Some customer reviews of TP-Link AV1200 Gigabit Powerline Adapter TL-PA8010PKIT

Most helpful reviews

Phil, Manchester

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy set up - plug and play.
"pass through" means it doesn't take up a power outlet.
Bad points:
I would have scored straight "10's" if this unit had a second Ethernet port.
It is not possible to use the adjacent outlet when the unit is plugged into a "dual" socket outlet. - Could do with being slimmed down.
Overall rating 8.0
Compatibility 7.0
Performance 9.0
Reliability 10.0
Value for money 7.0

Alasdair,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I bought the TP Link AV1200 Powerline kit as an upgrade to a Powerline 500 system. I was expecting some increase in speed but I'm genuinely astonished by how much faster these are.

Previously the link between my PC (home office) and NAS (garage) ran at 120 Mbps according to the powerline utility software. This resulted in real world transfer speeds of 40Mbps/5MBs approx.

Since the upgrade I have had a *tripling* of transfer speed. The utility shows a connection speed of about 350 Mbps and I get about 130Mbps/16MBs transfers when copying video files/MP3s etc

I still have one old 500Mbps powerline which connects to my internet router. No compatibility issues and again, increased connection speeds between adaptors.
Bad points:
As other have commented they are a little on the bulky side (larger than the pass through adaptors they replaced)
Overall rating 10.0
