*Maximum performance for the Powerline AV2 network adapter is derived from HomePlug Powerline Alliance HomePlug AV2 specification. Actual performance can vary, including lower powerline network capacity and data throughput rate. Performance depends on many factors, conditions and variables, including volume of network traffic, home wiring construction, operating system used, mix of networking products used, interference from other electrical devices, age of home wiring, wireline range and coverage as determined by wiring route or path between devices and other adverse conditions.

An excellent product, July 22nd, 2014
I purchased the the set of PLEK500 power line adapters to connect to an HDTV instead of fishing a new ethernet cable. Setup was simple, no problems encountered. The connection is excellent and functions as expected.

Good product, runs hot, March 14th, 2014
I replaced a Netgear powerline set of adapters. I have not received the extra "bump" in performance. Also, these run hot. However, they do work. Another complaint--I bought this package and would buy another 1, but Linksys only sells them in pairs. Bought directly from Linksys--ordering was great.

Plug it into the wall, connect Ethernet cable, done. Excellent performance, no drops, easier and faster than trying to add repeaters for wifi.

Excellent!, December 9th, 2013
It took less than 5 minutes to resolve years of frustration with WiFi moodiness and hard to wire house areas. My 4 devices are working flawlessly and effortlessly, relaibly streaming videos. Simply, we all love them. I wish the same technology comes soon as a standard built-in inside routers and some of devices.

Reliable, fast, and easy to install, October 17th, 2013
I am very impressed. Installation could not have been easier. I am getting very good results as well. My situation: * Cable modem in one corner of the house. * Wanted to install one wireless router in the middle of the house for complete coverage. * I did not want to run Ethernet cable if at all possible. Solution...bought the PLEK500: * Took one HomePlug and plugged it into an electrical outlet near the cable modem. * Ran an Ethernet cable from the modem to the HomePlug. * Took the other HomePlug and plugged into an electrical outlet near the center of the house. * With another Ethernet cable, I connected the HomePlug to the wireless router. * Joined the the wireless network with my iPhone and was surfing the Internet. It was really that easy to install. I also ran speed tests and was consistently getting the 30Mbit/second download bandwidth as offered by my ISP. If I need more connectivity around the house, then I will not hesitate to purchase more of the is product. Thanks!

Incredible !!!, June 24th, 2013
If you want the short version, BUY THESE, they are awesome !!! If you want the explanation here it is. My goal was to send large files (1.25 – 2.0 GB) mp4 and mkv to my media server that is upstairs in my house. My PC that is used to create these files is downstairs and cutting up the walls to run Ethernet is not an option. First I tried every form of wireless (N150, N300, N900 & even AC) all the wirelees was great for surfing and sending a few MP3’s to the media server. All the wireless SUCKED with movie transfers and copying my itunes folder to the server (40gb) Finally I tried Powerline. Got a set of 200mbps (different brand and they worked well) a movie would transfer in 6 – 7 minutes but it was slow to web surf while this was occurring. I saw that Linksys released the first AV2 spec powerline and thought let’s try them out. A movie now transfers in 2 – 2.5 min (and no lag while surfing and transferring at the same time). Connecting speed is between 210 mbps to 240 mpbs. Having used both 100 megabit Ethernet and eventually gigabit Ethernet in my previous home I’d place the transfer rate on these as substantial faster than 100 megabits and not as fast as gigabit. Note: these are observations not measured throughput, however I have observed a lot of networks so I am confident is stating that if you are looking for powerline adapter that can move some serious data, these should not disappoint. The PLEK 500 is expensive, but it’s also the only AV2 spec kit available – as with automobiles speed doesn’t come cheap.
