|stalkj||I ordered these and have had a positive experience so far. Background: I have 15Mbps service, my cable modem is on my second floor, my house was built in 1992 and I was looking for a solution to run internet to my Xbox 360 in the basement. The install took less than 10 minutes and speed tests show no noticeable speed loss from a test with a PC connected Ethernet to my router (sitting next to cable modem on 2nd floor) vs the same PC connected via Ethernet wall adapter in the basement. For me, not having a wireless adapter for my Xbox, it was a great solution - both from a performance and cost view.|

the 500mbps kit from best buy for $50 works great. I've had it for months and it streams bluray rip mkv files perfectly to my linux media center. No lag/buffering. Also have a switch hooked to it and my ps3.
I could not stream these same video files over wireless G connection so these powerline adapters work perfect for my needs.

I blindly support buying these because someone in a thread said they're good without providing any kind of technical documentation or information as to how they perform under various conditions and situations.
In for 200.

Powerline products have been around since the early 2000's. http://en.wikipedia.or

So you still make absolutely no point here.
I actually took the time to look through reviews, technical documentation, and IEEE standards. You say you've been using these for 10 years, yet they were brought on as a standard by IEEE 1901 only 2 years ago. Something doesn't seem right here. Either you're full of shit, or IEEE is somehow completely unaware of new technologies coming out for years and years.
Oh, and quite a few people actually complain about how slow their connections are if you actually did take the time to look. Again, as I mentioned in the first place, the speed would greatly depend on how your house is wired. I didn't tell people not to buy these, if you didn't notice. I did say that it would be best to evaluate your environment and base the decision off of an educated, well thought out plan. (Kind of like the guy that posted the idea I repped him for a few comments before your asinine input.)
So again, not threadcrapping. Sorry if you're too butthurt to see that.

This thread has over 30 positive votes at this time. Another proof point powerline products do work well, as has been in my experience.

If these devices are as fragile and not useful as you assert, we would see lots of other users and customers (who actually own and used the products) complaining about what a waste of money / time these devices are. There is no such feedback for the most part. In fact on Amazon doing a random search for Powerline products, people will find overwhelmingly positive reviews for these devices. Here is one random example: http://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Pow...=powerlin
Most people who have tried these devices, actually are pretty pleased with how they work. You are the only one who has consistently chimed in this thread with FUD about power surges, noise, etcs., about something which you have had NO personal experience with.
So please, for God's sake, stop thread crapping already.

Are you talking about coax in the TV? Or do you mean power plug?
|10-04-2012 11:40 AM|
You don't provide any reasonable idea as to why anything I had stated is false. So as far as I'm concerned, you're talking out of your ass right now. I'm not threadcrapping at all, I'm just using my experience to formulate an idea as to how these work. I read through articles and saw quite a few things that supported this idea that I came up with. So before you go spouting off like that, how about some intelligent thought.

You obviously have never used powerline products.
I have used powerline products for almost 10 years now, in several homes. Work great, decent speed, and easy as pie to plug / play. They are designed to handle power surges / noise, and are very practical for a LAN.
