This powerline network adapter delivers Gigabit performance so it runs fast and gives you a great network throughout your electrical system. This model has a built-in outlet, so you do not give up a plug wherever you use it which is very nice. You can connect up to eight adapters on a single network with this model, which is probably more than enough for most environments. The biggest weakness of this adapter is it only has a single port. While you can use up to eight adapters, each one can only connect to a single device which can be an issue if you need to connect multiple devices at a single location. This is still a great option that’s easy to set up but it would be far better with one or two additional ports as part of its design.
There's a lot to like about this easy to set up model, starting with the fact that it's a Gigabit adapter so you get fast performance through your network. It has a built-in outlet, so you’re not giving up an outlet wherever you plug it in. This one supports up to 16 nodes on the network, so you can include up to 14 additional adapters with the two provided in this kit. However, this adapter’s biggest design flaw is it only has a single port. While that’s mitigated somewhat by the inclusion of a noise-filtered outlet, (making it easy to place this adapter just about anywhere) it’s still an issue if you plan on using two or more devices in one location which each require a physical network connection.
The biggest issue to consider before choosing this powerline adapter is the network speed that you need. This model supports up to 500Mbps data rates so if you need Gigabit support then this isn’t a good choice. However, it’s easy to set up and use and the adapter has four Ethernet ports on it which gives you a ton of options for connecting devices. This is a great choice if you need to set up a smart TV, video game system, and additional hardware with physical connections to your network. It includes 128-bit encryption for added security and comes with two Ethernet cables. However, there's no outlet on this model so be sure you have an outlet set aside for plugging in these adapters.
