TP-LINKs AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter TL-PA4010 turns your existing powerline into a high speed network with no need for new wires or drilling. No configuration is required, simply plug your adapters into your power sockets and you can establish networking infrastructure in a flash. With a speed of up to 500Mbps, TL-PA4010 transmits HD streaming and even 3D movies to every room, making it a great choice for an easy to build multimedia entertainment network.

Miniature Design, Ultra-compact
With its new ultra-compact housing design, TL-PA4010 is much smaller than TP-LINKs legacy mini 500Mbps Powerline Products. At just 28.5mm thick, it nearly blends completely in front of any power outlet.

Up to 500Mbps, 300 Meters
With advanced HomePlug AV technology, TL-PA4010 provides users with stable, high-speed data transfer rates of up to 500Mbps on a line length of up to 300 meters. Together with its built-in AES encryption, the TL-PA4010 is a great choice for a whole home solution to connect all network compatible devices--from computers and game consoles to set-top boxes for IPTV to printers and NAS hard drives.

HD Streaming
Up to 500Mbps powerline speed ensures smooth HD streaming.

Reduce Power Consumption Up to 85%
The TL-PA4010, a new-generation Powerline Adapter, with its practical design and sophisticated Power-Saving Mode consumes less power when compared with existing Powerline Adapters. When there is no data transmission or reception occurs over a certain period of time, it will automatically switch from its regular "Working" Mode to "Power-Saving" Mode that will reduce its energy consumption by up to 85%.

Pair Button for Easy Network Security
Simply by pushing the Pair button on the adapters, users can set up a hassle-free Powerline network within minutes, complete with 128-bit AES encryption for network security and data protection.
It's that simple!
1. Plug the adapter into the power outlet
2. Connect the device via the network cable to the adapter
3. Press the pair buttons and you're done!

Dean, South Africa. 28 April 2015

Love this product. Works as described. Really made a difference to my home network as wi-fi was weak in my bedroom where had media device. Just used this product and is working extremely well.

Jo Staats, South Africa. 7 September 2015

Great product. Finally this technology delivers on its promise. Set up a reliable wired network between two floors of my house in no time at all! And TAKEALOT has the best price in town by far!

Mark, South Africa. 5 May 2014

Plug in and it works. Seems fussy about being on the same trip switch circuit though as had issues getting it to work across two different aged part of the house. Also, WHY oh WHY do we have to put up with these horrid 2 pin plugs? (only criticism. Intermittent contact with the adaptor.)

Rainer, South Africa. 1 April 2014

Setup couldn't be any easier. Love this product!
The only thing that's a bit silly is that it is advertised to work at up to 500Mbps, but it only has a 10/100Mbps Ethernet connection.

Bradley, South Africa. 2 February 2016

Works well and easy to setup.

Michael, South Africa. 26 August 2014

Easy installation and good performance. Setup 3 units in minutes. The 500Mbps rating (AV500) is a theoretical limit for the network as a whole, while the adapters are 10/100, so don't expect 500Mbps from point to point (some people misunderstand and are disappointed).

Leonardus, South Africa. 26 June 2014

Very easy to use, plug it in and connect. Got transfers speeds of 13 MB/s, but can drop to 6 MB/s, might be because of noise on the power line but it still beats WiFi connections. I can not wait for this technology to mature.

Paul, South Africa. 23 October 2014

This is simply the best solution to not having to run cables everywhere. I have 3 of these devices up and running. Problem free and great transfer speeds. Use them to extend your wi-fi range across the house by connecting a wireless hub to the TP-Link, or simply just to provide another ethernet point. Great for external rooms, upstairs areas where wi-fi won't reach or garages where you share a common power point. I would highly recommend this choice before anything else. Great product.

De Villiers, South Africa. 19 March 2015

Very easy to use, small, lightweight and unobtrusive. This is plug and play at its best. I ordered three (one for the router, one for the PC upstairs and one for the TV). Took them out of the box, plugged them into the nearest plug and voila: instant network. Streaming HD 1080p movies through Plex on the TV from the PC, no issues. Even with them plugged into a multi-plug with other appliances, they don't suffer. That having been said, DO NOT plug them into a plug with a surge protector. That definitely interferes with the data.

PJ, South Africa. 13 August 2014

Great product. Set up in 10 seconds, just plug and play. Works well even in house with old wiring. Much better than hassle of running cables throughout the roof

Tim Sterne, South Africa. 9 June 2016

Great addition to my network family. This is an adapter. You need the starter kit.

Dennis, South Africa. 4 August 2014

Very good purchase. Does what it is said to do. No ungainly cables to lay. Plug and play. What a pleasure.

raymond, South Africa. 18 December 2014

Very good product if you don't want lines running everywhere in your house and WiFi isn't enough.
It performs as advertised without a problem.

Andrew, South Africa. 7 July 2014

These work, but are not without issues. I installed three units and was getting reported link speeds of between 170Mbps and 230Mbps between the first two, which I was quite happy with, but the third unit would, for love or money, not connect faster than 11Mbps. I went through all the trouble shooting steps, and eliminated all possible issues. Even if the two units were literally pluged into the same double wall socket, they would still only link up at 11Mbps. Reseaerch on the web seems to indicate I am not alone with this issue.

So all in all, they ARE easy to set up and ARE working, but the link speed is definitely not as advertised.

Kevin, South Africa. 12 November 2014

Works as a pair of products. Easy to install. Works excelently! Brilliant product.

Grant, South Africa. 3 November 2016

it's good, works well once configured

John, South Africa. 4 August 2016

Very useful product. You need at least two adapters. Plug one in to an electrical socket close to the router and attach it to the router using the LAN cable supplied. Then plug another adapter into an electrical plug close to the PC that is situated far from the router. Link the second adapter to the (remote) PC via the supplied LAN cable. Works well, just as if the remote PC was attached directly to the router.

Dan, South Africa. 24 August 2016

Excellent product/. Just plug in, and have a wired network. Using it to hide a Raspberry Pi running OSMC behind a TV. Single cable to TV - power. Excellent!
