips/conditioners and expect them to work well (if at all) - which only makes sense, if you think about it. These have saved me a bundle of energy, effort, and time in getting decent internet speed throughout my house - worth every penny... a bargain!""
- Antho.ny M
""Performs flawlessly. I can move up to 500mbps of data between my computers over an in-house electrical socket grid (that uses copper wiring) without losing data. Performed beyond my expectations and continues to perform at high quality.""
- Ken A.
""Was displeased with the connectivity between my wireless router and smart TV. Rep at Best Buy suggested I consider the PWR 500. Set up couldn't be easier. And connectivity has been absolutely solid since the first day. Highly recommend this product for anyone experiencing the problem I was having.""
- Charles P.
""They work flawlessly, I've bought two sets over the last three years and had zero problems with them. I recommend them to all my friends.""
- Martin B.
""I have long runs that are now not needed to do, as the powerline connectors work flawlessly. Excellent for streaming video throughout the home with no dropouts or problems. Highly recommended as a quick solution to long cable runs, and poor wireless connectivity. Awesome product and easy solution.""
- Warren H.
""Works fine, Easy to install""
- Mark S.
