Amazon has now matched Newegg at $24.99.
Newegg has the TRENDnet Powerline 500 AV Nano Adapter Kit (TPL-406E2K) for $41.99. Using code EMCPAGP24 during checkout will drop your total down to $24.99 shipped (currently $4 more on Amazon). That’s $40 or 62% under the original asking price, matching the lowest we’ve seen this kit go for and one of the best prices we’ve seen on a Powerline kit of this nature from any manufacturer.
This kit comes with both the adapters you’ll need to get your Powerline network up and running. Along with a power saving mode, support for up to 7 more adapters and speeds of up to 500Mbps, Powerline systems like this can be a handy way to push hardwire internet access through a space without having to run cumbersome ethernet cables.
It has received a 4.1/5 star rating from over 340 Amazon customers and ships with a limited one year warranty. With your savings, you can get some highly rated, yet inexpensive ethernet cables and take a dent out of adding some Powerlines with WiFi to your network.
