I'm sticking to the $10 pucks available everyday on Amazon. They really arent that bad size-wise. And if you wait for a sale you can get x2 packs for $20 and under for the square/rectangle versions. Prices aren't amazing yet on these wall plug ins.

However, the wall switches referenced work great, as I have a few purchased at the $20 price point. Not a smoking deal by any means. But decent entry point.
You're right, having to factor in the additional clearance room needed plug in adapters isn't that big of a deal. The major selling point of the outlet itself being "smart" rather than a device that plugs into the outlet is the ability to connect devices that require a higher output. Things such as space heaters or AC units come to mind. Yes, there are some plug types that can handle space heaters but generally they cost more and are bulky to the point of only being able to use one outlet.
When you factor in the wider compatibility of devices that can be used, the clean traditional appearance and price that is equivalent to the sale price of the plug in types, people who are home owners would be better off getting the outlets imo.

I have the Kasa external smart plugs - they need rebooting every so often. My wall switches, however, have not. Wonder if these plugs are as reliable as the wall switches. Rebooting them would be a pain, having to switch everything off around them as well.

edit: I control them with Google Home - very nice.
i have the casa external plugs, lots of them everywhere, i've NEVER had a single one that needed rebooting

I have, it happens. You've been lucky. Just like any device that is "smart". The occasional reboot is more likely than not.

They are rated up to 125v, so yes they are good in a 120v socket.

They are used for two different scenarios though, really just depends what kind of setup you have. The pucks may work better for you because of your setup at home where everything plugs into outlets and all you have is lamps and such, but most people would buy these to control a room's lighting that's hardwired/mounted in the actual home where those pucks would be of no use such as my hallway and kitchen lighting.

Why is there no love for these are they a bad product or not a good price? I have been looking at these instead of the plug in smart outlets.
While these are probably a good product like others in the TP-Link line up, these are hard to get behind, for anyone serious about home automation. These are more for the low level tinker that just wants something simple but it does not have to always be reliable.

When spending money on real home automation you are better off going zigbee or zwave. Wifi home automation products are just more for the common consumer.

I'm a fan of TP-Link smart products and have their smart plugs and smart bulbs. I don't have their "TP-Link KP200 Kasa Smart Wi-Fi In-Wall Power Outlet", so I was intrigued. But when I checked their specs, I saw that it doesn't do energy monitoring. WTF? Some of their smart plugs do. This was a bad omission by TP-Link.

I have these, and it appears most people having issues with them don't have some kind of mesh wifi system to actually provide the wifi to the different corners of their house. I have a 2000 sq ft. house and google's wifi 3 puck set up and have not encounter any issues. I did have some issues when only 1 puck was connected and the other two were disconnected by my children.
