Only Has 100Mbps Ethernet Port
on 13 May 2016
These powerline adapters suffer from a huge design issue - the Ethernet port is only 100Mbps. If they're claiming a 500Mbps speed, one would hope they'd put a gigabit Ethernet port on the adapter so you can actually make use of the speed. With a 100Mbps Ethernet port the fastest speed you can get is 12.5MB/s.
For a few hours I was left confused as to why the speed was so low. It was only when I looked at the box and saw "Interfaces: 1* 10/100Mbps Ethernet Port" that I realised what the problem was (see picture). I feel the speed of the Ethernet port is very important information and it should be included in the Amazon listing, but it doesn't appear to be mentioned anywhere.
That was a waste of a few hours. I'm going to bed and I'll arrange to return these tomorrow.
