Very easy to setup and works fine.
Claudio A Prado
I had used a couple of Netgear 200Mbps powerline adapters in my previous home with great success and so decided to give these a shot.
D. Stein
It was easy to setup, and I now get a much faster and more stable connection.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I received this product through Amazon's vine program, which means that I received it for free in exchange for writing this review.

This item is a pair of powerline ethernet adapters. It plugs into a wall outlet and has an ethernet jack. It allows you to connect any two ethernet devices using the electrical wires, instead of ethernet cables. The data is then sent over the powerlines that run through your walls.

So, for example, I use it to connect my network printer, which I keep in my garage, with the rest of my computer network. I don't have an ethernet network jack in the garage, and so I plugged this box into a regular outlet and then plugged the printer into the ethernet jack on the box. I then plugged the second box into a jack in my house and plugged that into my network. Voila! Now, my printer is on my network.

Although the kit includes two units, you can purchase additional units and add them to the network later.

There are range limits. The further each unit is from the other, the slower the data will be transmitted. And if you're too far, you won't get data transmission at all. Netgear has a program you can download from their web-site (called the Powerline Utility) that you can run on a Windows computer and that will show you all the units that are connected to the "main" unit (the one that is connected to the computer you are running the software on) and their data transmission speed.

There are a number of companies that make these devices, and almost all of them (including these) use the HomePlugAV specification for sending data over powerlines. Any unit that is HomePlugAV compliant can talk to any other HomePlugAV compliant device, and so this one will work with similar products made by Zyxel, Netgear, and Linksys, etc.

I have the previous version of this item that is rated at 200 mbps. It works just as well and I don't constantly loose my internet connection. With this new one I loose the connection for a few seconds on a regular basis.

I cannot tell that the item connects any faster than the old 200 mbps version.

I would not purchase this item if you already have the older one if you are expecting faster connection speeds or a more stable connection.

I've been a Network Engineer for over 10 years and ever since I've dealt with computers, cabling is one of the worst aspects of the job. I can't tell you how many times I've run/extended CAT3/CAT5/CAT5e/CAT6 cabling and ended up terminating both ends and testing them. Some situations are easier than others when you're allowed to run a cable across the floor or above ceiling tile... but in other situations like getting networking in a certain room in your house can be a total pain in the butt.

For the average home user, the only way to get networking from point A to your house to point B is either wired with cabling or use WiFi & bridging if the WiFi didn't extend far enough. When Powerline technology came out it added convenience of existing power cabling but still was a little flaky and troublesome. But since then, Powerline has jumped leaps and bounds since and is much more reliable & faster.

When it came time to buy, I put a lot of research into looking into the latest powerline solution for my home. I wanted something with high performance and the current version of "high performance Powerline devices" allows 500Mbps transfer rate. Even still, I was having trouble selecting which manufacturer to go with (Belkin, Cisco, Netgear, etc). After my homework (and despite Netgear's horrible sales support), I ended up with a Netgear anyway.

The Netgear Powerline AV device I wanted was not on Amazon (Powerline AV+ 500 Nano (which has the extra outlet built-in)). It seemed nobody had it despite being listed on Netgear's website. I spoke with Netgear Sales Support and they said it wasn't discontinued, but on backorder. I'm not sure why but because I was on a time table, I decided to get the other version, the Powerline Nano 500 Set which I'm reviewing.

Incredible -- I took them out of the box - plugged one in near my router,
and the other one upstairs -- solid green light -- took right off. That's it -- plug in the two supplied Cat-5 cables and you're totally installed. I even tested it by plugging in a 5-port switch at the remote end. No problems -- I couldn't see any speed difference -- my laptop was connecting at 1.0Gbps (in network properties). No lag, no errors. I put a Wireless-G Access Point on at the remote end -- working great!!
These units are really small - about the size of a small transformer -- plug them in and go!

UPDATE: August 8, 2012 - 4 months later- and they're still running strong -- NO issues from these little units! My customer is VERY happy-- much better than the Linksys devices I installed a few years ago.

After a week using them, here's my 2 cents:

So I got 6 of these things (3 sets of 2 for about $330 total):

I planted them at various parts of the house. 2 TVs, 2 Tivos, and 1 computer are hooked up to them.

transfer rate depends on proximity of each adapter to the one that's connected to the router. It's impossible to get the advertised 500Mbps unless the adapters are within about 5 feet of the router-connected adapter. There are certain areas of my house that can't even get a connection because it's too far away (6000sf house). Most of my connections are in the 50Mbps range, which is sufficient for most of my needs, however the farthest TV gets less than 5 Mbps, and has a hard time streaming 1080p video content from my PCs, and occasionally loses connection altogether.

The instructions say not to plug into powerstrips, but 3 of my adpaters are plugged into powerstrips, and function just fine.

It doesn't compete on bandwidth like wireless, and it's almost just as 'portable'. Overall, this is a decent system for homes under 4,000sf, and probably would be for small businesses too if internal network speeds of less than 80Mbps is acceptable.

If you're building a new home or office, I'd definitely recommending traditional wiring first. Powerline network should only be reserved for when traditional LAN connection is not readily available and you want something a little more reliable than wireless.
