They were incredibly easy to set up; pretty much plug and play. I had all 4 connected and my devices networked in a few minutes.
I particularly like the ability to disable the LED's on the plugs remotely from the management software. Several of the plugs are in bedrooms so I can switch the LED's off to avoid having a glow in the corner of the room.
I contacted UK Voice support only to be told I would have to raise a request via email. I duly did so and went through the mill of email exchange to ascertain that I was not a complete idiot and that I had exhausted all the common sense tests that they could throw at me - essentially a repeat of the process I had gone through before I called them.Ok so they eventually conclude hardware failure "so please ring UK voice support". Duly do so get bounced around, put on hold and then "oh you only have 90 days hardware warranty you are out of support! Would you like to subscribe for Gearheads paid support". Well no the My.Netgear site clearly shows Warranty to January 2013 and I evidenced this to them by sending a screen shot! Ok you are in Warranty but we will claim the product is out of stock (but it is in free circulation) more email exchanges, more platitude responses....
Do they simply play the attrition game so the Customer simply gives up, dies from frustration or a stroke of apoplexy!!
Not got it nor have they got it about post sales Customer care. So Caveat Emptor not all is what it seems.
Customer Services no help either no response just a emailed survey link to tell them how wonderful they are....NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!
The issue came when trying to connect my iPhone to my PC's iTunes library to control my music around the house. With the HDX's it worked no problem where i have the iPhone 'Remote' app connected to the wireless router which is in turn connected to the Powerline adapter that connects to my PC which hosts the iTunes library.
Although you can add the device in iTunes the library does not pass through the XAV101 powerline adapter, due to i'm guessing, the added security features in the newer adapters. But when i switch back to my older HDX's everything works perfectly fine.
There are threads on both Apple's and Netgear's support forums about the issue and I've logged the issue with Netgear support, which they say will be lab tested in the next week.
In summary: Excellent product and what you'd expect from Netgear, but simple sharing issues need to be resolved or allow you to disable the security features. If they can fix the issue then i'd give them 5 out of 5.
